Customer Reviews

Top notch!

Usually I pay more attention to the visual aspects of a film, but this soundtrack seemed to capture me like no other. Highly recommend the whole album (getting one or two tracks will leave you wanting more) and pay particular attention to the tracks "Taken", which includes the scenes of travel to the village, and "A Way of Life", which starts as a calm, relaxing piece, later including the scene with the wooden sword fight (where the main character is defeated but refuses to give). Altogether an amazing work and well worth the download.

Connect with your inner-self

When I first watched this movie, as recommended to me by my now deceased Uncle, I was taken away - awe filled my mind, heart and soul as this movie connected with me on a level that no movie had done before, or even reached. This album, is exactly that escape to this level anywhere, anytime. I listen to this wonderfully composed soundtrack religiously as it holds so much emotion, feeling, and fits into any situation of life. Stressed days do come and go and this is KEY to bypass the regular day's strain. If you are like me, then that life doesn't affect you, instead, inside of you is a shrine of your own demise - and is shared with your chosen partner. This equals to a complete life circle. Please, if you are unsure about downloading soundtracks, this is definately one to make the exception as your music life isn't complete without it. Thank you.


This music connects with anyone, it de-stresses and makes you feel good, if you havent seen the film dont worry this is still a great soundtrack but you are missing out on a GREAT film. Its so nice just to sit and listen to this music or have it playing in the background whilst working or being on the compter. This realy is a must have for anyone.
