    NP: Perfume: Story of a Murderer (Tykwer/Heil/Klimek)

    So beautiful. I never knew the guys who were responsible for electronic scores for films such as Land of the Dead and Run Lola Run were capable of producing such an elegant, awe-inspiring and yet delicate score. Even if the the orchestration and conductor Simon Rattle are more responsible for the end product, it's simply a beautiful and well-performed score nonetheless.


    I love it. I also like a portion of their dark electronic ambience and especially the dark techno of RUN LOLA RUN but nothing they've ever written, even after it, comes close to the grandeur of THE PERFUME. I think it's a perfect score and a very coherent musical work that got tremendously overlooked and / or underestimated by some people for reasons i cannot understand. The only work by a member of the team i can think of and which comes close in terms of fragile beauty and refinery (although a different style, more Arvo Part-like) is Tom Tykwer's HEAVEN

    Not much of a battle though is it? Putting the class of JG's Mummy up against Silvestri's is like putting Ricky Hatton up against Woody Allen wink

    True. So true.

    I like Silvestri's score, it takes a lot skill to produce something like that. But Goldsmith's gave The Mummy the perfect sound. For me, it was as integral to the movie as Williams' score for Raiders was.

    Silvestri's score was more of a swashbuckler, and certainly suited the film... but it lacked the power and awe of Goldsmith's music IMO. Goldsmith's score was EPIC, Silvestri's was more, hmm, adventurous maybe? (Although 'epic' and 'adventurous' can easily apply to both scores.)

    The Mist - Mark Isham

    I loved the movie and the soundtrack is very synthy & atmospheric except for the last track called 'The Vicious Blues' . As a stand alone listening experience it didn't do much for me . I'll give it a few more listens , maybe it will grow on me ... ;o) This release is also very short , just around 30 minutes of music ...

    It is quite similar in style to the former scores, if that helps answering your question, plus a lot bigger sometimes. I really, really enjoy what I´m hearing.

    But not Goldsmith awe. Silvestri score does have awe, of course, but I much prefer Goldsmith's awe. He gets a greater effect with less dense orchestrations. That's what I love about Goldsmith's action music as well, he was able to create so much excitement without resorting to hitting every instrument in the orchestra with a mallet.

    I think Silvestri's score matched Goldsmith's and at times took it one step further while at the same time I think that Goldsmith did a few things better than Silvestri's. They are two different scores stylistically but both hit a home run in the action adventure genre.

    That sounds very right to me. There is stuff in both scores which makes me goosebump.
