  Filmtracks: Braveheart (James Horner)
It is, without a doubt, excellent music, but before you detail how A Beautiful Mind, Enemy at the Gates, and other later scores by Horner exhibit his "borrowing" habits, you have to cite Braveheart as the grand triumph of re-use philosophy.
Due to the growing demand for Braveheart music as the cult following erupted, a second volume of music for the film was released by the same label in 1997; it would mark the beginning of a marketing habit by labels to release "More Music from..." in the years to come.
If you want snippets of dialogue and music from the film on a CD, then you can do what thousands of others are doing by connecting their DVD players and computer hard drives.

Thanks to the group, musical honesty did make something of a comeback during the year, though it was still in the minority.
In World Music, the trend was definitely Celtic, with Enya, Loreena McKennitt and the Chieftains selling a decent number of recordings during the year.

 Music For Piano(s), 1951-1995
This recording traverses the last forty-five years of Earle Brown's creative work, chronologically encompassing this twelve-tone "Three Pieces" and "Perspectives", his revolutionary "Folio" pieces, "25 Pages" (music's first truly open-form work), the multi-timbral "Four Systems" and "Corroboree", and the world premiere of his "Summer Suite '95", written especially for David Arden.
The music was at the same time vigorous and lyrical, audacious and beautiful, evocative and provocative.
And if this appears to be a play of opposites, it is not surprising, since the man who created the music is no different.

 The Cult: Pure Cult: the Singles 1984-1995 - PopMatters Music Review
Nissan is currently hawking a car with the intro to "She Sells Sanctuary" in the background, one of those commercials that makes you scramble for the remote to test your little TV speaker (and further evidence that those of us who know the song are possibly old enough to afford a brand new Nissan).
Truly, the Cult's music for many teens in the US functioned just as the work of Boston, Journey or Foreigner did 10 years earlier: music to play loud enough in your Camaro to make the other people at Sonic look at you.
For others, the Cult's music is a striking mixture of the banal and the spiritual that sounds great.

 Eleven Shadows Music Reviews: 1995
What is considered by many to be the "newer school" of ambient music allows considerably more groove and various elements within its genre than the "older school" of ambient, such as Eno's classic "On Land" music.
Like the best ambient music, new or old, this is music that is interesting on different levels, capable of rewarding intensive listening or functioning as aural wallpaper.
The music is mostly acoustic, warm, and, well, the aural equivalent of a favorite old shoe.

 1995
Although it was the textural timbre of Takemitsu's chamber works that give me the initial impulse for BLOODS OF DUST, I've sought to explore further the ear-challenging multi-layering music of Charles Ives, Gil Evans' emotional quality, the dominant seventh structures in Messiaen's music and a simplicity I found in Satie's Messe des Pauvres.
I am also trying to place Bill Frisell where his audacity and the piquant spareness of his music and humour have space to mingle at his discretion.
BLOODS OF DUST was commissioned by Birmingham Jazz with funds from Biringham City Council as part of Sounds Like Birmingham 1992 and West Midlands Arts, and premiered by BCMG in the Series 1991/2, which was the music winner of the Prudential Awards for the Arts 1993.

 Neile's Top Music of 1995
Mari Boine is Sami (used to be called Lapp) and the way it as affected her music seems fundamental to its overall sound--yet it's contemporary too.
It may not be my favourite of their albums (I have a fondness for Shimmer that will be hard to shake) but it's a wonderful, worthy album.
Yeah, they're still weird and off-the-wall musically, lyrically, and Rosie can't quite truly sing but put it all together and Pram is one of the most interesting experimental-ish bands around.
