  1. A new review:

    Отряд Таганок (Otryad Taganok/Taganok Squad) - Kamil Abdullin

    https://reelmusic.wordpress.com/2021/11 … -abdullin/

    A score from a 2021 Russian family adventure movie. A short album that has a couple of good main themes and paired with action scoring that reminds me of Danny Elfman and Alan Silvestri. The thematic material does a good job of reflecting the emotional development of the main group of characters over the course of the movie.

  2. A new review:

    Amalgama - Felipe Pérez Santiago

    https://reelmusic.wordpress.com/2021/12 … -santiago/

    A score from a 2021 Mexican comedy-drama about a group of four dentists who sneak away from a conference to an idyllic paradise island. There the three male dentists in turn hit on the one female dentist. This short score features an excellent score from Santiago that is an a cappella score based purely around five voices (2 sopranos, an alto, tenor and bass). Inventive and refreshing, it's worth a listen.

    Just a reminder that, even though I do not post here about it every week, my blog has regular updates on my "Weekly Recommendations".

    These posts usually feature 2-6 scores that have caught my attention over the previous week. Probably best described as 'micro-reviews' the comments are not meant to be an in-depth analysis of the score (as would be the case for a regular review). Rather, it is an attempt at trying to highlight what I think are scores worth seeking out.

    Whittled down from the 40-50 scores that I listen to over the course of the week (by trawling online stores), I hope these regular posts are useful to at least a few visitors to my blog: https://reelmusic.wordpress.com

    Interesting, thanks for sharing, Alan.

    I've heard most of the titles on your list (as I set some kind of record last year, with somewhere between 1500-2000 new soundtracks sampled in some shape or form), and as I read your first category (the drama category), I thought we had unusually many favourites in common this time (BENEDETTA, BUCKLEY'S CHANCE, THE LAST DUEL, THERE IS NO EVIL), but then our preferences veered from there on out. Maybe 3-4 common throughout the rest of the categories. But that's the "charm of the game" -- as usual I like your selections of lesser known titles, with some super-famous inbetween, which is an ideology I very much share.
    I am extremely serious.

    Interesting winners, Alan. As usual, we see eye to eye on some, but not so much on others. I echo BENEDETTA and partially THE POTATO VENTURE, LOST IN SPACE, for example. Will need to check out that Levanto sampler. Skram's CLUE had some OK moments, but not his best effort, IMO. A lot of it sounds too synthesized, even though the Budapest Arts Orchestra is supposed to play on it.

    Thanks for the feedback. I agree, CLUE is not Skram's best.
