    NP: PoTC: Curse Of The Black Pearl - Klaus Badelt, Hans Zimmer and co.

    The second and third scores are my favourites, but this one is a damn fun listen too! cool
  1. The Lost World (John Williams)

    This is what I consider one of the last true big action scores by the maestro, after 1997 his action writing has changed towards the more rhythmic, where in this one it still is the old-school Raiders style Williams, which is all right by me. The new themes are as strong as the Jurassic Park ones. If the first one had all the wonder and beauty, this one has all the excitement and fun. punk

    Love the album, but I absolutely loathe the packaging, which is taking dust somewhere and rightly so.

  2. Final Fantasy: Spirits Within - Goldenthal

    First listen. This is huge. I've never really heard any score that gets quite so big as this one. I'm really looking forward to the third and fourth listen of this one, as I feel like I've only scratched the surface the first time through. Good stuff!

    Actually I agree there. That last action cue is fantastic, but the second half of it is from early on in the film if I remember correctly?

    NP K2 Hans Zimmer

    An engaging and mostly synths score with some very good Pete Haycock guitar lines, some thundering drums and some beautiful ethnic moments by Richard Harvey. It also includes one of my favorite score cue for cello. :Goosebumps: moment


    At last! Someone else plays this score.

    K2 is one of my favourites scores by Zimmer. A lot of the ethnic stuff was used in later Zimmer scores (gladiator, Prince of Egypt).

    The mix of synth and Orchestra is one of his most interesting and the recording, creating a feeling of Echo and Deep, it's perfect for reacreate the landscapes of a mountain.

    If only the theme was more memorable....But still one of his bests!


    So that makes at least two!

    Yeah, the ethnic stuff is so good and The Lion King too. Almost identical melody line there.

    No memorable theme? True but at least we get to do some air guitar wink


    NP Ricky Philippe Rombi

    This man has an unbelievable knack to come up with "perfect" themes and the same thing can be said of his orchestrations in the opening cue.

    I'm getting the same feeling I had when I first spun the Star Wars Anthology CD's and the DCC release of Raiders of the Lost Ark! It all makes me feel like a kid again!

    Listening to these scores I can imagine just how much fun they must had writing them!!!

    Indeed, it's maybe one of the last scores that will be remembered for years to come, and which was released relatively recently.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    What's that like, D? The only music I've heard from it was Arnold playing some early demos to demonstrate how unlike-music some parts of it were!

    I am happy for you.

    Personally, though, I first saw that movie when I was like eleven, and I was so freaked out by that exact scene that it made me hate the entire trilogy for the rest of my life. I haven't the slightest idea why, people always act shocked that I hate the BttF trilogy. I think it was all the eighties-ness, subliminally reminding me of traumatic events from my childhood that I have no memory of rolleyes biggrin
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    A less-known, very pleasant score by Morricone from 2005. It is very Italianish in sound and orchestration and very melodic throughout. I love it!

    NP : INTO THIN AIR : DEATH ON EVEREST - Lee Holdridge



    Stunning score! What a shame it's for such a dire made for TV movie and yet, Holdridge gives this 110%. So many talentless hacks in film scoring these days and yet a giant talent like Holdridge is stuck in TV land, there is no justice slant

    NP: Independence Day ~ David Arnold

    The End Credits cue alone is one of the best (if not the best) pieces of music I've ever heard for this genre. It's massive, epic, heroic, dramatic and a has one of those "grand finale" moments which always makes me wonder how it'd feel like to conduct such a piece, live, in a huge concert.

    Same here! That finale never fails to get me air conducting. punk
