Amistad is one of the best scores of John Williams.The opening track "dry your tears,afrika",it just haunts you like anything because john has just rewrote the real story of africans. As for as john williams concerned, he is just a great story teller through his composition. I do recommend that the soundtrack lovers should not ignore this masterpiece. I considered John Williams is one of the best composer I have ever seen in my lifetime. Hatsoff to john williams!
