Excellent score   Saturday, August 26, 2006 (2:53 a.m.) 

By say so,I do not think it is better than Glory or Gettysburg,I find all three scores good on their own right.All three are different scores with different musical tones : while Gods and Generals and Glory are soft and gentle,highly emotional (notably sad) with only a few action cues,Gettysburg is a more complex score with both a lot of emotional and heroic,patriotic and bombastic music (be advised:in my words,complex doesn' t mean better!).Gods And Generals are mainly string-driven with soft and gentle brasses,and outstanding piano work,excellent percussion,excellent woodwind play and an ethereal and extremely beautiful choir to reflect either to the losses of individual men,or their bravery,which means they keep fighting for a better future despite not their is not much hope for survive.The Uillean Pipes(traditional Irish instrument) are also used,since the film is about an Irish man who volunteer into the army.All in all,an extremely beautiful score which has great impact on your emotions.
