    Could you or Thor give me an example of what's not to like in Vertigo? I'm not 100% sure I understand you?

    For me, it's mostly just a lot of the simmering, low-key stuff that occupies the bulk of the score. It's brilliant film music but I often find myself checking my watch and waiting for "Scene d'Amour" to pop up. With the Hitch/Hermann scores, three or four highlight cues are usually enough to satisfy me.

    Thanks guys, I understand now. I love that kind of scoring so it's not a problem to me.

    I love ALL of VERTIGO love

    good review James, but I must have listened to another score because I truly hated it. Not a hint of the usual Doyle magic and very standard (almost irritating) action music. I give it **

    I agree with Thomas. Like his score for THOR I'd give it no more than 2 stars.

    NP: ON THE BEACH (Christopher Gordon)

    Great album that spans many different moods throughout -- always with top-class orchestral writing.
    I am extremely serious.

    It's a great score IMO but don't you think it also deserves to be in the correct thread? wink

    Pleasantly surprised you enjoyed this so much. I think it's clear to see that Doyle was more comfortable writing in a modern style on this score than he was on Thor, and there's quite a lot of depth to it both in the instrumentation and the various motifs scattered throughout the score. It doesn't have themes as obvious or satisfying as Thor though.

    I liked Thor a lot more as well, especially the theme which I think is awesome

    He'll be premiering selection(s) from "Jack Ryan" there, too.

    My initial reaction to Jack Ryan was not so favourable. My considered reaction is rather more favourable:

  6. Great review, James. I think it was very fair. I look forward to listening to this one.

    I must admit I wasn't that taken by it on my first listen. I must have been in the wrong mood because the second listen was much more favourable.

    It is definitely a score that demands you join with its' own moods as opposed to adapting to yours.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!
  8. I love the score. BUT: It is sweet, melodic, sweeping but not very demanding orchestral music. A bit on the easy listening side. For that kind of music I find over 80 minutes too long. I always split the CD in the middle. Also I can't find any "musical narration". It all feels a bit like a random offering of (great) material. This is an occasion when I side with Thor. I would have preferred a shorter and more "rounded" album.

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    On Cinderella, that is.

    Insightful thoughts, Synchrotones. I also found it to be one of the most mature and well constructed scores from Doyle, an especially pleasant surprise after his recent journeys into Remote Control territory since Eragon. I didn't know if we were ever going to get this side of Doyle again, but he's back and stronger than ever!
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Doyle will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, and will attend the WSA, where a selection of his music will be performed. Since he's British, I guess he'll also attend the Great British Film Music concert on Thursday.
