I had never heard of Brian Tyler before, but I picked up this CD as soon as I heard the music in the trailers for the epic min series "Children of Dune".
And indeed, it was more than worth the money I spent on it!
Brian Tyler is definitly a rising star in the world of film music. "Children of Dune" is, in fact, by far the most enjoyable musical journey through Frank Herbert's universe that exists today.
It has both sweeping themes, massive orchestral cues, as well as beautiful ethnic and vocal passages á la "Gladiator".
All in all, this is a fantastic score that should be given more attention.
It will defintly be on my "Best of 2003" list when the year is over.
