WHAT?!?! I own and adore all four of these scores, and you are a CRACKER. The only thing that seems similar to me between the voice solos is that they are both distinctly imaginative. You can only compose so much music without having SOME of it sound the same as other people's, but that doesn't make it unoriginal by any means. Shore has always had a distinct style, and he sounds like the same composer as he did in his other scores. This is just his first opportunity to compose a fantasy film and use his imagination for the first time in his career. I've found this entire score to be very different from anything i've heard from beginning to end, and it doesn't serve the creativity of the score to compare it to composers with completely different styles. major league my left butt cheek.

p.s. learn how to spell "league".
