Sorry, but I cannot agree with you. Horner used the synthesizers to have an effect of going back in time to when the Titanic was born. I think you may be to harsh. Listen to #7 again. Especially at 4 minutes,20 seconds. Can't you feel the panic in the workers trying to escape?
Oh, and if you read the history of the the passengers aboard the Titanic, you would read how a lot of the lower third class people like Jack, were from Ireland. Though he was not. I kind of think of the bagpipe solo on #1 to be ready to put back in time to the era of the Titanic. Also, in #8, the emotion is pure sadness as he captivates the seperation between two people in love, and the constant struggle to not let go at about a minute fourty. Horners music is pretty full of emotion, especially in #5 as he captures the majesty of the Titanic's size and the celebration by the onlookers and the passengers.
