Don't agree, this is a masterpiece   Monday, October 10, 2005 (3:07 p.m.) 

I think this score matches perfectly the film. The use of synthesizers is well done as there is a huge amount of fantasy on this film, as well as the minimalism, which fits perfectly the story about a simple farmer who follows the orders he receives from misterious voices, with no idea of what he's doing. The approach Horner made is really interesting, fits perfectly the film, and still is still an enjoyabke listening.

Only two paragraphs to review a piece of music like this is not fair, I think the reviewer may hate this score a lot, not to talk about there aren't any words for the incredible piano theme that Horner composed for the timeless passages of this film, it's outstanding.

A masterpiece, an essential work for every Horner collector.

I agree. I don't know why he's even bothering with these reviews of old scores in the first place if he doesn't understand the movies or the music. There is some sort of passive aggressive thing going on here subjecting collectors to endless old score reviews while ignoring the relatively few new scores he could easily have reviewed.

Field of Dreams is not a film about religion, it's a film about spiritualism. The score does have magic, it's just much more low-key magic than the rather bombastic Americana -- which I adore, actually -- of The Natural. It is also in keeping with the director's new age sensibility toward the material.

I'm also a little bit more concerned about the fact WHY isn't any reviews for the new soundtracks???....Don't get me wrong Christian, but I think that this site has lost A LOT since you didn't update it with fresh soundtracks reviews instead rewriting your old reviews. Since your last review there have been 4 or 5 or more notable soundtracks released, including: Flightplan, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Oliver Twist, The Little Polar Bear 2....etc...and the more soundtracks are on their way, including The Legend of Zorro, Chumscrubber, Loch Ness, and many more.
Frankly I'm very dissapointed from the way you're running this site in the past 4-5 months, and if this continiues in the near future, I'm planning to visit more offten some other soundtracks reviews sites, and I will put your site in my "RECYCLE BIN".
Please read this letter, and reconsider, what's best for this site...PROSPERITY or PERDITION
