Summary Of Dinosaur (Original Soundtrack)
The opening inseparable double-act of "Inner Sanctum/The Nesting Grounds" followed by "The Egg Travels" represents the first of two uncharacteristically brave, musical choices made by Disney. This is a completely dialogue-free ten minutes starting the movie which, like the trailer that preceded it, tells its story solely through music. The second act of bravery is the complete absence of a single song. Newton Howard, therefore, had both a great weight and freedom on his shoulders. His response is something with the ethnic anywhere percussive feel of The Lion King coupled with a romanticism John Williams would be happy with. After this overture is the love theme for "Aladar and Neera", which is one of the most beautiful melodies the composer has ever produced. The rest of the album follows the overture stylistically, punctuated frequently by angry bursts of electronically augmented percussion. "Raptors/Stand Together" is the best example of this, and also illustrates that the cues are a jumble of the film's chronology since this is the climactic battle finale. The absence of songs means this won't appeal to the usual kiddie collectors, but everyone else should admire Disney's bravery. --Paul TonksDinosaur (Original Soundtrack) include The Egg Travels, The Courtship, Raptors / Stand Together, The Carnotaur Attack, The Cave, The End Of Our Island, They're All Gone, Across The Desert, Aladar & Neera, Breakout, Can Somebody Tell Me Who I Am, Epilogue, Finding Water, Inner Sanctum / The Nesting Grounds, It Comes With A Pool, Kron & Aladar Fight, Neera Rescues The Orphans
