I havent listened to ABM yet , but i think heres the right place to critisize the problem i have with horner.
i got many soundtracks composed by horner , from StarTrek II over Willow to Enemy at the Gates.
Yesterday I listened to many of them , and its unbelievable : in the 1989 Willow Score its one Theme which is identically used in Enemy at the Gates.Then I listen to enemy at the gates.Here he uses a theme which sounds a bit similar to Schindlers List.but its also a theme he uses in Apollo13.
And this way it goes on , he composes one main theme , and the rest he fills with variations of older themes or underthemes he once composed.
If you really want to enjoy a horner soundtrack you cant listen to some of them in a short period of time.Otherwise youŽll really be bothered of this endless repeations.
dont get me wrong,im a big horner fan , and i think heŽs one of the greatest movie composers ever , but i hope ill hear a soundtrack of him where he doesnt uses any of his older themes.
