  1. I second most of the above (maybe not SILK though), and I'd add WUTHERING HEIGHTS.

    NP: The Golden Compass (Desplat)

    A masterful, and unique, modern score.

    Also today: the beautiful Blizzard (McKenzie)

    NP : THE SHELTERING SKY - Ryuichi Sakamoto



    Beautiful lush exotic sounding score, I like it a lot!


    I've not heard a great deal of Sakamoto but have enjoyed almost everything I have heard. What would be your top recommendations?

    I interrumped my listening by a promo realease from the most craziest composer ever...

    punk

    ok. it's not a promo, So the sound is awful.

    But, Wow! Zimmer doing his most generic anthem ever! punk punk punk

    Luckly I like BHD loops too

    PS: Now that we had orchestral score for games , comes Zimmer and "ruins" the whole thing again.Ahahahaa. He is my hero!

    Listened to two fantastic albums this morning:

    Le Voyage en ballon - Jean Prodromidés
    I bought this album on the basis of the reviews and the sound clips and I didn't regret it! It's wonderful, playful, melodic music all around. I highly recommend it!

    The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - James Horner
    One of my favorites from last year. That main title theme is addictive and it has probably the best dramatic track by Horner, "Strange New Clothes". It's unbelievable how effective that track is, how Horner builds up the tension until the climax. Hats off!

    NP:Modern Warfare (zimmer)

    Wow...when Zimmer does a bad score, it really does a horrible one.

    How I said, he has to be focused in Sherlock Holmes and divorced women

    It's the first time in his whole career that I can't remember a melody in a Zimmer "score".

    Video game scores seem to have been divided into two camps. The good camp the classic, intensely melodic, intenselytraditional-film-score-inspired works like Lair, the Giacchino scores, etc. Then there's the dark, gritty, rhythm-dominated, melody-less scores you get for games like this. I don't like this trend, of course, I wish they were all like the first kind
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Is there a soundtrack for this then or is it just the website rip? I haven't listened to it yet, but considering even Jordi isn't enjoying it I don't think I will. sad

    There's no soundtrack yet, only a compilation of game rip tracks (the sound quality is awful). The score's just generic RC music IMO. Pass.

    It's a shit in your face. We all know when Zimmer didn't pay attention to some project, and this is one of the cases. What is terrible here, is Zimmer even tried to came up with a decent main theme.

    I never could think a 45 minutes realease full of Anthems, tribal elements and electric guitars could be so boring comming from Zimmer.

    Not only it's not comparable to medal of Honor, it's not comparable even to gears of gar 2.

    NP Star Trek Michael Giacchhino

    Believe it or not, this was my first Star Trek movie ever, as a movie I mean. I liked it so much that I will get the DVD when it comes out very soon. Entertaining score.

    I hope you are right.

    NP:Quantum of Solace

    Addicted again to this score.

    I love the barry moments in "somebody wants to kill you" and "la perla de las Lunas".

    Though, arguably, I'd say Night At The Opera is the most Barryeque moment in the score!?

    Roque Baños pulls a John Powell! shocked
    Very quirky instrumentation in infectious latin American rhythms.
    There's some odd Spanish dialogue throughout the tracks, but I'm not too bothered. It all adds to the fun. And this score is a LOT of fun!

    How is it?


    A mostly piano driven score, nothing really groundbreaking but enjoyable. The good thing is that it's very restraint but doesn't sound like a cheap synth tv score.

    NP: Summer of '42 - Michel Legrand

    shocked

    Starts quiet and melodically but then there are some pretty enthusiastic cues (Summer Song, The Dance). Didn't know it won the Oscar in 1972.

    Another great theme from Legrand.

    Doesn't this album also contain Picasso Summer? There's hardly any score to Summer of 42.
