main theme is NOT by Goldsmith   Wednesday, June 15, 2005 (5:14 a.m.) 

It's a traditional tune.

And album is overall better than EDGE (minus the theme). I like the percusion and rythms here, and that long last cue.

About MEDECINE MAN, I really cant see the connection.

Great point -- but his adaptation is great, but I mean...why not just write a new one? His willingness to sacrifice his creativity in exchange for other works was always baffling to me. I see a lot of this in his Star Trek scores, more so the later ones -- the reintroduction of the Klingon theme, for example, was really nice, but did we really need that? Williams' connections, musically, have always been very clear, but I've found Goldsmith's to be quite clumsy at times.

Goldsmith did a winner here, but it's true the theme wasn't his.

Goldsmith did what the director told him to - see the Film Music Masters DVD   Wednesday, December 28, 2005 (12:19 p.m.) 

This score is featured in the DVD documentary about Goldsmith - the theme is not by him, the director asked him to use it.

Good score, I'm glad I was introduced to it by the DVD.
