    Stevens Five-O scores are such an accomplished work. There is no way Tyler can match it! And these modern twist scores are so bland and uninteresting. No soul, no heart.

    Sad that it took his death to prompt me to listen to this outstanding collection.


    Adrian Johnston's is also excellent!

    Yeah, but he's not dead yet. wink

    'Testament of Youth' is one of my favourites from that album, James.
    When it comes to writing music for small ensembles for TV, Burgon was one of the masters. I hesitate to refer to a certain recent 6 season American TV show, but there are times when it seems like everyone thinks that ability to work with a small ensemble was something it took that composer to do well first.

    HARRY GREGSON WILLIAMS - prince of persia

    One of the best scores of the year. Colorful, grand, thematic, properly middle eastern colored (as in non just boring atmosphere but with actual themes) and elegant, one of my most played this year.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    It's alright, but Knight And Day has gotten played much more than this already.

    Knight and Day indeed has surprising staying power. It's more than just "another Powell action score."

    I didn't find anything remarkable about Knight and Day. Sounded like a standard Powell actioner to me.

  2. Great Composers: Georges Delerue.

    I'm currently playing the suite from CRIMES OF THE HEART on the 2nd disc. It's quite a long suite, and generally of very high quality. This sounds like it would be a Delerue album worth having for reasons other than just the main theme.

    I just love this score......where is this man anyway?

    JOHN MURPHY - kick ass

    A very pleasant surprise. As i said last night in the recent viewing topic, i loved how he combined his "sunshine" "28 days / weeks later" material with symphonic writing and a grand, dramatic theme. Very impressed by this and i would urge anyone who is happy that Rahman seems to be replacing him in the Danny Boyle collaborations to give a listen to this first smile

    I am 99% sure the "grand, dramatic theme" is from Jackman. Based on the track listings on the promo I have which specify who worked on what track, and also based on familiarity with Jackman's previous works, it has his sound.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    I found this at a local library:

    NP: The Last Emperor - Ryuichi Sakamoto & David Byrne

    Though I had heard the fantastic two tracks (The Theme suite and Rain (I Want A Divorce)) from Sakamoto's compilation albums, now I'm impressed by all of Sakamoto's tracks on this album. In addition to those two tracks, I especially love Where is Armo?, it's beautiful and emotional...


    David Byrne part is too different from Sakamoto's I think... not bad but I'm not so impressed.

    I absolutely love Sakamoto's score to this Miya, though, like you I was not taken with either Byrne or Cong-Su's efforts and skip those entirely when playing the album.

    Have you ever heard LITTLE BUDDHA or THE SHELTERING SKY?

  4. Sakamoto - great
    Byrne - average
    Cong Su - too little on the album.

    It's a great score as a whole. I heard it thanks to Miya smile

    THE PIANO | michael nyman

    Some of his music is fantastic. Gattaca is even one of my favourite scores of all time. The Piano is sometimes a bit a mixed bag. There's some stunning tracks like A Wild and Distant Shore and of course its main theme, which even though overplayed, is really beautiful. But not all music is very captivating, unlike Gattaca or The Claim for example.

    Great score!


    You know, Trevor Jones was originally hired to score the film?
    (rejectedfilmscores.150m.com/supposedlyrejected.html)

    I've said it before, and will say it again: I think this is one of Silvestri's best scores (inspite of it's deliberate "Mars Bringer of War" usage -- which is terrifically used, by the way [much more so than Eidelman's ST6]), and a 2Cd set of the complete score would be most welcomed (the 2CD boot is not complete), and if Jones recorded anything, than a 3 or 4CD set would be welcomes (even if just demo cues).
