    NP: Drag Me To Hell - Christopher Young

    THIS. IS. A. GREAT. HORROR. SCORE!

    Highly , HIGHLY recommended!

    -Erik-


    Okay this I have to hear!! I was just playing The Fly II earlier and that score is just splendid in its atmospherics and use of themes, including a gorgeous main theme statement in 'Dad'. If that new score can just sound a little like that combined with his spectacular Hellraiser writing, I'm totally interested. I think 'The Uninvited' wasn't all that great. Not bad, just nothing hellraising, ahem!


    The Fly II is such a massive horror score too! Glad you're liking it, not too many people seem to be mentioning that modern classic anymore!
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    DRAG ME TO HELL - Christopher Young

    I love this! 4 minutes into "Loose Teeth" is probably one of the coolest things I've heard this year. What is making that messed up "groan" sound!? cool


    I read somewhere that it's Chris Young himself.

    Quite Delerue-ish / Barry-ish. Love it, sweeping and romantic.


    Ooh, interesting. Never heard of it. Where can this be bought?


    Maybe here?

  1. Suite #1 from Goldsmith's Legend (as edited by Justin). I must say that this is the first I've heard clips from Legend and actually considered buying the score. Most of the music I've heard from it before really turned me off from it, but Justin has selected some nice music to compile together.
  2. All the suites will have all the bits I think were good enough to hear from the score; your first judgement might prove correct.

    Anyway, I hope you all like the suites. Suite 2 in about an hour.

    Justin - Yor editing needs a bit of work. You need to find a natural progression between the two pieces you are editing or else the suites really don't hold up as stand alone piece of music... more like a collection of short cues roughly edited together. I'll upload a few of my suites for you all to listen to so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about.

    Anyway, Justin, keep practicing... I'm really interested in what you have done here.

  3. I had only two things in mind when making the edits in the suites:

    1. Does the next part play well after the first (not an jarring, abrupt change in style; continues on the same theme; sound like it "fits" with the feel and emotion of the previous piece)

    2. Could be edited together without causing a hugely noticable edit like a couple or so times in my "Eraser" suites.


    After this I will move slowly onto "Krull" (that'll be HARD to fit together)

    And then maybe ... maybe ... "The Shadow".

    Everyone is different and likes different things, of course - and if I were to edit Legend into what I consider the essential parts, it would be the whole album. One of Goldsmith's most amazing accomplishments, I think (but the one Goldsmith score that divides opinion more than any other, at a guess).

    Star Wars: A New Hope (John Williams)

    Absolutely horrible! What was Williams taking when he wrote this? The good side is it's not as horrible as his vomit-inducing 'The Empire Strikes Back' or the truly abysmal 'Return of the Jedi'!!!!!

    Bloody awful. My first bucket is already full. vomit

    The urge to stop playing this is huge !!!!!

    One of the worst scores ever !

    Rambling Rose - Elmer Bernstein

    Several of the high number of Bernstein releases in the last few years have been pretty ordinary (with exceptions, of course) but over the last few days I've been going back to the scores that made him one of my favourites, and this is one. What absolutely gorgeous, beautiful music. Nobody else wrote film music with this charm.

    Okay I listened to it though the melodic stuff is very impressive, classic Young, the ambient stuff is harder to get into... Well of course it is, it's horror rolleyes

    I just mean to say I've got to listen to it a few times to really get the scope of the thing. And on speakers, not on these MP3 in ear-plugs I've heard it through. smile But I can't say I'll find this better than the melodic shockers he's done in the past.

    WP: Kung Fu Panda - Hans Zimmer and John Powell

    After watching the (terrific) movie, I began to appreciate this one even more. The ethnic material is perfectly used, the emotional cues (especially Oogway Ascends) are lovely and the action music is spot-on. I also love Po's theme and feel it fits the character perfectly. Even the electronics are well used so they don't feel out of place. 4.5 stars from me, lovely score.

    NP: In My Sleep - Conrad Pope

    Yes, "Drive to Gwen's" is heavily influenced by Pope's work on John Williams' War of the Worlds (as well as Desplat's piano writing in quieter moments). However, there's something hypnotic about it that's distinctly original, particularly in "Main Title Sleepwalking" with the meandering piano, fluttering woodwinds and undulating strings. It's just a beautiful yet delicate and uneasy score.

    It's one of my most played scores. I love the film and the music way more than can be expressed over these forums. I hope Zimmer and Powell return for the sequel!

    NP: Drag Me To Hell - Christopher Young

    Wonderful stuff! Young at his best here!
    Great fun. Yet quite scary at times!
    And here I was thinking such exciting and thematic score music wasn't written anymore!
    Well done Mr. Young! cool
  7. Something Wicked This Way Comes (James Horner)

    Great sound and good track sequencing can make a world of difference, I'm now enjoying this a whole lot more than the unofficial release (which I hated), but it still doesn't rank as high as his other 1983 epics. The main theme is typical Horner loveliness. Not one I'll put on every week, that's for sure, but it has some good moments.

  8. NP: Lover's Prayer (McNeely)

    A personal favourite among McNeely's works. Both main themes are gorgeous evocations of a more romantic era of film music, close to the heart of Rachmaninov.

    I liked Joel McNeely score for Flipper. It is so sweet and also some of the tracks sounded like of John Williams style. Did anyone have this score?

    You know... with those direct to video Disney sequels McNeely is able to really let loose. Listening to something like Cinderella III or Tinkerbell: The Movie, I don't think he would get away with a "sound" like that THIS if he was scoring a major film. Sad yes, but at least he is working and delivering one gorgeous score after another.
