    Ah, good point. cool


    Jumper John Powell

    Probably his weakest score this year, and I don't think this one has many fans... but I still like it. Quite a lot actually. smile

    Not quite as striking as JOSHUA, but still fairly good. I listened to it in between a lot of music for animated films this week, so I'm not sure if that has made it seem better or worse than it is. The nice part of me says - 'I can hear Nico Muhly here, which is great'. The less nice part of me says - 'I can hear Nico Muhly here, but is it that different from The Human Stain?' On balance, one of the better drama scores of the year - it's his distinctive orchestrations, familiar from Joshua, which make the difference.

    NP: Batman: The Animated Series (Various)

    This is actually fantastic music for a TV show. Particularly for a syndicated animated show that ran for years, as opposed to a miniseries.

    NP: Men Don't Leave - Thomas Newman

    A gorgeous little synthesiser dominated score which sadly hasn't had an official release. Along with Josh And S.A.M., this is one of my favourite pre-Shawshank Newman works.

    cool

    Horton by a mile!

    NP: The Spirit - David Newman

    First listen... what a killer main title cue! Hints of Elfman's Batman, film noir jazz, harmonica, low Goldsmith like brass rumbles, massive orchestra... fun so far.

    Seven Years in Tibet - John Williams

    Great score but the opening (which is also the closing) theme is a KILLER! The cello solo performance passage blows me away.

    Half way through and I really like what I hear. Delightful orchestrations, playful with a few epic powerhouse cues, film noir is all over this... I'm really looking forward to how this one ends.

    EDIT - The score didn't reach the heights I thought it would. After such a grand beginning it kinda just whimpers away. Oh well... still there's some fine writing in the score and if you like a mix of film noir and western then this might be up your alley!

    To put it another way... Hancock is a couple of degrees better than Bolt... which is a few more degrees better than Horton. IMHO!

    Hancock is excellent as well. Bolt is great too but I think Powell out did himself with the eclectic and highly entertaining Horton.

    Np: Largo Winch - Alexandre Desplat

    I thought I'd try this one again and it still failed to capture my attention with the exception of the four fantastic tracks that close out the score. Finally, some life and punchy action material that isn't just back beat and swirling strings.

  5. John Barry - Dances with Wolves

    Amazing score. I am listening to the latest, 2004, edition. Great themes, orchestrations, just a great score. I would have done without Fire Dance on the CD, but still it's a masterpiece.

    If you've seen Bolt you'll change your opinion. I have been raving about Horton all year and I changed my mind in under an hour!

    I think this is the first CD I bought simply based on excellent reviews from the various websites, and I wasn't disappointed smile

    Superb! And what a brilliant idea it was to create a 14 minute suite right off the top combining all the major character themes into one fantastic concert piece! This is TV scores at its best!
