I agree with this poster! James did a fantastic job on this score-very majestic and well done!

I used to enjoy coming here all the time, but tired of hearing over and over again the negativity of James Horner's works. Talk about being repetitive! Jerry, Elmer, even John Williams have all incorporated their previous works into their scores. That's what makes them familiar!

Let's cut the guy some slack, ok?
