    NP: Legend - Jerry Goldsmith

    A brilliant score that takes you on a wondrous journey through fantasy land! IMHO, this is one of Goldsmith most challenging and creative works. It's like nothing I've ever heard before. The album has an easy going flow that leads to two truly magnificent epic cues that only Goldsmith could pull off. I love the songs ("My True Love's Eyes" is such a tender piece) and I love the synths (this score wouldn't be as good without them) It's a real shame that Ridley Scott treated this score so poorly.

    Completly agree. it really captures a sense of fantasy that very few scores, if not any score, has ever done.

    The synths works really great in the overture creating a really mysterious effect. The rest, you know, i don't like it but at least you notice how challenging this score was for Goldsmith.

    Legend perhaps is not my most enjoyable Goldsmith score, but for sure It's one of the greates achivements in the movie music history and a great piece of art.

    Man, I didn't want Legend to end... sad So, let's play something from around that same era.

    NP: Lionheart - Jerry Goldsmith

    I have all three albums from this film... the two separate volumes of music and then the condensed single CD release. I'm currently playing a specially arranged film order version of the score sequences from tracks from the Vol 1 and Vol 2 releases.

    I have words for Lionheart too tongue

    It's my less favourite of Goldsmith epic scores. Not because for the synth, but because the joyful of some cues, the themes (except for the King Richard) and the action composition (wich was still too 70's for my ears).

    Of course, It's still Goldsmith doing epic!!!

    NP:Final Destination 3d (tyler)


    It's like listening nothing. I mean, you are hearing something, but one time finished nothing remains in your head, even not a headache.
  2. For some reason, telemarketers don't like listening to loud funky music when they call. Go figure. tongue

    Though I think it's a superb score as regards the film I find it wears out it's welcome on CD, a fascinating listen mostly, rather than an enjoyable listen.

    Almost 160 minutes of lush Rózsa scores. Ye Gods. I haven't even finished playing #1, but it already sounds the same, with the different scores blending into each other quite smoothly. sleep

    Probably a controversial opinion, but one with which I agree. I absolutely adore Goldenthal but for whatever reason have never quite been able to get into Alien 3 as I can most of his other scores.

    Not sure if you liked it or not?!

    What is interesting about that release is most of the scores represented didn't have a soundtrack release at the time. Now, most do!

    IMHO, The MGM Rozsa set is superb and great for anyone who has yet to experience the brilliance of Rozsa's music.

    I actually saw the film on it's release, complete with Goldsmith's score, the film is a visual treat if not very good, I was transported out of the film as soon as I heard a cue from Psycho II rolleyes

    Despite a European release retaining Jerry's score, everytime this has been shown on TV it's been with Tangerine Dream score slant

    Except for the odd synth blimp ( a conversation done to death now ) I love every track on this expanded album.

    Oh, I don't knock Rózsa as one of the best film composers there ever have been, Erik. It's simply that, apart from (say) El Cid or King of Kings, I never really warm up to his lushly orchestrated style and/or harmonic language. For me, it's too interchangeable (yes, even Ben-Hur).

    There's the long-standing quip about Rózsa that he often did very thorough research before starting writing basically the same score over and over. I know that's too much of a generalisation, but it goes in the direction of how I feel about MR scores.

    That said, I like King of Kings very much and positively adore El Cid.

    Satisfies my need for Goldsmith action scoring (and the added bonus of McNeely's action scoring). Give me this over [the brilliant] Total Recall any day.

    that's because his atonal stuff here is stronger / louder than I've heard yet in other scores
    still, fits the movie like a glove

    I concur.

    N.p. JOHN WILLIAMS - memoirs of a Geisha.

    A heartfelt modern gem, led by incredibly beautiful cello soli singing such a theme only Williams and few other composers are able to deliver.
