Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that though the movie Titanic is a bit too scary and mature for young kids, theĀ TitanicĀ soundtrack is an OK listen for younger and older kids alike. All of the songsĀ but one are instrumental, and the track with lyrics is just a simple, clean song about enduring love.Ā

Kids say

What's the story?

TITANIC (MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE) is the soundtrack to the blockbuster hit Titanic,Ā among the highest-grossing films ever. All but one of the songsĀ is instrumental -- written, orchestrated, and conducted by James Horner. The single song with lyrics, "My Heart Will Go On," is performed by powerhouse vocalist Celine Dion.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

The bold, sweeping sounds of these lovely and, at times, powerful tracks fits the majestic mood of this larger-than-life film. Known for weaving choral and Celtic tones into his music, Horner makes use of both here to good effect. Though it falls a bit on the sugary-sweet side, Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" will appeal to those who valueĀ vocals above all else.Ā
