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.com

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

The music is so haunting, yet beautiful and peaceful.
Emily Todd
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!'
Ilaxi S. Patel
With this soundtrack James Horner has established himself among one of the best composers.

The soundtrack for Titanic, has been one of the best soundtracks yet made. Many will not agree but when you listen to it closely, the rhythm, words or no words, touch deep within the heart. These can even bring tears to your eyes. When I first saw the movie, I didn't think of it much but sad, now that it's been a few years since I saw it, I can relate to the movie, not with the experiences but with the music that was made for it. It really makes a connection. This has been so far, the best soundtrack I have ever heard, and the movie, is my all time favorite. I really hope that once, when you get a chance to listen to the item played, you can hear their meaning.

THIS ALBUM IS AN ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE! I am sure that I will never here a better movie soundtrack in my lifetime! The music, alone, is incredible. It would be beautiful music, even if it didn't have a movie to follow. Each track provides me with such a clear visual image that I would not have to see the movie, to have a good idea as to what is happening in the movie. I listen to the SouthHampton track and I visualize the hustle and bustle of a tiny harbor city. I listen to the Leaving Port track and I visualize the grandeur of a massive ship leaving port, with all eyes on it. The track where the iceberg is spotted is really a work of genius. You can hear where they are trying to reverse engines. It is also very clear in this piece of music where the crew has done all they can, and they watch skittishly as they attempt to clear the large piece of ice. Believe me, Mr. Horner placed countless hours matching the music to the scenes. I can not say enough about the music, and the perfect matching of music and scenes. James Horner uses every modern sound device, chorus voices, and a beautiful orchestra to portray scenes from almost a hundred years past. I enjoy every minute of this album. I can honestly say "this piece of music is a must". It is 5 star material

I really don't understand why people hate this soundtrack. The music is so powerful and strong... This is clearly James Horner's greatest album.

4/5- "Never an Absolution": I'm not really sure where this played into the movie, but the vocals really give boost to the instruments.

4/5- "Distand Memories": This isn't my favorite, but I love the beginning sounds. They're very calming...

5/5- "Southampton": This is one of my favorites. Plain and simple.

5/5- "Rose": One of the best songs on the soundtrack. The vocals and instruments mix wonderfully. Not only is it played in one of the best scenes of the movie [the flying scene], but it is very well written.

5/5- "Leaving Port": Again, one of my favorites. What else is there to say?

3/5- "Take Her to Sea, Mr. Murdoch": I usually don't really pay attention to this song, since it sounds similar to "Leaving Port", but nonetheless, it is still moving.

4/5- "Hard to Starboard": This song leads into the sinking part of the movie, and it is where the soundtrack starts to turn darker. It fits very well with the scene, although it is a little long...

5/5- "Unable to Stay, Unwilling to Leave": This is my favorite track. The vocals are so haunting, and they really make tears come to your eyes. It is very moving and powerful, and it fits well in the different scenes it is played in, very smooth.

4/5- "The Sinking": This is a track that is really dark. It shows true emotion, and that is one of the reasons why it fits so well...

3/5- "Death of Titanic": The title just makes me sad. The instruments are loud and clear, full of emotion, but the song drags on.

4/5- "A Promise Kept": This song sounds dark, too. Darker than the others.

The very first soundtrack composed by James Horner that i listened to was Braveheart. It captured emotions perfectly and was also a great inpirational and background album. 1 year later i watched the movie 'Titanic' and apart from the the extremely emotionally impacting story, the music just amazed me the first time. 1 week later i bough the soundtrack and it is nothing short of amazing. The emotions that the music brings up in these pieces is immense and i would even say i prefer it over Braveheart. My four favourits are numbers 4,7,11 and 13.They capture the action and the emotion all the way through and remind you greatly of the movie and the tragedy that the disaster caused. This is a must have even if you dont like classical music. James Horners orchestral version of "My Hear Will Go On" is the best version of the song ive heard. Go and get the album today - you wont regret it!

As a fan of classical-styled film scores, I've developed an affinity for the works of various composers who work mostly in this genre. Topmost among these artists is, of course, John Williams, but as moviegoers and music lovers know so well, there are other, just as equally talented composers who enhance the moving images we see on those theater screens with their compositions.

I first became aware of James Horner when Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan premiered in June of 1982. Director Nicholas Meyer, anxious to give his entry in the Star Trek franchise its own identity apart from the less-than-acclaimed first motion picture, commissioned the young Horner to write a score that evoked the nautical traditions Meyer wanted to infuse into his vision of Starfleet and the starship Enterprise. He asked for, and got, music that calls to mind seagoing sailing frigates and the age of Horatio Hornblower, albeit with a 23rd Century backdrop of dueling starships.

Considering Horner's penchant for composing scores with nautical or exploration-adventure themes (Clear and Present Danger, Apollo 13), it's not surprising that director James Cameron would ask the now-established composer to write the music for his 1997 tale of star-crossed love aboard the even more star-crossed Titanic.

And why not? Horner uses all his expertise with seafaring and action-adventure themes in creating one of the most popular film scores in history and the one that would earn the composer an Academy Award for Best Original Score in March of 1998.
