    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)


    Wow, who told you about this one? I love the film, but it's one of the least well known American films to come out in the last few years. I'm surprised you were listening to the score.

    Exquisite early score from Horner. Why has this not been released properly?

    NP : SUPERMAN - John Williams



    One of THE great scores and easily far and away ( hehe I said Far And Away...geddit geddit....okay okay I'll fetch it in a sec shame ) beyond any superhero score written before or since.

    it's full of piano,strings and sacharine...I'm sure :P

    I can't stand with Horner anymore...Sorry.

    NP:Star Trek First Contact (GOldsmith)

    The First Contact theme is gorgeous, but there is not enough action and too much track from Joel Goldsmith.

    So why Erik thinks is this score so good? a real mysteri...
  2. Actually...

    Testament is a largely dark synth score. One of his better ones, but I prefer In Country to that.

  3. Bangkok Dangerous (Brian Tyler)

    If you ever feel the need to hear an uninspired and totally uninteresting action score, than you can give this one a try. Not often do I feel the need to turn something off, but here I seriously need to resist myself. I'll just hear this to the end so I never have to put it on again... From CutThroat Island to this??? I seriously need a checkup crazy

    NP: Hellbound: Hellraiser II (Young)

    Simply wonderful. "Second Sight" is singlehandedly one of Young's best cues to date, without a doubt. At times I think it's more sophisticated than his Species or Grudge scores in terms of choral and orchestral layering.

    If Brian Tyler learned how to produce an album properly then I'm sure he would be much more appreciated by people. He buries decent music in amongst so much junk, he does himself no favours at all.

    Sure, I can't see Horner working with 10 other composers....He is too proud of himself. tongue

    NP:Star Trek Nemesis (GOldsmith)

    Some of his best use of synth is here, and if you thought Insurecction action music was tired, here Goldsmith was in top form!

    The Expanded score is a must have.

    And such expert scoring in the film. I'm in awe of Newman's talent as a film composer, I've always viewed him as one of the very best film composers that ever lived, along with Goldenthal. I'm not sure what other people think of that though.... I know statements like this can be blasphemous.

    Not to be blasphemous at all, but I´ve always seen Goldenthal as one of the most overrated composers ever. Ok, Alien 3 had a nice Adagio; Demolition Man was an average score, Interview with the Vampire is really good, his Batman music is good (but honestly, I can´t remember a single theme), his atmospheric works (Heat, Sphere, In Dreams) are as good IN the film as totally forgettable as a listening experience, Frida is one of these absurd Oscars given by the Academy. I won´t even elaborate on S.W.A.T. vomit

    Michael Collins, Titus and Final Fantasy are his only true gems.
