    Of course it may help I know the score (as represented on CD) so very well, having owned it for twenty years...

    I'm in the same boat as you, Martijn. I've had this CD since it originally came out - and it is one of my favourite scores. One of those scores that slaps you in the face when you're in the theatre watching the film.

    One thing that does cast a shadow on this release is how old it makes me feel. For years I've been used to the likes of FSM, Intrada, etc releasing these limited edition scores of titles that have been old (Golden Age/Silver Age), to films that were in the cinema before I was old enough to see them.

    Now they are beginning to release titles that I remember from when I was younger. Now these new Golden Age/Silver Age titles (maybe not Golden Age just yet) are the ones that are part of my life.

    I'd completely forgot that RoboCop was released back in 1987 - almost 25 years ago!! sad

    I'm listening to the complete version, I'm halfway into it but I have to tell you that I haven't met a single track so far that I would miss from the official release.

    Wait till you get to the third disc. There's about 30 minutes of worthy stuff that isn't on the official album.
  2. Trevor Rabin & Harry Gregson-Williams - Enemy of the State

    I may be the only person in the world who likes it, but, yeah, I like the themes and the technological sound used for the movie. I wonder how would Zimmer himself score it, but I don't mind him not doing this movie - he was all over his head with The Thin Red Line then (a scheduling conflict).

    I happen to really like the film, which is maybe not Crimson Tide (one of my favorite thrillers), but is still rather good and his penultimate film, before he went all crazy.

    Good work, I think. And works very well.

    Your favourite Bond score is GOLDENEYE? I can't say I blame you, not only is it the best Bond score but it's the best film score ever written too.

    NP: How to Train Your Dragon - Powell
    Ridiculous mixing!! If it wasn't for how thin and lifeless this thing sounded, it would be hands-down my favorite action/adventure score since At World's End. Why must they do this?? Some of Powell's scores have great mixes...I Am Sam, X3, etc...
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

  3. NP: Return of the King (Shore)

    This will sound very arrogant, but while listening to the last disc of the Complete Recordings (about the only disc of the recordings I do listen to), I had a vision for how the last hour of the film could have been more interesting (to me).

    The War suite -- War, The Battle Continues, Quaritch Down, Fight to the Death, A New Beginning -- is worth the price of admission alone.
  5. NP: Kakushi-ken: Oni no Tsume - Isao Tomita

    Such a beautiful score this one. Please take some time to listen to the 10-minute Overture: The Time of Dawn. As soon as the theme heard at about 2:00 starts I just want to cry!

  6. The Pelican Brief - James Horner

    Another underrated gem. I love the chase music, especially "Garage Chase."

    This is one of those scores that I began to appreciate much more after actually seeing the movie. A very good effort from Horner.

    NP: The Russia House - Jerry Goldsmith

    I love the main theme very much. I have always preferred Goldsmith's melodic side to his action side and this theme is simply wonderful. But the jazzy suspense music is also great.

    Tomita did a film score? uhm

    Well, it's not really surprising, I guess. I have no sound at the moment, but I'll give this a try later on.
    I find Tomita's early eighties synthesizer recordings groundbreaking, but I never thought much of his own compositions (Space Walk; The Bermuda Triangle), which seemed lumbering and outdated in sound.

    Hmmm....interesting....whenever I feel a bit out of sorts I tend to retreat into my comfort zone of listening. And I find that that is -of all things- my Western playlist! play that one more often than any other playlist.

    NP: Quantum of Solace - David Arnold.

    Very flowing album. David's action has certainly evolved from the swashbuckling bombast of the his early Stargate/ID4 mold, not that I think that it's a good thing, mind you. I enjoy Arnold's work very much so. QOS just make me wonder about how his score for the new Narnia will sound like.

    I certainly hope he will someday return to that swashbuckling sound of Stargate/ID4! He was much more interesting back then...
