  1. Needful Things - Patrick Doyle

    Dark, unsettling and one hell of a creative piece of work. I'd love to see how this music works in the film one day, because it is so mesmerizing on CD. Doyle from that period could do hardly wrong where I'm concerned and it's a sad fact of life he doesn't write like he did in 1993 any more. But that's so true for most composers. I just adore how the album ends, starting with the ingenious 12 minute track until the glorious End titles. Some of Doyle's strongest writing right there. punk

    NP: Angel - Philippe Rombi

    A modern day classic! Stunning score and one of the best film scores written in the past ten years! Phenomenal!

    smile Interesting. Was listening to this score just the other day, and at the end tossed it from my MP3 player because, as lovely and soft and melodic and sweet as it was, I thought it was just too murmuring for my taste.

    I'd certainly never put it in any "best of" list, leave alone that of the last decade!

    It was hands down my favorite score of 2007 and is somewhere near the middle of the pack in my Best of the 2000's list.

    And "The Truth About Ruth" is a fantastic closer! Great slow building cue where Desplat, for only a few minutes, finally comes out of his shell and lets loose! Very nice... but it still doesn't make up for the rest of the score... but it's not as bad as some others that I've heard.


    Due to the title, I can't help but imagine how that could would have worked as the climax of J A C Redford's ONE NIGHT WITH THE KING score. (Since the biblical story of Ruth climaxes with the revelation of who she really is.)

    Absolutely agree with you, it's simply stunning and certainly one of the most charming orchestral gems film music has to showcase in the last years.

    NP: The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep - James Newton Howard

    I'm a sucker for Celtic themed scores. Howard sets the tone and place right away and then blows you away with a classic action finale and fantastic end credit suite! An over-looked gem!

    -Erik-


    I overlooked it when it came out too; i found it pleasant but passable, but recently i revisited it and there's very interesting music in there indeed.


    There's a nice 45 minute album in amongst a 70 minute one. (I don't include the end credits suite... drags on a bit.)

    Apart from the really cheesy, happy-go-lucky theme that pops up from time to time in the score, I agree. (Second favourite Rombi score to A Man and His Dog.)

    He may be the most shameless plagiarist in film music history - but Christ almighty, this is seriously stirring, magnificent music.

    I haven't heard any of these, and I consider Angel his best so far. Are these similar and/or better?

    Jouyex Noel is THE THIN RED LINE influenced in some of the more dramatic war pieces, but with some added breathtakingly beautiful slow violin / piano led pieces and there's also a women's choir. Very melodic, sad at times, heroic and solemn.

    The others are very interesting, not better than ANGEL though.

    But i consider "Une hirondelle a fait le printemps" a strong contender for Rombi's best, it's utterly beautiful from note 1 to end.

    Given there's only like 10 Rombi scores around, it won't be far from the top, no matter where you put it.

    It's lovely indeed, thanks the absolutely wonderful main theme. But I don't hold it in the highest esteem as some other people. Jerry wrote much worse, but also much better scores. It's very good, but I'd never take it to an island if I could pick 20 Goldsmith scores.

    Wonderful, I love this side of Danna. It complements the movie perfectly; beautiful and quiet but longing. "See You Again" is one of the best cues of the past decade IMO.

    I think there's a time and a place to listen to a score like Angel. I find listening to it in the day time is not the best time, nor just listening to it on my iPod. I prefer to wait until the evening, put on my Sennheisers (because that's what I use and I'm better than you) perhaps just before I'm about to go to bed... it's very lovely. smile

    NP: The Ghost Writer - Alexandre Desplat
    Between this, New Moon, and Fantastic Mr. Fox, I am now officially in love with Desplat. So much so that I am looking forward to his next big score (Potter) more than the current/upcoming scores from Zimmer, Howard, or Powell. And that, for me, is about the highest praise I could possibly give!
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Fair enough, Sleeps-With-Sennheisers.
    As common opinion holds this score in so high regard, I will give it another go in more favourable circumstances.
    (Let it never be said I do not keep an open mind: I spent a whole day and a half on re-appreciate Desplat!
    Didn't work, incidentally)
