Format:Audio CD
Although composer James Horner may be better known for his Academy Award-winning score to James Cameron's Titanic, he has written music for other very successful films in a variety of genres, including Star Trek II, Star Trek III, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, Battle Beyond the Stars, and the Ron Howard-directed, fact-based Apollo 13.
MCA's Apollo 13: Music From the Motion Picture showcases a mix of original compositions by Horner and songs from the Apollo Program era (1960s-1972), with selected bits of dialogue from the movie (performed by Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise, Ed Harris, and other cast members) added in for good measure.
The album starts with the stirring yet somber "Main Title," featuring a trumpet solo by Tim Morrison (who also performed the trumpet solo for John Williams' "Born on the Fourth of July") that recalls both the heroism and sacrifice of the Apollo astronauts. This 2:25 cue is heard during the flashback to the Jan. 1967 Apollo One disaster which took the lives of Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chafee during a launch rehearsal.
After a small snippet of Walter Cronkite's July 1969 announcement that Neil Armstrong had stepped on the moon, there is a long section of album devoted to music from the period, including songs by James Brown ("Night Train"), The Young Rascals ("Groovin' "), Jefferson Airplane ("Somebody to Love") and Jimi Hendrix ("Purple Haze").
Horner returns after another dramatic bit of dialogue with his 10:04 cue "The Launch." This is perhaps one of the best selections in the album, as it captures the tension, excitement and awe of a Saturn V launch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music to stir the blood! 13 Feb 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD brings the music of the film to life. Also included is dialogue from the film which, to my mind, brings more drama to some epic film score. The Launch, (track 9) Darkside Of The Moon, (track 17) and Re-Entry and Splashdown (Track 22) are worthy of the five star rating alone. Other tracks include songs from the era such as Spirit In The Sky and Night Train. The real music though is that of James Horner who brought a magnificent film even more to life. Buy this CD.

A great film with a fantastic score so what happened to the soundtrack album?

Well, while I know there was some source music with the tape player on Apollo 13 in some scenes, the music did not need to be included: Spirit in the Sky, Night Train, Somebody to Love etc. These tracks do not really fit in with the rest of the score.

Then there's the dialogue from the film; if I wanted the dialogue, I'd watch the film! A soundtrack doesn't tell the story, it enhances the story so don't put the dialogue in.

Having said all that, the music written specially for the film by James Horner is superb, if it was only this music (which is what I bought the album for) I'd have given 5 stars. The trumpets and the drums in particular are superb and so haunting, almost like The Last Post, sad yet uplifting at the same time.

I know what I will be doing: copying the best bits to my ipod and forget the rest. A shame really as it could have been so good.
