Buy it... if you desire a strong companion piece to James Newton Howard's arguably more accomplished, but very similar style for Dinosaur and Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Avoid it... if you expect the ethnic highlights of the Treasure Planet score's opening and closing cues to translate into consistent strength in the work's midsection.

Treasure Planet: (James Newton Howard) The Disney enterprise blasted on with its yearly large-scale animated epic, striving to alter another concept, this time Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island," to reach for fresh new territory. The space-age adaptation of the classic tale takes a jet propelled 18th Century sailing ship on a search in space for the X that marks the spot. The story sheds many of the usual formulas that inhabit the studio's children's films, including a clear villain and any semblance of a leading duo romance. Also interestingly gone for Disney was the concept of the animated musical; it is perhaps ironic that the directors of this film, Ron Clements and John Musker, were responsible for the super-popular musical The Little Mermaid in 1989, but their efforts for Treasure Planet were awarded with a fair amount of praise (aimed mostly at the visuals). The film did not fare as well at the box office as its two comparable predecessors, Dinosaur and Atlantis: The Lost Empire, likely a result of heavyweight competition in the theatres from entries in the Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, and James Bond franchises, among others. For James Newton Howard, this film marked his return as the regular orchestral composer for Disney's larger, non-musical animated efforts, fulfilling the final contractual obligation of a three-picture deal with the studio. Both of his scores for Dinosaur and Atlantis had proven to retain a lasting popularity with enthusiasts of animated music and film scores at large. Listeners familiar with the entirety of those previous scores will recognize several similar motifs, thematic key shifts, and instrumentation in Treasure Planet. For those folks, this score functions as a strong companion piece to those works, though likely a step behind in the quality of its sum.
