Gee, I use to like Horner music alot, but after saving buying the soundtrack, I have to say I am very disappoting.

Firstly, he end up using almost the same material for "Braveheart" (alot of them) and "Titanic" (mainly in the 2nd track and 3rd track) over agagin.

Secondly, he borrow the theme from "Schindler's List" by John William, perhaps a tribute to the famous "Star Wars" composer???

Thirdly, the ring ring sound in the track "The hunter becomes the hunted" annoy me so much, it souns too much like my phone sounds!!!

What happen to Horner, can't he start writing some new material, perhaps he listern to his own music too much (Han Zimmer is start getting in to the habbit to I think). Maurice Jarre (Composer for Lawrence of Arabia and other famous movie" use to say going back and listern your own composition is a dangeroes thing for a composer, cause u always some how end up using the same material!!!

Finally I would like to ask, "Can we ever hear the music of the "Glory" again from Mr Horner?
