    NP: Antony & Cleopatra - John Scott


    John Scott's greatest work, IMO. (Has anything else really been so good?)

    I agree. He wrote other really remarkable scores though (that none of the films deserved on the other hand): "The North Star", "The Shooting Party", "Shogun Mayeda", "King of the Wind",....but obviously his best work IS Antony and Cleopatra.

  1. Hmm, I didn't like Greystoke so much, but King Kong Lives is very good.

    DRACULA - JOHN WILLIAMS

    Great score, indeed! but not satisfied with sound quality of this album. I am expecting re-release or complete score of this album with good sound quality.

    A TALE OF VICTOR NAVORSKI - THE TERMINAL by JOHN WILLIAMS

    This is one of my favorite tracks of John Williams. This is really great comedy cue ever written by Maestro. Now, i am listening to this track for third time, i decided to replay this track once again. AWESOME!

    Apollo 13 - James Horner

    Spectacularly good. "Dark Side of the Moon" must be one of Horner's most beautiful pieces. The going up / coming down set pieces are incredible. And the end title piece is wonderful. Oh yes, this one's great.

    The HD595s? They're fookin awesome, especially for the price (I even got them at a reduced £87 price). I bought a small headphone amp as well to connect to my laptop (as I won't be able to use the hi-fi I have at home when I got back to uni) and they sound amazing.
  2. A question about the Sennheiser HD595: are they recommended for late night film viewing? I have a DD5.1 decoder for headphones and I can connect two of those. I've been looking for a second high-quality headphone. Would this provide sufficient power for film purposes?

    I should say so. As they're an open design, they're far more suited to movie watching than closed headphones since -depending on the amp setting- you can get them to sound very spacious. Powerful mid-range, which is particularly good for acoustic/orchestral music, plus the bass certainly isn't lacking.

    Yes, the HD595s. I bought them about two years ago (150 €) after a long research with a friend. We bought two of them finally, and we are so happy with the purchase. Indeed, the sound is amazing, perfect for music and films / tv shows.

    NP: Seven Years In Tibet - John Williams
    It's not bad. Not bad at all...but it remind me too much of other Williams scores I like better, specifically Angela's Ashes). So every time I spin this one, i wonder why I dodn'ty simply put on another score.

    Because it has the most magnificent theme! WHAT a fantastic piece. I seldom can pass by that first track and not wanting to play it again.

    I 100% agree with Bregt, a magnificent theme but I do find the whole CD a bit of a chore.

    Agreed. That's why I just added the theme to my Best Of Williams playlist and removed the rest of the score.
