I just wanted to say this score is one of the best i've heard this year. I really loved Harry Greggson Williams "Kingdom Of Heaven", but on its own this score John Williams has written for WOTW is really good. As atonal as it sounds, it feels fresh, tight and there is so much details to listen to in all the cues on the CD. It fits the movie perfectly as well. I usually am very negative on the idea to have film dialogs on score CDs, but since there is not much on this CD, i guess its acceptable. It seems that Decca Records does this quite often. Another example is Han Zimmers score CD for "Hannibal" (Excellent romantic score by the way).
