This soundtrack is written for a story that is about a Soviet submarine,called the Red October,which ordered by the Russian government to launch a nuclear rocket on USA and North America,so it contains a high number of Soviet choirs.To illustrate,that the submarine always go onward,and the sailors do not care about any of the dangers that await for them,there is a rather powerful,yet traditional marching theme named as Hymn To Red october performed by a powerful brass section and an outstanding string section,accompained by a Soviet choir.Most of the tracks contain heavy percussion which at places even surpass the percussion that can be heard in Starship Troopers.Russian/Soviet music elements are mixed with either action music elements or dramatic music.This soundtrack is another interesting Poledouris' soundtrack,and as always,highly enjoyable.
