  1. Silvestri's Cosmos (part 1 of 4) is now out on iTunes! Fans rejoice! Innocent piano, warm strings and noble horns seem to dominate the album.

    No, a tv show. About the cosmos.

    Music to TV documentary series. I listened to it on Spotify earlier. Nothing spectacular ( yet? ) but an enjoyable listen. I'll need a second listen to make a more informed opinion.

    Lush, grand Silvestri, very melodic and typical of his style. Some electronics here and there. Can you not listen to it on Spotify?

    I think it owes a bit to Contact.

    Thanks Pete! I remember CONTACT is one of my all-time favorite Silvestri works, will definitely check this new one out.

  5. Hm. I found this one pleasant, but largely forgettable. Even his less inspired-sounding action scores of recent years seemed to have stronger highlights, or at least one or two meaty cues worth revisiting...Cosmos is just kind of vaguely nice.

    Enjoy... whilst the sun is out! smile

  7. Volume 2 of Silvestri's music for Cosmos is now available from digital outlets - and it maintains the high quality of the first volume.

    Good news. Alan, do you think it's sufficiently different from volume 1 to warrant the purchase?

    I certainly did! wink

    What I took away from the first volume was a sense of awe at the vastness of the universe, sweeping vistas, etc. There is a sense of this in the second volume, but I also hear a more homely, more personal feel to several of the tracks; these don't seem to be as grandly orchestrated. Also, there's a more variety in the orchestrations in this second volume, with more prominent use of solo instruments. And, there's a few tracks that have a propulsive edge to them that wasn't much in evidence with the first volume.

    So, I'd say "yes" there's enough variety to warrant a purchase, but there's also a definite link to the first volume for those who want "more-of-the-same" but with added variety.

  9. I agree with Alan (of the FalkirkBairn variety). It's similar, but very different from the first. A lovely central theme, but a lot more gusto throughout. I'm loving it (though... I am terribly biased where Silvestri is concerned).

    I found the first COSMOS largely disappointing. I'm curious as to how the sequel album holds up, however.
    I am extremely serious.
  10. I find Vol 2 more coherent. There's a central theme that's really carried throughout the album; more so (imho) than in vol.1. And like Alan (FkB) said, there's a lot of variation in the orchestrations, which I appreciate.

    There was some great electronica stuff in, I think, the third or fourth episode (rather short, though). Showed me that Silvestri still has the synth chops that he excelled at in the 80s.
    I am extremely serious.

    Anyone who can't dig the glorious Synclavier II/Yamaha DX7/Roland T-808 riffs of Silvestri in the 80s will automatically lose all my respect!

    (not really, but damn, it's good -- and extremely underrated!).

  12. Delta Force... such an ace score!
