Barnes & Noble
Pearl Harbor is poised to follow in the tradition of the apocalyptic holiday-weekend blockbuster Armageddon, which was fueled by Aerosmith's heart-tugging ballad "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing." Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Michael Bay hope to score once again at the box office and on the pop charts, this time with country star Faith Hill leading the charge with her power ballad "There You'll Be," penned by Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren. The remainder of the Hollywood epic's soundtrack comes courtesy of Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer The Lion King, Gladiator.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Michael Bay hope to score once again at the box office and on the pop charts, this time with country star Faith Hill leading the charge with her power ballad "There You'll Be," penned by Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren. The remainder of the Hollywood epic's soundtrack comes courtesy of Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer The Lion King, Gladiator. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Japanese attack on U.S. soil, which precipitated America's entry into World War II, Zimmer's score conveys the sense of desperation felt by American military personnel and the terror of Hawaii's civilians. On "Tennessee," Zimmer's repeated use of a solitary piano is especially expressive, and the gentle piano and muted horns of "Brothers" gradually soars into the stirring song "...And Then I Kissed Him." The score climaxes with the dramatic "December 7th," which swoons with gorgeous string arrangements and assistance from a vocal choir. This triumphant soundtrack honors the heroism of both the Americans who lost their lives that fateful day and those who lived to tell the tragic tale of Pearl Harbor. Andrew Velez

    wow

    this movie came out in 2001 and i have just seen it a few weeks ago. i is now one of my favorite movies. i ask a lot of people and mostly guys say they dont like it because of the actors (they're just jealous) and because it was stupid, but i didn't think it was stupid. i mean who cares if there's too much romance it adds character to the story. and so what if they don't show men with guts pouring out of them, they still showed enough to make someone sad and realize what happened on that day. i fell in love with the music right when i saw the movie and i've been meaning to get the soundtrack because the songs make me cry everytime i listen to them. i love this movie!

    BEST EVER!

    I only watched Pearl Harbor in World History for the first time. I didn't get to see the end of it cuz I had to leave. So this weekend I"m going to a friends house and watching the whole thing this time. BUt what I did see was the best. I absolutely love the movie. And Josh Harnett is the hotter of him and Ben Affleck. But thats not really the point although it does make even more sad for what happens to Danny at the end. I feel so bad about it. I don't have the soundtrack to this movie yet but I'm going to get it. I love this cd.

    Simply the best!

    This was by far one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard (and all I listen to are soundtracks). Everytime I hear it I relive the movie in my mind. It makes me smile and cry at the same time knowing that the US was able to pull together after such a brutal attack!

    Awsome soundtrack

    The songs on the Pearl Harbor soundtrack add so much to the movie. You can feel the saddness and the emotion of the movie and how people felt during the attacks through the mucic. It is a brillant soundtack, I highly reccomend it.

    A beautiful theme repeated so many times that...

    ...I think my head will burst. The main theme is OK, the Japanese theme is obnoxious, and the movie was obnoxious. The Faith Hill song is certainly listenable, but again, there is only so many times that we can hear that damnable theme! To comment on the many complaints about the briefness of the album - if it were any longer, I am utterly certain that my head would burst. It may be a 3-hour movie, but I've heard enough. Buy it if you must, but preferably download it to see if you like it. On a side note, I would like to post for the record that nearly all of the fans of this soundtrack are teenage girls with crushes on Josh Hartnett. Coincidence? I think not.

    Pearl Harbor Is #1

    Pearl Harbor is one of the best soundtracks there is on the market. I think it maybe even better that Titanic. The soundtrack goes in order as in the movie. If you don't have this Soundtrack, you need to buy it now.

    This is one of the best movies Ive ever had the pleasure of seeing

    What an incredible movie! Its absolutly amazing how it makes you feel as if your right there when it happend. It really captures that period of time and even though it is set in tragedy it makes you want to go back to that period of time when men were men and everything was so romantic. The soundtrack is also wonderfull! I love the song ''Tennesee''

    Great Soundtrack! A must buy! Josh Hartnett Rules!

    I first got this soundtrack because I loved the Faith Hill song ''There you'll Be''. After listening to the whole soundtrack I loved it. My other favorite song is ''Tennesee''. It's a beautiful song. I love the movie too! So please buy the soundtrack and (if you haven't) see the movie! You don't know what you're missing!

    Pearl Harbor

    The movie was great and the sound track was an emphasis to all of the scenes....It was very emotional and well written, it completed the movie.

    Pearl Harbor

    I loved the movie, I love this soundtrack, I am a little disappointed by how short it is! I think it should be at least an hour which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5! But great music for what there is.

    Gorgeous soundtrack fits hand in hand with movie

    After seeing Pearl Harbor, I was incredibly moved, and the spectacular music only enhances this phenomenal movie. Faith Hill's song ''There You'll Be'' is beautiful, and the classical pieces, such as Tennesse, make me cry. The listener can re-watch all the highlights of the movie in their minds eye. Whether or not you have seen Pearl Harbor, or even heard any of the tracks on this c.d., the music will completely sweep you away. Probably the best movie soundtrack I have ever come in contact with.
