Well, It seems like the director used cues from 'Somewhere in Time', 'Out of Africa' and other Barry-Scores as temp-tracks in pre-production and Poledouris followed his wishes to accompany the film with exactly this type of music. Or the Music just sounds like Barry, because the sound of the veteran was so popular during the 80s.
But nethertheless (or just because of) this similarity this is an excellent score that belongs in every collection of any serious fan of either composer (or both)
