Comments about the soundtrack for Troy (Gabriel Yared/James Horner)

Not only does it sound like Willow...

...it also sounds like Enemy at the Gates...so when I first listened to it I had to recheck the packaging to make sure I had the right CD. I am usually not critical of Horner's work, but this score relies on too much of his modern work and less on the timeframe for which this film is based. I am SICK and TIRED of hearing that same 4-note horn motif in Horner's scores... It is in all of his recent action scores, and it's driving me BATTY.

BUT, I do like this CD. As hard as it is to believe, there are some tracks actually worth listening to. "The Greek Army and its defeat" is EXCELLENT, and although I could do without the stupid song at the end, the CD does have some unique moments.

But here again, why fix something if it isn't broken? I listened to Yared's sound clips, and his score is much more unique, much more powerful and much more deserving of a commercial release than Horner's album.

Christian hit this one right on the mark...he rarely misses.
