A tedious, missed opportunity.

"Under the guidance of Hans Zimmer, John Powell created a melodramatic, sleek and thematic score for the movie Face/Off. Unfortunately for fans of the music, it's not presented very well on this CD. Mosty, it's just noise. Hardly any of it is exciting and all the best cues from the film are absent. The inclusion of a clip from 'Messiah' in the first track is truly awesome. And, few seconds of awful noise aside, Track 1-Face On(?) is the only track that's decent all the way thru.Some of the track titles are stupidly named and give no clue as to what part of the film they occur in. Even tho most tracks are a badly assembled mixture of random parts of the movie. I mean the music that booms during the Hummer/Airplane and speedboat chase is called Furniture on this CD? What's THAT supposed to mean? Most Media Ventures scores released onto CD are this way. If the Face/Off soundtrack gave all the music from the movie (about 80 minutes say) in chronological order then it would have been a big hit. But it's not. It's arranged in randomly assorted suites with silly track names with the great music replaced by noise and sound effects."

"I had never heard of John Powell until FACE/OFF. His magical symphonies bring joy to my living room from the gentle opening credits to the main theme of Castor Troy. I could listen to the last track for hours. Truly a masterpiece of modern music. One to sit nicely beside a Hans Zimmer classic."
Best action/adventure music ever made

"After seeing the movie (face/off) I bought the soundtrack and got used to hearing the music. Once I was familiar with it, I watched the movie again and appreciated it more. I have listened to a lot of soundtrack music before and this is by far the best action/adventure music ever made. The music is heart-pounding and pulse-stopping. I reccomend track 3, 6, and 7 for true action music."
