Independence Day Review

by Rodney Batdorf

Like the movie itself, David Arnold's soundtrack to the sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day is all surface and no depth. It blusters and flounders, trying to create suspense, terror and heroic excitement, but it merely sounds obnoxious and brassy. For fans of the film, this will undoubtedly jog some memories of big, scary spaceships but if you're listening purely on musical terms, Independence Day provides no fireworks.
