While I love the score to The Fugitive, this release from 1993 does not contain the entire score from the film. I have the 2-disc Limited Edition that was released in 2008 containing the entire score as heard in the film as well as alternate cues. Very worth tracking down!
Why so long?!
This soundtrack is one of the best of the 1990's. Why did it take so long for it's release on to I-tunes? Clearly someone found their marbles and did us some justice.
A composer I knew once said, "Most composers mature once they hit 50." But for James Newton Howard, the opposite was true. The Fugitive score, which he wrote at an age of 42, is one of his best works. With it's interesting bass lines, interesting melodies, and use of the piano, it shows the influence of his pop music days and his time in the 80's scoring Romantic Comedies. I like it much better than his later works, as he increasingly becomes more and more Zimmer-fied.
This is a great soundtrack.
