AllMusic Review by

It's nice to have people approaching their jobs with enthusiasm and energy -- as is certainly the case with the Prague Philharmonic (conducted by Nic Raine and Paul Bateman) and the Crouch End Festival Chorus, whose members here seem to be having a great deal of fun with this assortment of cues and suites from movies involving disasters of one kind or another (though calling The Abyss a disaster movie might be stretching the truth somewhat). Titanic pops up again, but this is only one more indicator of how much of a warhorse James Horner's score has become within a few years. More to the point, the album, in a fine display of intentional humor, follows a suite from Dmitri Tiomkins's score for The High and the Mighty by concluding the album with a suite from Elmer Bernstein's score for Airplane! That's class.
