    NP : "STAND BY FOR ACTION" THE MUSIC OF BARRY GRAY - Barry Gray



    From the early FOUR FEATHER FALLS through FIREBALL XL5, THUNDERBIRDS, CAPTAIN SCARLET, UFO etc etc. This is a fabulous compilation of original scores to Gerry Anderson shows, Barry Gray was truly a giant talent and I can honestly say he contributed very healthily to my young childhood.

  1. THE LOST CHILD - Mark McKenzie

    This album is just ravishingly beautiful. The first half is especially so. I think Mark McKenzie is one of the most consistently excellent composer ever. By that I mean that the man doesn't seem to write duds. Nearly every score that he writes is just really good. Granted, there are a couple I haven't heard, and he hasn't scored that many, but I'd say the quality of his average score is very high compared to most composers.

    Tim, looking at the track listing for this one I have a question for you that, when I ask myself the same question one theme comes straight to mind...

    Listening to track 19, "Captain Scarlet - Century 21 Logo", which of Gray's themes pops into your head at the end of the logo?

    I was just wondering. A great and dramatic combination of both music and visuals (logo and title sequence) for me.

    PAUL LEONARD MORGAN - Dredd

    I am on my first listen and until now (5th cue) it is God-awful. I guess it genuinely marks the Total Recall of a generation that characterizes Dubstep as music.

  4. So you were talking about Dredd before. You just didn't realise it at the time! wink

    The antidote to the Total Recalls, the Bourne Legacys and the Dredds. Film music proper.

    And for the sake of starting a well-worn (but always fun) argument: I think this is much better than Silvestri's score! And I like Silvestri's score a lot.

    RE: The Avengers

    Funny I read this discussion now. Because my son said yesterday, after seeing the Avengers DVD cover:
    "Actually The Avengers is Iron Man 2 1/2"
    tongue


    Yeap smile My thoughts.


    It's also Captain American 1 1/2, Thor 2, Black Widow 1, The Hulk Redux, etc. Oh wait, actually, it's The Avengers 1.

    I'll pass the message to him, see if he agrees with that as well spin
  5. Hans Zimmer - Black Rain

    The bootleg, of course. The sound quality isn't good, but there are a lot of good things to say about this score. There are of course tracks that are unlistenable (the whole "steel plant tetralogy"), but the soundscape Hans created for the score is maybe not too unique (it is very much in the sound of the 1980s, but with much more intelligence than whatever Harold Faltermeyer ever did or something like that. And you can actually, by the atmospheric character of it, tell that it's a Ridley Scott movie from the score. The atmosphere building is impeccably there.

    Some great action/stalking cues (The Overshadow, Chase of the Steel Plant, Final Confrontation and a little bit in Sato's Escape/Nick's Arrest), some great Japanese-tingled underscore cues (for a while I thought if The Yakuza Codex wasn't at least INFLUENCED by Tora! Tora! Tora!).

    I don't yet know how influential the score was, I've just heard it was and that Zimmer was told to ape his Charlie Loses His Head cue (early piece of atonality from him) for his action music in Backdraft, because Ron Howard loved it so much.

    All-in-all a cult score and a rare case of an early Zimmer work I like quite a lot, in fact I recently can't stop listening to it.

    Get on with it, Lala!

    Very "classical" sounding score, I enjoy it.

    NP : THE David Whitaker SONGBOOK



    As far as I can make out, and the liner notes don't give nothing away, 11 of the 21 tracks are from film scores.

    It's an incredibly ecclectic mix from French pop to lounge to brassy 'music to spy by' to beautifully orchestrated easy listening and even 'classical', I love this album and it's become one of the best buys I made this year.


    I'm playing this. Much easier to quote from my post of a year ago wink

    So, I've actually just been watching the TV show, but I can't help but enjoy the music too. Star Trek: The Next Generation, anyone? It's great getting to relive some childhood, and I forgot how much fun the music was.

    Anyone have any insight on how it was done? (Studio recording or was it electronic? I can't tell some of the time)
