    Christopher Lennertz kick is still going with me!

    Been playing Warhawk, Gun, MOH: Rising Sun, Humanoids From The Deep and Saint Sinner.

    All a good listen. Especially Gun and Warhawk.

    I've not yet heard his music for Supernatural. That'll be next.

    And don´t miss "From Russia with Love", great action score.

    I haven't listened to the theme is quiet some time...

    Hm, I can imagine it is quiet for some time then! tongue wink
    (hehe, sorry, I just thought those were funny typo's!)

    but I think you are hearing low trombones, tuba and trumpets.

    Thanks!
    You know that by just thinking of the music? That's impressive.

    But on the other hand, let's be honest, scores were FARRRRRRRRR better than they are now!


    See, I don't think they were.
    It's just that we've been presented with a truly excellent synopsis of the full score, far more often than not even represented in a suite/symphonic fashion that 'made more sense' to the ear.

    Case in point: Miklos Rozsa's absolutely groundbreaking and epic Ben Hur is still best represented by the Decca 48 minute re-recording, even though there's some truly excellent 'full score' presentations out there. And while I'm glad I have them, for several reasons, I actually very seldom listen to them. The repetition and length simply wears me out.

    So I remain most happy with my shorter CDs. 45 - 50 minutes is just long enough to keep my attention, AND make an excellent representation of most any score in the business, leaving out the lesser, or least interesting bits. Yes, I know the argument is that with those 480 minutes 6-CD representations you can edit out what you don't like, but I'm a consumer, not a producer.
    I don't filet my own chicken, I *buy* the choice parts for proper cooking.
    I don't select my own grapes, I *buy* a proper wine for immediate consumption.
    I don't edit my own music, I *buy* the best possible representation for uninterrupted listening pleasure.

    I *could*, but I don't *want* to.

    Which only goes to show, really, in the end that Erik's

    I think The Mummy Returns is a great example of that. The soundtrack release is fine, but I don't think anyone (I've only done it once and it was bloody difficult) can happily listen to the complete - 2 and a half hours of loud orchestra. explode

    NP: Veronica Guerin - Harry Gregson-Williams

    My second favourite score by Mr. Gregson-Williams (Sinbad is my favourite). I love the Irish music so I like the tracks Driving and Conversations a lot. Bad News is also a truly amazing track (1:29-2:55 kiss ) and I also like the Funeral song sung by Sinéad O'Connor.


    I agree, i also love that score! http://musiconfilm.net/get_review.php?id=177

    Eh? confused
    Did I miss something?
    Was there a remake?

    NP: The Alamo - Dimitri Tiomkin
    Wow. Full-blooded rough 'n'tumble scoring with a huge sense of passionate romanticism thrown in there. It's such a fine score, with such beautiful themes (De Guello, Green Leaves Of Summer and The Legend Of The Alamo theme are all top-notch) that I don't even mind the patches of dialogue peppering the score (luckily they are few).

    It's still amazing to me that it took a Russian exile to define the sound of the West for three decades (only to have a Italian, who doesn't speak a word of English, define it for the decades following. smile )

    Not sure why I torture myself like this but I'm going to give this score one more shot. This is my fourth playing of the score and I'm going to do my best to find that magical spark that has some people thinking that this is the cat's meow!

  3. NP: The Legend of Butch & Sundance - Basil Poledouris

    For me this is confirmation that Poledouris delivered right up until the end. Some lovely "folksy" touches but this score shines when the composer dials up the drama with the more rhythmic cues.

    Well done, Basil and well done Mikael for being able to issue this poignant score.

    Don't worry, I can't hear it either. The theme from Sky Ferry is great, but apart from that it just sounds like a standard adventure score. slant
