"Hi, I feel kind of dumb here, because I wrote my first review on the basis of the music in the movie, which I saw several times before the CD came out. I did not realize the the music from the movie is NOT the soundtrack, that the CD is the soundtrack. This is my revised review.I like the music and would buy it again, but I am disappointed that more cuts weren't included.The soundtrack does not have Loreena McKennitt's song, which was played during Sgt. Todd's rehumanizing, nor does it have the old rock song. It also does not have several of the cuts that refer to other Sc- Fi Movies such as ID4 and Star Wars.Track 1: New Soldiers vs Old Soldiers Track 2: The Chain Fight Track 3: Welcome to Hell Track 4: Todd is Exiled Track 5: Soldier Ships Arrive Track 6: One Against Many Track 7: The Final Battle Track 8: RedemptionSee the CD "The Book of Secrets" for Loreena McKennitt's Song "Night Ride Across the Caucasus". Her music is nothing short of phenominal.John"

"If you want the music that really made this movie then you are looking for Loreena McKennitt's 'The Book of Secrets' and you won't be disappointed. I had to buy them both before I found the music I thought was contained in the soundtrack. James Milne"
Soundtrack or Score?

"I just recently watched the movie on cable and thought it was a decent movie with a decent soundtrack. However, like the other reviews listed for this soundtrack people were either disappointed or surprised that the one song that attracked people to buy the soundtrack was not on the soundtrack.
I always thought that a "soundtrack" was a list of songs used in a movie; and the "score" was the 'music' designed to enhance the movie's action, drama, or to envoke an emotional reaction within it's audience. If we go by this definition, then this CD is the score to the movie and not a soundtrack. The score is good, however it was not I what I was expecting to hear while reviewing it's sample cuts. Though I do like the "score" (to which I still bought by the way), I still wish they included the song that peaked my interest in the first place.
For those who are wondering sung the song...it was Lorena McKennitt's 'Night Ride Across the Caucasus.' Another wonderful CD to add to your collection."
