Forget the movie, buy it for the music. This is the kind of once-in-a-decade score that delivers soul-reaching motifs you will always cherish. If you're looking for a "favorite CD" that will last you for more than a week, this is it.

This is a rare case where truly spectacular sci fi music was used in a horrible film. Arnold seems to have so much fun with his compositions, and it shows. Nearly every single track offers a power play between lush and powerful marches and delicate choirs. For example, the beautiful first track starts out in a uplifting march and transcends into a Orff like choir chant fest. Its power and mystery will engulf you. Many of the other tracks are as equally impressive, and the key word LOUD! On a final note, movie goers may recognize this music for it has been extenisvely used in movie previews, ie Volcano and Lost in Space. Enjoy, for this is the best!
