I got this CD a few weeks ago, and I can't stop listening to it! It's phenomenal! It can be very soothing or very stirring, depending on which track you listen to. My favorite tracks, by far, are Shadowlands and The Endless Night, they're GREAT!! I highly recomend buying this CD, even if you didn't like the movie music all that much.
