3.5 Stars for Bobby Jones 31 Jan 2006
By KZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
We all know James Horner self-plagarizes. That's a truth that not only his critics and fans admit to, but Horner himself. With Bobby Jones, Horner outdoes himself in terms of plagarizing - there are moments in the score that are literally (no, I mean it, literally) note-for-note the Freedom theme to Braveheart.

So that begs the question - is that a bad thing? Depends on how you see it. I loved the Braveheart score, but I liked this one too. Horner's plagarism is something you have to deal with when you buy one of his albums - like he said, it's his music, and if he wants to reuse themes, I guess he has the right to do so. What needs to be addressed is no longer how much he plagarizes, but if the music is any good and serves the film. This is good film music. It's occasionally moving and powerful, as well as fun and skippy (the Scottish bagpipes are back in full throttle here).

Ultimately, it's up to you and your ability to deal with Horner. This is a competent score from him that sometimes becomes a really enjoyable listen (it doesn't quite reach Braveheart territory because of a lack of extremely innovative material), but if you know the Braveheart score by heart, this one may play a bit like a flashback.

cheers

SPELLBINDING! 16 May 2004
By patrica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This music complements the motion picture like a glove. From the awkward strings in the scene in which young Bobby is just learning the game, to the stirring percussion sounds as Bobby begins to turn the tide and starts to win championships, this music cradles the movie from start to finish! The somber notes during the first St. Andrews championship where Bobby is given "a trashing" by the old golf course are absolutely perfect. This musical score mirrors the champion's life and emotional turmoil. Like the film itself, it is a masterpiece and a class act! Kudos to James Horner.

James Horner - Stroke of Sameness 11 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a big fan of James Horner's scores and to be honest I was really looking forward to hearing this score and Troy (both due out on the same day!). I bought Bobby Jones first because I haven't seen the movie and I really wanted to hear Horner's take on scoring a golf movie. Sadly I am a little dissapointed with the score, mostly because the main theme is exactly like a secondary theme from Braveheart. Almost note for note! I know Honer tends to repeat himself many times in his scores but I thought he would he able to come up with a different theme for Bobby Jones and not just a rehash of one of his most famous scores. There are some good tracks in the score but it never really takes off into some grand theme and I haven't found myself getting caught up in the music. This will be one of the Horner scores that will grow on me and I like it but was just a little dissapointed. Hopefully Troy will be better...

Great soundtrack 26 Feb 2006
By JLuvBug - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To the guy who said that James Horner plagiarizes, how can he when he is using his own music/scores from other films? I don't mind that Horner using some of the same music from his other movie scores, he is still infusing new music with old. I thought this soundtrack was great! Went well with the movie.
