5.0 out of 5 stars Love it.
Hans Zimmer is a genius and fans of his soundtracks will surely enjoy this latest compilation. There is some opera mixed in but it blends so well to evoke the scenes it related to. Definitely a great buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hans Zimmer repeating himself...
Zimmer is either a genius (Inception), an entertaining composer (The Dark Knight) or a complete over-the-top one (Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tide).

Here, he goes completely over the top and gives us "more of the same" with a small twist. Repetitions are legions, bombastic orchestras are here to either sound deafening just because he can do it...

3.0 out of 5 stars Hans Zimmer repeating himself..., Dec 11 2013

This review is from: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Audio CD)
Zimmer is either a genius (Inception), an entertaining composer (The Dark Knight) or a complete over-the-top one (Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tide).

Here, he goes completely over the top and gives us "more of the same" with a small twist. Repetitions are legions, bombastic orchestras are here to either sound deafening just because he can do it or to bring some sort of musical pathos. Needless to say, most of the arrangements are good, but none of them equal the first movie's musical brilliance and steampunk feel.

Fans of Zimmer's work may be more fond of his scores but I still need the "getting used to" moment to find where his work grabs me.
