This album release is a live concert recording of performance of various ZIMMER's popular works,which include tracks from GLADIATOR,MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2,THE LION KING,THIN RED LINE,DRIVING MISS DAISY,and others.
The whole album contains mostly light works which are not from those popular JERRY BRUCKHEIMER films.There is only one strong track in the album,GLADIATOR's "AM I NOT MERCIFUL".
The best notable track,is "ETHAN AND NYAH" from MI2.Recomposed/remixed to a guitar concerto,it brings the listeners to a whole new experience away from the current accoustic version from HOLLYWOOD RECORDS release.
THIN RED LINE in this album had been given a special treatment too,a extended version that runs 9mins++ compared to the previously release from RCA RECORDS.
This is a definate album not to be missed to any ZIMMERs' music lovers.Although there is no JERRY BRUCKHEIMER films musics(PEARL HARBOR,THE ROCK,CRIMSON TIDE) and other action film musics in this album,this is still a impressive album.
Hope that there will be an another release of the ZIMMER's ACTION compilation from DECCA,which features THE ROCK,CRIMSON TIDE,PEARL HARBOR,BACKDRAFT,BROKEN ARROW,GLADIATOR,HANNIBAL and others more...

I got this CD as a preview copy about a month ago and decided to not write a review of it. This and the Telarc Jerry Goldsmith album are among some of the most useless muzak CDs I've heard recently.
There's nothing to them. It's just wallpaper. Old people listen to this stuff in nursing homes. It's not good.
Find the original soundtracks of the scores to these movies. Listening to a "Concert" version of movie themes always makes my ears turn to mulch.
Just my opinion, of course...
