Editorial Reviews

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Titanic's launch and the 15th anniversary of the world's most beloved and acclaimed film, Sony Classical proudly releases the Collector's Anniversary Edition of Music from the Motion Picture TITANIC. The 4-CD set features newly remastered versions of both the original and BACK TO TITANIC soundtracks, a previously unreleased disc of period music recorded for the movie by I Salonisti, the 5-piece quintet that appears in the film, as well as Popular Music From The Titanic Era, a new compilation of songs from the early 1900's. The package includes 4 bonus vintage Titanic luggage stickers and a booklet with previously unseen production photos, James Cameron's original liner notes for TITANIC, "I Salonisti Sessions" liner note by John Altman, an I Salonisti book excerpt by Gisela Trost, historic photos, and the new liner note "Ship of Dreams" by Lucy Cross. Composer James Horner says "I'm thrilled that Sony Classical is re-releasing the soundtrack album to TITANIC. It is wonderful to know that the original music has retained its magic through all of these years."

This is one of my all-time favorite film scores, and I am a tremendous film score buff. As a maritime historian with a particular interest in the "Titanic," the score for this movie has captivated me from day one. I bought the original CD in November of 1997, before I ever saw the movie, and all these years later, it remains my favorite James Horner score. So it was with great anticipation that I picked this re-release up.

The pros: CD's 1 - 3. Discs 1 and 2 of this 4-CD set are exact track and content match re-releases of "Titanic" and "Back to Titanic." That said, the two discs have been digitally re-mastered, and they sound absolutely fantastic - better than the originals. Incredible. These two discs alone are worth the price of the set, even if you have the originals to compare them to. Disc 3 contains much of the music that would have been played aboard the ship, as recorded by I Salonisti - the musical ensemble who starred in the film. Very nice selections, and the quality is great.

The cons: CD 4. Much of the music on this disc is simply unbearable. They are antique recordings, but many of them were recorded long after "Titanic" sank in 1912, and bear a distinctly '20's and '30's feel. They would feel right at home in a score for "The Legend of Bagger Vance," but strike no chords to Titanic's era. The earliest recording comes from 1914, and the last was actually recorded in 1946! Even worse, not only are the recordings made in a much later, much "jazzier" style than would have been heard aboard the "Titanic," but the actual pieces playing don't bear any resemblance to the instruments used aboard the liner.

I had originally bought the film soundtrack back in 1997 after the movie had come out because the music was so amazing, but for years I had felt that there was so much missing. Somehow I missed the follow-up album, Back to Titanic which included many of the "missing" tracks from the first one such as Nearer My God to Thee and An Irish Party In Third Class. None of this matters now that this Collector's Edition is available!

Here's how this set breaks down:

Disc 1 :: The original soundtrack, remastered. I have the original and after listening to both of them, I can tell you that there is a difference! This new copy is much more crisp and you can almost hear things not found in the original. This could play into the fact that I'm using studio monitors rather than standard computer speakers, but either way, it sounds much better!

Disc 2 :: The original follow up soundtrack, Back To Titanic, remastered. I never owned the original, so I can't compare, but this disc also sounds amazing and it's so nice to get to hear some of the other important musical selections that didn't make it to the original soundtrack.

Disc 3 :: Background music, remastered. You can finally hear the instrumentals that are mostly used as background music without all the dialog and other sound effects. In the film, these tracks were used to set the scenes and in some cases were not heard through their entirety or were too soft to pick up much from it.

Disc 4 :: The music on this disc never appeared in the film, but was added to the collection because they were popular songs during Titanic's era.

As a huge fan of the soundtrack to 'Titanic', I was excited when I saw that this soundtrack had been released. At last, here was an opportunity for the powers that be to fix the two major problems with the original releases - all the missing recordings, and those silly dialogue insertions into their recordings of "An Irish Party in Third Class" and "Come Josephine In My Flying Machine". However, caution prevailed - I resolved to borrow this soundtrack from a friend before buying it. I am so glad that I did. To my frustration, I found that, while some additional tracks from the excellent 'I Salonisti' and other groups had been included, apparently no one had the common sense to remove the movie dialogue from any of the songs featured. Why would anyone want to pay extra money to get the same music they bought before, still flawed with "Look, Jack, there's a boat!" and other nonsense? To my mind that detracts seriously from one's ability to appreciate and listen to the music. Shame on you, Sony Masterworks!

There are a lot of Titanic haters out there, and I'm not one of them. James Cameron made an extremely romantic Hollywood epic that deserves the praise and billions of dollars to its name. You could probably sink 10 Titanics with all the tears created from this movie over the years, and all that credit goes to James Horner's magnificent and timeless score. While traditionalists will complain of his use of synth vocals and overuse of his "danger motif" one can't deny the visceral power of this score. Everyone and their mother can identify this score just from a few notes, and that speaks volume. If this music connects with that many people then James Horner was definitely doing something right. It's undoubtedly one of his most accomplished works and is a thing of pure beauty. For the 100th anniversary of the sinking and 15th anniversary of the film Sony has revisited the soundtrack. The 4 discs include remastered versions of the original two releases as well as a large selection of period music.

The score for Titanic is the best of James Horner and everything he offers as one of the greatest composers in the industry. Within the first few seconds of listening to this I was immediately transported back to the film and when you close your eyes something magical does indeed happen. It's powerful stuff when music lives within you and can be reawakened so easily. For people my age we grew up with this film and this score. I remember having the 2-VHS set of the movie and I remember having the soundtrack when I was little. The hymns and arrangements strike deep. There's something so richly romantic about it and everyone knows it. The tragedy that echoes throughout the entire score foreshadows everything that is to come right from the start.
