This is not a very good score. I particulary liked Tanja Tzarovska's vocal perfomances, but what really annoyed me was the use of the four notes motif that Horner has already used in several of his scores. In Troy, that motif becomes to repetitive, and it is present in most of the tracks. The theme for Achilles isn't exactly what I was hoping. And the love theme for Briseis and Achilles isn't very original. I have the impression that I have already heard this theme somewhere. The last song is not a song that you could remember, or that you would listen to it too much. Tanja Tzarovska should have performed it.
