Although many of the songs are variations on the same piece, for only $10.89 you can't really go wrong. Hero is one of my favourite movies, due especially to it's style and aesthetic. The music is subtle but powerful, and contributes so much feeling and emotion to this stirring movie. However, this isn't simply the score of Hero; this is a musical animal in and of itself. I find the songs to be incredibly moving, the instruments and style to be both familiar and unique. The music sometimes seem to meld Eastern and Western styles of classical music, into timeless works of art. If you're reading this, then you've undoubtedly already seen the movie, and I can tell you that these songs will certainly remind you of the emotions you felt while watching it. Fantastic!
