    XYZ - Composer

    I'm not saying! All I will say is that it is MAGNIFICENT, one of the top five film music albums ever released; and the review will appear at www.movie-wave.net at 12 noon tomorrow if you're in the United Kingdom (and, frankly, if you're not then you should reset your clocks to our time zone anyway since it would make life so much more convenient for everyone).

    Yeah, but some of the songs are truly grating (like "Waiting for the Hoedown"). I could never get through the 2CD set in one setting.

    No... I need to take a week or two and really spend some time on that one, listening to it and nothing else. Just haven't quite had the time yet.

    I don't disagree. I rarely listen to anything other than the main title, actually. I'd love to have a 30-40 minute album of highlights.

    I agree, the songs are not my thing at all.

    I was hoping for something along the lines of Duran Duran.

    Great song! Speaking of the boys... they're back with a new album, including this tune and I can't stop listening to it. They still seem stuck in 80s mode, and I don't mind that one bit. smile

    Most excellent news. I loved Duran Duran back when they were the shit and I still love listening to them now!

    Citizen Kane: The Classic Film Scores of Bernard Herrmann - Charles Gerhardt

    Now this is music.

    "The Death Hunt" is one of the best action pieces I've ever heard. So much excitement and drama in a piece only two and a half minutes long...
  3. STARDUST - ILAN ESHKERI

    A fine album. The music has that whimsical, magical and larger than life feeling to it and it accompanies the film very well. One of those rare scores that grabbed my attention in the film. Not too many do that to me anymore. Nevertheless it's a sound that I love and thanks to the makers of the film to stick with that sound, unlike the current trend of many Hollywood execs wanting a much less lyrical soundtrack.

  4. THE WIND AND THE LION - JERRY GOLDSMITH

    First listen of the expanded release. While not a huge fan of Jerry's older style, this has an impressive theme which is used abundantly throughout and to great effect. The score sounds huge and bombastic, which was the norm back in the day. Sound quality is a lot better than what I remember of the original release. But I'll happily give this one to my brother since he wants it.

    NP: SNAPSHOTS 1.2 (Jan Hammer)

    Some excellent tracks from his film and tv days (mostly tv), a follow-up to the classic SNAPSHOTS albums from the 80's-something. Funky, cool, delicious. The refrain from "Eurocops" sounds like the refrain from "Heaven is a Place on Earth"! smile

  5. The Taking of Pelham One Two Three Shire

    So good. Great film too.

  6. NP: The End is only the Beginning - 2012 (Kloser/Wander)

    Beautiful. I like how Kloser always kept the best for the end, especially the main theme (I love that in the DVD's audio commentary he talks about the music and the theme).

    for me it is as good as The Blue Max, and that's his older style too smile Good to hear that the sound quality is much better, it will make my listen all the merrier

    NP : LAST OF THE DOGMEN - David Arnold



    I didn't like this originally but it's really grown on me over the years, it's a damn fine score IMO.

    Helluva nod to the Barry too... What a shame David Arnold scores don't sound like this anymore.

    I wonder if this is still available anywhere. I listened to it once (15 years ago) and thought it was a second-rate Barry knock-off but I suspect I would like it a lot more now.

    It's not by Barry, but it's still first-rate Barry. Nothing second-rate about it.

    Indeed smile Might be too much for more people, especially to play at once; but it's very good in the movie and the main theme is driving and bold, i love it.
