Overview

Composed in tandem with Media Ventures partners including Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams, Hans Zimmer's The Rock typifies the bigger-is-better film scoring sensibilities that defined Hollywood in the mid-'90s -- with its bombastic electronics, relentless bass, and blast-furnace eruptions of dissonance, the music is an overwhelming sensory experience, and virtually impossible to absorb over the course of a single sitting.

"The Rock" was a good movie, and this soundtrack borders on great. There aren't many songs, but the songs are pretty long (one's 14'25"). The middle songs all sounded the same to me, with a little deviation, but not much, but they were god songs. You realize that you know these songs already, whether it's through TV or movies, but it's a powerful ballad.

This is a pretty good soundtrack. There are only scores, no actual songs, but it still makes for a good soundtrack. However, some of the tracks sound the same and the only way you know when one song ends and another begins is the pause from the CD player, otherwise, it sounds like a continuous 60-minute song...
