    I enjoyed the movie a lot! I'll get the score later on, even though I only liked a couple of tracks from Hobbit 1. I'm hoping DOS is better with new themes. Winter is a good time for listening to Hobbit music or LOTR music. I also bought myself Doug Adams book for Christmas and I'm enjoying that a lot too!!

    "Feast of Starlight" + "The Forest River" + "Beyond The Forest" = thematic bliss!


    Also, I just realize where I've heard the "love theme" part of Tauriel's music before...Morricone!
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Wow thanks, that's nice smile. I missed you all too, that's why I'm here! And because now I have some time off during this Christmas break.

    I like the Eastern theme for Smaug a bit, I like Tauriels theme, but not so much the Tauriel warrior theme (not official theme names, just hope you know what I mean). Not sure yet what to think. But still, a score to a movie like this is a must have for me, no matter what. Regular release will do.

    Very good and thoughtful review Edmund. Well done.

    I like the Smaug score a lot but I would say I fall in-between the thoughts of yourself and Southall in my listening experience of the score.

    Amazon now has clips of Howard Shore's "Collector's Edition" releases of

    Naked Lunch

    Crash

    Dead Ringers

    I'm most excited to hear what's new in Crash followed by Dead Ringers. Not as keen with Naked Lunch. Digital versions of the albums out on 14th October.

    You are a lot more forgiving than when I listened to it. Maybe I need to really listen to it? Or find a booklet!

  7. To be honest I think I may have been a little too forgiving. I quite enjoy it when it's playing, but completely forget about it once it's finished. I didn't write that in my review. I should probably knock half a star off.

    Crappy score, one of the worst of the year, imo.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    I disagree. I think it's a fascinating, textural affair. One of the few non-LOTR scores by Shore that I've been able to enjoy properly.
    I am extremely serious.

    It's not a particularly cohesive experience on album, but I rather like the string quartet material.
  8. Have La-La Land Records hinted that Howard Shore's score for Se7en could get a proper release next year for the film's 20th anniversary?

    That would be great if it were true. The only downside is realising that it's 20 years since that film was released! shocked

    I thought your review reflects the music I heard while watching the film in the theater. Shore's "Maps to the Stars" is music of which only drops are used in the movie, mainly to underscore the fake and self-obsessed lifestyles of the tv/movie/child stars in it, the music itself felt like a parody at times. Only near the end does the score break away from that and becomes more emotional, and I do need to get the score if only for that finale.

    It's a good film and Shore's score captures and creates the atmosphere brilliantly. The film is only let down by some truly cringe worthy moments of "acting" by Brad Pitt who has improved a lot since then.

    If the Maps to the stars score aims to emit a sense of "fakeness" i'd say it does it pretty well wink

    By the way, Shore is doing the music for Jon Stewart's (yes, that's Daily Show-Stewart) directorial debut ROSEWATER, which is in cinemas soon. Quite intrigued by that (more the film thant he score, perhaps).

    Always keep a door open, D -- even if a composer has disappointed you. If there's something I've learnt in my 25 years as a film music fan, it's that.

    Yeah, i always listen to new stuff, i never reject anything prior to listening and viewing the film, just saying, as a general notion. Shore, to me, is a composer with a very inspired past, a brilliant long moment with the three now classic LOTR scores, and then caught up uninspired and confused with the ever-changing film music and movies' business and styles, and caught up in his own tremendous success with LOTR.

    Needless? for me, no, if i i judge his outcome post-LOTR. See the post above please.

  10. Suffice it to say I completely disagree with that assessment. I don't particularly want to turn this into yet another discussion of the Hobbit scores (whose lukewarm reception I continue to be completely befuddled by, but I've more or less made my peace with that...I just wish people would acknowledge the strengths those scores undeniably have even if they personally don't like them). And other than that, his career right now is pretty similar to his career pre-LOTR - quite a bit of difficult, brooding stuff with the occasional drama. I really don't see that much of a difference or drop-off in quality.
