When I read the poster ad prior to the release of the Patriot, I was excited to read the film was directed by Roland Emmerich. I was surprised by the absence of David Arnold among the credits. More surprising still was John Williams name on the credits. Shortly after the movie was released I purchased the soundtrack and it quickly became one of my most favorite William-scores. The Patriot theme is very similar to the brassy theme from La Amistad. Nothing wrong with it. The Patriot is a beautiful score. The main theme is played in about half the tracks of the album. No complaints. John Williams sure knows how to give the emotional feeling to an epic. Had David Arnold it would have been very different. Buy the album. Enjoy the music. Especially the first track.
I recommend La Amistad soundtrack as well.
