  1. Backdraft is cool, but TTRL wins hands down. Zimmer NEVER did something as fit and as emotional as that work.

    BACKDRAFT... BY A F__KING MILE!

    -Erik-


    It's by far his best "standard" score (ie the best of the ones where he's doing what he knows how to do with his eyes closed) but The Thin Red Line took him so far out of his comfort zone and yet he still nailed it perfectly. There aren't many films with Zimmer scores where I feel the film is anything but weaker for his presence, but those two are actually stronger because of it. But TTRL is such a good film, and the score plays such a key role, I say it's his best by miles.

    With you on this one Erik! Besides, I don't think that I've been able to listen to The Thin Red Line all the way through - ever. For me, The Thin Red Line is unlistenable (regardless of the composer.)

    backdraft

    -Erik-

    PS - BTW, The Thin Red Line film was, IMHO, a load of rubbish! Fell asleep in the theatre about half way through trying to stomach the pompous BS Mallack was trying to stuff down my throat! Excellent score though... it deserves its high praises but Backdraft, while yes is a comfort zone score is a bold heroic work that perfectly created a fusion between synth and symphony. Backdraft is beautifully melodic and even though very up front with it's volume it still packs an emotional wallop and is a score that I love from start to finish. I can't say the same about Zimmer's TTRL because there are parts that are so tedious that I can't get through the entire album without skipping over something.

    I cannot think of a single moment i'd want to skip, from THE THIN RED LINE, the score; that is a coherent musical work full of emotion, that flows naturally from note 1 to end, full of beauty; one that Zimmer factually seems unable to ever surpass.

    I think I'd now go with The Da Vinci Code as his most enjoyable score though I don't think it adds anything to the ( very poor ) movie. I love The Thin Red Line score but I also agree with Erik that the film has a high pretentious BS content.

    When I want something loud and thematic? Backdraft fits the bill fine.

    NP: Stardust (Ilan Eshkeri)

    I don't know why some people here just don't enjoy this score like I do. The length feels just right, and I love the loud fanfare that emerges in "Shooting Star" and "Lamia's Lair." I enjoy the movie as well, so maybe that's a contributing factor.

    Can't get enough of this-

    Bruno Nicolai - 99 Donne

    So happy with this purchase! Nicolai scores for the revenge tale of imprisoned women.
    There's a sad, requiem-like theme that's is achingly beautiful and very Italian. There are themes for revenge (a little Italian western-ish with electric guitars, trumpets and percussion), some lonely sax themes and some tension devices. And as with Italian scores of this period, the score comes with variations of these but always interesting.
    Wow! Bravo Nicolai!

    I adore this score. I jsut rewatched the film a couple of days ago, and it reminded me how good the music was.

    But alas, I'm still waiting for it to arrive. Even though I ordered it within the hour it was first announced!
    I can relate to Timmer and his Natty Gann experience! sad

    PHILIPPE ROMBI - Ricky

    What a ridiculously beautiful and infectious main theme!

    Changed to JAMES NEWTON HOWARD - Defiance

    One very overlooked recent score imo, not in the sense that it didn't get enough attention, but mostly because there are so many people around who don't think it's actually worthy of that attention.

    I really loved the Defiance score, the violin solos really give me the shivers. I'd have loved to see it get the well deserved Oscar.

    Exactly, that's a very good point. And the violin work along with the melodic development in this score is really remarkable.

  5. I´ve used both Backdraft and The Thin Red Line in RPG sessions (with quite different storylines, of course), and both worked wonders. They are great scores written for two movies which are so different from each other you just can´t compare them. The only thing the whole discussion really tells us is that Zimmer can write up fantastic stuff for very different moods and needs. To compare those scores is to compare which mood you personally enjoy. dizzy

    HANS ZIMMER - angels and demons

    A fantastic score in the movie, and on cd a pretty modern re-take on Da Vinci Code (although not superior in quality but still equally enjoyable). "Science and religion" is an exceptional example of inventive modern film scoring for this genre.

    Previously played JAMES HEWNTON HOWARD - the happening

    A brilliant modern score in all aspects, perhaps a lighter and darker on SIGNS / THE VILLAGE which also contains one of the most emotional compositions by the composer, "BE WITH YOU".
