    NP: Lust, Caution - Alexandre Desplat
    It's sooooooooooo dull... but it's the least distracting score I could find to play while editing.
    -Erik-

    I dunno... I mean it's incredibly accessible and "easy" to appreciate... but if that was such a bad thing then how would John Barry be the legend he is today?

    Pretty decent stuff.

    decent?????
    SUPERB!

    I find it a bit uneven, but the good stuff in there really is frekkin glorious.

    NP: Igor, Patrick Doyle

    Same thing: a bit uneven but overall vintage Doyle. Some key moments could be isolated as some of his best stuff.

    Lust Caution is just... I don't know... maybe too simple which is why it's perfect to play now but the music itself is soooooo uninteresting... at least to me. I like simplistic scores but like with most of Desplat's music its lacking in the emotional department. It's a floater. Blah!

    NP: To Gillian On Her 37th Birthday - James Horner

    Now this is simplistic music at its best. I simply adore Horner's French Horn writing in this score. Now this score has an emotional core! Aaaaaaah... breezy and beautiful!

    NP: Uno Di Piu All'Inferno - Nico Fidenco

    A spaghetti western score I blindly picked up during SAE's sale.
    Lots of "standard" western stylings -which I like! lick - (including a very good but horribly accented main title song), but surprisingly varied and creative for the rest. Some harpsichord and flute going on. Quite softly and lyrical in places. What an interesting and happy pick. smile

  1. Interesting, while the writing itself is great, it's the only detractor from the mood for me! Maybe because it's mixed tad too loud for my tastes.

    I've never seen the movie, but visually the change in the score is like going from an intimate close-up to a vista using a smash cut.

    Well something like The Golden Compass is far more complex and rich. But less beautiful. Maybe the melodies of Lust Caution are simple, but they really work for me. I'd call them "simple", but not "simplistic."


    NP: Silver Bullet, Jay Chattaway

    I'm addicted to that theme song!

    Sorry if I've missed anything but I just can't read from page 88 to 96 wink

    I thought I'd be bursting to play some orchestral scoring after the ( mostly enjoyable ) assault of varied music I've been listening to permanently since last Wednesday but I'm just 'music'ed out'.

    I could hear film music blasting out occasionally from the site, both Superman and Raiders wafted across the site from someone's theatre or cabaret act, best of all was being in front of a PA with the theme to Christopher Young's THE FLY II blasting out louder than I'll ever hear it again in my life cool punk

    That might be true but that doesn't mean the rest of the score is any good. Lust, Caution bored me to tears and is the perfect antidote for insomnia.

    Oh, you missed out, you missed out!

    There was be a show on trampoline.
    The Hendersons were all there
    late of Pablo Fanques'fair, what a scene!
    Over men and horses hoops and garters
    and lastly through a hogshead of real fire

    Oh, and the celebrated Mr. K performed his feats last Saturday at Bishopsgate
    The Hendersons did dance and sing when Mr. Kite flew through the ring (you didn't wanna be late!)
    Messers K. and H. assured the public their production would be second to none
    And of course Henry the Horse danced the waltz!

    It was all quite magnificent.

    NP: Sainte Ange - Joseph LoDuca

    Quite dark and broody, with a rather solemn, even reverent subtext.
    It's rather interesting, and really quite good...I'm just not sure that I like it very much. Though every time I'm ready to switch it off, another interesting twist, or a bit of choir hooks my interest again.

    This one will be a multiple-listen score, clearly.
    It doesn't often happen any more that I'm not sure at first sight...

    Yeah... but then I think to myself I MUST be missing something. For instance, almost everyone was having an orgasm concerning Lust, Caution over the past couple of days so I decide that I wanted in of that. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH! sorry! Any-frickin'-who, I gave it yet another spin... my 6th complete listen... and I still don't hear ANYTHING remotely special. I should just erase it from my drive. In saying that, Desplat will always remain my ultimate fim music curiosity because there are rare occasions when he writes something striking like Coco Avant Chanel and The New Moon.

    I absolutely adore this score. One of my favourites of the 00s. An incredibly effective showcase of Newman's soaring and experimental yet ultimately very polished sounds.

    Love it! cool
