Good,but could have been better   Thursday, August 31, 2006 (10:37 a.m.) 

There are six tpyes of tracks contained by it:heroic,bombastic,powerful and
patriotic to illustrate the determination and bravery of human pilots against
their Kilrathi enemy,dramatic to reflect to the the losses and hardships of war,sad and elegiac to illustrate the losses of individual persons,soft and gentle to reflect to the beauty of space,breath-takingly exciting action tracks,and there
are some tracks with extreme synth and electric guitar use.Problem is,that the music is too simplistic and does not contain enough interesting orchestral elements and motifs to maintain the interest of the listener from the beginning to the end,although there are some arguably excellent tracks contained by it.Another problem is the overuse of orchestra and synths.

Don't be daft. Just watch the movie and _listen_ to the music. Whether it's a squadron of Rapiers, Lancaster bombers or P51 Mustangs the emotive effect is exactly the same. Try to intellectualise it and it fails, this is targeted directly at the gut and analysis is futile. You either feel it or you don't. I just watched it again tonight and the nostalgia kick is in absolute max turbo mode.

I think the score was composed outside the US? If so I am surprised there wasn't more music on the sdtk? I think Kiner composed about an hours worth of music. I'm all for an expanded release but I am being selfish I guess..
