the most problem of horner is that he uses some themes from his older work again,with different type of variation and his scores are often to long,not less than 77 minutes, but i must say better to long as to short think of pearl harbor,so you know that every theme feautered in film is feautered on cd.
the track ten is the best of filmmusik ever heard ,even it is similiar to schindlers list,but in this case this theme is brought in a new context and it has a genius mix of melancholie and epic feelings,this theme could be perfekt
for lord of the rings,when you mix it with some celtic elements.
the first track is also great, this could be also perfekt for lord of the rings,especially for the story of isildur and the last union.
i think if shores score would be not so good,i listen to enemy of the gates and think of lord of the rings story .
