    I will play : Spirit: stallion of Cimarron (Zimmer)

    Great tunes. too synthetic and simplistic.

    I know Zimmer tried to be original, and how he said " He looked for a weird sound because this Horse is like an Alien in a new world" but in my opinion he failed.


    Where did he say that? (Just curious)

    As I said before I don't think less synthetic and more complex score would fit in the film because of those simple Bryan Adams songs. (But if they could arrange BA songs more orchestral then score could have been more orchestral...)

    The only composer who's ever written anything good while at either studio is Zimmer, so neither. A couple of others have done it after they left (most notably Powell of course).

    Some of the animation scores are OK (certainly including Chicken Run). I forgot about those. Twister isn't very good.

    A View to a Kill - John Barry

    Not one of his finest Bond hours, but it's got some good action music in there and the title theme makes a surprisingly nice love theme.



    I've always loved AVTAK, particularly the moody stuff, however you do get the feeling Barry is getting tired of the franchise until Dalton took over and Barry did his brilliant swansong for The Living Daylights.

    Disagree completely. It's one Mancina's finest works. Excellent main theme, great low chorus for the tornado's themselves and driving action music! Really well done!

    Wow, A lot of interviews about this score at his time....I don't know where. But I think in the DVD or ir Cannes interviews.

    NP:Spirited Away

    The movie is a masterpiece.

    And this score is perfect for a sunny day.

    Love it too;

    Older MV days are indeed far better than the impersonal electronic junk we get nowadays from the Djawadis of the world. And Badelt with Harry Gregson Williams seem to be going the down-way since long now.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Jordi,

    i am not familiar with lots of Hisaishi's action material. I was under the impression he didn't much of those scores you're seeking? I might be wrong, but i always go to Hisaishi for melody and orchestral elegance. For what you're looking for, Giacchino and the older Beltrami should do it wink

    I recall some good action writing in Princess Mononoke and Castle in the sky.

    It's not even funny. (well, I laugh with "leave no man behind" moment thought)

    It's mediocre, bland, uninspired.... Boring.

    The Batman Begins moments are just annoying.

    Well, I think it's great! A great play on CD and it really enhances the film.

    At the end of "Gunna'rs raid" . The same distorsioned version of Leave no man behind from Syncrothone.

    NP:Episode I: Panthom Menace Complete (Williams)

    I have never heard this score in his complete form!!!! Amazing how many superb cues was missed from the realeased Album.

    It has nothing to envy to Return of the Jedi!

    Having played it while I was driving a red pick-up truck during a storm at high speeds (no, really), I can assure you I think Twister is much better than "OK". biggrin

    NP:star Trek Insurrection (Goldsmith)

    It seems I'm in a terrible mood for this score.

    Why Goldsmith uses more the "us marshals" motif instead the splendid "drones attack?

    Why Goldsmith underuses Baku's theme instead the secondary love theme ( Sweet and lovely , thought) ?

    anyway, a very entertaining album and bootleg. Mixing very well the 2 sides of Goldsmith.

    I like whatever few Lee Dong Jun scores that I have. What do you think is a good price for 2009 Lost Memories?
  1. NP: Dragonball: Evolution (Brian Tyler)

    So far it sounds fun, but man, this is every Tyler score revisited

    The choir work seems extracted from Lost Memories (actually I had to check what score I was listening to), there are brass lines that are exactly the same and the action tracks are curiously similar.

  2. Played earlier: Titus (Elliot Goldenthal)

    Some noteworthy stuff, especially at the beginning an end, with some weird and wacky music stuck in the middle. I appreciate its diversity though, with Goldenthal essentially using every trick in his book and still sounding fresh enough. But the more melodic cues are great. An overall fine album, just not equalling his Final Fantasy music.

    Playing now: Hellbound: Hellraiser II (Christopher Young)

    This essentially sounds like it was co-written by Horner, because the eerie strings and some of the Horner trademarks make an appearance here, much to my delight. However Young manages to create an unsettling musical atmosphere with the incredibly insane 'Hall of Mirrors', which sounds nothing like the massive and stunningly gorgeous choral cues. In short this is how terror should be scored, not like the uninspired crap that passes for music these days.

    More like co-written by Goldsmith. Check out Second Sight Seance with Rebirth from Poltergeist.
