Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Not exactly the most seamless adaptation ever attempted, this animated version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic swashbuckler (now set in outer space, even if the "ships" appear inexplicably unchanged since the 18th century) at least benefited from Disney's always high production standards. Those factors also insure that James Newton Howard's orchestral score is serviceably effervescent and retro enough for the film's storytelling gambit--if still a long way from the heights of Korngold's triumphant, genre-defining music for The Sea Hawk and other Errol Flynn swashbucklers; call it Captain Blood-lite. The studio's marketing-driven desire to have it both ways has also awkwardly sandwiched in a couple otherwise pleasant John Rzeznik-penned modern rock tracks, "I'm Still Here," performed by the Goo Goo Dolls singer himself, and BBMak's slightly funkier take of "Always Know Where You Are." --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Salty Sci-Fi sounds December 4, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I'm a fan both of the Goo Goo Dolls and of James Newton Howard's work scoring films, so this CD was a no-brainer for me. The first time I heard "I'm Still Here" on the radio, before I knew it was even associated with "Treasure Planet," I was hooked. Composed and performed by John Rzeznik (sorry if I spelled that wrong), it's got the classic tone and quality of the Goo Goo Dolls' best work and conveys a really powerful portrait of the Jim Hawkins character. The BBMak song isn't bad either, although it's quite evident listening to it that it feels more appropriate as the sort of stuff Rzeznik performs himself (he composed this one too).
Howard's score, as always, is great. A lot of the tracks have a real salty, seafaring, swashbuckling feel to them, yet Howard has managed to mix that feeling up with very modern instrumentation (I'm sure I heard a synthesizer in there somewhere) and great sci-fi-ish themes. He's a wonderful composer, right up there with John Williams and Howard Shore.

This review will focus mostly on the score for Treasure Planet by James Newton Howard. Treasure Planet is the third Disney film score composed by Howard and it is by far the best. He combines traditional 17th and 18th century music with modern influenced intruments to produce a totally fantastic adventure score. The score stays true to the nature of Stevenson's story yet at the same time is the perfect compliment to the movie. Overall an A+ and 5 star rating for the score. The two songs that go with the movie are fine in fact they are very good and much more tolerable than the recent Phil Collins songs for Tarzan so another A goes there. OVerall a great cd with a great score!

A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I just LOVED the movie and I got so hooked to "I'm Still Here" that I am now practically FORCING my mom to buy this CD for me. I really like the fact that the music is very Irish-sounding (please forgive me if you disagree) and is very easy to dance to. Conclusion: BUY THIS CD, IT'S AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh come ON!!!! November 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Not to dissappoint anyone, but since the MAJORITY of the score is taken up by James Newton Howard's excellent score, and since we already have 2 people who reviewed the 2 pop songs to the exclusion of everything else, I think I'll help out all the film score fans out there. I think the 2 songs at the beginning are the weak part of the album...
And since amazon didn't review it, and they didn't give you audio samples (as of this date), you'll have to just trust me, scary as that may be...
In the rush to get a helpful review to counter the bad ones, I have only listened to this score 5 times, all in the last 24 hours (which I guess is no small feat when you got 2 other scores in the same day).
The score's kinda like an odd mixing of the styles (not the themes) of Dinosaur and Waterworld. The main theme is great, and it has an electric guitar! Not that's anything special, but this time it sounds cool in an orchestral score. Dinosaur was brilliant, but this might just be better! It has all the adventure/action music you could hope for, though I think the most surprising music is the celtic soloists performing Silver's theme. Very enjoyable! The length's about 54 minutes altogether including the 2 badsongs. The music kind of drags a little bit in the middle, but picks up again very quickly with some absolutely outstanding cues like "Ben," "The Portal," and "Jim Saves the Crew." If you are a fan of Dinosaur and Atlantis, you won't be dissappointed with Treasure Planet. At the very least, it will be talked about among JNH fans for a long time to come.
Hope that was more helpful for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beter than I expected! May 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I enjoyed most of James Newton Howard's movie scores, especially his spine-tingling music from the movie 'Signs'. I bought this CD, not knowing whether there would be any memorable pieces of music on this album. Well, luckily there was! The Treasure Plant theme is reminiscent of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Atlantis, what with all the blaring of the trumpets.
Some of the scores actually sound more intense and frightening than the scenes they accompany in the movie! And the two pop-rock songs on the soundtrack are listenable, thankfully. My favorite track on this CD is number 05: Rooftop. Its soft yet powerful at the same time, and then it suddenly takes a different, more sinister direction. Newton may not be as good as say, John Williams, but he's still good at this stuff. 'Tis the power of the orchestra.
