I remember very vividly the controversy this review took in 2004, and myself having gotten right into the mix. it's been 12 years since then, but my views are still the same. The film may be controversial and hard for some to take, but the music stands on its own as a masterpiece and by far john Debney's crowning achievement.

The problem with the music had always been the Original release. To watch the movie you would hear so much music, most of it haunting and atmospheric that never made it into the soundtrack. This always frustrated me. But once i saw the 2CD set available I didn't even hesitate to order it. Every single piece of memorable music in the film is in this album. I cried tears of joy listening to the 2CD set in all its glory. If you enjoy the music, get the Expanded 2 CD edition. It is leagues above the original.

Controversy aside, you have to judge the music on its own and not look at the subject matter associated with it. To enjoy this score will not convert you to Christianity, and if you are a Muslim, Allah will not strike you down for buying this CD. :-)
