A sweeping epic adventure inspired by the Pocachontas myth,
The New World details the first encounter between European
and Native American cultures in 1607...
Horner has long been one of my favourite film composers. While
a lot of his scores sound very similar, there is something
moving about his music that I can't help but be hooked by.
As a rule Horner's music is quite depressing. Not that that's
an insult. I find his music to be amongst some of the more
inspirational of all the composers. I'll often sit and listen
to one of his scores while writing.
music for The New World contains elements that have
been "borrowed" from some of Horner's earlier work
- including Star Trek: II - The Wrath of Kahn, Bicentennial
Man, Casper, and, to a lesser degree, Jumanji.
But that's not to say that there isn't a whole heap of new
main theme to this movie is beautifully scored. While it's
not particularly memorable - like some of his other title
tracks (I'm thinking of Coccoon, Apollo 13 and The
Land Before Time) - it still has a charm all of it's own.
only really annoying element to this soundtrack is the additional
sounds that overlap the orchestral score. Sadly,
as atmospheric as it may be, the dawn chorus is a little annoying.
If this was originally scored by Horner, then fine, but I
doubt it. People buy soundtracks to listen to an uninterrupted
classical scores - unfortunately on a few tracks this is not
possible because of the warbling of birds.
The New World is not one of Horner's best soundtracks,
it's still a fantastic album, and well worth adding to your
