Product Description


If there's one thing film producers and record executives like more than Success, it's Success Part II. Thus when Ridley Scott's high-tech sword 'n' sandal epic Gladiator scored both Golden Globe wins and Academy Award nods for Best Film and Best Score, it was a sure bet that another volume of Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard's music for the film couldn't be far behind. While not exactly leftovers, the tracks here sometimes point to the fact that there wasn't enough fresh material to fill this volume out, hence we get some remixed cues, a handful of familiar music with dramatic dialogue excerpts edited and superimposed (or misplaced, with decidedly mixed results), and even a beat-heavy, dance club mix of "Now We Are Free". With a little over half an hour of entirely fresh material and some souvenir dialogue snippets over the rest, there's enough here to please Gladiator die-hards. Also of note: guitarist Heitor Pereira's flamenco-flavored flourishes are better showcased throughout while "The Gladiator Waltz" serves up one of Zimmer's original synth demos (with a dash of Russell Crowe dialogue upfront), a dramatic amp-up of Holst's "Mars, the Bringer of War" that's a prime example of the composer's state-of-the-art digital orchestral conjuring. --Jerry McCulley

After being amazed by the first 'Gladiator' soundtrack, I was surprised and delighted to find a second offering. I was rather dissapointed to find that there really isn't much new here. Many of the tracks are the same songs as the first CD, the only change being in the instruments that are used. This often proves to be a change for the worse. At times its painful to hear the haunting echoes of Lisa Gerrard's wordless songs being marred by the intrusion of staccatto African drumbeats.
As for the new songs, many of them are far too short and mellow to be appreciated. The last half of the CD contains many songs that are just one or two minutes long. If you happen to be doing something else as you listen, you can barely tell they're there. But the CD has it good points. The 'Duduk of the North' is very well done and I don't think it's possible to grow tired of the battle theme, regardless of which version it is. The movie dialogue is well-chosen and skillfully placed.
If you absolutely adored the first soundtrack it will probably be worth your time to listen, but in the end you will find yourself returning to the original for your 'Gladiator' fix.

I LOVED the first Gladiator soundtrack, and I still to this day play it over and over.
Upon hearing about the release of a second "Gladiator" CD, my first reaction was excitement and I couldn't wait to hear it. Then I read that many of the songs on the second CD weren't even in the film, and I became skeptical. I thought that it might disappoint me, as I put the original soundtrack up on such a pedestal. Nevertheless I bought it. As I held it in my hand I immediately wanted a refund, as I was too scared that it would disappoint me and ruin such a good thing between me and my baby, "Gladiator" (LOL).
But something made me put it in my CD player and press "play" and boy am I glad I did. It's no wonder they made a second CD- Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard certainly know how to compose music! It makes me wish that the film was an hour longer, just so they could use all this unused music! Hans gives a wonderful commentary of the composition of these songs and what emotions he wanted each one to radiate. Some of the songs were actually put into various scenes of the movie, before finally being scrapped, and it's great to imagine what scene X would have been like with "this" particular track.
There are, of course, still many tracks on this CD that are in the movie- like the unforgettable scene where Maximus is riding frantically on his horse to reach his wife and son, and many other songs which are featured throughout the movie which have been mixed together with dialog from the movie.
Keep a special ear out for "Duduk of the North". This is so beautiful, and towards the end, Hans wrote in a Spanish theme, which is just indescribable. I play this one over and over and over.

Of course the first volume is better (!), but this one is full of some great moments and extra features! At first I groaned "Why do we need 2 remixes of 'Now We Are Free'?" but after listening to them again and again...and again I really enjoy them. There is a wonderful energy in them, especially in "Juba's Mix". I also really enjoyed hearing some of the melodies that they began with for the score or never used at all. There is a beautiful theme in "Duduk of the North" and "Rome Is the Light" is a gorgeous piece as well. My biggest delight, as someone who is crazy for Commodus, was track #7 - "Secrets". It is one of my favorite scenes in the film, ("You know I love you...") and this eerie piece - full of its evil and then seductive 'Commodus theme'- is a gem!! Most of the dialogue is misplaced but that doesn't really matter because it somehow seems to fit. All in all this is a really nice addition to the 'Gladiator' score and if you loved the first one you should really appreciate this one as well!

Although I am a big fan of the original Gladiator Soundtrack, I am displeased with this one. Most of the tracks are re-hashes of the same music from the original soundtrack with a few lines of dialog from the movie added. I was hoping for MORE new scores of music.
Here's what you'll get: -about 2 or 3 new scores that you've never heard before [which aren't all that great since you'll have nothing to associate the music with ... e.g. scenes from the movie] -the same music you already have [re-mixed] with dialog from the movie added in certain places
The title of my post is "The Search For More Money" because that's why this "sequel" soundtrack was created. They are capitalizing on the fact that people will buy this because they liked the first one. If you have the original soundtrack, save your money, you're not missing anything. If you don't have the original, this album might be fine for you, but I still recommend the original ... save your money and only buy ONE of them!

When I first heard that a second soundtrack would be released, I was ecstatic, awaiting eagerly for some more fine pieces of music as previously crafted by Hans Zimmer and Dead Can Dance's Lisa Gerrard. However, I was somewhat perturbed when I heard that it would contain small dialogue pieces. Aside from it being music that wasn't included from the movie, it seemed to be music that Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard had toyed around for a while and had decided to leave out.
However, when I finally listened to it I was pleasantly surprised. The small pieces of dialogue are from already memorable scenes of the movie and flow smoothly with the music (unlike other situations where it would be a horrid, annoying distraction).
I found most of the tracks to be quite pleasant, even while I found "Now We Are Free (Maximus Mix) to be near bizzarre, I imagine some will find it enjoyable, if not somewhat out of place. But as for the other versions of Now We Are Free, I found Juba's Mix to be undoubtably my favorite, even of the entire recording, what with its African sounding singing towards the end. Since I had grown up in South Africa, while I didn't actually recall seeing people singing as in that track, I found it a nostalgic moment recalling the people of that continent.
Other tracks that I found enjoyable were the pulsating, fast paced "Homecoming", the intriguing "Dudak of The North", and "Maximus", an interesting, heavily acoustic guitar driven. "The General Who Became A Slave" and "The Slave Who Became A Gladiator" were also pleasant surprises, including some left out music from the movie.
"The Gladiator Waltz" was also haunting hearing Russel Crowe's battle cries, and aside from others, "Figurines Yan Ching", an Oriental sounding version of Now We Are Free by Lisa Gerrard.
