Powerful Music...

This is one of the few soundtracks that I still can't get enough of. The music by Hans Zimmer is just amazing, and hits emotional strings that were touched upon in the movie. Wow, this soundtrack is too good.

Absolutely Beautiful

This is a beautiful album. Relaxing, a good combination of driving themes and soft melodies that literally can soften your soul for a moment. Zimmer is a great composer. My favorite track is "A Hard Teacher," two combined melodies that just whisk your personal troubles out of the way, and puts you in that remote village in Japan while meditating. Alot of these tracks can also inspire you to become "Asian" in work-ethic and concentrate harder. Great album that can help you concentrate and relax at the same time.

One of the best soundtracks I've ever heard.

Note that because the entire thing is instrumental, it is particularly well-suited to serve as background music for reading or studying. I can't recommend an album more highly.
