Product Description

Amazon.ca

Fans of the Titanic soundtrack will undoubtedly appreciate this sequel, a collection of original music and background tunes not found on the first disc. They won't be disappointed. The newly composed "Titanic Suite" and "Epilogue: The Deep and Timeless Sea" are patchwork quilts of James Horner's most moving themes from the movie. Despite a few awkward transitions in "Suite" (where melodies move from somber to uplifting), the compositions--played by the London Symphony Orchestra and the Choirsters of King's College, Cambridge--work well. There's also a lot of diversity here, such as Gaelic Storm's lively "An Irish Party in Third Class" and chamber group I Salonisti's "Alexander's Ragtime Band" and "Nearer My God to Thee." The misses are few: the breathy Maire Brennan's "Come Josephine, in My Flying Machine" is lethargic, and the movie dialogue peppering several songs (including Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On") is more distracting than effective. --Jason Verlinde

I know that the following comment I use to start off my review regarding BACK TO TITANIC will sound confusing and pointless at first, but please bear with me... there's a reason why I mention it.
I remember once in 1989 or so flipping through an issue of ROLLING STONE magazine out of sheer boredom, and happened across a review of the Guns n' Roses recording "G N' R Lies" which was released at the height of that band's mania, and the opening lines of it stated the following: "Given that Guns N' Roses could probably release an album of Baptist hymns at this point and go platinum, it would be all too easy to dismiss 'G n' R Lies' as a sneaky attempt by the band to throw together some outtakes and cash in on the busy holiday buying season. After all, half of 'Lies' was released in 1986 (as the EP 'Live Like a Suicide'), and one of its four new studio tracks is simply an acoustic version of 'You're Crazy,' from 'Appetite for Destruction'. The arithmetic is simple: hungry fans plus ***any*** new product plus hordes of holiday shoppers equals one profitable little stocking stuffer. The good news is that 'Lies' is a lot more interesting than that."
That's the sort of comment that could very easily be made about BACK TO TITANIC, an album that I was heavily suspicious of upon its issuing. The movie had just been released on home video in a frenzy of highly-deserved popularity, and this CD was also unleashed on the world at the same moment in time for the holidays. Looking at the track listing, I was unimpressed: it looked like it was simply an excuse to release a new CD for raking in extra cash, and the fact that it also "boasted" not one, but *two* recordings of "Nearer My God To Thee" and "My Heart Will Go On" with movie dialogue added didn't exactly help boost my confidence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Seaworthy But... Jan. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
The follow-up soundtrack for Titanic is better than I expected. Sure, the only reason for its release, was to further exploit the success of the film. However, there are plenty of strong tracks from composer James Horner, to warrant purchase. The recording begins with an expansive track called "Titanic Suite". For this Horner hits all the right "notes" and combines many motifs heard in the film, as well as, the previous soundtrack. The nearly 20 minute suite is well orchestrated and certainly is a high point of the CD. The other highlight for me has to be "The Potrait". The track is an impressive piano solo by the composer himself. There's also 2 source music cues heard in the first half of the film, and a few additional cues by Horner, from the film that were not included on the first CD.
The CD is not without its faults though. I could have done without both versions of "Nearer My God To Thee" It seems like the only reason that there were 2 interpetations of that song was to pad the album. Speaking of padding, the CD's 11th track is Celine Dion singing "My Heart Will Go On". I have to say that I really HATE that song. The fact that someone added dialogue from the film didn't make me like the over rated song any more, than I did the first time I heard it. Talk about getting too much airplay.
Those problems aside, I still recommend this return trip based on the strength of Horner's "Titanic Suite", and the cues from the soundtrack that were not part of the original album. The CD has 13 tracks and runs for 79 minutes and 4 seconds

This soundtrack continues where James Horner's brilliant original score left off! The opening track, TITANIC SUITE, takes the listener down into the darkness of the R.M.S. TITANIC's present day watery grave, and then goes back to visions of her being built in Belfast, Ireland....to her triumphant departure on her maiden voyage in April 1912....and takes the listener to TITANIC's bow as we, once again, see Jack and Rose embracing....and grasping onto each other, later, after their fate had been painfully realized. It successfully summarizes the events of the film and of TITANIC's emotional impact on her passengers and crew. A very touching piece. This soundtrack also features the salon music selection: ALEXANDER'S RAGTIME BAND - a song played during that time period....performed, flawlessly, by the group: I Salonisti (they were also in the film). The remainder of the music tracks feature the selections not heard on the 1st soundtrack. THE PORTRAIT (Jack sketching a picture of Rose) is the beautifully played piano version of ROSE. Also featured are the upbeat "Irish jigs", heard and seen in the film (many of TITANIC's 3rd Class passengers were Irish immigrants, anxiously awaiting their opportunities in America). I absolutely recommend this soundtrack - be sure to get the 1st soundtrack of this magnificent movie, before getting this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first one ! March 18 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Back To Titanic" is such a beautiful piece of music. James Horner did such a superb job on this soundtrack. If you want a CD that calms you when your stressed out,then this is the one for you. I first fell in love with this CD when I watched the movie "Titanic" for the first time. I ran right out and bought the first soundtrack "Titanic:Music From The Motion Picture" Then when I found out about this one I knew I had to have it. I found that this one is better then the first one. The songs are much longer. Every time you listen to the songs they get better and better. I like to find a nice comfortable chair to sit in,and I like to close my eyes and lay my head back against the chair and just listen to each song. I find myself picturing scenes from "Titanic" that go with the song I'm listening to. One song in particular stands out in my mind as I am writing this and that is "My Heart Will Go On" which is sung by Celine Dion. The song has dialogue from the movie,and it makes it much more enjoyable to listen to. I recommend this soundtrack to anyone who is a "Titanic" fanatic.
