Armageddon
Trevor Rabin

Review

This big, blockbuster of a movie comes with a score to match. Hugely patriotic and enough to get even the most jaded of roleplayers going. In fact one of the players mentioned it while we were watching the movie: "Why don't we get music like this in our roleplaying adventures?"

Because of the liberal use of guitar, I consider this to be better suited for science fiction campaigns. The track lengths vary from short to long so you'll find some useful for specific descriptions while others useful for background music in general. This is a huge score better suited to grander and more melodramatic adventures. Lots of fun.
