    There Be Dragons - Robert Folk

    Now, this is an Erik Woods score if ever I heard one. Really enjoying it.


    Booya! Great isn't it?

  1. One film-related song of recent years that I think is a wonderful piece of music: Shirley Bassey's "No Good About Goodbye" that should have been in Quantum of Solace.

    THIS is a Bond song - David Arnold does a great job at recreating the whole feel of those 60s/70s Bond song. And having Bassey singing the song also helps a bit!

    Black Gold - James Horner

    Love the main theme! If only James Horner had developed it further through out the score instead of repeating it note-by-note in every cue...

    NP: REAL STEEL (Danny Elfman)

    The battle cues are cool (Elfman does MV!), but the more introspective music (guitar, strings) for the intimate moments are better.
    I am extremely serious.

    Magic - Jerry Goldsmith

    Always loved the unsettling main theme, creepy use of harmonica too. Plenty of classic Goldsmith suspense moments scattered throughout, many skillfully contorting the main theme. 'The Lake' is another standout cue.

    I've been listening to Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and Firebird Suite on a continuous loop all day! I know this should go in the Non-Film Music thread but screw that... everyone (film music fans, too) need to... scratch that... should be required to have these two remarkable, ground breaking, revolutionary classical pieces in their collection.

    Now that I'm done my 5th lap with these two... how can I go back to listening to film music? There really isn't anything better, is there?

    This is my fave recording of ROS:

    The sound is incredibly powerful on this one. Makes others sound dead.

    NP: THE FARTHEST REACHES (various)

    I love this compilation of world music-influenced film scores, compiled by John Takis from the FSM boards.
    I am extremely serious.

    The Cassandra Crossing - Jerry Goldsmith

    Wonderful 70s action/thriller music. Film is hilariously bad, god knows where Goldsmith's inspiration came from.

    The film is a "good" bad film, love those Stavinskyesque rhythms.

    ...and talking of Stravinsky I totally agree with you Adam, Gergiev's version is awesome, my favourite too.

    Viva Zapata! - Alex North

    I woke up this morning with a peculiar urge to listen to something by Alex North. So I am. My favourite Golden Age film composer.

    "Gathering Forces" is one of the great pieces of film music - the original performance remains the definitive one I think. There is an energy to it which isn't really present in any of the re-recordings I've heard and Alfred Newman, conducting, manages to get the perfect balance between the sweetness of the melody (the Newman strings not out in full force, but very much there) and the aggression of the percussion.

    Since I bumped into Alan Silvestri this morning this seemed appropriate, especially taking into consideration his reason for being in London...

    Just saw the begining of KING OF KINGS on Channel 5, now THAT Ladies and Gentlemen is how you write choral music, unlike todays mostly generic choral writing you could take away the choir from the theme to King of Kings and it would still be full of substance.

    Under the Volcano - Alex North

    A blisteringly good musical portrait of alcoholism. This is simply exceptional music, one of the most treasured albums in my collection, a 21-minute masterpiece.

    It certainly is! I recommend following it up with the Amazing Stories score Alamo Jobe which is stylistically very similar.

    Don't buy the lossless download from Silva Screen! It's riddled with ticks, pops and clicks.
