I wouldn't have had a reason to come in if you hadn't mentioned THE LAND BEFORE TIME and its superiority to HOME ALONE. I have bought this score, TLBT, after having read favorable reviews plus it was an over-stock item in a nearby shop sold for laughable price so I bought it and after having listened to it I was somewhat disappointed. So much praise for what has nothing to impress me in. I don't bash the score BECAUSE I can see many like it so there must be something about it. I just find it not so interesting to me. I just want to say that this is one of the reasons I don't listen to James Horner much outside of LOTF and BRAVEHEART that I can't seem to get enough of (esp. LOTF). But it's okay. The other reason may seem stupid, and as it were it likely is stupid of me, but stealing one of major Schindler's List (the best music I've heard regardless of genre) motifs only to give him such undignified role in Enemy at the Gates has put an unbearable fence between me and James' scores and to me it seems like revenge by Horner rather than courteous citation. Punish me for this if you wish, but please keep in mind that this is not my major problem with Horner's scores.

List of JH's scores I own and how I value them:
Jumanji **
The Land Before Time **
The Mask of Zorro ***
Titanic I & II **** & ***
Braveheart I & II **** & **
Devil's Own **
Bicentennial Man ***
Aliens (original & expanded) *** (both)
Legends of the Fall *****
Beautiful Mind **
