I hadn't listened to Call of the Wild before this thread, but I think it's now my favorite John Powell score.  It and Balto are both fine scores (the latter's poor mixing and inconsistent tone aside), but Homeward Bound is a masterpiece.

This, but Balto has the best single cue of any of them ("Heritage of the Wolf").

I've never listened to Balto. Is it as good as House of Sand and Fog?

No.

Yes, BALTO wins, although HOMEWARD BOUND is pretty good too.

 

I've listened to CALL OF THE WILD twice now, and I simply don't care for it.

Super glad to have all of these scores in existence (including the Scott). ;)

Silly rabbit, you’re not supposed to appreciate things here! Everything must compete!
