    One of the best sci-fi horror scores of the 1980s.

    Femme Fatale - Ryuichi Sakamoto

    Generally alright, the 13 minute Bolerish cue is an interesting variant of the original idea. Half of the album is good or very good and the other half is just awful.

    That Bolero-rip sure did catch my attention in the film. More than the steaming hot erotic scenes it accompanies. tongue

    It's a studio recording (early 70s) recreating a concert he did a few days earlier. Came out on CD for the first time last year (Universal France).

    NP: Film Music (Stromberg & Morgan)

    Wonderful music. Of course, the composers assembled it as a listening experience demo for people interested in hiring them (which has lots of moods and tempos mixed throughout) ... but very dynamic and nicely-orchestrated music nonetheless. Another set of composers who aren't getting the top projects in Hollywood like they deserve....

    NP: Unfaithful - Jan A.P. Kaczmarek

    This is my kind of music, gorgeous stuff.


    His best score to date along with

    EVENING
    TOTAL ECLIPSE

    He never went beyond those 3 scores.


    His best scores to date in my opinion are:

    1. Bliss
    2. Leonie
    3. Unfaithful


    No one like his score to Hachiko? It's my absolute favorite of his.
  2. SAVING PRIVATE RYAN - JOHN WILLIAMS

    Exemplary restrained writing, such a score is what the movie needed, the fact that the battle scenes went unscored was another great decision on the part of Williams, or was it Spielberg? Makes the moments that have music that much more effective. As for the album, I never play track 1 but let the reprise play out at the end, I never do this on any album in fact when Williams reprises his main theme at the end, works better IMO. I keep the best for last, in this case one of the best cues John has ever written. That hymn represents everything those men and women fought for and reminds us their sacrifice was not in vain. It never fails to bring tears to my eyes.

    Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - John Williams

    While I do like the 45 minutes of highlights on the original CD, the CD feels longer than it should be (with the somewhat poor presentation of the album). I don't think it's one of the best Star Wars scores (or John Williams), I'm contemplating getting rid of my copy...

    I did it awhile back, as the regular CD was more than good enough.

    Do it!

    I like the original CD. There's some creative editing on that album but I do also find there to be two or three cues that are deathly boring. One major disappointment for me was that Williams didn't initially turn The Flag Parade into a concert work. He did so AFTER the film came out. I absolutely loathe the way The Flag Parade just fades out on the original and UE of the score. Thank goodness we have the RSNO's incredible rendition of Williams' concert arrangement of that cue on the "The Phantom Menace and Other Film Hits" album released by Varese.
