    NP : THE BIG COUNTRY - Jerome Moross



    There's only one way to follow the sublime greatness of a score like CONAN and that's to follow it with more sublime greatness.

    Excellent observation. It's very obvious now you mention it but I must admit I hadn't noticed it before.

    NP: Sunset Boulevard - Franz Waxman
    Joel McNeely conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra


    I'm familiarizing myself with this score as the new edition will be in my hands sometime next week and will be on my show days later. I remember the score being really good but I forgot just how absolutely brilliant it really is. Such a multi-layered score. It's comedic, dramatic, exciting, romantic, etc. Everything you could ever want in a film score is in this exceptional score.

    I have no experience with the original soundtrack recording so McNeely's version is all I have but I must say that it sounds great! I can't wait to sample the new release.

    The Special Relationship - Alex D

    For me, Desplat's finest of the year. I can't stop playing it.

    Good idea, Erik. Listening to the clips it sounds so vibrant. A property that's sometimes overlooked with re-recordings.

  2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows I - Alexandre Desplat

    I'm only 4 tracks in this so far, but I'm really loving what I'm hearing. This is looking to be Desplat's magnum opus, and certainly a contender for score of the year. I haven't heard Hedwig's Theme yet, but I'm not really bothered by that. What Desplat has conceived is perfectly adequate for me.
  3. Scratch that, I heard the theme at the end of "Polyjuice Potion".

I haven't heard Hedwig's Theme yet, but I'm not really bothered by that. What Desplat has conceived is perfectly adequate for me.

    Halfway through now and I'm hearing one recurring theme, which appears in "Snape to Malfoy Manor" and "The Locket". It's sounds like a darker version of his theme for Birth.
  5. Some cues that are really standing out to me: Sky Battle, At the Burrow, Harry and Ginny, Ministry of Magic, The Locket, and Ron Leaves.

    I'm really love this dark undercurrent so far. Desplat has spent way too much time with those lightweight romances...
  6. Another cue that sounds like a twisted version of the Birth theme is Destroying the Locket. I like how the romantic strings mingle with the frenzied dissonance. It's pretty unnerving.

    I'm also loving Lovegood. It's really funky and exotic, sorta reminiscent of Thomas Newman's work for Lemony Snicket.
  7. Okay, two more cues that I'm enjoying: Captured and Tortured (with its fierce percussion) and Rescuing Hermione...

  8. One more to top it off: Farewell to Dobby.

    All in all, I'm impressed. I don't plan on seeing the movie (at least, not now), but I'm confident the score just as well in the film as it does on CD. I'm already stoked for Part II. Bravo Mr. Desplat!! biggrin

    I watched the film. Desplat's music was a little bit butchered. There's some cues of the CD which doesn't sounds in the movie, and the ones from the CD which sounds on the movie, are very different. Like Harry and Ginny, The Will, Hermione's Parents, Captured And Tortured, Rescuing Hermione, Farewell To Dobby and The Elder Wand.
  11. Yuck, that's no good...well, I'll always have the CD. Moving on...

    Searching for Bobby Fischer - James Horner

    This was the score that really developed the "Genius" theme that Horner first introduced in Sneakers one year earlier. But what really floors me is that this score was used as a temp track for A Beautiful Mind 8 years later, especially during some of the latter's deleted scenes. Amazing...

    NP : They Live - John Carpenter & Alan Howarth

    As a fan of John Carpenter the director I'm also a fan of John Carpenter the composer .
    I always loved his synth scores , they always have a 'special' atmosphere and the man
    made a few memorable themes that really stick in your mind . Good stuff ...

    It's an hommage to cinema, right? So though it's not a film score, on the other hand, it is a film score.
