    Seriously? Lust, caution is perhaps his best score to date. Have you even watched the movie?

    I actually want to see the movie just to hear the score...that's what I did for Girl with a Pearl Earring.
  2. War of the Worlds - John Williams

    I don't think I'll ever hear a track that radiates such chaos and savagery as much as "The Ferry Scene".
  3. "Toccata and Dreamscapes"... Elliot Goldenthal?

    NP: Ashes of Time (various)

    The score moves me greatly, largely for being the music of the fine film.

    One of the most LOUDLY MIXED CDs I possess. I always have to turn the volume down when tracks from this CD play on a random-shuffle playlist.

    JOHN BARRY - golden seal, on vinyl, thanks to Timmer.

    Gorgeous. I just love Barry. I can listen to this stuff all the time, especially heart-driven and dramatic string-driven passages like "goodbye" that closes the album. smile

    Fallen Trailer Music Justin Boggan

    Truly astounding music from one of film music's rising stars. The grace and nuance that Boggan blesses his listeners with will surely impress even the most pessimistic of music fans. So distinct in his expression, so singular a voice, Justin Boggan once again shows us that music can lift the soul.

    Give this man a blockbuster!

    More importantly, it totally puts Hans Zimmer's scores to shame. Just imagine Prince Of Egypt with this stunning music!

    BRIAN TYLER - the killing room

    An overlooked score imo. Very mature, brooding and dark. There's some particularly well-written and effective music in here.

    I can see this score has a lot of fans. Just trying to work up to your level so help me out: does this score have an actual theme or motif I may have missed? At least a few moments of melodic lines? It does strike me as very mature and it's GOT to be effective in the movie, but, just like Law Abiding Citizen, I find it so unattractive. There's nothing I can latch to. Just like Howard Shore's cerebral work (Se7en, Silence of the Lambs).


    NP: U-571
    Richard Marvin's great work. I appreciate it even more now that I've seen the movie.

    No, it doesn't. But good music can also live without themes or melodies, it's just a matter of taste. And it's a tough listen for most, this kind of dark, dissonant music but in this case it's also blend with some truly mesmerizing string lines.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.
  5. I've heard The Killing Room and I can't grasp the attraction of it - give me something's that true Tyler. Something like Timeline. punk

    BTW, Se7en, Silence of The Lambs. "Nothing to latch on to"!! shocked

    Se7en is just one big motif! wink

    Well, see, the thing is I actually DO appreciate Se7en and Silence of the Lambs. I just don't think other composers should try doing Shore. The'll cook up something efficient that serves the movie (and in the end, that's the name of the game, I agree) but I just find it so hard to consider Tyler's dark side worth my money on CD.

    I agree, I'd like him to stick to Timeline, Eagle Eye, Partition and Annapolis!

    Having studied Goldsmith doesn't keep Bruce Broughton from sleeping at night. Why should it bother Marvin?

    Broughton's The Presidio is pure Goldsmith, every note.

    It also happens to be one of hist best, in my opinion! Nothing like emulating a master to score big points!

    That's my point. It's standard fare for Goldsmith's standards, but it's a pretty dang high accomplishment for an average little-known composer like Marvin to rise to that level.

    Yeah... but at least Broughton used Goldsmith's style to create his own unique music. Marvin aped Air Force One without even trying to make it sound different.

    It's sooooooooooo dull... but it's the least distracting score I could find to play while editing.

    There's more to U-571 than being a shameless rip. Apart from the main theme and some of the action motifs, there is definitely more.

    Hey if anyone is willing to mimic Jerry, who are we to question that decision... especially since the man has deceased, a return to that sound would be very welcome once in a while.



    CutThroat Island - John Debney

    This album starts and ends with some of the most awesome film music ever composed. LEGENDARY, BREATHTAKING, FOOKING BRILLIANT. punk

    What a year 1995 was... were the planets aligned in a special way or something that year? cheesy
