A very good compilation with Zimmer's early USA projects. Very good for beginner fans to have a "Zimmer-ish" idea. But for advanced fans, it's just a simple collection CD. I personally like the first volume because it contains unreleased material, rather than this. If I would have the opportunity to change the tracklisting I would add unreleased material from Rain Man and The Lion King which are very good soundtracks. Overall, think twice before buying this CD because you risk feel sorry later for the money.
I don't see any reason for this release for all these tracks have previously been released on seperate albums. If they really wanted to do something special they could have got some never-before released tracks from Hans' works during this period, especially The Lion King, not the ones that are already in print.
Oh well, they've already shown us what is meant by Official Expanded Scores of Hans Zimmer in the movie music industry with what we saw back as Gladiator Special Anniversary Edition, haven't they? *Shakes Head*
First saw this compilation in Borders® last Feb.2006.
I was compelled to buy it but it contained tracks from previous released scores, and not enough variety that challenged my collection.
Although they are good tracks from Zimmer's work from early 1990's through late 90s-- if you do not have these yet, these are good selections.
- As for commercials using Zimmer's work from other films, these music pieces are not directly in films associated with the commercials - it happens almost every trailers, commericials, promotions and teasers. Some producers may have obtained rights or already have rights to use Zimmer's and other Media Venture works.
i love hans zimmer. the last samurai is my favorite soundndtrack of all times. i know every note. listening to the "--memoirs of a geisha"-- commercials it seem to have part of hans zimmer's Samurai music in it , although he didn't do the soundtrack. i thiink someone is plaigerizing him? does anyone elso know what i'm talking about. 3/4 thru the tv commercial is absolutely the samurai theme. very upsetting. meri. c
