Though very African in its tone and style, this soundtrack still has a lot to offer. As one of Goldsmith's better scores, the music and evocative and powerful. The African chants that lie behind each track give the score a sense of grandeur and power.
This is an action-orientated score best used to accompany specific events in an adventure, rather than to create a mood and feeling. More suited for fantasy adventures, it is a well-written score. The songs towards the end may or may not be useful, depending on your adventure.
