Well, I must say I totally disagree with the review exposed this time...because North's music stands as one of the best scores of the '80...and it is not of its melodic treatment...it is just because of its ability to capture the exposed world in the movie...dark times, fears, no hopes...all the elements the movie could not show found their expression in the music of Alex North...I agree that Willow is a great piece of music, but Horner's approach and North's approach are completely different...The palette of musical colours and forms are different...we cannot compare Goya with Derain, Picasso with Velazquez, Rubens with Matisse...they expressed the reality using differents approaches...as Horner and Norht did...For me...two masterpieces...different...but also fascinating...
