I do love horner scores in general. Not all of his scores of course but some of his scores like glory - titanic - braveheart - rank among the best out there. they have an epic range if you will, a grandeur that can be called 'typical horner'. But on the other hand horner suffers from his own 'trademarks'. I don't have to point out the 4-note danger motif ( When will it stop!!!! ) But it's even more frustrating to hear that horner is not just ripping himself big time, so does he prokofiev! The 4-note motif is just a variaton on the highy recommanded prokofiev score ' alexander nevsky ' Horner used the centrepiece from nevsky 'The battle on the ice' for this entire score! very un-original! The wailing, chanting-stuff is lisa gerrard all over. The only moment the music had his effect ( as wel on cd as in the film )is the percussion cue in a dueling -scene and of course the pompous fafare for troy. I think Horner should seriously consider if he can go on like this. In horner's case it was a curse to be discovered at such a young age... I hope he can change directions, other wise we will have to turn to his older classics and the really charming the spitfire grill
