When I read here at Amazon that this was one of Horner's best soundtracks, even better than "Titanic" and up there with "Glory", I was a little skeptical. After all, this was a kiddie cartoon, and one I don't remember too fondly from my younger days. However, being open minded about it, and liking many of Horner's other works, I decided to go ahead and get it, unheard at all. Besides, at the price it is here, you're not losing much if it's bad. Upon hearing it though, I was amazed. It WAS really great! In fact, it's become an immediate favorite, which I listen to frequently. I would definitely rate it higher that "Titanic", and right up there with "Glory", and "The Rocketeer" as Horner's best. The main themes are very beautiful, and the rest of the music is also pleasant to listen to. Another thing: I don't often like the songs thrown onto these soundtracks to go along with the movie, and especially not in the middle of the CD! But in the case of "The Land Before Time", I really love the song, "We will hold on Together", and look forward to it's playing, even in the middle like it is. As Horner often does, he composes a song in which the music is the same as the basic theme of the entire CD, (Ex: Titanic, Mask of Zorro, Mighty Joe Young) and it fits beautifully. All in all, this is one of my favorite scores, and I have about 50 of them. I definitely say, whatever you thought of the movie, or think it must be like, GET THIS SOUNDTRACK! If you like beautiful music, or are a Horner fan, this is a must have. You won't be dissapointed.
