Product Description

Amazon.ca

The 1997 Academy Award winner for Best Dramatic Score, James Horner's Titanic was the first soundtrack to reach the No. 1 slot on the Billboard charts in two decades; it also seemed to rival the Big Mac in sales for the year. And what can we say about Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On"; would "ubiquitous" suffice?

Horner's combination of synths, chorale, and orchestra perfectly underscores the action in director James Cameron's 20th-century melodrama. It's a finely honed piece of Hollywood craftsmanship from a composer who has tackled more musically adventuresome projects in his career. FYI: Horner's follow-up to Titanic was the score for a different disaster: Deep Impact. --Jerry McCulley

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Titanic (Anniversary Edition) comes in two versions: a 2 CD set consisting of Titanic OST (disc 1 of the 4 CD set), plus I Salonisti Sessions (disc 3 of the 4 CD set). The second is a 4 CD Collector's Anniversary Edition with disc 1 (Titanic OST), disc 2 (Back To Titanic), disc 3 (I Salonisti Sessions) and disc 4 (Popular Music from Titanic Era), with expanded booklet with new liner notes and previously unseen photos, with 4 vintage Titanic luggage stickers.

I am sure most of you would have purchased the Titanic OST and Back To Titanic OST already. The decision is whether it is worthwhile to double dip into either the 2 CD or 4 CD set. Undecided?...please read on:

Disc 1: Titanic OST:

I would expect that with the 2012 technology, the music would have been completely remastered to the highest level. But alas, when I compared with the original CD that I bought in 1997, there is no difference in the sound. Remastering is only fair, using today's standards. However, the contents are of course excellent. Since this disc has sold over 26 million worldwide, most of you would have a copy already.

Disc 2: Back To Titanic:

When I compared to the disc that I bought in 1998, I found again that there is no significant improvement in the sound. Of course from this set, the most remarkable and haunting track is My Heart Will Go On with dialogue from the film cleverly chosen and blended into the soundtrack. This is the track that I would play for my friends because the mixing of dialogue and music really added tremendous emotional attachment to the film...really one of a kind. Since this disc only sold 3 million copies, you may or may not have a copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the extended edition we had hope for... April 21 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One must be content with what life and Sony has to offer heh?

Anyway, nice packaging and the stickers are an added bonus. I am a huge fan of anything to do with the movie so I don't mind all the period music, but if you're only looking for new material from Horner, then no, don't buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterwork Feb. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Beautiful compositions, incredible performances, Simply magnificent in every respect.
This film was and remains a juggernaut, and James Horner's score is up to the task. His mixture of various musical styles is very appropriate for the film, and works well musically also. Clearly Horner did his "homework" about Titanic history; perhaps his work on the Glory and Braveheart soundtracks also helped him in telling this story. Horner's uncanny ability to combine the human voice with various musics while staying true to the story is amazing.
This album contains the best of the various Celine Dion "My Heart Will Go On" versions. I don't really have the words to describe what Celine has done here; she has painted a masterpiece, a Mona Lisa, a singular work of art that will go on for all time. The various parodies of her performance (on Saturday Night Live, for instance) are only a testament to the magnitude of her accomplishment. She doesn't sing about love on this song....she becomes love. I mean she must have been out of her mind and body when she was in the studio singing this. All I know is that I would have been crying for at least a half hour watching and listening to her sing this in the studio as it was being recorded. If this was done in only one take, as another reviewer notes, it was all that was necessary. It is a religious experience listening to her sing that song.

4.0 out of 5 stars romance and tragedy evoked in music May 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
James Horner, one of our best film composers alive today, did a very able job with this sountrack. The haunting vocal melodies are especially memorable to me. I only wish that on the soundtrack the vocals were real, not synthesized. They definately sound better when it's real voice. The music here is at times light and romantic, at other times intense and suspenseful, but always soulful and emotional. The dominating melodic theme of Titanic is like something from an Irish shanty, and it literally smells of the sea. "Rose" and "Hymn to the Sea" are my favorite parts. A beautiful piece of work.

I remember watching Titanic when I was eight years old. The music was breathtaking. Mind you, before Titanic I didn't care much for a movie score. Nothing was as spellbinding as this. I fell in love with the music. For an eight year old to fall in love with it...well it really does say something. The music enhances the emotional impact of the tradegy and heart-breaking love story. Sometimes I thought that the movie was nothing without the score but then... the music wouldn't be as emotional without the scenes and the movie as a whole. The music brings you back to Titanic and has images of the scenes pop into your head. It makes it all the more meaningful. It is subtle and beautifully written. It is in no way boring. It uses the same themes with a little bit of change. The reason, I believe, Mr.Horner didn't make a mess full of themes for different parts of the movie was because, for instance, the track of rose fit in perfectly with the two scenes it was played with. Both of the scenes brought out a side of that specific piece of music. The Take her to sea, Mr.Murdoch track is powerful and stately just like the ship itself was. All the grandeur is interpreted into powerful thematic music in that track. Southampton and Leaving Port are also riveting. An ocean of memories, A promise to keep and Distant memories are beautiful and sad. It's heart-wrenching. Unable to stay, Unwilling to leave is one of my favorite tracks besides Rose and the rest I've mentioned. It reminds me of the beautiful reunion scene. The dramatic sinking ship tracks are well done. I love this cd. It's a great therapy, at least for me when I'm down or need to experience magic that can be felt by the senses. That my two cents for ya.

1.0 out of 5 stars Might well be the most overrated score ever written
First of all, James Horner is talented; VERY talented, that is.
But Titanic is so horribly overrated that it makes you cringe. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Celine and Sissel
As if Sissel's haunting voice during the soundtrack isn't superb enough, we hear Celine's "My Heart Will Go On" as the ending credits are scrolled. Read more
