Independence Day
David Arnold


Another excellent soundtrack by David Arnold! Once again, as in Stargate, David Arnold has managed to create a dark and gloomy atmosphere throughout the soundtrack. He has perfectly captured the essence of the film through a huge orchestra and chorus. A must for soundtrack lovers. It provides really appropriate music for dark and gloomy settings, as well as epic battles.
