Sometimes Barry will base an entire score around just one theme, rarely deviating from presenting one variation of that theme after another, and it's an approach that can work wonders. For Dances with Wolves, however, he came up with at least a dozen distinct themes, and what makes the score so impressive is that each of them is quite brilliant. Barry famously said that just because Out of Africa is set there, it doesn't mean the score needed to be African in nature, and it's a lesson which many of his peers could have done with learning over the years: film music doesn't usually need to simply tell the viewer what they can already see, the best film music takes a step back and offers a deeper look at what the film and its characters are actually about. Dances with Wolves is a classic example: who would ever have thought that Barry's latter day romantic style would have been appropriate for a western - but it's so appropriate, it's as if he were born to score the film.

Just as all of the film is told through the eyes of Lieutenant John Dunbar, so is all of the score. Every note of the music is emphasising Dunbar's own state of mind, from his wonder at the landscape to his horror at violence and his delight when romance arrives for him. The main theme which everyone knows is "The John Dunbar Theme", heard on countless compilation albums and at countless concerts; it's really a very simple piece, but features one of Barry's effortless melodic hooks and is virtually impossible to dislike. It receives several variations over the course of the album, including a heartbreakingly beautiful (and desperately sad) arrangement in "Journey to the Buffalo Killing Ground". Its most uptempo arrangement - and also the closest the score comes to sounding like a classic western in the Bernstein mould - is "The Buffalo Hunt", presented in two versions here, both Barry's original (preferred) one and the rearrangement heard in the film.

Of the other themes, the most delightful is the journey music of "Journey to Fort Sedgewick" (greatly expanded on this album compared with previous releases), perfectly capturing the spectacular beauty of the landscape. There is also the playful beauty of "Two Socks The Wolf", a particularly thin and light piece centered around a lovely flute solo; the long-lined romance of the love theme; thrilling, heroic action theme of "Rescue of Dances with Wolves"; and raw, powerful no-holds-barred action of "Pawnee Attack".
