Mixed bag....

Klaus Badelt is a brilliant composer, so I've come to expect a lot from his scores. They're normally wonderful standalone works that are extremely listenable. This one... not so much. The music is decent, and I'm sure it works well with the movie, but it's lacking a little bit of punch for me. Start with Track 15 to get the best first, and go from there.

Not only is the film well done and absolutely the best movie I've seen in a theater in at least a year, the music fits it and adds to it. The opposite of a top-40 collage of pop and rock nostalgia which is standard for Vietnam era movies.
