  1. NP: Space Battleship Yamato (2010) - Naoki Sato; Hiroshi Miyagawa

    Gay ol' orchestral scifi romp. Great score!

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    The Wolverine - Marco Beltrami

    Typically stacked with solid action cues. The filler material is mediocre. The first of the good bits, 'Logan's Run', is possibly the best of the lot with its unusual rhythmic, percussive orchestrations.

    Stalingrad Angelo Badalamenti

    On second listen, this isn't so interesting. Not sure I understand the hype on this one. Even the highlight of the score, the heroic, power anthem type theme, sounds like something most RC composers could write.
  2. It sounds like something Morricone wrote decades ago.

    I hear more Trevor Jones in it than anything else. Combined with Badalamenti's CITY OF THE LOST CHILDREN. RC composers have a knack for power anthems, but not for good ol'fashioned long orchestral themes in the classical sense, such as Jones', and such as this score here; the themes are loveable and grand, instantly memorable and the score has a very nice structure; although i can see why some would consider it a bit dated as a listen.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    I don't think that Beltrami, with the exception of Angel Eyes and the gorgeous I AM DINA, has a particular gift for melody. Now, action cues though, are his real forte. However, he rarely comes along as inspired as he was in the past anymore.

    Yeah, I can hear that too! dizzy

    Whatever it is, it's good - but not amazing. (At least not to my ears.)

    True...and that's part of what makes it so great! You rarely hear those anthemic RC tendencies rendered in such an organically ballsy and kick-ass environment. That brass, that stomping percussion, I love it. And yeah, those sweeping themes and the Morriconean vocals? lick

    Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Freedom Cry Olivier Deriviere

    Only five tracks from the promo, but what a magnificent five tracks they are. The most impressive Assassin's Creed music yet. I really hope this composer picks up more work, because he is a beacon of hope in an ocean of smaug.

    NP: HITCHCOCK (Danny Elfman)

    I just got the CD. There are subtle hints to Herrmann, but mostly it's Elfman in his more minimalist style with discrete elements of his more melodic approach from yesteryear. It's very nice!
    I am extremely serious.

    They've turned it into a film now and the good news is that Zimmer and Balfe are back to adapt their appalling music. Wonder if they'll send me a promo this time.
