James Horner has written a classic score for "Legends Of The Fall". His sweeping strings and powerful themes create the perfect emotions for each scene in the movie, and as an album , it plays almost perfectly. The highlight of the album has to be track 2, "The Ludlows". Opening with the delicate sound of Horner's piano playing, and then bursting into theme soon after. "Off To War" shows how Horner can create mysterious and enchanting pieces of music without loosing site of the theme he has just created, continuously reminding us of it with short bursts of full orchestra. Even the action cues are listenable (which is no easy feat!) and Horner resists the temptation of using heavy percusion to create mood, and instead relies solely on melody, which, in my opinion works so much better. Horner is often critised for the similarities between his scores,no such problem here, in my opinon, this is his most origial score, and close to being his best and if you are already a James Horner fan, or maybe just a score fan, this album is certainly for you! And if you are neither of these, then this is a perfect first time buy!

This has to be one of James Horner's best scores of the nineties, next to 'Titanic', 'Braveheart' and 'Apollo 13'.
The main themes are both powerful and romantic - something that James Horner is extremely good at.
The tracks 'Legends of the Fall' and 'The Ludlows' are very beautiful and give this soundtrack a brilliant opening. The two war pieces, (tracks 4 and 5) are excellent, especially 'Samuel's Death' which contains some of the best action cues I have ever heard. The following few tracks see the return of the main themes with the introduction of several sub-themes.
James Horner possesses an tremendous style which will be remembered for decades to come and I don't think it is fair that he is picked on for "self-pagiarism" and "ripping himself off", just leave him alone!

The is one of the best scores that you will ever hear. James Horner at his best.

The composer of Braveheart, Titanic and many others has composed an album full of lush strings and memerable themes this is an all time favourate soundtrack of mine and if you are a fan of Horners work a must for your collection.

"Legends of the Fall" is a family saga set in a gloriously beautiful Montana around the time of World War I, and is a genuine three-handkerchief weepie if ever there was one. It demanded, and got, the full-on James Horner treatment, in the form of a sweepingly romantic and dramatic score, delivered here with real flair and commitment by the London Symphony Orchestra.
This really is a beautifully expressive piece of work, what great film scoring is all about in terms of supporting and augmenting the action and atmosphere of a film. My personal choice as Horner's best.

We had just watched the above film and thought the music was beautiful. I found it straight away on Amazon and ordered it. The item came within a couple of days in mint condition and superb packaging.
Thank you from a very happy customer.

Bought it on the strength of hearing one track on the radio and pleased I did - it's great to work to as there's nothing that shouts out for you to sit back and listen!
