I said so because it has everything that has good in movie music:nice choir work,beautiful symphonic orchestra and suits well to the place where the film is set:Alaska and Canada,the cold North - the only place where gold can be found.The music perfectly illustrates the hardness of the journey in the cold North and the painful work that was made by dogs and humans alike in order to pull the sled - which is hard physical work - in cues such as Buck Pulls The Sled,Hard Journey, Winter Sunrise - Forbidding Mountain Pass.In Buck' s Journey you can almost feel the sorrow and the pain of the dog Buck.In tracks such as the latter half of Leaving For The Yukon and Buck Leads The Sled Team you can feel the joy felt by Buck as he become the leader of the dogs who pull the sled,and the joy that was felt by humans and dogs alike as they pull the sled despite the harsh conditions.In Letting Buck Go it was illustrated that Buck wants to remain with the man who saved him,but also want to obeyed the call of the wild.Being Stalked-Indian Attack illustrated the rage of Buck when he massacre most of the indians because they killed the only man he truly loves.John' s Death-The Legend-Finale illustrate the pain felt by the dog when he realize that the man he loves died,and in the end he obeyed the call of the wild.The peace found by Buck is illustrated in the track named as Meeting Jessie.The fact that the peace of Buck is about to end is illustrated in Farewell To Jessie-Return To The Cabin.Another wonderful track is Spring Morning which illustrates the beauty of the changing nature.All in all,this soundtrack is recommended wholeheartedly for anyone who like symphonic music and interesting orchestral solutions.And if you listen to it while reading the actual book by Jack London you might even find it more beautiful.
