thanks for your feedback. i find the worst thing about black hawk down not so much the music itself, but the way it was released on CD. Very little of the actual film material was used in the film. While it is still interesting, I still yearn for some of the tracks from the movie - after all, the whole point is that its ment to revolve around the memorabilia of the film.

However, it has good points, I like vale of plenty and mogadishu blues. It is also good that 15 minutes of unreleased material was included on the special edition double dvd.

Being able to hear all 9 minutes of synchrotone on the album is awesome. I soooo wish they'd used more of it. I find it far more terrifying than the other combat cues.

Finally, has anyone noticed that the tempo/pitch of a film, when released commercially on video or dvd, is slightly faster than the film version? I play around whith Nero Wave Editor and I can change the transposition of the music. I loaded Hunger and changed it to + 1 semitone and turned the fine tuning to -50. this is as close as I've got to the faster sound of a vhs/dvd release. To my surprise, this little difference makes a huge emotional change. Baaba Maal's singing sounds far more sad and moving. I must have hit a very minor chord. It's an improvement. I'll have to try to make an mp3 or wma example sometime. Those of you with the capabilities to alter the sound like this would do good to have a go, as it makes an amazing difference with all the tracks.
