    NP: Superman IV: The Quest For Peace - Alexander Courage

    Easily the best of the Superman sequel scores. Courage adapts old and new themes perfectly while giving this fourth outing a fresh sound and not just a general rehash of the 1978 classic score. The Nuclear Man theme is a underrated gem by Williams and Courage's arrangements are sparkling! Excellent score!


    Just finished this... boy and boy or boy is this spectacular. I hope those that have to Blue Box are listening to this one just as much as the original score. Courage did an absolutly brilliant job! The final action cue is among the series' finest cues!

  1. About Superman IV Erik, I've only played it a total of two times since I got my FSM box, but I'm dying to go again soon. It's indeed a good score and I love how Courage wraps up at the end, but to me the second has always had a special place in my heart. I listen to that one more frequently.

    The rest doesn't really hold up to that level, but the theme is simply gorgeous. A man and his dog is slightly superior as a whole though.

    Very true. The way this man does melody is truly beyond me (and most other composers of his age too).

    Np: Ricochet - Alan Silvestri

    This one doesn't get a lot of attention around here. I think it is Silvestri's most aggressive dramatic score. Raw, meaty with "Blake Gets The Point" being the highlight; a raw, rhythmic action suspense cue that tests the limits of your sound system!

    NP: William The Conqueror - John Scott

    Possibly the most classically inclined of modern film composers, Scott keeps enchanting me with his flair and sense of drama. This score features a grand orchestral sound mixed with (completely anachronistic, but hey-ho) Renaissance ditties.

    I don't know how, but Scott always makes his scores sound so lush.
    Whenever I feel like classical music, but not in the mood for classical music (does that even make sense? dizzy ) I turn to one of his scores.

    NP: Baaria (Morricone)

    Strong score. It's nice to hear another romantic epic from Morricone.

    Having said that, I wouldn't mind if someone got him to tap into his eclectic musical roots again.


    You mean dissonant, unlistenable stuff?


    He has some very unusual ways of doing things some times. I often hear them and go: 'Brilliant! No one else would have thought of that.' Being predominantly romantic idiom, BAARIA doesn't really ever catch me by surprise. The best Morricone tends to have both emotion and the element of surprise.

    Oh, MISSION TO MARS. NOSTROMO. LEGEND OF 1900. RIPLEY'S GAME. These all come to mind from the last decade.

    Hmmm.......i got your point. I am not familiar with Nostromo, Legend of 1900 has a lot of good stuff and stuff that i'd program out entirely, so does Ripley's Game. Mission to Mars is pretty horrible to my ears. What different tastes do to you eh? smile His brilliance is imo in MALENA, ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA, and many other similar scores too wink

  4. I like the themes of AMERICA and MALENA, and how they work in their films, but the albums don't make for enough of a varied experience for me.

    That one is my favourite Scott score (though I haven't really heard many). Gorgeous.

    JP: CRACKS - Javier Navarrete
    Though not as immediately captivating as Pan's Labyrinth, nor as strikingly beautiful as Fireflies in the Garden, Cracks nonetheless doesn't disappoint. With rich compositions and lush orchestrations, heavily relying on the strings and Satie-like piano, this is a score with more of a Desplat like quality that deserves but also needs attention in order to fully appreciate. Something I will revisit often, for I'm sure it's a grower.
