    NP : THE DUELLISTS - Howard Blake



    Hmmmmmm? I'll need a few more listens to get my head around this.


    To heck with The Duellists....


    NP : THE RIDDLE OF THE SANDS - Howard Blake

    NP : THE RIDDLE OF THE SANDS - Howard Blake



    Wow! Third time I've listened to this today, fantastic score with a gorgeous 'mysterioso' theme. Along with Horner's The Journey of Natty Gann & Star Trek II this is the 3rd score I've purchased this year where I just had to play it over and over again.

    NP:Kung Fu Panda (Powell and Zimmer)

    One of my favourites scores of both composers.

    each listen you discover a new instrument into the orchestrations. Simply AMAZING!

    "sacred pool of tears" is a masterpiece in his own.


    I've been ADDICTED to this since a few weeks. Love it, one of the most fun scores from last year.


    I've been addicted to this score since it was released. It never gets boring, even after repeated listens. Such great energy, themes, and action music.
  1. Empire: Total War (Richard Beddow, Richard Birdsall, Walter Nair, Simon Ravn)

    From the guys behind Viking: Battle For Asgard, high on action cues and rousing battles, this score for the PC strategy game is just what you need if you want your scores to have an agressive sound. Fully orchestral, it features battle themes interspersed with more ambient music to provide some variety. But the emphasis is definitely on the action music. Only downside with this more than decent score, is the lack of a central theme. The music just goes all out with rhythmic force and repeating string lines during the bombastic cues, though without any sort of theme to keep it all together. I find it really enjoyable though because of the strong orchestration.

    NP : THE KNACK ( And How To Get It ) - John Barry



    A little taster right HERE for Martijn, otherwise he'll get me for not pointing out great themes to him, though this ISN'T the theme I wanted to present, I wanted to find the Main Title with the way out funky hammond organ / waltz / spooky choir, unfortunately it doesn't seem to be up on youtube!??

    Perhaps he does - or perhaps not. It was, after all, his question. I can't think of any reason that he would have to, but I'm not yet (despite my best efforts) fully versed in Spanish law.

    The Haunting - Jerry Goldsmith

    One of his better latter-day efforts, I think. Very effective in the film, very strong album.

    NP: Kingdom of Heaven ~ Harry Gregson-Williams

    A very worthy effort, in tune with the atmoshpere of the film. The chorus pieces are wonderful and the themes sometimes carry you to another world. I particularly like the Ibelien theme in the variation of its first appearance in A New World.

    Come on....Enough!

    NP:Logan's Run (Goldsmith)

    After to watch the movie, this score is more enjoyable. Not because the movie is good but I feel inside the Kitch and camp Sci Fiction the movie is.

    I don't know how "innovative" the synth effects in this score were in his time, because it sounds the average synth sound of the 60's and 70's. Can Anyone tell me if Goldsmith invented this sound or he only used it?

    it still sound a Game Boy midi, but there a great of couple of gorgeous tracks.

  3. Returner (Akihiko Matsumoto)

    The music from the fun japanese action / sci-fi film. If it weren't for the absolutely gorgeous orchestral cues that feature near the end, this would have been far less interesting. If you don't mind a variety of different musical styles, ranging from piano cues to techno beats, soft rock to ambient this could be for you, with the added treat of some stunning orchestral / choral tracks.

    Immediately followed by totally clashing in style:

    Cocoon (James Horner)

    I love this, old-school Horner at his best. I omitted the song this time and am playing in the correct order, which is a more consistent listen. The finale music 'The Chase' followed by 'The Ascension' is totally brilliant. punk

    Cocoon is a fantastic score! ( hate HATE the song, which, by the way, is nothing to do with Horner )

    I try hard to enjoy what most of the people thinks is one of Zimmer's best scores since The Thin Red line.

    It really is?

    The opening cue is great and highly enjoyable, but just because is The ring! tongue

    NP: Paycheck - John Powell

    Superb! Powell definitely has a full grasp on what a contemporary score should sound like. His mixture of electronics and symphony, IMHO, is unmatched. Easily one of the most gifted composers work in Hollywood today who is taking film music to that NEXT level!
