    I think you'll find that the good franz_conrad is well versed in such a soundtrack, yes.

  1. Thankyou Timmer, for defending my honour.

    But honestly, could anyone listen to 3 Poledouris western scores in a row? I find after I play a score, I either want to play it again, or I want to play something completely different. wink

    Battle: Los Angeles - Brian Tyler

    If they gave awards based on how loud things are, this one would sweep the board!


    One of the worst scores of the year.

    The film is horrible, but I honestly can't remember much of the score, except when it was playing melancholic in the more calmer periods. Of which there were few. Mostly, it was buried beneath an onslaught of sound effects.

    Both film and music too loud for my taste.
    I am extremely serious.

    The recording is horrible. They are trying too hard to blend orchesta, electronics and percusion.
    I enjoy a coupleof tracks, but only because I like this "Murphy" stuff.

    NP: The Specialist (Barry)

    Repetitive but hipnotic and sensual. Barry in his game.

    For me, John Barry is one of a very few composers who can make suspense tracks interesting, I love the subtle use of choir in some of the tracks. I agree it's a bit repetitive.

    I find suspense tracks to be most engaging when I play them on my iPod through headphones while I'm planning and executing my bank robberies. I believe it also improves my performance in these endeavours - rather unsurprisingly since suspense music is usually written with this general type of activity in mind. The nervous sensations I would otherwise feel during the activity are able to be transmuted upwards into the music.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    If the album was 10-15 minutes shorter, it would be less of a problem.

    Restoration (Newton Howard)

    One of my favourite melodies back when I was listening to classical music was "La folia", especially Corelli's amazing variations. So it's a pleasure to listen to this score where the theme is played frequently, especially in "The fire" where it's given a grand treatment. I need to get to know the rest better though. My brain only seems to perk up and listen attentively when "La folia" starts playing.

    Great score. "The Fire" reminds me a bit of a theme in LAST OF THE MOHICANS, if memory serves.

    I play it quite often. Seamless blend between JNH and Purcell's material.

    The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles Vol 1 - Joel McNeely/Laurence Rosenthal

    It's nice orchestral music, but due to the nature of the album not terribly cohesive. Maybe the next ones will be better...

    What's it like? Probably another small-time intimate score with lots of boring cues that send me to sleep. sleep

  4. THE WIND AND THE LION - JERRY GOLDSMITH

    The short release this time, the 2nd CD in fact... Liking it a tad more than the expanded, this is powerful Jerry from the year I was born, can't believe I've never truly listened to this one before.

    It's the biggest crock of crap ever written that Krull!
    Don't even attempt to listen to it.
    Thank god they write scores with less of that ridiculous "theme" or "melody" nonsense!
    Now they have non-intrusive, non- thematic underscore drone that's not "in your face" like this stuff!
    And why waste a full orchestra and choir when you can emulate that synthetically now?
    Glad those days of scoring are gone! Utter nonsense!










    Man, that killed me writing that! I think I've listened to Krull at least 32 dozen times!

    Yeah, I know you're being ironical and all, but beyond the "Firemares" cue, there has never really been that much interesting in that score to me. Too much melodramatic horror and suspense stuff. I gave away my copy of the old 2CD set awhile back. Sorry if that is akin to swearing to some here. smile

    I dreamt that I was listening to Poledouris' For love of the game and that I thought it was one of the best scores I'd ever heard. I better do what my subconscious is trying to tell me, so I'm listening to it now.

    I must admit that I always skip the Purcell material. When I'm in a film score mood I don't want to listen to classical music.
