Default TOMB RAIDER [2001] Soundtrack

I know that most people hate Graeme Revell soundtrack for TOMB RAIDER 1 MOVIE

But did anyone here really took time to listen to the whole score?
I mean, like Soundtrack, not just fragments that were used in-movie.

It's amazing, it's haunting, it's so classic Lara, and heavily borrows from Tomb Raider 4-5 from PSX, and has some Soul Reaver and Prince Of Persia flair to it.

The Opening theme brings tears to my eyes, it's a wonderful, and mystical mix of industrial, and classic Tomb Raider sounds.

I've recently stumbled on it, by a coincidence on Youtube.
And i was just... WOW!

I never understood the hate for the first movie.
The second one uses Classic TR theme, sure, it's more orchestrated, but the first one is magic enchanted, it's like a drop of time, trapped in a memory glass.

One of my favorites right now.

American Beauty
Lemony Snicket
and Tomb Raider

Amazing combo.

What are Your thoughts people?

Also there's a track called 'Lara Croft at home' is surpisingly dark, yet I love it.

Then there's the 'Home Invasion'. I don't think it's anything special, but there is a TRLE level, a home level to be exact, which features this track. It's so much fun to listen to it, while shooting down the mercs!

Journey to Cambodia. It's so lovely, I can't get enough out of it.
Finally the Sibera track... when I hear it, I always imagine Lara traveling in the mountains with a snowmobile or something...

Long story short, I've listened to both movies' scores way too much times.

Oh and there's this fragment somewhere in the middle of soundtrack, that sounds similiar to "Beauty Unfurled" from TR 2 game, when Lara reaches the Great Wall segment with open space, and pool.

I also think it's not a bad produced Score considering the ridiculous time the composer was supposed to have to create the whole music aka one week.

Have you read this interview ?

When i first watched the movie back in 2001 and being a HUGE fan of Nathan's music in the game I was bitterly disappointed... however, 18 years later I have come to really appreciate the score and can't believe what Graeme achieved in such a short period of time.

The score is haunting in places and I love the voices he used and how he was able to produce something modern (for the time) while using sounds familiar to certain locations in the film.

I personally love the track "Journey to Cambodia".

Didn't Graeme literally have like 2-3 weeks to compose the movie?
