The score to James Cameron's Aliens is incredible, it sets a perfectly creepy and tense atmosphere in your room,boat,office,car or wherever you listen! Although, there are some tracks that are just intentionally atmospheric and quiet. Track 8 is the amazing sweat-inducing, heart pounding piece that is used in many trailers, although sometimes (in these trailers), it has been cheaply reworked. This is the only soundtrack I own by James Horner so I am not able to comment or compare it to his others. It is distinctly different but just as profound as Alien 3.
