Product Description

Product Description

The soundtrack to James Cameron's epic film, featuring James Horner's Oscar-winning score and Celine Dion's smash My Heart Will Go On-Love Theme from Titanic .

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

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.

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.

When I saw the movie, the music gripped me spellbound and its simply powerful, tintilising and haunting memories of an unforgettable tale of the sinking of Titanic. Superb Soundtracks and breadthless, amazing masterpiece scores! The CD is a must for Collector's choice pick and I sure recommend this one - Titanic, the lingering romantic music that soars life to joy listening the pieces. Undoubtedly, all version sung of 'My heart will go on' stand class apart and Celine Dion has prooved best voice par excellence! Rose is my fav number but the Irish dance number of Jack n Rose by Galic storm is missing. The last song, Hymn to the Sea is chilling reminding of the tragic scenes. Take her to sea is a nice musical piece and almost all songs I love because the Titanic is simply Awesome Musical melodious, romantic and memorable. I would recommend 'If you've seen the movie, sure you would love to buy the Cd and if you haven't seen the movie, yet buy the CD and watch the movie too!' A great movie and great Music pick - That's 'Titanic'

The music James Horner has written for Titanic is a thing of great beauty. I personally have never seen the movie, but I found this soundtrack deeply emotional and evocative, sometimes haunting, sometimes powerful. It doesn't quite make it up to five stars simply because the tracks aren't as disparate (separately defined), musically speaking, as a really great soundtrack should be, but it is still outstanding.

Those who prefer songs, however, might want to go with something else. Classically orchestrated music is not for everyone. Some people prefer songs, lyricized music to spell out the situation, the emotion; others are drawn to the deeper-seated, implicit sense of emotion that you will find here. Think of it this way: TV vs. books. Some of us would much rather watch TV than read a book, simpy because you can see everything; everything is clear. Others like books better, because even though you have to reach further to see the things written, it is your own mind that puts those things to life. Listening to a score like this -- a wonderful, orchestral score -- is like that, because you reach with your mind to find the emotions, rather than depending on sung lyrics.
P.S. None of which is to say that this *cannot* be appreciated by those who prefer songs, or vice versa. 'My Heart Will Go On,' as performed by Celine Dion, is spine-chilling.
