Hans Zimmer's Oscar-nominated score for reclusive director Terrence Malick's ambitious James Jones adaptation — only the director's third film in 25 years — is one of his most subtle and sophisticated yet. Then again, it's not as if the German-born composer has ever been known as a master of bombast or overstatement — Max Steiner he is not (among other works, he penned the award-winning soundtracks for Rain Man and The Lion King). Unlike the scores for most other war movies (The Thin Red Line is set during World War II), the action in Malick's elegiac epic is driven mostly by the action itself (heated exchanges between characters, sudden eruptions of devastating violence) and not the music. The soundtrack, which consists primarily of long, string-laden pieces, also includes one of the film's mesmerizing chants, which were so popular that a separate recording, Chants From The Thin Red Line, consisting entirely of chants by the Melanesian Brotherhood and the Choir of All Saints, was released in conjunction with this recording. ~ Kathleen C.

Fantastic score! One of Zimmer's finest and among Hollywood's best
If you liked Gladiator or Batman, you'll find something more reflective in the Thin Red Line, but nonetheless epic. "Journey to the Line" and "Light" are two of Zimmer's all-time best. "God Yu Tekem Laef Blong Mi" is a wonderful native Pijin tribal piece that reminds me of Morricone’s The Mission. I also recommend "The Village", and "Stone In My Heart."
Ok to keep it short and sweet, if you love Hans Zimmers music and cant get enough, this album is perfect for you, no doubt about it. Enjoy!
Hans Zimmer did an exceptional job composing the music for this masterpiece World War II saga about the Battle of Guadalcanal. Hans Zimmer is also doing the music for the upcoming miniseries The Pacific, whih follows three U.S. Marines throughout the war.
