WELL, considering that both films were based on World War II, and both films had the nazis in it, it is fair to say that the scores should be similar. I think that Williams' score is very different than Horner's but the only thing that is similar is a few seconds near the end of the album. I think both scores are effective for their respective film and both are very different.
