I am so sorry, but I can not find any weak or wrong musical thing in this originally soundtrack.I know Zimmer`s music very well, I have been listened many of his scores(including "The Lion King","The Peacemaker" and "Crimson Tide"), but at this time my impressions are overwhelming and grandious. There are some musical links to Schostakovich and Vasks,also to Gorecki and Holst, as well as to Garbarek and Jarrett, and I like it so much. Like usually,Zimmer from a simply fragmentary film music(as we can heard it in the movie)made an entire, unbroken symphonic piece, but this time this piece is with an enormous perfectly form,number of varied composition techniques, brilliant orchestration and all kind of emotional moods.These all things give the Gladiator soundrack status of, unquestionably, one of the most genially symphonic masterpieces ever written.And it`s not only my very emotional impression, because I am also a composer. I have been learned from Zimmer`s music a lot, and especially from "Gladiator".No doubt that this music CAN live and exist without seeing this movie,I think.Isn`t it right?

A great fan of Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard.
