This score is definately a 5 star score...

After listening to the Cd over and over again I tryed to find these similarities that Horner bashers have been using against the man for so long...I looked for his old work in there, but found none. There are brief moments when he almost goes into a motif from another score, but changes his theme and moves into something else. Most of these tracks are so unique and amazing, there is no way Horner could have done it in any other score... such and the Rescue and Breakout cue...

Some parts of it are reminiscent of other scores, maybe because we know Horner likes to use these instruments in his music. But when you consider that other scores, like A Beautiful Mind and Bicentennial Man contain blatent repetition of earlier themes, (A Beautful Mind contains the main theme for Bicentennial Man, and Bicentennial Man contains music from Braveheart, and so on...), the slight similarities to works such as Legends of the Fall become nothing more than coincidences. Both films are Native based, epic dramas. Naturally Horner would want to continue on with the success of Legends of the Fall with a similar look at the music.

In that respect, The Missing could be considered by some to be "Legends of the Fall Part 2", at least from a musical point of view.
