Cheers to Horner

by gobeach12@hotmail.com on 8/17/2002

The opening title is one of the most moving compositions James Horner has ever written. This was by far one of his few unique pieces, intelligently written with an unaccompanied solo trumpet to open. Trumpeter Tim Morrison displayed amazing expression when he captured the emotions the world felt during those days of uncertainty in his solo. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who was touched by this heart-wrenching real life drama. Read More

Too much dialog, not enough musical score

by Shane on 4/15/2004

I was looking forward to hearing the inspirational soundtrack from a very moving film. While some of my favorite music from the movie is on the CD, many musical pieces are interrupted by clips of dialog from the movie. Now I love the movie, but if I wanted to hear the dialog again, I'd buy the DVD not the soundtrack. What's even more annoying is that the dialog isn't mixed in with the music like some sort of montage or remix. Instead, the music usually stops in the parts with the dialog. What were they thinking when they put this CD together? By the time you exclude the old songs on the album and the areas with the dialog, there isn't much movie soundtrack left! Read More

Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Annie Lennox (vocals), Tim Morrison (trumpet).
Producers: Nick Lowe (track 13).
Original score written and produced by James Horner.
Producers include: Nick Lowe.
Original score written by James Horner.
The 24-karat edition of the soundtrack to APOLLO 13 is mixed in Dolby Surround Sound.
The soundtrack to director Ron Howard's 1995 blockbuster Apollo 13 effectively blends dialogue, actual audio clips from newscasts, classic songs, and portions of conductor James Horner's original score, creating a worthy aural companion. Included are songs from the period of the titular spacecraft's peril-fraught mission, such as the Young Rascals' "Groovin'," Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody to Love," the Who's "I Can See for Miles," and a classy version of the oft-covered "Blue Moon" by the Mavericks (produced by Nick Lowe). The orchestrated score manages to capture the drama of the events in a manner that ranges from quietly stirring to sweepingly epic, with Eurythmic Annie Lennox adding her distinctive, ethereal vocal accompaniment to several of the cuts. ~ Tom Demalon
