    NP: Carl Davis: The World At War, Pride And Prejudice And Other Great Themes -
    Carl Davis conducts the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


    A stunning compilation of themes composed by the often forgotten Carl Davis. The album includes themes from The World At War, Pride and Prejudice and the much sought-after theme from the film Champions. A splendid album with brilliant sonics! Check it out if you can!

    NP: The Blue Max (Complete) - Jerry Goldsmith

    What. A. Score! The Blue Max has been one of my all time favorites since hearing the suite presentation on the rare Masters Film Music album Suites & Themes and once I heard the Columbia/Legacy release I was hooked!

    Now, this complete presentation is nothing short of a miracle. The score was recorded in 1966 and I'm surprised at how great it sounds. Sure, there are flutters, some tape hiss, etc but this is the best the original soundtrack recording has ever sounded.

    As for the score itself, Goldsmith didn't waste one note when writing it. From start to finish this is one exciting and incredibly well written score. The wind machine, for instance, heard during the opening theme is a master stroke. Leave it up to Goldsmith to employ such a device in a film score. The love theme is beautiful and the action material, IMHO, is up there with some of the best he ever wrote. "The Attack" will blow you away! This is one Goldsmith's finest scores and I'm so happy that I got a copy before it sold out.

    Actually, I'm rather surprised that this album didn't received a larger pressing. It's widely considered one of Goldsmith's finest scores and the with the history of limited edition Goldsmith scores going OOP fast - even at the 3000 copies level - I'm shocked that Intrada was only able to snag a 2500 copy deal.

    Anyway, I hope those that wanted this album got it! IMHO, it's a Top 5 Goldsmith score!

  1. Very glad to hear the sound is great. I'm looking forward to hearing 'The Retreat' in better sound.

    I only just missed out on it! It went way too fast. It's heartbreaking as I so dearly love this score!
    Glad you guys got it though. It's a Goldsmith classic!

    A damn shame when the real score fans are left out of what is considered to be such a very wanted piece of music. sad

    Because you can bet your money that a lot of copies went to people just wanting to sell it on ebay. crazy

    Uhmmm... I got a second copy of Innerspace as well because the first has gone missing, but that was only after it went sold-out. tongue

  3. The Golden Compass (Jamie Christopherson)

    Some selections from the videogame score, and rather nice they are too. I've never heard the film score, so I can't compare but some of the music written for the game is very good indeed, with enough lovely themes to satisfy me. I'm listening to my own playlist, to make for a much better listen than the whole soundtrack / gamerip definitely is.

    The Scarlet and the Black - Ennio Morricone

    Thanks to plindboe, I can listen to this score now. It's very good, in my opinion. There are melodic and raw parts and the latter are also very good, mostly accompanied by an organ.
    It's high time for a proper CD release!

    Happy you like it, keky!

    Not one of my favourite scores, but the tracks "Memories of Rome" and "Francesca's departure" are pure nostalgia.

    Sherlock Holmes - Hans Zimmer

    I like this score. I love the orchestration, the overall sound of it - and also the melodies. It's so much better than Angels and Demons. It's good that Zimmer finished 2009 with such a fun score.
  4. Hans Zimmer - Driving Miss Daisy

    A largely forgotten Hans Zimmer score, largely melodic and has a wonderful charm and atmosphere to it. It also wonderfully works in the movie, basically almost making the movie what it is.

    I just finished with FSM's Islands in the Stream. I think the original recording is tighter and so are the performances but I think what Intrada did with their recording was splendid as well. Anyway, it's great to hear the action music that wasn't on the Intrada release. I know can see why Goldsmith's considered this is personal favorite. He got great use out of that main theme... it's everywhere; either hinting at the theme subtlety under everything or out in the open with a straight forward presentation! A wonderful score and a wonderful release. I've now moved onto...

    NP: Tai-Pan - Maurice Jarre

    My favorite Jarre score. Some would say this is a standard Jarre effort but I getting more out of this score then I do out of any other Jarre effort including the classics like Lawrence of Arabia, Dr. Zhivago, etc.

    Coming up next... Christopher Young's The Core and Joel Goldsmith' Kull the Conqueror. I'm in an epic, in your face, louder than hell mood! It's getting me geared up for my ball hockey game tonight. wink

    I don't think it's a great score, but it was more than effective in the movie. I love how it was all strings operating in the lower register, creating a dark rumbling sense of uneasiness, and marries itself so well to the Seattle setting.

    The sound, that Hans came up with, fits the cinematography of rainy gloomy Seattle very well. And mood is one of the key aspect of the overall effectiveness of The Ring.
  7. Yes, I do believe that this is one of his most effective film scores. And the end credits is one of his career highlights.

    Reminds me that Chris Young personally paid for it to be sent out to those who ordered The Tower (first Intrada Signature Edition, back whenever it was). What a nice guy!

    Indeed, what a powerhouse action score, at parts it's massive! And in general terms, hugely entertaining.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Trying to get to know the score a little better, despite already liking a lot. If you've not heard it, do yourself a favor and check out the samples before this limited edition sells out.
