  1. Hopefully it’s a big success and Disney sees that lots of people would buy in park music!

  2. Does anyone know if there is someplace to listen to the Pandora soundscape (meaning the ambient nature noises/sound effects track that plays in Pandora)? It a lot of fun to sit/wander around Pandora and just listen to all the wonderful ambient atmospheric sounds that Disney has created for this land.

    Further…I’ve been there a few times now and I swear the soundscape changes. The first time back in 2017 I heard and remember a distinct animal call at a certain area. But in 2018 I listened for quite some time and I couldn’t hear it anywhere.

  3. Well.. I finally got around to listening to this! A few thoughts: first off, James Horner fans… don’t get TOO excited about this. For you loving fans there are really only 2 tracks of the entire album that are (apparently) pure Horner: tracks 5 and 6, “Magic of the Land” and “Spirits of Mo’ara”, and they are WONDERFUL! According to WDW News Today this score is composed both by James Horner and Simon Franglen. This Disney posting basically breaks down who composed each track, and Horner is listed as the sole composer for those 2 tracks only. Of the tracks that they are BOTH credited for, 7, 8 and 9 are actually very VERY nice! I have not heard of Franglen until now, but those three tracks do sound VERY ‘Horner”. For the remainder of the tracks: 1 – 4 are forgettable, with the opening track for the ‘Ride Through’ being RUINED by the inclusion of the ride’s sound effects. The last 4 tracks (the “pongu pongu” stuff – both composers are credited) are just AWFUL! Would Horner have really imagined music like this?? I don’t know,.. but maybe within the context of the Park Attraction (haven’t visited yet) it “works”. To sum it up: the worth of this all comes down to tracks 5-9.. ignore the rest. Would love to know how you all feel about this release.
