Outstanding music   Wednesday, August 30, 2006 (7:33 a.m.) 

There are three types of music contained by it:dramatic,sad and elegiac,and tracks which are all three at the same time.The choir intensify the dramatic elements to a point where the dramtatic intensity of music are almost unbearable.The virtuoso use of strings,the creative use of brasses,piano and percussion are excellent.The music reflects to the subconscious of the two main characters,David Dunn and Elijah Price.Elijah Price wants to prove that David Dunn is an unbreakable superhero,and therefore,he cannot be killed or harmed,David Dunn,rejects the idea,although he suspect in his subconscious that he is no ordinary man : he is rarely ill,he has an accident where he didn' t even hurt,and he detect with his senses if someone wants to do something bad,or wants to commit a crime.Yet,he struggles with his ambivalent emotions,he know that he is no ordinary man,but he he just want to be an ordinary man with an ordinary life,he is no intention of serving the needs of society as a superhero.Therefore,the music is highly emotional and highly thought-provoking.Highly recommended.
