    I'll agree with you there wink I thought that the concert arrangements was an extension of the same pile of doo-doo.

    The reasons for not listening to Black Hawk Down just get longer and longer! wink

    As you may recall, I've never been able to understand why Black Hawk Down is repeatedly cited as being one of Zimmer's best.

    No, BHD is far better than this. Have you watched the movie btw, BHD?

    This here, Outlander, sounds a like an Atli Orvarson's BABYLON A.D. / Zimmer's King Arthur ("Gods Be With You" also made me LOL wink ) & BlackHawk Down wannabe. It's not bad - if you exclude the horrendous amounts of chaotic reverb and bass with the added electronics and all, but it's not good either. How many scores like that are out there actually? Has anyone counted them? biggrin

    Black Hawk Down is one of the rare Zimmer scores where there seems to have been a real thought process put into its creation. I hated the film, but the score is excellent.

    Lovely country indeed.

    Off to some casual drink, but before I played some tracks of The Darjeeling Limited. Hilariously cool and catchy! Idnian music (Bollywood?) is awesome! (songs mixed with score, with some odd twinklings here and there). Basically, its score comes from the movie The Householder (some Indian composer wrote it). Amusing, since it really brings back that odd atmosphere from the film!

    Goldsmith made a mediocre film better - Zimmer made one worse. It's all to do with talent.

    Listen, think of a beautiful woman who doesn't need anything more than her gorgeous charm in order to captivate you with her presence.

    Now think of a not great, decent chick with Insanely large doses of make up that looks great on the outside but leaves you running for the exit next morning when you see her plain. That's an RC score.


    Classic! I don't think ANY comment on ANY film score forum can better this! punk

    Now seriously...

    NP:Ghost and the Darkness

    That's more like it. That is more what Southall meant.

    I love this score! I love the total recall rythms mixed with african vocals, it's a very dramatic use wich makes this score much more original than other African inspired scores.

    All film composers sometimes have to work on films that are not very good. You either write what you know will make it better, through trying to give the film what the rest of the filmmaking team singularly failed to do (ie Goldsmith) or you simply accentuate the ridiculousness of it all (ie Zimmer). You either know when to dial it up and when to dial it down (ie Goldsmith) or you treat every single frame of the shite film as if it's a piece of art worthy of hanging in the National Gallery next to Botticelli's Venus and Mars (ie Zimmer). You either know what you're doing (ie Goldsmith) or...

    NP: Spirited Away - Joe Hisaishi

    One of his most orchestral works for Miyazaki, and much better than Howl (both score and film). Also here are many beautiful and memorable themes, as always. And his PIANO! smile


    I liked Howl more (the film). As for the score, I don't have either one, but they kind of sounded similar while watching the films. All of his piano stuff sounds the same to me.


    Some (many?) of Hisaishi's scores, especially piano pieces, sound similar. I agree. Some say that's lack of originality and others say it's his genius voice... Well, I'm one of the latter group. His melodies simply touch my heart. But I've been listening/playing/singing his music since I was four, so I'm totally brainwashed. biggrin

    But some of his piano pieces, for example Madness ~ Flight or jazz piano from Porco Rosso, do not sound like Howl and Spirited Away. smile



    NP: PIANO STORIES II THE WIND OF LIFE - Joe Hisaishi

    Some pieces are from TV ads/programs, one is an arrangement of his film score, and others are original music.

    It's called piano stories but in many tracks other instruments (strings, woodwinds, guitars) take main parts. I love the orchestration around Hisaishi's piano.

    Asian Dream Song (Nagano Winter Paralympics theme) is a little disappointment. It's not as impressive as his later work Oriental Wind.

    Rain Garden is somehow unpleasant... maybe intentional?

    Other than that, all tracks are great! I especially love Sunday (relaxing guitar & piano), an acoustic version of Kids Return theme (really cool theme), and Highlander.

    And on top of all... Les Aventuriers is awesome! Its style is similar to Madness, but has more variety. Its five-time measure (Is it a proper English translation of the music term?) is rocking! punk

    NP:Quantum of Solace (Arnold)

    I find this score pretty, pretty interesting.

    the whole score has some king of dramatic sense all the time that really makes me be unconfortable (in a good sense of the word).

    "perla de las lunas" with the electronic touch and the Barry homenages is irresistible.

    And How I said hundreds of time "night of the opera" is one of the most original and one of the greatest pieces from Arnold ever! Anyone with me?


    Odd, Jordi, that you quote Night At The Opera as one of Arnold's most "original" pieces as the piece sounds like a mash of John Barry and Craig Armstrong to me. Still, I do agree with you that it's a fantastic track.


    havent answered why its so original Jordi?
