The Finale track is probably one of the best tracks I've heard all year. I will be following at Zanelli's career with great interest. He's managed to use Zimmer themes into a very outstanding and compatible piece. I wanted For God and for Country, Ride, The Railroad Waits for No One to wow me but they were just passable at best. Still, it was much better than the debacle known as Man of Steel where you had both a horrible director and a composer who's a shell of his former self.
