    I've heard it and all I can think of is Patrick Doyle and what he was "forced" to produce for Thor. Get it?

    Earlier, heard HARD RAIN - Christopher Young

    An absolutely brilliant action score, packed to the gills with interesting variations on his many action motifs. It's quite amazing the diversity he achieved with this, including a great main theme and sly use of a harmonica. Sadly, there aren't too many other scores like it in his back-catalogue.

    Now onto EVIL DEAD - Roque Banos

    5 tracks in; it's great when he unleashes the full orchestra but it's only been in small, sharp bursts thus far. The rest of the time, I'm struggling to stay awake.

    I know what you mean and I was initially disappointed by that, but I think Newman pulls that side off quite well, and there's a decent amount of the album that isn't done that way (I was reminded of Goldsmith in parts).

    Some good stuff in there indeed; some cues are very fine, but why do i hear Zimmeritis in here as well?

    (btw my only favorite Newman score is Serenity, which doesn't make me the expert on the man...can't quite get his style all these years)
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    In Tarzan, I found the action writing sharing elements from Newman's Serenity score that i love so much (cues like "Take me to the Meteor" or the spectacular "Finale" are very well done) and the softer, sentimental passages are enjoyable to the max: Tarzan's and Jane's thematic material is the most interesting, stuff like "Tarzan", "Tarzan and Jane" but also "Tarzan and Jane at the lake" and "Reunion" demonstrate some very fine writing from Newman although i could do without the Zimmeresque nature.

    So, so far we have Patrick Doyle, Jerry Goldsmith & Hans Zimmer.

    Add to this, the gaps between the tracks reminds me of John Cage.

    Can no-one write anything original these days? Or are people just trying to find other composers in people's work?

    I don't think Erik was saying it sounds like Doyle, rather that Newman has adapted his style to a more Zimmerised approach, as Doyle did for Thor. And I think there's always been a touch of Goldsmith in Newman's writing, so that's nothing new.

    This is what i understand as well.

  4. I haven't heard the score yet but I'd like to point out that just because something sound a bit like Zimmer doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing.

    It swims prettily by. It's okay, I didn't feel like I'd wasted 75 minutes of my time but there was nothing that really caught my attention, I might give it a second try?

    It's also a shame that even David Newman is "forced" down that all-pervading anonymously generic ruddy "Zimmer" sound. MAKE. IT. STOP!!!!!!!

    No, of course not. But it's overwhelming use is tiresome in the extreme.

    Somehow I made it through the 7th track before deciding I'd had enough.

    This is NOT good.

    It's a nice score, the last part contains some very strong material.

    When David Neeman starts doing it then it's bad thing.

  7. I'd rather hear David Newman enjoyably channel Zimmer than not hear David Newman at all.

    I'd the rather the director hire an RC composer instead of having Newman write in this manner. Why hire Newman if you don't want to hear HIS sound? crazy

    I wonder if that's how it went. Newman has worked with these filmmakers before and not done it. I am told that it was Patrick Doyle's decision and nobody else's to go the way he did on Thor and then Jack Ryan, a way of showing Hollywood that he could do that stuff if that's what they really want (and evidently it is), to ensure he can still get high-profile work outside of his reliable collaborator Branagh. Maybe Newman - whose assignments have rather been drying up in recent years, though of course that may be his own choice - decided to do the same thing.

    I think the person to blame for all this is fairly clear and it isn't Patrick Doyle or David Newman or Kenneth Branagh or whoever directed Tarzan. Whether it was his intention or not, everything is now about him.
