    The Buccaneer - Elmer Bernstein

    Wow! shocked Great, lyrical score, with clear Ten Commandments overtones.
    How come this one went under the radar? This is GREAT stuff and extremely enjoyable in an amost Golden Age kinda way (and I know why: there are many Steiner-esque echoes due to the use of phrases from popular public domain marches and ditties).
    I'm enjoying the heck out of this!

    I think the first score works brilliantly in the film but poorly on CD. The second is the complete opposite.

    I LOVE both. Though as albums, I'm with Anthony; I tend to prefer The Lost World.

    Whether that's what Anthony is implying (and incidentally if he is, is something I vehemently disagree with), then it is a perfectly logical happenstance.

    For example, Zimmer is the King of bad score/good album. Mission Impossible II is a notable example.

    No, but that's because the themes (or rather motifs) on the second one as an album (though not in the first film) work way better as part of the first film as represented on the second album, though not as themes, but rather theme-like motifs. Especially the first one (album, not film), though the case could be made those are themes, rather than the second one (album, from the fist film. Not the second film. Those motifs sucked. Though only in the film.)

    Am I the only one oddly turned on at the moment?
    Anyone? No? Oh, just me then...

    Twilight Zone: The Movie Jerry Goldsmith

    An instant fix of Goldsmith's more creative side. (And this is certainly one of his most creative scores.)

  1. NP: Valley of Flowers (Cyril Morin), following Avalon (Kenji Kawai)

    Both are worth a hearing. Flowers is a bit of a disappointment when compared to Morin's work for the same director in Samsara, but isn't bad nonetheless. Avalon has some lovely ambient tracks.

  2. NP: The Aviator (Howard Shore)

    I think this is my favourite Howard Shore score since the LOTR trilogy, much as I like Eastern Promises, The Departed, Soul of the Ultimate Nation and History of Violence.

    And one of the composer´s best (if not THE best) cues: Voyage to Avalon (Orchestral Version). Great music.

    Lovely isn't it? Sadly, unsurprisingly overlooked.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.
  4. Harry Potter & The Order of the Phoenix (James Hannigan)

    It's a creative melding pot of all that's good about film music, yet it's not written for a film, but rather the game based on the film... The writing's very inspired and creative, the themes are brilliant and memorable, the action cues energetic and awesome. And I don't have the comparison to make with the Hooper film version, having never heard it, but I know about the negative opinions and all that. But this is as close as you're ever gonna get to Williams' entries. There's much to be adored here. smile
