10. The Perfect Storm
The Perfect Storm's score bore many of the classic traits of a James Horner score. Having achieved phenomenal success with Titanic, Horner returned to another perilous expedition at sea, which this time told the true story of the crew of the Andrea Gail that got caught in the Perfect Storm of 1991. But instead of the lilting celtic instruments and the power ballads that defined Horner's work on Titanic, Horner included the distinctly modern sound of a chugging electric guitar in to the mix, which when combined with the more calming effect of the acoustic guitar, gave the music real warmth.
