Product Description


Hans Zimmer's lush and romantic Pearl Harbor album inverts every expectation of what a World War II epic should sound like. Zimmer previously explored the American Pacific war in The Thin Red Line (1998), though this time he takes a more commercial direction. The programme opens with the power ballad by Faith Hill, "There You'll Be", establishing in the wake of Titanic (1997) this as blockbuster mixing romance with maritime disaster hoping for a share of the success that came Celine Dion's way. The eight orchestral cues concentrate on romance and the pity of war, ranging from noble melancholy to an elevated spiritual purity. The choral writing incorporated into "December 7th" continues a direction Zimmer explored with Hannibal (2001), where he similarly underlined the heart rather than the horror. Only during "War" do the snare drums finally arrive for a rousing slice of patriotic and exciting action with the military sensibility continued into the valedictory "Heart of a Volunteer". The heavily processed orchestra is familiar from Zimmer's Gladiator (2000), the composer continuing his knack of delivering an instantly memorable theme which retains interest through numerous moods and variations. Augmented by wistful piano and ethereal choir, Pearl Harbor is melodic and accessible and has every chance of being the most popular instrumental soundtrack of 2001. --Gary S Dalkin

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Jan. 8 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very good buy, especially if you appreciate music and/or enjoy the movie.
The album length is perfect, not too long or short. I would recommend this to people who appreciate good quality music and/or enjoy the movie. The music is absolutely perfect in every way.... which is to be expected of Hans Zimmer. His other soundtracks (like Inception, Prince of Egypt, and Gladiator) always exceed the expectations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! May 27 2001
By Jerry
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack has come under much criticism. Because of this I was skeptical of buying the cd, but I did anyways. This cd is beautiful! Some people believe that it is too short (about 46 minues), but I feel that it is just right; not too much, not too little. Hans Zimmer does a great job of capturing the essence of the movie. Faith Hill is not one of my favorite singers (far from it), but her song is a great song, deseving of an academy award nomination. Tracks 2 through 5 tell the story of the love triangle within the movie. Tracks 6 through 8 accompany the attack on Pearl Harbor and its aftermath. Finally, track 9 does a wonderful job of connecting these two elements of the film into a great conclusion. While I usually buy soundtracks to movies I want to see as soon a they come out (usually before the movie itself comes out), I would reccommend buying this cd after seeing the movie. It will give you a better sense of feel to the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy CD June 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD is nothing short of amazing. I can't comprehend how Hanz Zimmer can capture the sounds of such stunning beauty. If you love orchestral arrangements, you absolutely have to buy this album. It tops Lord of the Rings, Armegeddon, and Gladiator. I can't stress it enough, IT IS WELL WORTH THE MONEY!

2.0 out of 5 stars Badly recycled Morricone and Barry April 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
In the delightful comic romp 'Pearl Harbor,' dashing (as opposed to merely "runny") pilots Josh Hartnett and Ben Affleck fall in love with the same woman just as some wacky Japanese never-do-wells decide to attack the U.S. of A. (Thank you, Michael Bay, for making us laugh about love... again.) Needless to say, hilarious hijinks and tomfoolery ensure, scored by Hans Zimmer with an unusual lack of enthusiasm and a theme that sounds like it was fished straight out of Ennio Morricone's trash can. Most of the action music, again a cross between 'Gladiator' and 'The Peacemaker,' is provided by one of his goons, Klaus Harry-Gregson-Jablonsky. Utterly forgettable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simply a great find Jan. 22 2004
By Holly
Format:Audio CD
"Pearl Harbor" has a great variety of classical sounds from relaxing, sad songs to songs that are almost dancable. If you're a fan of classical music, this is a MUST for your collection! Hans Zimmer is just a wonderful composer, having created GREAT albums for The Lion King, Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, The Prince of Egypt, and much more. Well, he's done it again with Pearl Harbor! There is something in this CD for everyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alot was left out on this one Dec 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
I love listening to film scores, they are my most favorite genre of music. Hans Zimmer is a wonderful film composer, but he has done alot better in the past. Actually his music for pearl harbor is pretty good, however alot of his score for the film was left out on this soundtrack album. Most notably for me was the scoring for the main pearl harbor attack sequence. There is at least half an hour of good action scoring during that sequence that never made it on the CD. Especially that very heroic piece of music that is heard when the 2 male lead characters finally get their planes up in the air and fight back against the Japs. Their is also alot of big band music that was left off the CD score. This could have easily been a double disc soundtrack album, or at the very least there should have been "more music from" type of album released. In my opinion Hans Zimmer should keep making his soundtrack albums sound more like such past works of his as: The Rock, Broden Arrow, Crimson Tide, The Peacemaker, and Drop Zone. Hope to hear more of this kind of album in the future, Good Luck Hans!

5.0 out of 5 stars This soundtrack is awesome! Aug. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't expecting this CD to be that good but I was totally wrong. Faith Hill does a wonderful job as she sings "There You'll Be" with emotion! I love her voice and every time I hear this song, I 'm amazed of how she sings so powerful and with emotion. I love the other 8 tracks,too. This soundtrack is totally worth buying. You won't be disappointed.
