July/August 2019
8/15/19 Apollo 13   (James Horner)
Updated Review, With Additional Album
Buy it... on the comprehensive, 2019 Intrada album if you own only a handful of James Horner's scores and are in search of the composer at his very best, Apollo 13 exhibiting an exemplary sense of historical patriotism and tension.
Avoid it... if the understated respect that Horner conveys in his rather short score for this film doesn't appeal to your need for more lavishly melodramatic efforts from other works during that fruitful period of his career.
7/23/19 An American Tail   (James Horner)
Updated Review, With Additional Album
Buy it... if you seek the melodically rich children's score that launched James Horner's fruitful production in the genre and gained him his first widespread awards consideration.
Avoid it... if you are consistently bothered by Horner's references to Eastern European classical music and other sources of inspiration, despite the fact that they are effectively appropriate in this context.
