Oscar-winning composer James Horner Titanic hits the waves again with the thrilling score for The Perfect Storm. An adaptation of Sebastian Junger’s bestselling book of the same name, the film explores mankind’s battle against the forces of nature. Horner's signature touches -- strong, thematically charged melodies, soaring strings, and thunderous percussion -- echo the plot's tempestuous twists and turns. Anchored by enchanting themes and Dane Clark's commanding percussion, Horner’s robust compositions evoke man’s struggle and ultimate inability to control the elements. And while it’s no "My Heart Will Go On," the final theme, "Yours Forever," cowritten and performed by John Mellencamp, is a heartfelt folk-rock ...

The Perfect Storm seals Horner’s reputation as one of the great film composers of our time. Jane Komarov
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
James Horner composes and conducts the music for Wolfgang Petersen's The Perfect Storm, another film about a star-crossed ship. Horner's sweeping, portentous score mirrors the true story of the crew of the Andrea Gail, a fishing boat caught in a deadly Northeaster in 1991. Despite somewhat overblown tendencies on some pieces, the album is a dramatic and emotional piece of film music for an equally gripping movie. Indeed, the score for The Perfect Storm may prove to be as popular as Horner's Titanic music. The album also includes John Mellencamp's theme for the film, "Yours Forever."

    The Perfect Storm. The Perfect Soundtract

    The soundtract is so cool. I love the way James Horner composes his music.
