The main theme starts quitly with pan flutes,then wind brasses/brasses join just for a moment,this is followed by pan flutes combined with strings,and finally,the theme ends in a magnificent orchestra work.Battle Montage is a real moving track,full of uplifting tracks - if you are sad,and you would like to be happier,then you must listen to this track.There are beautiful,idyllic themes such as the War Is Over,thoughtful tracks such as Realization,rather sad tracks such as The Day Forth.The last two tracks revisit all the major themes,and the last minute of the final track, entitled Farewell To My King is breath-takingly beautiful in terms of composition,sound quality and enjoyment.There are some seemingly pointless tracks such as the Training March and the Imperialist Waltz,however,these are required because of the story.You may even enjoy Training March if you have patriotic at a degree.Imperialist Waltz is the only disappointment for me,it is only useful to practice classic dances such as the waltz.This score strenght lies in the fact that it is very thought-provoking.Basil Poledouris,as always hits the right buttons to fascinates you with its sheer power of his music.All tracks are so emotionally rich that you can easily find yourself in the middle of a battle,or in a quiet and beautiful place.That' s exactly where the strenght of Poledouris' lies.Sadly,he is rarely used for writing music for films with popular themes.
To put it in a nutshell,this score is worth every penny to send on.A faith of buy.
