Director Gore Verbinski's animated comedy western Rango, which stars a gun-slinging lizard voiced by Johnny Depp, featured a pairing of two musical icons from disparate backgrounds, ubiquitous/celebrated film composer Hans Zimmer and veteran Latin roots rock collective Los Lobos. The results were part Ennio Morricone and part classic norteño, resulting in one of the wildest, most consistently interesting soundtracks of 2011. Peppered throughout with dialogue from the film, Zimmer and Los Lobos successfully spin spaghetti Western clichés, swashbuckling orchestral cues, and Mexican folk music into a real gem.
FYI: the "we will go home song" is called the Song of Exile by vanora and is not sold on itunes
Five Stars...but only if you add Amergin's Invocation (second take)
I stand corrected from my earlier review... Some of the missing music that everyone is wondering about can indeed be found on Lisa Gerrard and Patrick Cassidy's' album, Immortal Memory. The third track, Amergin's Invocation, contains a large section of the music heard in the movie (but apparentally this is NOT the music from "We will go home"). I wonder as many of the other reviewers do, why is some music included on a soundtrack and other sections are not. Still this music is worth having (and Immortal Memory too....but then, thats another CD.) Take care!
one of the BEST soundtracks
The music in this film contains some of the most moving pieces that I have ever heard. Woad to Ruin is memorable, especially during the last 3 minutes or so when Hanz continues a motif, the tempo continuosly increasing over the 3 minutes. Budget Meeting and Do you think I'm a saxon are more epic pieces, that both perfectly convey (In my mind) such epic and dramatic battles in the middle of the 4th century. Another Brick in the Hadrian's wall has a great epic beginning, followed by one of the main haunting melodies of this soundtrack. And finally, All of them is a landmark in Movie scores as far as I am concerned. About 7 minutes and 9 seconds into it, Hanz brings in a beutiful Choral interpretation of one of the score's main melodies, and beutifully layers and builds it until it is a thundering climax for the last 2 minutes or so. Having listened to many movie soundtracks, and acknowleging all of the great ones out there, This soundtrack is with out a doubt my FAVORITE, and I applaud Hanz for his terrific work on it.
