"I have the first CD. In fact, I had to buy it again because I listened to the first one so many times, it accumulated too much wear and wore out. Although the OST to Braveheart is one of the finest film scores out there and THE finest James Horner score, it did noticeably omit some tracks. For example, the cue when William Wallace arrives at his childhood home after being away for a very long time AND when Robert the Bruce notices his father peering over him and another man early on in the film. So when I saw More Music From Braveheart, I was estactic. When I listened to the whole album, I was very disappointed.When they don't include tracks complete with voice-overs (I can record parts of the film myself and duplicate this dubious and as-of-recently overused technique), they include tracks that were on the first album! They also add fluff by including bagpipe music (I love bagpipes, therefore I buy bagpipe ALBUMS) just to make the album at first glance worthy of purchase. All in all, it's the most shallow attempt at money milking I have ever seen, and I purchase Star Wars soundtracks if that gives you any reference. Why they don't just release a complete score with the complete soundtrack absolutely escapes me. I would buy it in a second just as long as it contains every piece of music from the great film."
More Music From Braveheart

"For those who loved the movie, this album does an excellent job of combining the music with note worthy speeches from the breathtaking 1995 classic. This CD contains beautiful melodies composed by the London Symphony Orchestra which recreate the mood of the original film. As an extra, this CD is packed with the memorable Scottish bagpipes and never before released songs in memory of Scottish warrior poets. Even if you have the first soundtrack, this album is a must have for all true Braveheart fans."
Music and More from Braveheart

"I think this should be called 'Music and More from Braveheart' instead. That is my only criticism. Others have written of their complaints that the bagpipe music that has been added is not from the movie. Oh, well, I love bagpipes so that didn't bother me at all. They do add to the flavor of the thing.There is dialogue from the movie, key snippets, that don't bother me, either. I loved the movie and can now enjoy the music, and soundbites, thoroughly while I surf the net and do other tasks on the computer. If you like the original soundtrack CD, you should love this one. Sometimes, more is better and that is the case here!"

"I haven't finished listening to this yet and I'll probably shelve it. The original soundtrack is THE BOMB, one of the best film scores ever, but this doesn't live up to its name of "More music from Braveheart". It seems like an ill attempt at squeezing more money out of a good thing. There are only a few unreleased tunes on this album (I counted 5 out of the 25 listed). If you want to hear the speeches over again, I suggest watching the movie instead. This was a disappointment from an otherwise exc. original movie score. Save your money and continue to listen to the first one."
