This is a beautiful collection on Hans Zimmers finest compositions, from Pirates of the Caribbean to Inception!
The pieces do not sound the same as the original ones from the movies because they are performed by guest players e.g. Leona Lewis sings in the Gladiator piece ‘Now We Are Free’.
This album sounds beautiful on vinyl, very atmospheric!
