Some of the music was just beautiful, and most of the choral work was amazing. The last two tracks are, as most if not all people have said, the best on the album. However, i do wonder why the rest of the music wasn't as engaging. Certainly most of it was well-constructed, but half the tracks just couldn't grab me. Some were just monotone drumming with chords being played over them, and the battle music, while having a nice drumbeat and being decent, was somewhat of a disappointment. 4 stars, but certainly not the 5-star classic that's being annointed here. If you seek a more engaging and impressive east-west merger score, seek The Promise
