Buy it... if you typically enjoy John Debney's rousing orchestral adventure scores, this one featuring some of the folksy spirit of Basil Poledouris' original score in the series.

Avoid it... if undeniable references to the Western works of James Horner and John Barry (among others) as well could deter you from an otherwise early glimpse of Debney's own maturing styles.

White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf: (John Debney) The White Fang films are, without a doubt, insults to the classic Jack London novel on which they are loosely based. Other than the location and some characteristics of the lead wolf, there is nothing about the 1991 and 1994 films that offered the same realistic glimpse at life in turn of the century Alaska. Instead, Hollywood dumbed down the stories and gave them politically correct themes and pleasantly sappy outcomes. The 1994 sequel, White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf, is even worse than the original, bordering on stupidity so pervasive that the scriptwriters actually lead audiences to believe that the animal can truly understand English, a cartoonish effect worthy of lesser topics. And, of course, the sequel pits a group of sympathetic Indians against a big, bad mining company for the same necessary socio-political message that Steven Seagal, of all people, was bringing to the region at the same time. In terms of music, the first film was blessed with a decent score by Western enthusiast Basil Poledouris, though the effort, despite featuring some of his trademark techniques in the genre, wasn't among his best. The title theme shared significant similarities to the concurrent James Horner work on The Rocketeer (almost to a fault) and the Free Willy-like electronic accompaniment seemed like a lost attempt to infuse some more kiddie atmosphere into the picture. Hans Zimmer wrote a handful of cues for White Fang as well, with his more blatantly synthetic constructs and own themes not sharing any continuity with Poledouris' work (and sounding remarkably out of place for the setting as well). The entirety of scoring duties on White Fang 2 would be tackled by John Debney, a composer who has made a career off of unabashedly overachieving music for such ridiculous Walt Disney profit vehicles of dubious quality through the years. Debney would, as usual, approach the project with enthusiasm and provide a rousing score perhaps not necessary for the quality of the film, though it makes for fine listening on its own.
