  1. I am closer to Martijn on this one. For me, 2001 and both versions of SOLARIS do FOUNTAIN better than FOUNTAIN does. wink

    NP:GI Joe (Silvestri)

    Wow... I can't believe how much I'm enjoying this score.

    It's more near to scores like ricochet and predator 2 to the headache of Van helsing, the mummy returnns or Beowulf (scores wich I enjoy but I find them excesively loud)

    "Just about close enouhg" is one of the best action tracks from Silvestri in the last 10 years.


    Finally the action score of this summer, after: hyper edited realeases ( Ice age 3, land of lost), crazy sampled chorus (Angels and demons) and albums wich runs half of the road (star trek).

    I'm really adicted to this score. It reminds me my earlier days as a score fan, with this typical Silvestri tricks.

    Alan Silvestri is somewhere in the middle of composers: with limations (David Arnold), with lack of new idead (James Horner) and the real versatiles ones (James Newton Howard)

    Played yesterday-

    Michel Cusson - Monica La Mitraille

    Nice jazz based score. It's for an action thriller I presume. Not my kind of stuff though.

    I'd be hard pressed to come up with a more possitive full of life theme than Gonna Fly Now from ROCKY.

    The Ron Jones Project
    CD: Into the Brave Night


    A few years ago on a Jones label called Emotif, he released a few CDs called "The Ron Jones Project".


    Does it have any tracks from Ducktales?



    No, all RJP CDs were original music composed for the CDs. Not based on any TV or film work. Besides, as my desciption said, it's all synth work, and "Ducktales" was orchestra.

    NP : A VIEW TO A KILL - John Barry



    An underrated Bond score IMO, damn fine Bond song, great action track and superlative dramatic score.

  4. Is that the bond with the opening ski sequence that suddenly is scored with some surfer music (I wan't to say "California Girls" maybe?)? I'm not a fan of the Duran Duran song, either. I remember seeing the first part of this on TV recently and rolling my eyes at the whole thing.

    Cripes! Roger Moore's time was well and truly up by this, his final outing as Bond. And yes, a Beach Boys track was used though I can't remember which one? ( nothing to do with Barry )

    I enjoy the film but man it's cheesy.

    Already heard it my friend? I have it but was out for work over the weekend and didn't have the chance yet! How is it like in comparison to previous Rombi scores? Can't wait!


    The main difference is that the score for Ricky doesn't have a romantic element to it. It has some tense moments and some cues that ranges from fantasy to eerie/creepy which is not characteristic of what we have heard from Rombi before. There is a cue near the end that is close to John Williams' fantasy style and is also the most energetic cue that Rombi composed so far. So there is different material to chew on here apart from the main theme which is absolutely stunning and memorable and all the superlatives you can think of. probably not a major Rombi score to get but an interesting one to add if you like his style.

    Thanks! I've heard it in the meantime and it's quite impressive to me, how he manages to come up with a beautiful main theme, no matter the genre and style of the rest of the score that accompanies the film!
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Thanks for the tip. I haven't listened to this Melbourne 2006 Cd in a while. Evocative music and also has a "fun" element to it in the third cue. Great rhythmic writing for percussion and flute.

    Now playing (since it comes after that one in my media software) is Wild Africa - Christopher Gunning

    Extremely unoriginal, but very enjoyable.

    I love the medieval songs, they are so tender and gentle....

    And what about the "seduction"? it can't be more Instinc basic-like.
