4.0 out of 5 stars Horner's "Zorro" Sequel Scores a Huge Success October 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Scoring a sequel film is something of a thankless task, especially when you wrote the original score and it was acclaimed as a solid effort. James Horner certainly did fine work with "The Mask of Zorro" and if anything he has surpassed himself with "The Legend of Zorro." True, he has taken advantage of numerous themes and motifs from the original, but he has also added a great deal of new material for this outstanding production. It should also be noted that writing effective music for a swashbuckler is dangerous duty given the legacy of Erich Wolfgang Korgold, Max Steiner, and Alfred Newman (who also worked with the Zorro mystic). Horner joins that esteemed company with his two Zorro scores. His music is perfectly suited to scenes with foil (or sabre). This is a lengthy (over 75 minutes) soundtrack that surprises in many places, and never drags a bit. An able production by Sony with adequate packaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun! November 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"The Legend of Zorro"

The movie comes at an unusual time, seven years after it's predecessor. Why one only has to wonder what took them so long to get around to it, it's provided us with a new James Horner score at the very least. The first score was one of his best action scores... fun, inventive, and with excellent themes. Everyone raved about Horner's creativity, how much different it was from the rest of his work. He's now returned for a sequel (he doesn't do many of those, he's only scored sequels for "An American Tail", "Cocoon", "48 Hrs" and "Star Trek") to "Zorro" and like his other sequel scores ("An American Tail 2" excepted), it's quite similar to the first one. The opening track, "Collecting the Ballots" begins with the same hard guitar strum as the first, and the notes of clapping that follow are identical to the original score as well... fortunately, it's not a complete repeat after that. The same themes are utilized throughout the score, there's no significant new ones (aside from a "false love theme", you'll understand when you see the movie), but Horner uses them in different enough ways to make this score interesting. The instrumentation is the same (clapping hands, stomping feet, tambourines, guitars, ethnic pipes, and blaring horns) but the rhythms and paces are different.

The overall feel of the score is slightly more playful than the original, but it never feels cartoonish. It's simply more fun and less threatening than the original score. Whether this is a pro or con I will leave up to you. The love theme is used more often than the main theme this time around, and it's featured in stunning arrangements several times, but the focus of this score is action music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, A Total Continuity November 22, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
What a great work. When i first listened to the soundtrack, i taught that i was mistaken. The first track begins with the same thrilling guitar and flamenco beats as "The Mask of Zorro" but James Horner went even further with this soundtrack, composing a score in total continuity with the previous Zorro. Same entertainment, same joy everytime you listen to it. A great score that somehow brings us 7 years ago, where "The Mask..." let us. The same themes are back with a new touch of the Maestro, unforgettable. His name is Horner. James,Horner. Thank You.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound track February 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack for the movie "Legend of Zorro" is far and away greater than the soundtrack for the original movie. It is the perfect piece for putting on in the background while you work or resting your thoughts. There is just the feeling of a fine wine when it's playing. I love the Spainish sound of guitar and orchestration. My office partner finds it wonderful to listen to also. For those who like soundtracks this is a must, and if you just like wonderful music, again, it is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Horner, the legend has returned!" February 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD
With "Collecting the Ballots" we are reintroduced to the awesome prelude Horner composed for The Mask of Zorro. The difference is that after the tap dancing and clapping, there's no loud bang of the main theme. The theme is expanded a bit and later makes its soft, heroic appearance.

The talk and hype of this album is the longest track: "The Train." Horner composes many long tracks for other works but this is one of, if not, his longest action track to date. It starts hard and fast with a Spanish trumpet, tapping and percussion all leading up to the very Spanish, fun Zorro theme at the 1-minute mark. From there it's non-stop action to the very end. This is one sweeping, swashbuckling ride of a score.

If you enjoyed the first Zorro music, you'll enjoy this one. However, there are no new themes only a multiple amount of use of the romantic theme from the first Zorro. This could be good or bad. It depends on your taste.

The action tracks really make this an awesome score. It's difficult to pick one composition over the over; Mask of Zorro or Legend of Zorro?

This is James Horner's best action score of the year. Add this one to your collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! November 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When I first bought this soundtrack, I was skeptical. I thought that it could never measure up to "The Mask of Zorro." I was wrong. "The Legend of Zorro" takes the themes and cues from the first movie and recreates the magic of swordplay/adventure. This album is much easier to listen to and to enjoy than the other soundtrack. If you aren't a James Horner fan and want new themes in this new album, stay away! But(!!!), if you want some of the best film, adventure, action, swashbuckling (I could go on and on) music ever made, I strongly suggest that you buy it.

For those of you who will, prepare to be swept away by this truly amazing musical experience!!!
