You wouldn't know this is a kids film.
By: AdamR

You hear the sweeping violins playing a thematic tune on the album, while Diana Ross sings of working together to make dreams come true. Powerful kettledrums shake your speakers in action scenes. Oh, and did I mention this orchestral work of art is the underscore to a film made for seven year olds? If you knew nothing of the film, the tile, or the track names, you'd be hard pressed to believe it.

James Horner in his early animated film score career gave us two formidable scores--An American Tail and the Land Before Time, both of which were directed by ex-Disney animator Don Bluth. Horner's later animated film offerings don't stand up to these earlier scores, which are often considered to be some of the best Horner has done in his career.

The Land Before Time's music is a mix of soft strings, bold brass lines, and fierce action cues when the movie calls for it. "Sharptooth and the Earthquake" is a huge track incorporating all of these pieces of music, starting slow and soft as Littlefoot's mom explains of the treestars, and rising to a full, fierce action cue as Littlefoot almost becomes a T-rex's dinner. "Whispering Winds" is the score's slowest and softest track, bringing an instrumental version of "If We Hold on Together" into the mix to explain not only the death of a parent, but also the friendship of others to reach a goal. The grandest piece of the entire score is the latter half of a 12-minute track titled "Rescue/Discovery of the Great Valley" when the T-rex is defeated on the clif with a strong brass motif, and later when the young dinosaurs find the Great Valley and the main theme of the film is played in all its glory with a full orchestra of strings, woodwinds, and choir.

This score is not easy to find being long out of print, and paying over $50.00 for a copy is not unusual. Horner fans and soundtrack fans have long cherished this album. If you can find a copy for yourself, melt away as the sweeping themes of the Land Before Time envelope you into a melodic musical expeience.
