COVER
Horner Revealed
To some he's the rightful heir to Williams and Goldsmith. To others he's a lazy plagiarist. To us, he seems like he might be going a little crazy. But you can decide for yourself, as James Horner lets it all hang out in an interview for the ages. By Jeff Bond
 
FEATURES
James Then and Now
After a two-year hiatus to recover from the exhaustion of covering this composer's career output, we've got the final installment of the James Horner Buyer's Guide. Enjoy. (Runs from Horner's 1978 to 1985 projects, plus 2001-2004 scores.) By Paul Bouthillier

With a little help from God and Mel Gibson, John Debney has met the challenge of scoring his biggest movie yet, Gibson's controversial The Passion of the Christ. By Jeff Bond
