All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
James Horner brought epic romance and Enya to his Titanic score.

He prefers large gestures, and that's what his sweeping, melodramatic score for The Mask of Zorro is all about. It's not something that fans of such sophisticated film composers like Bernard Herrmann will like, but it is exciting populist music that matches the spirit of the adventure movie. The album contains one vocal track -- the love theme "I Want to ...

    Make way for the ' Z ' !

    Taking you back into the time of " El Zorro", this soundtrack brings to life all the adventure and romance of the movie. The themes of the movie are found hidden in unexpected tracks, and you will find yourself picturing all of the action that Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones brought to life on the screen. Marc Antony's " I want to spend my lifetime loving you" brings a lovely final touch to the score.
