If you listen to this music - composed by Hans Zimmer - you notice that it's nothing like the usual war-movie sounds (a lot of brass, pounding drums, etc.).Instead it's music that makes you dream away and it takes you to beautiful and peaceful places where you have never been before. The music is quiet with a simple but beautiful melody, sensitive and sometimes a little sad but never sentimental. This sadness and the fact that on two or three occasions you hear eerie voices and sounds, reminds you that there is a war going on.
It's a soundtrack you can listen to without having seen the movie.

Dear Mr. Brad H. from Ohio:
I am intrigued, to say the least, to learn that what you call the rhetoric is not relevant to the music, for in fact I recapitulate what the artists (Malick and Zimmer) had to think about when making the movie and its score. And, I was offended, to say the least, to learn that in reviewing music, we must either repeat the most conventional sentiments (for these, it appears, are always "relevant") or somehow maintain the on-the-face-of-it absurd proposition that music points nowhere and is noise.
And I am very offended that the moderator of this group at Amazon has inserted your offtopic complaint. Your post is not "about" the music at all whereas there is a rather short chain of relevance between every sentence of my review, and the music.
A thoroughgoing application of "relevance" would mean that there would be one valid post of the form "I liked it" or "I did not like it". This would be useful to market research only, not to real flesh-and-blood listeners.
Your review is "about" your conventionality and authoritarian streak; for Malick's film is a comment about those who, like Steven Spielberg, glorified modern, industrial war as somehow heroic and who are war criminals, responsible for inveigling a new generation into a new "police action" in Iraq.
In my review I provide information that is useful to the listener of the Zimmer score who may very well be ignorant both of the film and the history of Oceania. It is for example not possible to understand the a capella singing in the score without understanding how pervasive Christianity is in Oceania.

This is in response to the review entitles: "God yu tekkem laeg blong me" by Edward G. Nilges.
Mr. Nilges, this is a place for reviewing music not for spouting unsubstantiated political Rhetoric. I am not writing this to argue with you, as this is not the place, I am simply requesting that when writing a review please do just that, REVIEW the product in question. Your overly long so called "review" makes very little significant reference to the Thin Red Line musical score and is riddled with opinionated and irrelevant political and religious undertones. If you wish to rant about the war or the reasoning behind it please do so elsewhere, this is not the appropriate place. I ask the board moderators for Amazon to please remove both this message and the one entitled: "God yu tekkem laeg blong me" by Edward G. Nilges, as neither are relevant to the musical score in question.

Of course, the movie is about how, and in what particular way, soldiers become philosophers at the horizon of death, and for this reason Hans Zimmer composed an almost New Age score. The movie is neither pro nor anti war in the sense that the very question of being pro or anti war is a sick joke at a place like al Kut, an Nasirya or Najaf as I write, for the philosophers of the USMC. As it was at Guadalcanal, is now, and forever shall be as long as we prefer Monkey Boys to golden lions, and say to the prophets "you shall not prophesy."
The best part of this is the entry of one Melanesian hymn, God yu tekkem laeg blong me. Melanesian church music was brought to Fiji and the rest of Melanesia by Methodists who'd learned to sing in four-part harmony during the 18th century.
During the 18th century, ordinary men were forbid to sing in High church ceremonies and, when jobless, were targets of the recruiting sergeant and press-gang. Many of them, after years of rum, sodomy and the lash, turned to Methodism as a way of reasserting their dignity and honor which was in the process of being industrialized for the profits of London merchants and used at "sparkling" naval actions and glorious victores in which God's vassals dropped and died.
The survivors walked away and became lay preachers, some in the South Seas, and they taught the warring aborigines (who it appears were due to isolation trapped in their own warlike cycle and at the end of their particular tether) how to sing together.
Today, Methodism is a dominant faith in Fiji and the rest of Melanesia and it has its own history.
As I write, not a few of God's vassals would like a ticket not home but out, and instead are being picked up by black freighters and informed by Sarge that this is the only world there is.

A haunting and poetic soundtrack.
One of the reasons that this movie is so great is the beautiful music and this CD captures it perfectly, some people have complained about small sections left out etc etc, I didn't notice so it doesn't bother me, all I know is this is probably the only movie score I know that I can actually sit down and listen to and think about it out of context of the movie.
The best part of the disc is the first 5 tracks, they flow well and are just beautiful whilst retaining a subtle hint of menace and foreboding.
If you liked the film or your just a fan of great film music I'd say you can't go wrong with buying this CD.
