Comments about the soundtrack for The Perfect Storm (James Horner)

Really great themes, a good score

The usual Horner traits are evident in this score. I really love this score, it has so many really good themes and each has its own distinct identity. Horner does well to interwine all the themes. Most of Horners trademarks show up. Notable tracks are Small Victories and Let's Go Boys, although I think this is one of the scores where you can really listen from start to finish, it has great continuity and there is never a need to skip a track, although most can skip the Mellencamp song at the end. Stylistically, as is usual for a Horner score many will be able to pick bits and pieces from other Horner scores such as Willow, Braveheart, Titanic and even recent stuff like Bicentinnial Man, as well as Aaron Copelands Appalachian Spring, but its the way that Horner plays it that makes it so enjoyable. ****1/2 a must have. Admittedly it is a bit repetitive, but highly recommended nonetheless.
