HASH(0x94f74054) out of 5 stars Best Music from the Film is Missing in Action 30 Jan. 2006
By tacks31 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The use of Wagner's Vorspiel from the opera Das Rheingold, along Mozart's famous Piano Concerto #23, are stunning and essential elements to this remarkable film. So why then are we left with a CD having a truncated soundtrack, consisting only of a James Horner score that borrows heavily from Titanic? My recommendation is to save your pennies for the DVD. The opening film sequence with Wagner's Prelude to his Der Ring des Nibelungen opera cycle is pure cinematic brilliance, as are the emotional scenes accompanied by one of Mozart's most haunting Piano Concertos. Unfortunately this CD includes none of that. It brings one to wonder about the marketing department at New Line Records. What "genius" there concocted this blunder?

HASH(0x943ec30c) out of 5 stars Fascinating curiosity 5 Jun. 2006
By James Luckard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lots of people have justly complained that the Wagner and Mozart pieces that dominate the film aren't on this CD. They're the most memorable music in the film, and I can only imagine how annoyed people must have been if they didn't know these were existing classical pieces. Still, the album is filled with 80 mins of Horner's original score, so it's not like the producers left blank space on the CD.

What is odd, however, is that much of what's here is material that was rejected by Malick. Track titles refer to scenes that have no music or classical music in the film. Out of 80 minutes, I'd say less than a third of it is in the finished film, if that. I wouldn't be shocked to learn less than 10 minutes made it into the movie.

What's even more infuriating is that there's a gorgeous piano theme for Rolfe and Pocahontas as they fall in love, spare and lovely, that recalls the Rose piano theme in Titanic. It plays most prominently over the marriage of Rolfe and Pocahontas. That gorgeous cue is not here, indeed the theme is not on the album at all, with the exception of about thirty seconds on track 9.

That music was all I wanted on an album, and instead we get over an hour of rehashed Braveheart-meets-Titanic. It's all pleasant, but highly conventional and it's not hard to understand whay Malick dropped it.

It's just a shame that even the tiny amount of Horner's music that remains in the film is not all available on this strange CD that seems destined to please nobody.

HASH(0x942a6ef4) out of 5 stars Movie was good, but a big disappointment this CD is! 1 Feb. 2006
By C. Phan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The music by James Horner can be very touching and fit well with the theme of the movie. However, many find some repetitions from other movie soundtracks embedded into the soundtrack for The New World. Some of the music are similar to that of "Braveheart" or "Titanic". The opening scene of the movie was a good one and requires a good soundtrack to go with it. The theme was played in the beginning, middle, and the end of the movie. This beautiful theme you will not find in this album! You will have to find "Richard Wagner - Vorspiel" in order to listen to it. Do not be mistaken for "Track 01 - The New World" to be that theme you wanted because it is some odd soundtrack. Overall, if it is James Horner's music you want from the movie, this soundtrack is for you.

Many people buy this soundtrack for that soft orchestrated theme from the movie, but if you would like Richard Wagner's Vorspiel, here is the link to get it from:

Hope this helps.

HASH(0x94421bf4) out of 5 stars the New World 26 Jan. 2006
By Raspberry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really enjoyed "The New World" and I was very excited to buy the soundtrack. James Horner's music is very good. In some places, it reminds me a lot of the "Titanic" soundtrack, especially when you hear the woman's voice in the background, but since I love the "Titanic" soundtrack, this is a good thing. However, as another reviewer pointed out, the soundtrack is missing some music. According to what I've read, I think that the opening music as they sail into Virginia is "Vorspiel" from Wagner's "Das Rheingold" and the piano music played throughout the movie is Mozart's 23rd concerto. I was able to find both of these on itunes, and they sounded right. The soundtrack would have been more complete with these songs, but it is still very good.
