    The more effective a simple tune is just proves how much natural talent the composer has. Anyone can come up with a simple tune, but it takes a special kind of composer to come up with the perfect simple tune. (Jaws anyone?)


    Or Desplat and Rombi, on a different level but still on the same subject-matter; for the gifted, simplicity many times carries real beauty.

    Honestly, if it hadn´t been scored by Debney I wouldn´t have bothered: as predictable and childish as possible, but if you turn on your feel good button, you may enjoy it.

    John Debney's scoring it, of course it's not.

    Actually what makes the movie any good is Debney and his score.

    Mm, quite. I wouldn't say it 'eclipses' everything he's written since Godzilla, I do think scores like The Musketeer, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace show a lot creativity too. But yes, very good score... one that I'm surprised you like, Timmer? This pleases Steven. wink

    NP: The Mummy - Jerry Goldsmith

    My first listen. cool
  2. Listening to the new Varese Club releases and a couple of comments so far:

    Lure of The Wilderness - Franz Waxman
    This is going to be another challenging listen for me - I've always found it quite difficult to get into the majority of Waxman's scores I have listened to. And the whole process isn't made any easier by the organisation of the three-dozen cues being arranged into seven 7+ minute suites. Personally, I would have preferred that the cues had been left separated and no gaps between cues.

    Hanover Street - John Barry
    Gorgeous music from Barry! I'm a big fan of the romance of Somewhere In Time and this score here reminds me very much of it: recurring (lovely) theme.

    Nightwing - Henry Mancini
    I'd not come across this score at all before this (nor the movie). Although Mancini is more well known for his more catchy output I definitely prefer him in this more dramatic/sombre mood.

  3. NP: L'Idée - Arthur Honegger

    This Naxos re-recording comes as a 24-minute suite of the complete score. If I remember correctly this score (from 1934?) was one of the earliest examples of the use of the Ondes Martenot in a film score.

  4. A bunch of cues from "The Thorn Birds"
    Henry Mancini


    What a great score. A myster this hasnt' sold out, yet that recent Varese Club did.

    NP: The Prince of Egypt - Hans Zimmer

    It just absolutely FLOORS me that this score or Goldsmith's Mulan didn't win the Musical or Comedy Score Oscar in 1998. Two of the very best animated scores ever written and The Prince of Egypt is easily one of the Zimmer's finest achievements. And how "The Chariot Race" didn't make it onto the official CD release is yet another mystery.

    Anyway, when Zimmer's inspired he can really crank out some breathtaking and original material! This score is a masterpiece. Brilliant! 5 stars!

    I really hope it gets an official expanded release someday!
  5. NP: The Davinci Code (Zimmer)

    I think the second half of the score definitely picks up, however it remains for me something of a mystery that this one was as acclaimed as it was. 'Poisoned Chalice' is gorgeous.

    If Hans went for pure orchestral more and reduced the synths and electronics a lot of his works would've been much better!

    Played:

    Antz - Gregson-Williams & Powell
    It is one of those soundtracks that is pure fun to listen to from start to finish. A really enjoyable one! I haven't been able to find such fun animation score ever since (no, Kung-Fu Panda is not that good for me...)

    NP:X-men 3 (powell)

    When the action music is not there, the score goes down. But This score is still a kick ass!!!!

    Phoneix theme (wich im surprised is not played in the concerts with the x3 cue) is really one of powells great achievements.

    I still remember the first time i heard bathroom titles: NA na naaaaaaaaa naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa punk (the only real memorable super hero theme since Elfman's Batman)

    Great follow up score to Barry's The Ipcress File....and 100% different. Love it, great orchestrations augmented with Ondes Martonot and a main theme to die for with a killer piano arpeggio....totally lush cool
