Gettysburg was a better soundtrack. It has been said that the music in that film did not fit the scenes properly. They got me in the mood in whatever was going on. Isnt that what good music is supposed to do? Finally, we cant blame Randy for the fake strings, although alot of the instruments were real, due to lack of funding, they couldnt afford the full orchestra.
