I donít care what somebody says about Horner, that he is repetiting his earlier themes in his newest soundtracks too often. And I think that this is realy a remarkable album, and about that is talking the fact that this collection is on rang 4 of so far 48 Hornerís scores, that I have collected.
I like the tension in this album, presented in the 2-nd, 4-th, 6-th, 9-th, and 10-th track.
I like the woodwinds, chants and indian voices, especially on 1-st, 4-th, 7-th, and 9-th track.
I like the ghostly passages, when you think that behind you is standing somebody with the axe, presented mostly in 2-nd, 4-th, 6-th, 9-th, and the first part of 15-th track.
I like the use of the beautiful shakuhachi instrument, especially when Horner uses it to represent the howling of the wolf in the 10-th track.
And yes, I also like the softer parts, full with romance and orchestral outbursts, like those in the 3-rd, 7-th, 12-th, and 15-th track.
But I mostly like this album becouse of itís Indian flavour.
And I also think that this is Horner best album since 1997-th Titanic, and everyone should have it in their collection.:)
