James Horner's Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan
30-Jul-2009 - FSM has released in cooperation with Rhino Entertainment and Paramount Pictures the remastering of the complete score from Dan Wallin's 1982 three-track film mixes of Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Kahn, stored in the Paramount vaults in sterling sound quality. James Horner crafted flowing, nautical-sounding melodies for Kirk and the Enterprise that recalled the spirit of Captain Horatio Hornblower, one of Gene Roddenberry's inspirations for the series. Horner contrasted sweeping, flowing themes for the heroes against shorter, warlike music for the archvillain Khan—creating dynamic and memorable battle music for the film's WWII submarine-style spaceship confrontations. But it was the film's core story of the friendship between Kirk and Spock—and the separation of that bond at the story's end—that received Horner's most heart-pulling and emotional scoring.  The 28-page CD booklet features commentary and track-by-track breakdowns including new and historical interview quotes by Horner, Meyer and others involved in the production.
