    The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - James Horner

    Jimbo, Jimbo... get off your lazy arse and score more films. (Especially ones like this.) You used to do one every week or so.


    I'm glad he his dedicating so much time to Avatar. I wish more composers would follow suit.

    -Erik-


    If that's the case, then I'm delighted. I had just assumed he was taking a long break.

    With Goldsmith and Bernstein gone, Barry retired and Williams all-but-retired... Horner's the senior guy in my eyes. Above all the rest. I don't want him to fade away too.

    Really want a CD quality version badly..


    Aren't the iTunes downloads iTunes plus? That's 256k AAC which is pretty much CD quality anyway. Unless you have super human hearing you CAN'T distinguish the difference between a 256K AAC file from an uncompressed FLAC or WAV file unless you throw it into a wav editor and LOOK at the two files.

    I want scores as CD forms because I'm too lazy to plug my iBook into my speakers, especially when I'm napping in lazy afternoon. wink
    (No kidding it's really one of the reasons why I want a CD release. Why should we start up computers just to listen to music?!)

    IF? It's the only sure thing wink But seriously, i don't think he gives a rats' ass; he's been doing it for so many years now I am sure he doesn't even notice it; it's be SO good for everyone else if they did the same too wink

    Windtalkers - James Horner

    Nothing special, pretty generic stuff. There are good moments in almost every track, but they are only moments. Except for the last track I cannot name one single track that I would call great. Horner can do a lot better than this. It's one of those rare CDs where I liked the music more at my first listen. usually it's the other way around.

    ARMAND AMAR - home

    Melancholic, with some beautifully captivating ethnic vocal work, esp. during the stunning opening track. The rest is standard Amar territory, on the Philip Glass side of things; very emotional overall.

    NICO MUHLY - the reader

    Fragile and ethereal in places, this makes for a very mature and somewhat depressing listen, esp. if you've watched the movie too. An impressive break-through for a promising composer.

    I didn't find it engaging in or away from the film. There were points in the movie where I found it rather distracting.

    I can't recall because I saw the film back in December but I do recall both my wife and I mentioning in places that the score just didn't work. There were a couple of lengthy sequences were I wish there was no score at all.

    Well, i'll give you credit on the fact that some of the woodwind lines tend to be too long and tiring at places. It's where he carries his minimalistic takings in a very persistent way that tends to be heavy.

    well it is weaker but functional

    the only thing that bothers the shit out of me, where's the one moment I loved in the film? Well it doesn't appear to be on the CD at all, even though the track is on it

    You mean a track titled in a way that send to that very scene, contains different music than the scene itself in the movie?

    no, the last track on the disc "I rise, you fall" doesn't contain the music which was heard in the scene in the movie, despite it being that very same scene. It seems (like in some other scores) they started that track by deleting material that came before it

    And it is that material I loved during the movie
