I think the title says it all but where's Never Say Never. It's nowhere.


Okay I dont want 'put jacket on take jacket off' i want NEVER SAY NEVER- did it get lost or something - where is it?


Hopefully itunes will soon pick up on the fact that they have the wrong description here, as this score sounds nothing like Titanic. Aside from a few stylistic elements and the odd reference to scores past, this is a pretty fresh and impressive piece of work - hugely dynamic and highly emotional.
