Dialogue   Sunday, February 4, 2001 (3:17 p.m.) 

Great score, terrible album. There's nothing I hate more than dialogue stamped over top of great music. What were they thinking?

Maybe we can get a non-dialogue bootleg? Or a separate release altogether?

i disagree...tracks 1 and 10 are phenominal because of the chilling dialogue done by Sir Anthony Hopkins...for the people who haven't seen the movie but have the soundtrack...those tracks set the mood of the movie..they know what type of movie it is...sure without the dialogue it would be good...but the dialogue is what makes those 2 tracks 2 of the best tracks on the soundtrack

I agree, most of the time dialogue ruins the album. Especially with the case of John Williams Angelas Ashes. But here I think it works very well. The dialogue is always very good and well spoken by Hopkins, and fits the music. Not to mention the certain camp quality Hannibal has to it. I think it works.

Personally, i love the dialogue, while this album is mostly instumental, (one of the qualities i appreciate), i think it adds ambiance and romanticism to the tracks, and it is not overdone. i could listen to Anthony Hopkins voice as "Hannibal" forever, and the recitation in italian (Latin?) is lovely. Overall, i find that the spare dialogue enhances, rather than detracts. It comes across as poetry.

I certainly believe, the dialogue in this sountrack serves to enhance the mood of the movie as well as the character of Hannibal Lecter, the knoledge of this character and the romanticism that seems to flow from him. Definitely I wouldn't like this soundtrack so much if it didn't have the voice of Hopkins in it.
so I agree with those who regard the dialogue in this wonderful soundrack as an enhancer rather that a degradant. Thanks.

Dialog: great or disappointing ?   Thursday, July 26, 2001 (2:07 p.m.) 

I always have been thinking that music is an universal language by which mankind try to comunicate emotions. I think this is what it is usually called as "art". In this sense, I think Hans Zimmer is one of the most good artist at this time, able to touch people "soul's strings" with his music.
What about the dialogs on CD ? I know somweone can appreciate them, but personally I don't think they actually added any significant meaning to Hans' work. Moreover, what do you think will be the effect of the dialog to someone who doesn't speak English...and what about someone who has never seen the movie or is not interested on it ?
Music overcomes all language differences.

Ciao.
