Album Review

International recording artist and keyboardist Kitaro scored the music for Oliver Stone's film Heaven and Earth. This movie examines the life of a Vietnamese woman...Kitaro performs on many unusual Vietnamese instruments, ones that have a melodic Asian flavor due to the use of special Chinese instruments played by Yu Xiao Guang. This is the first time Kitaro has collaborated with Stone. He spent more than a year working on his compositions and says that the scope of the film has given him the opportunity to explore a new musical style. Kitaro feels this is his greatest endeavor to date...

Another Incredible Album

I first started listening to Kitaro after picking up a copy of Enchanted Evening and I immediately loved it. I have since picked up all of his other albums and have enjoyed each and every one and this one is no exception. The music is powerful and I can't wait to see the movie. The work that he has put into this one has made it so powerful that it seems to tell the story by itself.

A Classic Score!

Powerful, heartfelt music. No other scores sound like this!

great!!

I like the chinese instrument sound which is played by Yu Xiao Guang.
Just I'd expect from a great movies, their music is great!!
