    Hello from your retarded creationist acquaintance wave wink
    I am listening to the exact same score, actually I've been going through it slowly for several days, enjoying the incredible quality of my 24-bit 48kHz 5.1 lossless DVD-A rip smile

    Knowing (Marco Beltrami)

    This works like a charm in the film, and is high on atmosphere, and has an interesting sound which is why I'm not turned off by it. The more suspenseful cues set the tone of the film, but the emphasis is on creating atmosphere and uneasy tension, and it's rather monotonous in nature. The final cues are worth it to give it a spin and to hold out for it. It works better in the movie IMO, which I like.


    Works good in the movie but compared to previous Beltrami efforts it's repetitive and looses interest fast, imo.

    Apparently he recognizes the existence of those of us in the audience for Desplat's score and yet outside the audience for his film beer

    It's a very listenable score, very subtle, romantic and melodic, very stand-alone. I find myself listening to it all the time lately, on the walk to work, in the bus, everywhere. Some parts are truly beautiful.

    Stand out tracks indeed but as a whole it doesn't really live up to those fine cues.

    I'm actually listening to a 90 track 2009 Compilation and I have to say that there have been a lot more impressive scores written this year than in the past 4 or 5 years. It's still not up to par with year like 1989 but there are a lot more surprises this year... especially from me concerning Desplat. I've really enjoyed two of his scores much more than I can say about most of his output post Hostage.

    If I look at my some of my favorites this year I see scores like Mao's Last Dancer, Knowing, Une Homme Et Son Chien, Coco Avant Chanel, Drag Me To Hell, Up, The Red Canvas, Battlestar Galactica, James Hannigan's Harry Potter video game scores... just to name a few. Those are some damn fine scores.

  1. Battlestar Galactica Season 4 (Bear McCreary)

    WOW!!!! This is hands down the best of all the BSG score albums. I like nearly every track, the sound is so diverse and original, even more than Season 3. This really is the culmination of 4 years of McCreary always improving on his themes, his writing, the performances. This man has shown his talent has grown exponentially and I can see a bright future for him and becoming one of the greats. While I could never hold it in the highest regard like a classic sweeping masterpiece from Williams or Horner, this is excellent scoring for a brilliant TV show that stayed away from the epic sound, and all the better for it. I've heard the first disc only and this sounds like a definite keeper and one I'll return to on a regular basis. Bear's done good with the arranging and sequencing of this album, must've been tough to make it flow as good as it does. I can only expect the Daybreak disc to sound nothing less than spectacular.

    Most-loved cues: Gaeta's Lament, The Signal, The Cult of Baltar, Farewell Apollo, Laura Runs, Gaeta's Lament (Instrumental), Kara Remembers, Diaspora Oratorio. love punk

  2. Back to the Future (song album) (Alan Silvestri & various artists)

    Anticipating the delivery of the Intrada release, I felt the sudden urge to put this on, and it's been a while. For once songs that contribute actively to the film and never feel out of place. The Huey Lewis songs are great fun and represent the youthful, innocent, and spirited soul of the film. I've always loved the ballad 'Earth Angel' (yep I'm a softie) and the guitar filled cover of 'Johnny B. Goode'. The two score cues are amazing as ever and I cannot wait to hear them in between the extra Silvestri score with upgraded sound. Please be here soon! So this a very well rounded and enjoyable song album that's 24 years old and has tons more life in it than 90 % of current 'Inspired by' crap song albums.

    Earth Angel is brilliant, because it has those strings at the end, showing Silvestri's music flowing seamlessly in the song

    I wouldn't have minded at all if Intrada placed the songs on it too, but then again, why not? wink

  4. NP: In the Electric Mist (Beltrami)

    Or rather, I've just finished playing. This is quite a strong one. A nice companion to 3:10 to Yuma and The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada. It's never as good as it is in the opening track and the two final tracks, particularly the last track, a haunting duet that feels it could have wandered out of a bayou.

    It is a shame they shortened the title though for the film (which I still haven't seen, but looks very strong). There was something that much more haunting about 'In the Electric Mist with the Confederate Dead'.

    So I'm going through my Desplat scores again, and what I don't understand is how the man seems to have just these two modi: lovely, lush theme or deadly dull drone.

    I absolutely love two-three tracks of most of his scores, with the res not even being interesting enough to properly yawn at.

    It's so frigging frustrating when you're in the mood for a consistent listen. angry
    On Girl With A Pearl Earring now, and as dull as I found the film, I have to say the score is growing on me. Certainly one of his better, most interesting efforts overall!
