This is best described as a cross between Star Wars and Home Alone, with a few hints of E.T., and an overall fairy tale tenor like Edward Scissorhands. All that to say though, it is a pretty, engaging soundtrack. My main complaint is that the songs included are cheesy, especially the first one. The third track, Banning Back Home, is also quite different than the rest of the score, although that is not saying it's bad. A big plus is the length, about 75 mins., and combine that with an excellent price, and you get a soundtrack that's definitely worth getting.
One thing I must say though after reading a number of other people's reviews of Williams' work, is that a lot of his music does sound alike, contrary to what a lot of die-hard "Williams is the greatest" fans. I'm not saying Wiliiams isn't a great composer, and maybe even the best of our era, I'm just saying his music often does sound like "Williams" music, as I described this soundtrack at the beginning. But it's definitely a score worth getting, although I recomend also getting both Home Alone soundtracks, which are in my opinion, even better. Those, along with Hook, are some of Williams' best, most unheralded scores, and definite must-haves for Williams fans, and pretty music lovers alike.
