Eric Serra's score to Luc Besson's visionary yet incomprehensible sci-fi thriller The Fifth Element is a roller coaster of emotions, ranging from triumphant anthems to haunting mood pieces. Serra's score is diverse and accomplished, and it is just as effective outside of the film as it is within it.

This album is very good. It contains various styles of music, sometimes two or three types mixed together, that make up a very entertaining album. The only disadvantage is that this album doesn't contain the Arabic song from the movie's chase scene, but other than that, it's worth the money.

The music on this CD is not like other music- it is strange and eclectic- in a very positive way! I think anyone who likes this movie will love and want the soundtrack.

high voltage fun!a jaw dropping, mind blowing, visually stunning pop epic! Luc Besson's film is a smash hit.
