    Of course, one can choose to bend the definitions any which way one wants, just as I can choose to call a pig a horse. But in the long run, it would undoubtedly lead to misunderstandings.

    This isn't like pigs and horses. It's more like clementines and tangerines. But if you want to be so nitpicky, so be it. *shrug*

    Yes, it's pretty much like pigs and horses. What you and Alan and all the other websites are doing is NOT awards in any shape or form. But of course -- you're free to call them that. No one is stopping you. At some point, however, this nonsense will cancel itself out due to over-usage and people will hopefully go back to calling them what they are -- top lists and favourites.
    I am extremely serious.

    And here I thought I'd seen it all at MT. But this "conversation" takes the cake.

  2. Getting back to Alan's awards (or however you would like to think of them), I just heard GRACE OF MONACCO and it is very nice. I'm one of surprised that this was the first I had heard of it. I also just gave BOXCAR CHILDREN a listen and found it to be underwhelming. I have to agree with Edmund here: HTTYD 2 blows that score out, and in my opinion is better than every other score listed under animation here that I have heard. Apparently you don't care too much for it, Alan?

    So ... that's an award, right? biggrin
    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.
  4. Since it took a cake, which is a physical object to symbolize Erik's, uh, distinction, then yes, it has the potential to be an award...but only if Erik slices it in half and hands a piece each to me and Thor in a ceremony. wink

    No, there's something about HTTYD2 that I actively dislike. Didn't like the first one either. Some of the tracks are pleasant enough, but nothing more for me.

    I usually advocate looking past personal likes or dislikes and listen to the quality of the writing, or at what the composer is actually doing when it comes to considering the quality. But HTTYD2 is an example for people to use to say that I don't practice what I preach.

  6. My "awards" are a very personal thing (confirmed by how few are generally agreed by others). If others agree with my choices then that's great!

  8. It always surprises me how easily people forget how varied tastes can be when it comes to music.

    Not everyone likes the same styles of music composers produce.

    I'm somewhere inbetween on HTTYD2. I like it quite a bit, but as an album experience it's a bit too much and a bit too "full-on" over the course of the album. Still, it was in my Top 10 of the year.

  9. Yes, it's a very busy score, but a fine one nontheless.
    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

  10. My choices for best scores of 2014 has just been posted over at my Reel Music blog:

    https://reelmusic.wordpress.com/2015/01 … winners-2/


    A difficult choice for some categories as 2014 was a good year for music.

    You've certainly made some.... unique choices.

    (The only thing I would contend is that 2014 was a great year for film music!)

    What can I say except that they are some very personal choices.

    so these choices will be different from the film music critics? I couldn't qualify to vote this year as I only 'experienced' 80 soundtracks.

    These choices would have been my own choices submitted to the IFMCA. But many of my choices are likely to feature in any other lists from reviewers.

    Across the board I am getting almost unanimous "interesting list" comments, i.e., my lists down agree with their choices. Which is fine.

  13. You put Under the Skin as the best score of the year. "Interesting list" is about the best you could hope for. wink

    Nah, but seriously, interesting list! I mean that. Really, I do.

    I'm totally with Alan on that. Not best score of the year, but definitely one of the Top 5 in its category.

  16. It's been nice to see the attention that I've had on Twitter regarding my "awards", particularly to Graeme Stewart (A Nightingale Falling) and Frederico Jusid's (Isabel (Season 3)) wins.

    And the people at Fanderson even wrote a little piece on their site highlighting the win for their release of the music for Space:1999 (Year One) in the Archival Release category:

    http://fanderson.org.uk/gerryandersonne … -for-2014/

    I hope that my modest praise gets them a few more members so that the money can be put into releasing more music.
