A great piece of music
By: tinkerbelle
Date: 20 Oct 2009
Arnold created a highly varied, big orchestrated Score.

He varies the rousing patriotic main theme (played in Track 1 by the trombone) masterfully, the dark 4-tone-alien-motif is heard first in Track 2.

Track 4 is a beautifully unobstrusive orchestration with harp and woodwinds.
Track 5 starts lyric, then accumulates to a thundering battle music with lots of brass and percussion, but also a very skilful use of the strings – whenever an energy beam destroys a building, a high string glissando sets in.
Track 6 peaks that – hard to listen to without the movie – wild, confused and screaming dissonant.

A soothing counterpart is track 7 – sad and melancholy notes, accompanied by a chorus, show the whole destruction.
Track 11 is a moving piece of music with the beginning of drums and the quiet first theme mounting to a march-like end.
Track 13 builds up the tension beautifully – starting with the trombone main theme repeated by strings and then developing into a wonderfully orchestrated “showdown”.

IMO the best track is track 14 – it starts with a new fanfare and all themes are presented again, with the main theme wonderfully arranged with the full orchestra – after a cello-solo and continuing reprise the music rises to an almost bombastic end with full brass, chorus, percussion.

A truly great piece of music!
