Excellent review as always. I think that the relative rarity of this one has given it a mystique that outstrips the actual quality of the music. It's too bad Horner couldn't come up with something along the lines of the quieter bits of Kingdom of Heaven, which does a much better job at adding a contemporary flair to medieval-sounding music.

One minor quibble: this is the second Horner review where you said prospective buyers should be weary of the CD. While it is rather wearying on the ears, I think you meant "wary," as in "beware of this CD."
