From one of the best composers in modern cinema, one of the best soundtracks to a movie of this kind. Bombastic, Patriotic and filled to the edge with dramatic synths and orchestras. This is top action music, in the same class as The Rock. No doubt since Hans Zimmer also worked on the Rock, signing his incredible style like no one else.
There are only 5 songs on Crimson Tide, but they are very good. Alabama is totally unbelivable, 22 minutes non stop wonderful filmscore. Mutiny is bombastic and explosive, it just kicks you right into the sub and back again!
Its so hard to write a good, serious review of this album. It just raises your hair and kinda takes your stomach on an epic journey, an emotionalfilled ride thru the best moments of the movie. The Rock did the same thing, however I have not yet decided which one is the best.
There are other sub soundtracks out there, most well known is the equal Hunt for Red October, and comparing them is hard. Very hard. They both got their up`s and downs, but my feeling is that Crimson Tide sounds very american(NOT a bad thing!), while Red October sounds more..real. They both excel most of the competition of soundtracks on the market, but ends up staggering each others sides...just like the two main characters in the movie.
I give up writing a good review for this one, just buy it and love it. It is just so fantastic.
