It probably is the standout track as it somewhat different from the other tracks AND it features during the revelation/finale of the film which it did seem to suit.
I do like it yet it seems to be missing a little something somehow. I'm not totally convinced the mixing is quite right (or at least my definition or expectation of "quite right" ) . The cymbal crash (as Langdon drops to his knees in the film ) feels rather unclear when usually it pierces the other sounds around it. Also the choir seems to be rather undermixed . It perhaps should have had the mix of "Resurrection" from "Passion of the Christ" - that choir really does blow your head off!!
Still - a decent track and some other nice segments on the album.
