    NP: The Mummy - Jerry Goldsmith

    One amazing ethnic and action score! A winner!! punk punk


    Or how he always maintained that sparkle of creativity right up until the end, I wonder if he were still alive, would he have accepted to do The Mummy 3, and would it have been as mindblowing as the original. My guess is one big YES SIRREE punk


    My heart says yes, my brain says no. It would be nice to think it would have been, but The Mummy was his last truly great score IMO, and with a film as bad as The Mummy 3 and his decline in creativeness during the new millennium, something tells me it wouldn't have been as good as The Mummy.

    More importantly, who cares? I feel blessed to be able to listen to so much of the great music this genius produced in his wonderful career!

    NP: Murder in the First (Christopher Young)

    Finally got to own it, after having it on CDR for many years. this is one gorgeous score, I don't know if Young ever composed something like this again, but it sure shows his remarkable talent for writing a deep emotional work, I remember seeing the film and just loving the score from the first viewing... It has that quality to it that glues you to the screen and enhances the story and characters it supports. Highly recommended and one of Young's best.


    Indeed; i think it's pretty unique among his other scores.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    After watching the DVD of She my respect for this score has doubled! cool


    I've still yet to get this.

    Are you familiar with James Bernard's score Atham?


    It's an excellent score Atham with a gorgeous yet ethereal / sinister theme for "she" and a superb Roman fanfare....it's actually amongst a few select scores I remember from when I "wasn't" a score fan as a child, this score scared me!

    It was a 1966 Hammer re-make starring a stunning looking Ursula Andress. Great score though I can't compare it to the Steiner as I've never heard it.

    A Powel overdose?

    NP: Now, Voyager - The Classic Film Music Of Max Steiner (by The National Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Charles Gerhardt)

    Gerhardt has ever been and shall ever be the primal wind beneath the wings of classic film score rerecordings. Not only has he done so MUCH, he has done it so WELL!
    Kong never sounded more alien and menacing, Bette Davis never sadder, the Light Brigade never more gallant.

    It's not only absolutely fantastic music -and it really is, for all the general kidding about Steiner, he so knew how to weave a melody, and it's so clear how much he influenced the likes of Newman and Rozsa-, but it is also SO impeccably performed. The phrases "lush" and "Romantic" seem to take on a lustre of their own in light of these recordings.

    I *love* these albums.

    Honestly, there are no compilation albums like the Gerhardt ones.
    They're a class apart.

  5. NP: "Music and Cinema: Michel Legrand" - Michel Legrand

    I got the Yentl bug the other day and I hunted out this CD that features suites from 4 Legrand titles, including a 14-minute suite from Yentl.

    The suites are for harp and orchestra and feature music from Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, Summer of '42, Yentl and The Go-Between.

    I'm enjoying the Yentl suite but I've really taken to the music from The Go-Between - a score I have not come across before.

    NP: Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas - Harry Gregson-Williams

    I was expected less comedic version of this score for Prince Caspian, combined with tender part of the first Narnia score. But it didn't happen (mostly because of the film's darker nature).

    I also expected another Sinbad-ish adventurous score from Harry on Voyage Of The Dawn Trader (because it was supposed to be a film about a voyage!!), but Mr. Pattertwig won't return to Narnia sadly (at least for me).

    So then I started expecting something brilliant form a composer who I'm not familiar with, but has very good reputation around here. But alas it might not happen because of today's depressed economy sad


    Anyway, Sinbad is really fun score! Much more enjoyable than the film itself.
