Music from the Films of Kevin Costner

   Availability | Viewer Ratings | Comments | Track Listings | Notes
Buy it... if you seek a Silva Screen compilation that is a bit more unpredictable than their usual collections of film music collections.

Avoid it... if you have no interest in the selection of scores provided, and are tired of hearing Dances With Wolves and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

Hollywood Stars: Music from the Films of Kevin Costner: (Compilation) By the late 1990's, Silva Screen had hit their stride in their production of large-scale symphonic re-recordings of film music featuring The City of Prague Philharmonic. As they had done before and would do again in the future, they released several actor-specific compilations in the summer of 1998. Under the common title of "Hollywood Stars," the three concurrent releases of the series were devoted to films starring Sean Connery, Kevin Costner, and Mel Gibson. The Costner album is by far the most positively varied of the three, and will keep you on the edge of your set more than the other two. Its most interesting characteristic is its inclusion of several scores that haven't received full releases in their original form. The symphonic selections have a distinct Western/Adventure theme, though the album also features an abundance of synthetic cues as well. The album opens and closes with two very good Western themes, Wyatt Earp and Silverado, the latter of which is performed with the same vigor as the original and is always a welcome inclusion on any compilation. The suite of themes from Dances With Wolves is more extensive than the usual Dances With Wolves concert performances. At almost ten minutes, it offers a variety of music from the score, including the choral-assisted "The Buffalo Hunt," and is a refreshing variation for film score fans who have tired of hearing the score's primary two themes through the years. Maurice Jarre's No Way Out is an awkward electronic score that sounds much like Christopher Franke music in parts, varying greatly in tone from drab atmospherics to unnerving rhythmic hits. The cue from The Untouchables is a tad bit unwelcome if you already have the Sean Connery collection (and vice versa), for the same track appears on both albums.
