    "Overture" from La Nouvelle Guerre des Boutons by Rombi.
    This one took a little while to grow on me, the main theme is not quite as obviously gorgeous as some of Rombi's other works, but its actually just as good with repeated listens.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    NP: The Expendables 2 - Brian Tyler

    This is an exhausting album that doesn't let up at all - it's wall-to-wall action music. Enjoyable enough, but best taken in small doses!
  1. I found Tyler's most recent work quite tiring - in most senses of the word!

    It's funny, but for a few iconic tracks, I have not been able to get into this classic.

    And when I'm done with the 2CD, I wish there were more cues/variations.

  4. James Horner - House of Sand and Fog

    A heavily underrated score. I loved it (mostly) in the film and I like the atmospheric album. One of the first time when he tried pulling off a certain sound to aid the movie and simplify some of his musical language to serve the movie, while at that. (As much as I love his technical complexity, my biggest problem with James Horner as a film composer is that it's often to the movie's detriment; one of the best and my favourite exceptions is Apollo 13). I love the restraint. And he's not so much, sadly, renowned for that. The score to "To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday" shows a lot of potential here, but it's largely overlooked. This one is much darker, of course.

    The movie is great as well.

  5. ^^ Yes, one of my personal favorites from Horner. It works exceptionally in the film.
  6. I think it's a bit too much in the final scenes and actually I was happy to see the director acknowledge it and blame it on himself.

    NP: Battleship - Steve Jablonsky

    There are some really excellent musical pieces in here, as Steve Jablonsky demonstrate his talent for long form musical development. But half of the album has too much sound design that I can't grab onto. The movie is just as bad, the VFX work is awesome, but the story needed more work.

    Hemingway & Gellhorn - Javier Navarette

    Blimey, this is good. Spanish-flavoured romance and drama. Excellent music.

    Does it remind you of Puss In Boots?

    Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone

    SOme of it is absolutely stunning. Recordare, Ecstasy of Gold (one of the greatest renditions!), the Main Theme for Once Upon a Time in the West and Marco Polo are my favourites.

    Does anyone know how that cd was called of a concert recording in Rome? I once rented it in the library, but can't find the name any more. I remember Erik loved it as well.

    It does not. How remarkable it is to hear Spanish music which does not use the same melody, harmonic structure and precise instrumental detail as James Horner's Zorro music. I had been led to believe this was not possible.
