    Saw the latest trailer of the new upcoming HP movie yesterday. The music was standard trailer stuff but the end contained a new brassy statement of Hedwig's theme I liked. Perhaps Hooper's stuff in this one is better after all tongue

    But I seriously want JW back for the final movie. If not JW, then JNH!


    I didn't like the trailer music at all, I think it is from Two Steps from Hell, they really tried to force the theme in there
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh

    Listening to this one again after such a long time, I'm now not sure which is my favourite Potter score. Overall this has probably got more of that old school Williams magic than any of the other scores, but then again the third score has some amazing new themes!? Ah well, who cares. They're all awesome.


    It's my LEAST favorite Williams Potter score. And my God did Williams over score this picture.

    Agreed on both counts. Sitting in the cinema, I was really irritated by the overbearing music. Prefer it on CD, but I still rank it behind his other two. (But well ahead of the other composers'.)

  3. Batman Returns - Danny Elfman

    This album is okay, IMO. I always enjoy the Batman theme whenever it pops up, but that's not very often, and there are only a couple time when it's really let loose. This is far less enjoyable for me than the other Elfman CD I just got, Sommersby. That's excellent stuff. This one is not bad, it's just not that good either (IMO, IMO, IMO for all you elfmaniacs out there).

    Maybe I should have said I love the music. You could lose about 15 minutes easily from the album.

  5. NP: Meet Joe Black (Thomas Newman)

    Haven't played this in years. Wonderful.

    BUT... not having played it in years, there was no way I would have noticed the obvious temp track lift before. 'Yes' and 'Question' were clearly written to fill the void left by a version of Arvo Part's much-temped 'Fratres'. (Probably 'Fratres for woodwinds' or 'Fratres for Eight Cellos'.)

    You aren't alone Christopher.

    I can take or leave Elfman's Batman scores, I just don't care for that style of his music ( I believe I'm in the minority here ), SOMMERSBY on the other hand is brilliant and is one of my favourite scores.

    I like Elfman's Batman scores (especially the first one). But I prefer Shirley Walker's take on it.
    Both for The Animated Series and Mask Of The Phantasm.
    In fact I think Phantasm is a huge and wonderful piece of work!
    I'm quite surprised there aren't more comments from people praising this score here!

    I love that score. On my list of favorites it is currently #12. I was just reading Southall's review for Snow Falling on Cedars. He said that score was also clearly influenced by Avro Part. Who is this guy? I'd never heard of him before, but if his music is like tracks you mentioned I guess I need to check it out!

    Lately I don't have enough time to explore new scores I haven't heard. So I mostly play my "old friend" scores... my absolute favorites. So this is one of them...


    NP: Driving Miss Daisy live recording (from The Wings Of A Film) - Hans Zimmer

    I bought this album about 4 years ago. I just wanted to get the Lion King tracks (for the collector's sake wink), and wanted to know what this Zimmer guy had written other than his animated works.

    And then... wow! I completely fell in love with this track. What a catchy, happy tune! Anytime I feel sad, or just tired, or depressed, this music always make me smile. Throughout the 4 years as an undergraduate student in Tokyo, away from home, this Zimmer score has been playing an important role in my life.


    ...sorry, I'm a bit too sentimental today! biggrin Anyway, I love this music, so much fun to listen! smile

    Yes, 'Evacuation' from SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS is also based on 'Fratres', although in that case, it's 'Fratres for strings and percussion'.

    This is a video set to 'Fratres for cello and piano', the version of the piece which appeared in THERE WILL BE BLOOD.

    NP: LOST VIA DOMUS - Michael Giacchino

    A testament to his skill as Giacchino manages to channel the show without using a single theme from it. If you know the show's score well this is quite a good laugh as you can tell what each piece is trying to be. cool

    The Twins Effect II (Tommy Wei)

    Who knows this one huh? It came with the score to the first movie and I could've done without it. Because the first one has its moments of gothic splendour and choral beauty, its vastly superior to this one. There's an addictive, but simplistic main theme and here and there a playful secondary theme pops up. That's the good side, the bad side is: the recording is horrible and the orchestra not much better, with too much reverb and flat sounding action / heroic cues. When the choir sets in it's even worse. If they had used the LSO for this this could've turned out rather decent.

    The action stuff is no doubt the best material on the CD, sadly there's a lot of fun stuff unreleasd.
  9. Christopher Young - The Uninvited

    Listening to it while reading a Stephen King novel. Quite cool. The theme is great.

    I wanted to hear this ever since you first announced it so it's purely your recommendation. Thanks Alan. Thalan.

  10. Had to listen to something brilliant to counteract the dreadfulness of my previous listening.

    The Secret of NIMH (Jerry The Master)

    Finally bought this a little more expensive than usual after having a CDR of it lying around for many years. I'm glad I did because it's worth every penny. I am now enjoying it more than ever before. Or how good music can just get better with time, Jerry made sure his scores would last for decades, if not centuries. This features all the usual tricks from that fantastic period when everything Goldsmith touched turned into gold. First class themes, brutal brass performances, powerful choir and goosebump moments from start to finish.

    I'M HAPPY. smile
