I don't think he's going to respond to you since he wrote that comment three years ago, but you're right and he's wrong.

This is a wonderful album. I'm an ENORMOUS fan of John Williams, but I have to admit that this is one of my favorite soundtracks of all time. It is a bit short, but boy does it pack a punch in those 45 minutes. It can be utterly beautiful, lonely and uplifting all at the same time. It also has some very interesting and excellent action cues (if that's what you tend to like).

I would recommend this album to soundtrack and classical music fans alike. It has a distinct concert music feel to it, and could be readily arranged to become a concert suite. As a classical musician myself and a great fan of soundtracks, I would give this album 7 out of 5 stars.

I wish Laura Karpman would have more of her compositions released on cd.
