This collection of soundtrack music by the German-born film composer Hans Zimmer includes his first film score, A World Apart, as well as his co-written, club-influenced soundtrack for the award-winning My Beautiful Laundrette. A subtle, expressive composer, Zimmer makes good use of brooding, layered themes in pieces like "The Fruit Machine," while his music for The Island combines folk-themed segments with dramatic orchestral flourishes.
