I believe the second song is also from the movie, right? Ending credits track if I recall correctly..
It also reminds me of the Lord of the Rings music a bit.
My second curiousity comes from this piece which is the main theme of the Peter Jackson's King Kong movie (2005). Has anyone noticed how it is incredibly similar to SOC's main menu theme? Maybe the composer of the game was inspired by it

There's load's of good incidental music around, My current Call of Chernobyl merge has a menu track which I got from a Russian mod named Gladiator and I'm not 100% sure but I think the music originally came from the movie Gladiator, I'll have to have a look on Youtube later and see if I'm right.
The right music does a lot for a games ambience,
There's a SOC mod where you get offered a mission that requires you to travel from one end of a fan made map to the other, When you accept the mission a Doors track starts playing for the journey across the map which takes a couple of minutes, Even though it wasn't incidental music it was the first time I'd seen music used like that in a Stalker mod and I really enjoyed it as it added to the experience.
