How this album, or the original OST, never won an Oscar is just beyond me. Especially with the phenominal success of the original song 'Somewhere Out There'. Well, James Horner didn't win anything until 1998 with his awesome music for 'Titanic', but still here you have his greatest work. I like to consider both the An American Tail soundtracks as one, and that's how they look in my 'An American Tail' playlist... But since this is technically only the soundtrack for the 2nd movie, I shall focus on that.

1. 'Dreams to Dream': Well this is my favourite song of all time, so my judgment may be a little bit flawed. It's not just the song, it's the tune. Something very soulful is going on there. It's the kind of music you listen to intensely sometimes because you feel like there's something there that you just can't quite pick up on. Linda Ronsdadt does a great job singing this, but sometimes I yearn to hear the Celine Dion version that was recorded before the film's release.

2. 'An American Tail Overture': To me, this is sort of like a: "Hello, remember us? We're the music from the original, only improved! And here's a few more melodies you might want to remember for the rest of the movie". For anyone who gets chills from the main theme of these movies, well there's a much nicer violin version at the very beginning, but this track becomes much happier and upbeat than the very moving but subsequently heartbreaking music of the first album. You've got Russian-esque themes mixing well with sudden festive Western melodies. It's one of the best tracks on the album.

3. 'Cat Rumble': I never really liked this until recently, but when you come down to it there's a lot to admire about this long piece. It starts out crazy, and then becomes a sort of jazz-style epic.

An American Tail is perhaps Speilberg's greatest legacy in the animation industry. The first part was a huge success, and the second part is no exception. The movie itself is full of action, humour, adventure and so much more. In addition, it has a steller soundtrack to accompany the movie. The disc starts off with Linda Ronstadt singing "Dreams To Dream." This is truly a beautiful peace of music that is quite soulful. Fans of the movie will recall Tanya singing part of the song. In the movie though, Cathy Cavadini dons the honours of Tanya's singing voice. Some say Cathy does a better job on the song, but to me it's a bit of a tough call. Both excell at what they intend to do.....entertain. "Way Out West" is another catchy pop song that is very singable. The only other vocal track features Cathy singing "The Girl You Left Behind." This song is great toe-tapping, sing-along fun. The remainder of the disc features instrumental work by the great James Horner. Tracks 2, 12, and 13 are excellent Horner-fare, and are simply wonderful. Track 8 is a very lively peace, where as I find Track 9 to resemble the music of Peter And The Wolf. Track 3 has a westerny feel to it, Track 6 is your basic intrumental piece, and Track 10 is a wonderfully soft piece. Lastly, Track 4 is very soothing and melodic, whereas Track 14 is simply phenomenal. It's beautifully melodic, lively, toe-tapping, Happy Trailsy, and so much more. It essentially has bits of everything thrown into it. Perhaps that's what makes it the most unique track on the album. Overall, this disc is simply awesome. James Horner is perhaps one of the two best film-score composers in the industry today (the other one is John Williams). I highly recommend this disc, as it can be enjoyed by almost anybody.Read more ›

If you've never seen the film, you've missed out on one of the greatest animated films of all time. But those who have will probably find the soudtrack hard to forget. Dreams to Dream is a great song, but the score is truly the gem of the CD. I purchused this CD over 2 months ago and I listen to the whole thing every other day, at least. It's that good. The score is primarily western themed music: guitars, trumpets and some fiddle, banjo and harmonica thrown in as well. Most of the songs have that sounds-kinda-familiar quality, especially the "Training" song, which has obvious refrences to Aaron Coplands "Rodeo"(some know it as the "Beef is whats for Dinner" commercial theme). The Soundtrack also has some of the origanal Russian themed music to it(which sounds alot like Balto and Enemy at the Gates) which blends nicely to the western themed stuff and gives a little variation to the CD. I, personally, love this CD, I was willing to pay 30 buck for it USED. The CD is great for yourself or as a gift. You'll appreciate it if you have a love for the Old West or if you love good western music. I personally recommend to anyone.

Highly influenced by the style of music contained in Aaron Coplands RODEO (Hoedown in particular), Mr Horner shows again how an average film can be made into an interesting film by use of atmospheric incidental composition. For me this soundtrack would appear in my top 5. (No.1 still being the soundtrack to KRULL. Which was composed incidently....
