The following thoughts might infuriate Zimmer afficiandos, so I give you a fair chance of leaving this post NOW ...
Ok, you chose to stay, so here it comes.
To me, this is certainly the most unimaginative Soundtrack of 2006 so far. The main theme from Kingdom Of Heaven is presented here in full glory with almost the same instrumentation, and the string rhythm makes some tracks sound like Batman Begins II. I hear Munich's theme (even with the full blown violins), I hear Memoirs of a Geisha, I hear the solo female, I hear synths, blaring horns ... in short, I hear rehashing Zimmer at his crappy best.
It's great to see that one of the highest paid composers around can't manage to avoid "stunning similarities" (mildly put) to scores released within the past few months.
At least Horner steals from composer of the last century ...
