  1. 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.


    Agreed 100% on "The Thin Red Line", by far my favourite Zimmer score, I never tire of hearing it. I think the entire disc is terrific, but the first 4 tracks are just sublime. The film is also one of my favourites, just as mesmerizing as the score. Was lucky enough to go the Solomons for work last year, it was a very special trip for me almost entirely due to my love of this film and score and I had this album playing on constant rotation while I was out there.

    You have been relatively unprolific in your posting recently, so I'm pleased to see that it was because you were saving yourself for this special one.

  5. About the whole The Thin Red Line vs. Backdraft debate : TTRL is good, very good, but Backdraft is better. But you can't compare the two scores. One was written for a anti-war film, the other for a heroic firefighter movie. They couldn't be more different from each other. But Backdraft wins, if I count in the emotional feedback I get from the score. I'm just a sucker for epic heroic scores.

    Proof that maestro Williams can tackle any genre or country-related music style. He so successfully combined his own with the Japanese style. I must have to say though, after 'The Chairman's Waltz' the album drags a little, but it ends beautifully. Gorgeous performances and superb themes all around. There's much to love here.

    You are absolutely right. This score is true masterpiece by Maestro.

    HOUSES OF HEALING - LOTR: THE RETURN OF THE KING (COMPLETE RECORDINGS)

    This is one of my favorite track from LOTR. It has very soft choir, solo voice(Liv Tyler) and very melodious too.

    Yeap! I'm doing a cd for my travel to scotland, and this is one of the tracks i put in the cd (in the "relax music", theres another "wake up msic" with a lot from An Everlasting piece, Far and Awar and Waterhorse).

    There are 2 kind of music in LOTR trilogy :

    1-the boring wagnerian underscore, the noisy and annoying action stuff.
    2-then the memorable themes and the new age and gorgeous chorus composition.

    One day i have to make my own compilation of the second type , Because I always remember the first type and I never listen these scores.

    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".


    ... and helps make the film even MORE hokey!

    Fair album length but the presentation is rather poor, including some more humdrum cues while some good fun action material is left out. The crappy techno remix was unnecessary and could easily have been replaced by some more score. But nevertheless I enjoy this album a lot. The Kraken is a real guilty pleasure, and cues like Dinner Is Served, Jack Sparrow and Wheel Of Fortune are great.

    I love this score and how it works in the film. I also enjoyed the film, but it seemed to get bad reviews...
  10. J.N.H.'s "The Package", and Silvestri's "Eraser" are two scores I did not like, but at the same time there were little bits in them that I felt were too nice to simply pass up, so with both -- as I pointed out on the board before -- I edited out the bits and re-arranged them best I could into suites.

    The results:
    "The Package":

    Yesterday I finished chooosing which parts of Goldsmith's "Legend" to cut out and re-arrange, so that'll be in the works soon. For now I am off to disc 2 of Horner's "Krull" (and finding very little to rip out).

    Very little to rip out of the score for suites. It's just that overrated and overblown
