I agree. However, The Missing has a different flavor than Legends. Legends of the Fall beautifully captures the grandeur and magnificence of the upper American West (Montana, Wyoming) and its beautiful mountain ranges. I think that The Missing represents the raw, barren wilderness of the lower West (Utah, Arizona, New Mexico) with it's slightly darker, laid back themes, the abundance of Native American instruments, and most of all the Indian chants. The emotion of the music is very similar to Legends though. I definitely agree with the 5 star rating. I've been looking for this caliber score from Horner for awhile. Whenever Ron Howard and James Horner get together, good things happen!
