Comments about the soundtrack for The New World (James Horner)
An incredible and inspiring piece of work...

An incredible and inspiring piece of work...   Sunday, February 19, 2006 (8:52 p.m.) 

Everytime the same discussion...when will the Horner-haters let go ? Yes I do admit...some sections of this score sound a little like Titanic, and some others sound like Braveheart...BUT SO WHAT ????? This is one of his most incredible soundtracks up to date: listen very well, the aura around all these tracks are different than his past works and you can feel it after a few listens...again, yes the sounds are similar...but it's the James horner sound...the 4 note ascending motif, the female subdued voice, the shimmering piano notes and the ethereal vocal's him and you'll hear it in many of his works does the job.

This one is a gem...very emotional, beautiful and mysterious at the same time...great song performed by Hayley Westenra...should of been nominated at the Oscars.

I really feel we are about to hear Horner's best stuff in the near future. Thanks Mr. Horner for another great score (****).
