    This is the album that got me hooked on film scores in the first place. It contains one of Zimmer's biggest sounding themes to date (as heard in 'The Battle' and 'The Barbarian Horde') and was also one of the first scores to utilize the old-world, quazi-ethnic vocal style of Lisa Gerrard ('Now We Are Free' being the best example). Unfortunately, this style of vocals, which was something of a novelty at the time this score was produced, has been done to death in the years since.

    'Gladiator' is an important score, despite receiving a 3-star average among film score reviewers and critics. It marked a turning point in Zimmer's scoring style that would influence everything he has done since, as well as influencing a new crop of composers (compare this with Steve Jablonksky's score for 'The Island' or Klaus Badelt's score for 'Pirates of the Caribbean').

    'Gladiator' marks the pinnacle of a style of film scoring for Zimmer that began with 'Crimson Tide', 'The Peacemaker' and 'The Rock'. But don't forget Lisa Gerrard's or Klaus Badelt's contributions to this score. Both are responsible for the equally memorable 'Earth', 'Elysium' and 'Patricide' themes, not to mention Gerrard's moving vocal work.

    If you're after an introduction to the world of film music, then this is an excellent starting point - big themes that have an instant catchyness about them, but infused with enough depth to keep you coming back for repeat listens.

      I did enjoy this soundtrack when it first came out, but the cd master, at least, is terribly compressed and clips often.

        Quite possibly the most fun you can have with classical type music. Zimmer's best work. I've listened to this hundreds, possibly thousands of times. My one and only disappointment it was never released in 24/96 format. Deserves far treatment, but like the digital birds and rose petals in the movie perhaps no additional resolution can be retrieved from the master itself. None the less take it to the gym while you're pumping iron. You might make a bunch of new friends.

          Coincidentally...this is the soundtrack that also got me interested in film scores.

          "Now We Are Free" just spoke to me, it was so deep and mesmerizing. Hans Zimmer is one of my favorite composers and this is a magnificent piece of work.
