• Now Playing: The Pit of Carcoon (Return of the Jedi, on Film Music Radio)  

This is the album that killed filmscores for me for about five years. It's sad, since when James Horner is actually writing new music, few can compare. But this prime example in unoriginality and repetition finally wore me out. To be sure, I still bought the occasional token of a score every once in a while: the occasional Williams/Spielberg collaberation, or "Fellowship of the Ring," but ultimately this was about the end.

If you're new to film music, enjoy, I guess. It's not a horrible album.

There are just so many out there that are better...

Consider this Tim, there are only so many notes in a scale. There are many songs, millions. Take a chromatic scale and change it's rhythem, and you have new music. Music is meant to be repeated, like in Bethoveen's 7th symphony or even in Snoop Dog's rap.
