All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
James Horner's score for James Cameron's epic romance Titanic is much like the film itself -- against all expectations, it delivers exactly what it promises. His score is grand, without falling into typical melodrama, and delicately romantic, without being sickly sentimental; it offers genuine emotion and excitement, with the haunting vocals of Norwegian singer Sissel providing a nice counterpoint to Horner's blend of strings, vocals, orchestras, and synthesizers. Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" may feel a little like an afterthought, especially after experiencing Horner's wrenching, affecting score, but its heart is in the right place. Nevertheless, it is ...

Nevertheless, it is Horner's instrumental work and its whirlwind of emotions that makes the score of Titanic a voyage worth repeating. [The soundtrack was reissued in 2012 with a remastered version of the original score, as well as a bonus disc featuring period music from I Salonisti, the folk quintet that appeared in the film.]

    100% Amazing

    This soundtrack is the best music I have ever heard. James Horner did a GREAT job on putting the music together and putting it into the movie. Some songs make you cry, other make you feels loved and romantic, then there are other still that make you feel heroic and bold. The soundtrack is something I listen to daily and I am always stunned each time I listen

    Exquisite!!

    This album tells the story of Titanic in order of occurrence. The tug on heartstring love between Rose and Jack are expressed beautifully through the score. It tells the story of true eternal love in the most elegant fashion. No other music I have ever heard compares to the way that this connects to the listeners’ heart on many levels. It touches the soul and expresses love in the most beautiful art form. It makes you think about your life and how much it can truly be touched by love. Celine Dion's graceful theme song and enchanting voice expresses the concept of love in lyrical form, giving the true love of Jack and Rose a personified voice. A score album truly without flaw, Titanic is an unsurpassed masterpiece! James Horner is a musical genius, this score has to be his greatest composition yet.

    Totally Awesome! spectacular

    JUst like the movie, this album became a huge success. It has sold slightly over 30 million copies worldwide which makes this the best selling instrumental album YET. The music is is romantic, well organized, and performed by one the best instrumentalist ever, James horner. If you like the movie titanic and you like classical music, you should definitely buy this album. No other album can compare with the love, creativity, and excellence of this album. Each musical comes from the movie just as it is organized, as a result, it tells the story of titanic by presenting a romanic musical. so pick up a copy if this type of music fits your category.

    ONE OF THE BEST SOUNDTRACKS YET

    James Horner has always seemed to shine the light on the srength of the human heart, and follow of human desire. Titanic is still one of my favorite films and it always will be, Horner did the same thing to the film score as he did to Braveheart and A Beautifil Mind. He opened a doorway into a world where dreams come true, and where fear fills the soul. I could not be more pleased with the outcome of Titanic's score. And after five or six years of Titanic being out on video and dvd, I can say that the music of Titanic will always live on in my heart, and I will never forget the characters that James Cameron created, and the music that Horner seemed to put together. It is so powerful, and full of so much beauty that it is very difficult to go a day without hearing Horner's score. Powerful; and compelling it is. I love the flutes and the violins he uses, and all the other intruments that he uses to capture Camerons vision
