Buy it... if you are either a Bryan Adams fangirl or a Hans Zimmer fanboy, because there's really nothing on this album to offer anyone else.

Avoid it... if you don't think that Zimmer's usual lathering of simplistic orchestral melodrama, mixed so heavily that it really sounds no different from his synthetics, is appropriate for the Western genre.

Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron: (Hans Zimmer/Bryan Adams) One of the more anonymous animation films of the 2000's is Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, a generic horse-related tale that relates well to young girls but offers little of intellectual interest to adults. Other than strong animated visuals, the film's only redeeming aspect resides in the fact that animals in this story cannot speak for themselves. With minimal dialogue from only three human characters, the Wild West tale relies more on its soundtrack than many of its contemporary counterparts. Some consider Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron to be a musical, which isn't entirely accurate since the characters in the film aren't actually shown singing. But the most memorable aspect of the film for most viewers will be the perpetual use of Bryan Adams' voice to narrate the film through his songs. The production turned out to be a vehicle for the artist, whose career had lost some its steam by 2002. Marking his regular return to the genre of animated filmmaking, Hans Zimmer co-wrote some of the songs and provided most of the score material (along with some of the usual Media Ventures help) in an attempt to recapture the popularity and success of his premiere such effort, The Lion King. In the series of popular merging of pop culture music artists and major animated films, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron follows the same thought process as The Lion King (Elton John) and Tarzan (Phil Collins), for which the pop artist combines efforts with the traditional film composer to write the songs for the musical. Zimmer had produced work for both pop music animated films and more orchestrally-inclined endeavors, with The Prince of Egypt serving as a enduringly popular example of the latter. If the balance between story and music is well enough maintained, then Zimmer can flourish in both settings, whether or not a pop artist is involved in the project.

The insert includes lyrics for all of the songs, which allows you to realize just how simplistic they are. Extensive credits are also provided, along with a solemn picture of a confused-looking "BA." No extra information about the film or score is provided.
