  1. I don't have it with me here in Harrogate to listen to again. Will take another listen when I get home later in the week. Assuming Conan The Barbarian hasn't arrived by then.

  2. BTW, from listening earlier. Isn't Panu Aaltio's The Home of Dark Butterflies one of the loveliest scores around?

    i honestly don't think it's exaggeration to suggest that is one of the most charming scopes of the decade. Another one would be a man and his dog or a single man for instance.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    NP : THE FURY - John Williams



    I thought I'd give the actual film score tracks a workout tonight, there's some gorgeous material here.

    NP: Giant Robo - Masamichi Amano

    Fabulous thematic action scoring by Amano who is fast becoming one of my favorite composers.
    I'm glad I was able to purchase both 1 & 2 of Giant Robo. The others are hard to get.

    I still love his awesome score for Super Atragon.
  3. We Were Soldiers - Nick Glennie-Smith

    A lot to like here, a highly emotional score for a strong war flick. Somehow I wish I knew more about this guy's work. I'm only familiar with his contribution for The Rock and his solo-composition The Man in the Iron Mask, which I didn't really like (too much cheese). We Were Soldiers is definitely not cheesy IMHO, of course people not into the whole MV / RC sound might say otherwise. I just happen to like that sound. Of course it's no Saving Private Ryan, but it does the job.

    Absolutely love this, mesmerizing and beautiful. I also loved his THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK score, especially back when it was released i was blown away by it. WE WERE SOLDIERS is the perfect homage to THE THIN RED LINE, imo smile

    Just finished Goldsmith's superb The Explorers and have now moved onto Dave Grusin's cult classic The Goonies. I'm exploring my childhood favorites today!

    I think that the film was completely exposed as carefully contrived situations probably turned me off to the whole thing.

    NP: 8 1/2 - Nino Rota
    Brilliant stuff, and incredibly fitting for the film (in a non-logical way, somehow - how he felt that this writing style would be appropriate is amazing) and very infectious.

    Civilization V - Michael Curran & Geoff Knorr

    Another amazing orchestral videogame soundtrack, this time for the PC strategy title Civilization V. Having never played one, I can only suspect how one must feel while playing when listening to a soundtrack of this quality. Mesmerizing is one way to put it. Every two tracks are based on the country (faction) it accompanies in the game with the appropriate style for that country. There's one calm, soothing cue and the second is for the battle, more agressive. The soundtrack is another overlong 2-disc affair, but I suggest you listen to these factions to hear the best music: France, Germany, Arabia, England, Greece and Persia. And who will spot the classical inclusions like Beethoven's Ode to Joy and Holst's The Planets? Sometimes subtle, sometimes not, but a joy to listen to nevertheless.

    One of my favourite pieces for Arabia, including the ethnic instrumentation. Not uploaded by me.

    And the battle cue for England. Fantastic !!!!

    Skyline - Matthew Margeson (2010)

    If Brian Tyler on uninspired composed this, you wouldn't tell the difference. For its largest duration it has exactly the same chord processions and the same rhythmic percussive ostinati like Tyler's similar action scores.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.
  4. Rich in Love - Georges Delerue

    Just wonderful, beautiful, calming music. I love all the instrumental solos. Right now I'm listening to one of the guitar tracks.

  5. I quite like uninspired Tyler so there is much of it I enjoy.wink

    Though I'm not so keen on the sound effects-like stuff that's contained in some of the tracks.

    I'm in an 'electric' mood so I'm going for this classic next, as electronic scores go I really don't think they come any better.

    NP: Epic Themes 2 - various RCP minions

    Really fun! Mostly trailer-music-ish but a some tracks have a bit more restraint than the Immediate and TSFH stuff.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!
