Film scores from the 2000s - Top 10 ‘Hidden Gems’
by Steven Sharratt

Following on from my article on Top 10 ‘Hidden Gems’ from the 1990s, here is the sequel, featuring unsung heroes from the years 2000 to 2009.

The ‘noughties’ was another great decade for film music. Classics that stand out include The Dark Knight, Gladiator, Inception, the Harry Potter franchise and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I bet anyone reading this will have at least one of these soundtracks in their collection already!

Therefore, this top 10 is designed to help you discover a small fraction of ‘hidden gems’ from the 2000s. These scores aren’t necessarily the best from that decade – but they’re still great scores that have often been overlooked. Hopefully it will help inspire you to discover some great new music.
