Buy it... if you love the unashamed energy of a fully orchestral and choral swashbuckling score of exuberant performance and thematic magnificence.

Avoid it... if the repetition of countless swashbuckling cliches played in full force by a contemporary ensemble leaves you searching for your old Erich Wolfgang Korngold classics.

Gregson-<br>Williams
Gregson-
Williams
Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas: (Harry Gregson-Williams) While Walt Disney Pictures continued to revive relatively conservative stories for their animated ventures of the early 2000's, Dreamworks was overflowing with fresh ideas to offer in their feature films. Both Chicken Run and Shrek were wildly innovative story concepts for the studio, though their topic of 2003, the "Sinbad" legend, was hardly new. To keep the creative wheels turning, however, Dreamworks took pieces from several of the seven "Sinbad" tales of famed journeys and made an adaptation of their own, Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas. The summer of 2003 was extremely successful for the animation genre, though the Disney/Pixar film Finding Nemo surfed past competition at the box office, vanquishing Dreamworks' entry this time around. Whereas Finding Nemo is a more subdued, serious-minded project, the similarly oceanic Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas is a full-fledged action-adventure spectacle. The Dreamworks franchise of animated productions had featured the services of composers Harry Gregson-Williams and John Powell since their emergence as a studio competitor to be reckoned with in 1998 (with Antz). The pairing of Powell and Gregson-Williams often resulted in quirky and energized scores performed by a wide range of orchestral, electronic, and acoustic specialty instruments, developing a following of younger film score collectors for their works on album. In 2003, though, both Powell and Gregson-Williams found themselves tackling big budget pictures by themselves, and the latter was left with the task of scoring Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas. Many composers have stated through the years that swashbuckling scores for pirates on the high seas are the most enjoyable to write and record, if only because the genre allows for enormous freedom in thematic expression and instrumental ruckus. Gregson-Williams followed suit and mostly dropped his electronic and close-range acoustic instrumentation in favor of a large-scale orchestral and choral ensemble in London.
