This was only OK. When I watched the film, which I really liked, I felt attracted by the score. And I noticed, as well, that it didn't contain a theme in particular. It is more like random and unrythmic music. Even with all this cons I dediced to buy it. It impressed me a little bit because it turned out to be better than I hoped. When I visited, I noticed that two tracks contained Morgan Freeman's dialogue. And although I've never enjoyed dialogues over music in soundtracks, now I think that Freeman's inclusion in the soundtrack was a wonderfull idea. Specially because of what he says. The dialogue is absolutely great. The rest of the soundtrack it's a little annoying sometimes, because of its lack of thematic material. And the best track by far is "Escape from the City", which includes a small theme and a percussion that will leave spellbound. I think this score would have been better if it had sound like Jurassic Park.
