    Dark Void - Bear McCreary

    Taken on its own terms, it's OK. I mean, if I'd never heard another note of his music, I'd probably think more favourably of it.
    But, my god, his tribal percussion thing (again) is so utterly boring and monotonous. Very simplistic stuff and utterly one-dimensional.


    I haven't made it through this one yet. Much prefer the simpler, more emotional BSG music rather than this wall of sound.

    I prefer the mix of the two, as presented in his best bsg score to date imo, the 3rd installment.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.
  2. Agreed. BSG 3 is a fine album. That album and the best parts of seasons 2 and 4 do mean that I'm really interested in what Mccreary does for at least a few scores. DARK VOID had the disadvantage of being a game score (which often means drama is less the subject than kinetics, nothing implied about the craftsmanship involved in the scoring).

    With the exception of parts of this score, Conan The Destroyer and Flesh + Blood has Basil scored anything else in the Conan style?

    Thank you plindboe!


    Welcome. smile It's a very fine album, with high quality music, but it's ridiculously short. Here are a couple of reviews:

    Excellent choice, wise lady. It's my preferred one too, especially the score. beer

    But you're wrong about one thing though. The Indiana Jones series doesn't contain a fourth film. It's the first film in another series, that is not about Indiana Jones and his adventures, but about lifeless characters and boring adventures, however I admit they do look a lot like certain well known Indiana Jones characters. Sadly the guy directing this first film in another series that isn't about Indiana Jones wasn't really Steven Spielberg but some nobody shooting his first project, and failing miserably, he simply used the same name as an alias.

    BLADE RUNNER - VANGELIS


    It's one of my alltime favourite soundtracks and one of the analysis chapters in my master thesis. Great choice.


    It's another character in the movie, that much is certain. Without it, the film would certainly have been not as mesmerizing.

    Anybody knows whether the 3-disc 25th Anniversary album is worth getting? I hear the 3rd disc is entirely new material by Vangelis in the same style of Blade Runner.

    I have it, and if you're really a fan of the music, it certainly is. Disc 1 obviously is the best, though, with Disc 2 simply adding more atmospheric music without much diversity. Disc 3 is a totally different affair, with added monologues from the director and other individuals, sometimes not so much in the Blade Runner mood. It's some kind of conceptual music. You need to be a fan of this kind of music to really appreciate, if you're just a casual fan because of the film, disc 1 (the original soundtrack album) will do fine.
  5. OK will try before I buy, thx Bob. wink

    Isn't it everyone's?

    I actually don't think the score is that far distant behind the others. I'd say there is a bigger gap between Raiders/Temple of Doom (both incredibly good) and Last Crusade, in my estimation. The film is very much behind the others, but I still found it enjoyable enough.
  6. Amalia (Nuno Malo)

    Don't honestly see what's all the fuzz about this score, it's nice but nothing special. Then I like his other score Julgamento a lot more

    Last Crusade is top-drawer Williams, but it marks a transition from the clear-cut eighties use of thematic material to the more amorphous nineties works where thematic associations are less obvious.

    NP: THE KINGDOM (Danny Elfman)

    As long as we're onto underrated scores, this is one of Elfman's best representatives. If you're into post-rock (Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, Sigur Ros etc.), you'll love it.
