Ok, but not great, I even hear a bar of Wrath of Kahn in there!

The soundtrack is ok and certainly I would like to see a 'deluxe edition' come out with more of the films music as I'm sure there are some good nuggets we havenít got here in this release.
For me however I keep hearing The Wrath of Kahn! There is a small grouping of notes played in 'surprise attack' in the Wrath of Kahn played by trumpets that are echoed in the Avatar music similarly [slight variance and different use but I can here it still!].
track 1: ..in cryo... - 58sec and 2m10sec we hear the wind instruments in the background in that similar sounding note to wrath.
track 10: destruction of Hometree - at 5min
track 13: war - 8m32sec
I'm not saying itís exactly the same, just similar to the sound used in wrath of kahn and I quite liked noticing it.
Also I felt that 'Jakes first flight' in the beginning sounded awfully like Shearmur's soundtrack theme from the Count of Monte Cristo.
