    I think this is the most disappointing film music news since the rejection of Goldsmith's Timeline score. Corigliano is my favourite composer and I was really looking forward to this. I wonder if maybe the score got a little too busy for the film? Let's see, I'm hoping to get a comment from Corigliano through his publisher who I spoke with and who said that he'd done a "magnificent" score for the film. Stay tuned.

    I'd add Gabriel Yared's TROY in there too.

    Well, if they'd replaced Corigliano with Tyler Bates, THAT would be bad news but it's Howard Shore so, IMO, not such bad news.


    I don't care WHO the replacement composer is... even if it was John Williams... this is still the WORST F__KING NEWS OF THE YEAR! Corigliano is an OUTSTANDING composer who has written 3 OUTSTANDING and DIVERSE film scores and I think it would have been a breath of fresh air to hear another film score by this incredibly talented man.

    Exactly my point. Shore doing it is not the downward point here but Corigliano NOT doing it.

    Point taken and as I have said earlier, I do agree that it's disappointing.

    Howard Shore Collector's Edition Vol. 1

    Editorial Reviews
    Product Description

    Howe Records is pleased to announce the inaugural release of their new Collector's Edition series from the vaults of Grammy Award-winning composer Howard Shore. Album series producer Jonathan Schultz has uncovered thousands of recordings documenting Shore's career of composing original scores, concert pieces, chamber music and songs. Volume One launches the series with a collection of unreleased recordings, some from films and many pieces that have never been heard in any form. The first four tracks are from the score to the Martin Scorsese film After Hours and the last track is from the Diane Keaton documentary Heaven. These five tracks showcase Shore as both musician and performer. These compositions are unique, jazz-influenced pieces with captivating solos for guitar and harmonica with orchestra.

    It seems very strange, but over the past few years shore has mostly (with the exception of the cronenberg films) worked on films that require more or less very little score. Take for instance the aviator, the departed, and doubt and they even ended up including more music on the CD than what has been utilized in the film. I think it has been a very low profile couple of years for mr.shore. He needs to start choosing projects on the basis of how much quality music he can contribute rather than how good a movie is.

    How many Homages did you guys notice in LOTR?
    There is a very obvious one in The Towers extended score: Track number 6 on the 3rd CD, "The breech of the deeping wall". Half way through the track there is an homage to Holst (mars).
    I think there is another on the same CD but I'm not completely certain.

    Wau, a first listen of the new score or Howard Shore and nobody seems to really care about... but one snippet of a new Zimmmer melodie and the forum goes crazy... kind of worrying...

    Not at all. Howard Shore's psychological thriller scores don't really make for very popular listening, and to be honest I'm rarely in the mood to listen to Shore's darker scores, but I love them to bits in the movies. I think he's one of the best film composers of today.

    This one sounds like an interesting one, especially those odd moments of furious action writing, and I'm looking forward to hearing it in the movie (if I can be arsed to see the movie that is) - but I'm not sure I'll be getting it on CD for now.
  1. Also, Zimmer is controversial, Shore is not. Now, I guess if he wrote Silence of the Lambs for Lord of the Rings, THEN he would be controversial. News rule: Good news is no news is also working here, I guess.

  2. Also, keep in mind that this Edge of Darkness score is going to be an Amazon "CD-R on demand" release. No-one here's going to want that sub-standard product!

    They include the soundtrack in the film marketing just to promote a CD-R release?! Damn! I really wanted this score (really love Shore's style), but I'm not buying such a sub-standard product... crazy

    I also have a lot of time for the subdued HISTORY OF VIOLENCE and the epic SOUL OF THE ULTIMATE NATION.
    I never could muster the enthusiasm to listen to THE BETRAYAL, and the very idea of the film DOUBT just bored me. (I'm sick of Oscar bait films, and this was as baity as bait could get.) Only in THE LAST MIMZY did his music genuinely annoy me, and I'll concede the degree of my annoyance exceeded the crime there.
    On balance though, he has a good body of work since LOTR I think. Generally fine films (which composers love to be connected with above all), and a range of musical approaches.

    I read on FSM that he's doing the music (and theme?) for the upcoming Winter Olympics in Canada. That's cool (literally! wink).
    I am extremely serious.

    Apparently he's credited for a game score?

    • THE LORD OF THE RINGS: CONQUEST, music by Howard Shore

    Does anyone know if it's original score or re-use of older material?

    Ok, I was a little quick there. Found the soundtrack release on Amazon, and it looks like Scorsese will use all sorts of pre-recorded music. Looks interesting, although a score by Shore would have been great... smile

    Great news. As much as I like quite a few of Shore post-Rings scores (especially The Departed) I hope it's a return to his crowd-pleasing form.
