The sound of the cd is better than the original, though still falls short of the gold disc that was released years back.. but I don't think you'll be disappointed at all. Released expanded versions of soundtracks seems to be a trend these days. Classic scores such as "Superman" offer so much more than their original releases. Let's hope it continues!
As for Dances, an already spectacularly moving and beautifully crafted score just got better.
One side note, the liner notes are great, though I wish the photos on the inside were in color instead of black and white. I'm sure they were going for a certain "feel" but this movie had so many great colors and costumes it would have been nice to have an equally colorful insert book. I'm certainly not complaining though.. I've been waiting for this cd for well over a decade.
To begin with, the themes are perfect, emotional, and they so aptly evoke the aura of the landscape that viewing the film almost becomes unecessary. Even someone who prefers big-brass action scores could not ignore the beauty of this piece, though it is almost all centered around a truly lush string section.
There is never a dull moment as passage leads to passage, all incorporating the majesty of the 19th century environment and the admirable simplicity of the Native American peoples. This score is absolutely deserving of the Oscar it won back in 1990.
In conclusion, this score is a must-have for any fan of film scores, orchestral works, or simply just a passion for great cinema. John Barry's contribution is simply magnificent; no other composer could have scored Dances with Wolves with the same passion, grandeur, and absolute perfection. This is a CD that you can put in your stereo, sit down, relax, and forget the world by entering an awe-inspiring moment in history. The effect is simply breathtaking!
