13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
Music from the Motion Picture


Composer: Lorne Balfe
Label: Paramount Music
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 15 January 2016

Paramount Music release Lorne Balfe's original score for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The movie tells the gripping true story of six elite ex-military operators assigned to protect the CIA who fought back against overwhelming odds when terrorists attacked a U.S. diplomatic compound on 11 September 2012. When everything went wrong, six men had the courage to do what was right...

Lorne Balfe once again, delivers some incredibly moving themes with his latest score for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The album contains 13 tracks (52 min, 32 sec) and opens with the impressively multi-layered 'Hero'.

There are quite a few action based themes (most notably 'Engage Direct') which brought to mind Balfe's incredible score for the console game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. And there are also a number of melancholic, heartbreakingly beautiful themes.

Highlights include the aforementioned 'Hero'; 'The Last Resort'; 'Forgotten'; and '13 Hours'.

It's another impressive score from Balfe with a nice balance of action themes and beautiful quiet segments of reflection.
