The Perfect Storm, James Horner, Motion Picture Soundtrack, Sony Music, June 30, 2000, 10 tracks.
My thoughts: James Horner is, admittedly, a master at composing music. Having composed the Titanic soundtrack three years earlier, it is no surprise he would be part of this oceanic disaster movie. Similar watery themes are found again in this work. While there is obvious danger among the waves, almost every track conveys and instills a wide-eyed fascination with the sea. Horner makes you long for something, and find yourself surprised that you do.
My rating: 5 stars
