    THE ACTION WRITTING IS POWELL COMING BACK TO HIS OLD DAYS!!! beer beer beer beer


    Yes, and unsurprisingly it's successful when it's complex but organised. Not like the shoddy "the louder we play the better" days of X-men.

    The action music in X3 is phenomenal. Organized chaos is what I call it and it fits the images of an all out mutant war to perfection!

    The action cues in XIII are indeed very good, it's the rest that is nothing special.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Well, it's mostly action any way. But I think the whole thing is great! Again, it was my favorite score of 2006.

    I hope we get another score like that from Powell. It only added to his versatile repertoire, it never took away the sort of Powell most prefer... as is evident from his astounding output last year. I'm not quite sure why people are so anti-X-men?

    Personally I think X-Men is one of his most impressive scores, and Pheonix's music is a great achievement.

    NP: Hancock - John Powell

    John Powell had an amazing year. I enjoy everyone of his 2008 scores, and while Hancock isn't my favorite overall, it is still pretty awesome. And those lost few tracks. WOW shocked

    When you only have one or two scores from last year they don't seem like anything special, but when you listen to all SIX you realise he must have been busting his ass off.* punk

    *I don't really understand what that means, but it sounds cool.

    The Beautiful Country - Zbigniew Preisner

    I received this album last week and since my first listen I've been unable to get those heartfelt melodies out of my head so I just keep returning to them.

    You'd be surprised what I do agree with actually! Generally, when someone has a positive opinion on a score I've heard, chances are I'll agree. I'm a bit of a pessimist in real life, but when it comes to scores, I'm as faithful and crazy about them as a Texan is about country and western and Jebus.

    Also, I'm listening to X-Men III complete. Because the official album is too short.

    NP: Lesbian Vampire Killers - Debbie Wiseman

    First listen...

    Don't let the title fool you... this is a massive, epic, Gothic, symphonic score performed by the Royal Philharmonic backed by the Crouch End Festival Chorus! So far so good!!!

    I enjoyed this one. The album's probably a bit too long - ditching a few tracks would produce a much more enjoyable experience for me - but otherwise I liked it a lot.

    Battle Beyond The Stars James Horner

    Am I right in thinking Mr. Horner would have been 27 when he composed this? That's only 6 years older than me! shocked
  1. CutThroat Island (John Debney)

    We seriously need something like this composed again. The score is a true action/adventure masterpiece. It's one of the reasons I like the movie a lot more than most people.

    NP: Billy Connolly's Musical Tour of Scotland - Various

    A collection of traditional songs and tunes that went with the BBC TV documentary series Billy Connolly's World Tour of Scotland. Featuring vocals from Billy Connolly and Ralph McTell it's a nice relaxing 50 minutes-worth of music.

    I think that's right!? He still wasn't even 30 when he did the gobsmacking BRAINSTORM shocked There was a maturity to Horner's "youthful" music that todays up and comers can only dream of.

  2. NP: Saints and Soldiers (J Bateman and Bart Hendrickson)

    Soft elegant war score, so far nothing loudly or action wise, but the small moments do remind me of Horner at times (perhaps meant to be)
