One of the Greatest Soundtracks of the Century   Wednesday, January 16, 2002 (6:01 p.m.) 

This underscore is one of the greatest written in the first century of film. James Horner's work is always to be admired -- its sheer intensity and beauty is what makes the movies he scores that much powerful -- but this really takes the cake. I am 16 years old, and have been studying music for my entire life. As a young, aspiring film composer, I could pinpoint the source of my aspiration to Horner's entire body of work; but if I had to choose one soundtrack, this would be it. The combination of voice parts, bold percussion, and timid but sweet strings makes the entire score a masterpiece of commerical composition. My favorite tracks are the Main Theme, and End Credits.

Hello my friend.
Like you I am a film music fan, but take care of your ears...Listening too much to film music could affect your music "culture"... The Apollo 13 film is scored by an excellent "film music composer" (James Horner) but not by a "composer". The difference might be very subtuble but the difference exists... Just listen to Mozart's Requiem (for Willow) or to Copland's Appalachian Spring (for your best film score of the century Apollo 13)

I don't want to be despicable or a music teacher but if you want so much to be a film music composer, keep watching movies and loving horner but listen to other music...

Your film music friend,
John Steven
