    Well, I guess I could rank some of my all-time favorites. Out of the 30+ (which outpaces even all the Thomas Newman scores I've listened to), I'd consider A Beautiful Mind, Avatar, House of Sand and Fog, Apollo 13, and Titanic as the top of the pack.


    Just wait until you discover Horner's early discography. Boy, is that list ever going to change.

    When you discover Horner's earlier discography you will know when he composed every theme of his later discography. tongue tongue tongue

    It's kinda fun hearing themes from previous works. Horner might be the most environmentally conscious composer working today because he recycles so much of his music...

    NP: Avatar - James Horner (for the 1,000,000,000th time...)

    All Horner fans should seek out the COMPLETE recording. I don't even mind how derivative it all is, the "War" music is just phenomenal; it's like a mini-suite: "War", "The Battle Continues", "Quaritch Down", "Fight to the Death", and "A New Beginning."

    NP:The last Samurai (Hans Zimmer)

    What I like most from this score is Zimmer leaves aside his over dramatic strings, and uses more woodwinds. It's fresh air! (Except for the boring "small measure of peace)

    I can say a lot of great moments in this score.

    From the powerful "taken" to oriental flavour of the samurai theme played by koto and percusion in " Spectrec in the fog". From the wild percusion of "to know my enemy" to the epic ending of "idilly's End". From the peaceful version of the red warrior theme in the last half of "A hard teacher" to the navajo "chants" in Red Warrior.

    All of it recorded in a crystally way.

    " A way of life" is one of the most beautiful tracks from Zimmer ever.

    I forgot the piece's name, but it's the next-to-last track and in the movie, it plays when [spoiler]Ken Watanabe's character dies[/spoiler] and the strings nearly brought me to tears, it was so lovely.

    Awwww. sad Jeez, Steven. I was going to watch that film tonight.
    Bought the 320 dollar special platinum edition, with special collectible Geisha girl and all the sushi you can eat.
    Lights turned low. Sake heated up.
    It was gonna be a really special night.

    Now it's all ruined. sad

  4. BSG: The Plan & Razor (Bear McCreary)

    A bit monotonous, not nearly as interesting or diverse as the real meat of BSG, which is still S2, S3 and S4 D1. But Apocalypse has a great rocking feel to it. At least those cues it's featured in let me stay awake. punk

    it's the second half of "way of the sword". it beggins with a orchestrally epic Zimmer addagio (wich is a variation of samurai's theme) and then continues with this low strings that Zimmer uses to descrive heaven/ death /redemption.

    It's one of the few times that Zimmer copies note by note one of his themes (the other time is in the first 2 minutes of Hello beastie)

    "To Know My Enemy" I LOVE this percusive stuff , it's like beyond Rangoon with real instruments! And then this synthetised version of Samurai's theme with this clanging effect. punk punk punk

    I have my doubts about what is highlight of this score : "A way of life", " a hard teacher" , "to know my enemy" or "idilly's End" dizzy
  5. Aliens - James Horner

    Now that I've finished the score, I can honestly say there was a lot of nothing in it. But when the good stuff came, Oh My God... cheesy cheesy cheesy

    Aliens... a lot of nothing? Are you mad? IMHO, it's a top Horner score and one of the finest written! Superb atmosphere, full throttle action, inventive orchestrations,... what else could one want?

    I can see where he's coming from though. Lots of 'atmospheric' creepy cues which may not be to everyone's taste.

    One of those scores that I love, but I can empathise with those who don't enjoy it quite so much - particularly the expanded varese album. (Though Kevin clearly enjoys the not-so-atmospheric bits. smile)

    I always appreciated the original Goldsmith Aliens score and especially since i bought it on vinyl, i don't think i enjoy another score of the alien installment as much.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    I'm going to give it a second whirl, because I like suspense a lot, but my first impression was that it was about 60% atmosphere, 40% action.

    In my opinion, Horner's atmospheric music in Aliens has rarely been bettered in film music. It's that good!

    What I was miffed with was the use of the words "a lot of nothing." I can understand someone not liking the score but saying Aliens is "a lot of nothing" is not true at all. Unlike something like Avatar, Aliens is a score that took much thought and creativity to write.
