Really, I agree with Christian that the later tracks contain some great music. But that's no reason to ignore the earlier cues. "The Submarine" contains the boldest performance of the main theme, and was heard in two of the Atlantis trailers. While "Milo's Turned Down" is quite mickey mousey, "Atlantis Is Waiting" gives a sense of building tension and excitement. "The Leviathan" is one of the CD's few action cues, and Howard prooves once again that his pounding, intense action music is all but unmatched. "Bedding Down" is rather quiet, but "The Journey" offers us some truely heroic and majestic performances of the title theme which lead into "Fireflies," another good action Cue.
I say, listen to the CD starting with track 2, the first score track, and let yourself be immersed in yet another fantastic James Newton Howard score. ****
