Title - 'Max' (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Artist - Trevor Rabin

Trevor Rabin is a South African-born musician, songwriter and film composer. As a musician, he is best known for his time as the guitarist and vocalist for British progressive rock band Yes from 1982 to 1994, when he left the band to pursue a film composer career.

And wow, did he accomplish that dream or what, because Rabin has scored over three dozen films which include: Con Air, Armageddon, Enemy of the State, Jack Frost, Deep Blue Sea, Gone in 60 Seconds, Remember the Titans, The Banger Sisters, Bad Boys 2, Exorcist: The Beginning, National Treasure, Coach Carter and even Snakes on A Plane.

Rabin was born into a family of classical musicians in Johannesburg, South Africa, where his father Godfrey was lead violinist for the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra and also a lawyer.[2] Educated at Parktown Boys' High School in Johannesburg, he took formal piano training before discovering the guitar at age 12.

In truth, he hasn't looked back once, and here on Max, well, he takes the musical ball and runs with it like never before. 'Max,' directed by Boaz Yakin and starring Thomas Haden Church, Josh Wiggins, Luke Kleintank and more, is the story of a dog that helped US Marines in Afghanistan returning to the U.S. He is subsequently adopted by his handler's family after suffering a traumatic experience.

Rabin actually reunites with director Yakin on Max (“Remember the Titans"), and have become close friends since their time spent together 15 years ago. They worked closely on this score for nearly eight weeks, Yakin often visiting Rabin’s studio to hear what the composer was creating.

'Max's Training DVD' 11. 'Max Escapes' 12. 'Let's Do This' 13. 'Mom's Law' 14. 'You're Not A Marine' 15. 'Round Two' 16. 'Epilogue' 17. 'Max's Suite'

Rabin names Bernard Herrmann as his favorite score composer.[2] He has named Arnold Schoenberg as one of his favorite classical composers, and him and other classical composers – Beethoven, Sibelius, Elgar and Tchaikovsky – as influences. In truth, a lot of those "faces" can be found here on Max, a soundtrack that perfectly encapsulates it's subject matter in a way that, perhaps, hasn't quite been done before for this genre.
