    Big Miracle - Cliff Eidelman

    I imagine this could be made to sound pretty good through judicious use of clips, but the album isn't really doing it for me. It has its moments (hence the clips comment) but much just passes by with little happening. Album could really do with being 20 minutes shorter.
  1. Ludovic Bource - The Artist

    First listen to this beautiful and brilliantly written score. The jazz material is also great.

  2. John Williams - Black Sunday

    One of my favourite works to honour his birthday. My favourite score by Williams is Schindler's List, but it's not really good for a birthday celebration, so why not a thriller masterpiece?

  3. "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" (score promo)


    William Olvis' music for the series is some of TV's finest. I've tried to explain the music before, but it's a lush, sophisticated orchestral style that hints at things like Barry's works, or the lighter soft stuff heard a few times on "Firefly" (for the old time-y feel), with good dashes of Americana.

    Perhaps I will write a review for another website.

    Maybe I'll make a suite of three or four cues, so you guys can hear it.

    The Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn Part 1 (Carter Burwell)

    Kudos to Burwell to deliver this score for such a terrible film. Sometimes I wonder where do composers find the inspiration when they get this kind of material.


    And yes, I've watched the four Twilight movies....and I've (hardly) survived. The last one was tough though. It makes the third one look like a piece of art.

    I've only seen the first film (decent but nothing more), don't think I'll check out the other ones

    The third film is the only one which isn't pain inducing. It's pretty decent actually. The endings of parts two and four have to be seen to be believed.

    The last book is even more terrible (I know the plot, but I never going to read o watch those craps). A lot of movies deserved more the kind of score that Burwell, Desplat and Shore did for Craplight.

    Desplat's score is the only thing I've managed to enjoy out of the whole Twilight saga. Wonderful theme and typically excellent action music from Desplat.

    Excellent, thematically inspired and deeply melodic. It's indeed far more than what the crappy gaylight thingy ever deserved. The other 2 composers working on the saga from time to time obviously realized it and didn't care that much; bored and uninspired but wouldn't blame them. I wonder where Desplat drew his inspirations from.

    It's very easy to feel for lesser material when it's your job to. I don't mean in terms of money, but having been asked to score the odd piece of crap while I was at uni, I can say that I saw it as a challenge rather than the project somehow being below me.

    If I can improve the film in any way through music (I can assure you I didn't), regardless of the artistic merit of the film itself, then that is a worthy task!

    Young's score is one of the best of the year for me and I really like Lockington's score a lot.


    Agree on both accounts.

    Listening to Erik's Best of 2011 show and I am at the moment in the middle of the Tintin portion. Indeed there is no grand theme that stands out here, but such energy there is in this music! That really is the work of master, when interest is kept at high level like this mainly by the sheer structure of the music. Lovely, and looking forward to hearing the whole album! (When I get around to ordering it...)

    I think the only problem with the Tintin score is there's no grand suite of themes.

    In the movie it was absolutely breathtaking, how busy and complex the music was but most importantly, it has an amazing constant and flow. Truly the work of someone who knows his craft wink

    Reached the Soul Surfer segment of the program now... and judging by Erik's suite this is nothing short of magnificent. I am enjoying the lighter moments, the "ethnic" components and the very well crafted orchestrations immensely. Deeply moved. Indeed.

    Listening to the clips from Back to Gaya - will purchase it very soon. It is quite incredible how much this moves me. As some of you might remember I am quite partial to Kamen's music, and this, it's like a voice from heaven! First time I heard the strains of the main title, it almost brought tears to my eyes... I was certain I would never hear a new Kamen score again, but here it is! Can't wait to hear the whole CD.

    Thanks Mikael for releasing! (And thanks Michael for composing!)
