Product Description


If the basic thematic elements of this Bruce Willis star vehicle--American military unit gets cut off behind enemy lines in a guerilla-besieged African backwater--have parallels with Ridley Scott's fierce, unrelenting Black Hawk Down, composer Hans Zimmer (who scored both films) has conjured an entirely different musical soul for this adventure. Where his Black Hawk score turned on a gritty, often violent clash of musical cultures, his work here is richly introspective and tinged with a mature sense of melancholy. African rhythms and melodic elements bubble to the surface throughout, but in subtly powerful ways that often recall the best of Peter Gabriel's world music ventures. Zimmer has again impressively expanded his repertory company approach to scoring as well, with veteran collaborators Lisa Gerrard and Heitor Pereira joined here by Steve Jablonsky, Andreas Vollenweider and Lebo M. (who's written and performed the score's passages of African poetry). The result is a moody, evocative score whose quiet grace recalls the composer's masterful work for The Thin Red Line; another satisfying tribute to the power of musical understatement. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music; disrupting chants March 11 2004
By Lee
Format:Audio CD
The score features some great music by Zimmer - he never disappoints me. The trouble I had with this CD comes from the African chanting. I'm very big on music from movies like this, and the chants interrupt the flow of the score. Kopano Part II is so sad sounding if you can ignore the chanting. That piece would be so much better without it. Honestly, it sounds like a retarded person wandered into the recording studio and stole a mic. Lebo M. literally just yells over the music. It takes away the emotion, in my opinion.
4 stars for Hans; I had to dock one for those annoying chants.

With all of Zimmer's music, you are there, not at the concert but in the field. The music is always amazing. If you liked Black Hawk Down and the Thin Red Line, you will like this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zimmer Does it Again Nov. 8 2003
By jordan
Format:Audio CD
Wow! Once again he comes through with another amazing score to a great movie. A must for Hans Zimmer fans! If you only got the final track, it would be worth it. A classic "Zimmer sounding" song

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo Hans Oct. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Hans Zimmer returns to full orchestration and brings us a gem. Track 1 is moving, Track 9 is the best (a well suited action piece) it goes well with action plus a little bit of track 9 is sort of catchy and track 10 is a good vocal piece. tRACK 9 is my personal favourite. 10 tracks around about 43 minutes worth of African like music.

5.0 out of 5 stars "African Chants with high action cues ~ Zimmer" April 13 2003
By J. Lovins TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Director Antoine Fuqua brings to the screen "Tears of the Sun", a film similar to "Behind Enemy Lines", "Black Hawk Down" and "Bat 21" all winners, but the difference is Bruce Willis, Tom Skerritt and Monica Bellucci a very strong cast for this action thriller. Now enters Hans Zimmer, the directors choice for composer ~ who once again takes us on a classic musical journey ~ this time into African rhythms, beautiful solos and choral arrangements. Varese Records along with behind the scenes music-people like Steve Jablonsky, Lisa Gerrard, Heitor Pereira, Lebo M., Andreas Vollenweider and Jim Dooley send chills down our spins with this (should be) award winning score album.
A couple of stand outs ~ "YEKELENI PART 1/"MIA'S LULLABYE", this theme could make time stand still, it's that beautiful ~ "THE JOURNEY/KOPANO PART III", the final track has the "Zimmer Signature" all the stops are pulled out with brilliant orchestration, outstanding arrangement and total blow your mind performance ~ gotta love it!
This CD can stand own its own for listen ability ~ musical style of "Lion King", "Thin Red Line", "Gladiator", "Black Hawk Down" and "Power of One" if you enjoyed any of the mentioned, this score's for you and did I mention this is a keeper.
Total Time: 46:38 on 10 Tracks ~ Varese Records 302-066-457-2 ~ (3/18/2003)
