Atlantis: The Lost Empire (Soundtrack)

by James Newton Howard



For his score to Disney's latest animated feature, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, composer James Newton-Howard uses the same sensitivity that helped him to capture a child's sense of fear and wonder in his score for the spine-tingler The Sixth Sense. A six-time Oscar nominee (Prince of Tides, My Best Friend's Wedding) who also wrote the theme for ER and occasionally plays piano with Elton John's band, Newton-Howard has scored more than 65 feature films from a variety of genres. Teaming with Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren, Newton-Howard co-wrote the inspirational ballad that opens Atlantis, "Where the Dream Takes You," which is tenderly sung by R&B and pop princess Mya and thematically correlates to the film's tale of an inexperienced young adventurer. On "Submarine," violins, brass, flutes, timpani, and a wordless chorus conjure up the mystery and intensity of discovering this new land. Although Atlantis begins quietly, by the score's conclusion Newton-Howard's colorful use of triumphant trumpets, waves of violins, and angelic voices evokes an enchanting, watery underworld.

This is the most exiting,thrilling,and relaxing. If you've seen the Atlantis movie then it's almost like your seeing it again plus Where The Dream Takes You by Mya. It's the best soundtrack I've ever listened to. I think the best song is Milo Meets Kida it's extremely adventrous!!! It's worth every penny, buy it!!!
