AllMusic Review by

Regardless of the moral imperatives etched upon the stone tablets Moses brought down from Mount Sinai, right-thinking soundtrack enthusiasts have long followed one primary directive: thou shalt not listen to Randy Edelman. The composer's score for the 2006 television remake of The Ten Commandments is his usual slick, soulless fare. Its anthemic synthesizer melodies and pounding rhythms contrast sharply with the project's Old Testament setting, although it's entirely possible this is precisely the kind of music Rameses programmed into his iPod. Edelman does capture the kind of grandiose sweep one expects from Biblical epics, but the relentless bombast is as exhausting as a browbeating from a Sunday School teacher.
