Great music wrecked!
on 2 February 2011
When I buy a soundtrack, I buy it to listen to a film's music free from other distractions. This album has some lovely music.
WHY WHY WHY wreck it by mixing in random soundbites from the film? If I want to be reminded of how the music relates to the film I would dig out the DVD (why no Blu-ray yet?) and watch it. I assume this act of acoustic vandalism is catering to some modern fashionable idea of what constitutes a great soundtrack album. The same act of vandalism was perpetrated on another Horner great - Apollo 13. WHY?
If studios must continue with such stupidity, why don't they label such abominations as 'Movie extracts without the picture'????
If you like to escape into the music, steer a course clear of this rubbish.
Note: The original Titanic soundtrack album has not been similarly vandalised and is highly recommended.
