The James Horner
J to the L
A nice collection of the man’s work. Too bad he hit his prime ten years ago. James Horner has not produced an original piece of music for quite some time now. It’s sad really but I guess at some point the well has to run dry. Sure Apollo 13 is great (A_Noying) but not that great, he’s got better. Although he does like to rip himself off from time to time. There are countless example of this, Bicentenial Man vs. A Beautiful Mind. These two scores are at times almost identical, maybe it’s just me but come on! Ok I know what your thinking, but listen to other examples…Star Trek 2 vs. The Rocketeer, very, very similar themes. But Mr. Horner is not all bad, too bad some of his really nice work is missing form this album, Glory (1989), Casper (1995), Field of Dreams (1989), *batteries not included (1987), An American Tail (1986), or maybe something rare like Captain EO (1986). I you really like this music then buy the original albums, don’t cheat yourself.
