    NP: Secret Weapons Over Normandy - Michael Giacchino

    No comment really. It's brilliant, it's one of Giacchino's top 3 scores, it has an ultra kick ass bad guy motif (which I can play on the piano wink ) and contains a stunning performance by the Northwest Sinfonia!

    A little later in the day I'll throw on LOST in preparation for season 4's premiere later tonight!

    I couldn´t agree more. Secret Weapons is BRILLIANT, and the second score by Giacchinio that I listened, after Medal of Honor. I couldn´t decide which one I like the most, but if my life depended on it, I think I´d choose Secret Weapons....or Medal of Honor, don´t really know tongue

    NP Doctor Who - Series 3 (Murray Gold)
    I continue with my almost obsessive listening of Gold´s amazing work.

    Those last four tracks are one helluva finale. When Thor talks about sequencing of albums SWON is a prime candidate on how to do it right! Giacchino saved the best for last! And these tracks still give me the same joy, goosebumps and giddiness I experience hearing this stuff recorded live. Steve Smith's recording is stunning!

    NP: MEET THE SPARTANS - Christopher Lennertz

    Sure, it's probably not just the worst movie of the year, it's also an utter disgrace that this pile of shite tries to be mistaken as a movie by sneaking into the cinema, the place where they eat popcorn and other movie related stuff, and letting people pay to buy a ticket. Being selled as a comedy, even. But... should I burn in hell for... liking this? It's almost like a better version of 300... Are my tastes completely screwed up? Do I not know what's good anymore and what's not? I'd better lie down...

    EDIT: Ah, wait, apparantly, Christopher is loved by some folks over here! Right... that might explain it... Listening to more of it, it's just fun, not brilliant or anything. The Greek translations are a masterpiece, though, brilliant! What mastermind did that?! (hihi)

    Under Fire | Jerry Goldsmith

    My. Favourite. Goldsmith. Score. EVER.

    Haven't played this one for a while, and it's bloody great to listen to it now. Particularly having just come back from the bar with shit music being played all the time.

    I do too, a real treat, a gem of a score and possibly the best thing I've heard from Moviescore Media so far other than Jeff Grace's fine work on The Last Winter.


    Fur - Carter Burwell
    This is such a great score and the opening track brilliantly establishes the themes/motifs around which Burwell builds and expands the rest of this richly textural work. It has his unique imprint all over every cue.

    Have you seen the film Steven?

    A good film IMO, the score is very different in the movie. I'd like to see this released ala Damien Omen II where you get the original film score and the studio album.

    Without doubt one of Goldsmith's greatest ( amongst so many ) scores!
    On Friday I ate a lot of dust and appeared orange near the end of the day ~ Bregt
  1. UNDER FIRE is my second-favourite Goldsmith score, and one of the best films he ever scored. punk

    DON DAVIS / JOHN WILLIAMS - Jurassic park III

    Apart the gorgeous Williams theme(s), the rest of the score is completely generic and tiring to my ears.

    And don't you just hate how the main theme, when they approach the island, just keeps 'hanging' (don't know the appropriate english term shame ) a few times more? (Davis apparantly said it otherwise wouldn't 'fit' in the timezone of the scene... yeah right). And the completely inappropriate usage of that theme? I thought it was a horrible score slant

    Digital shame It's a 31 min., 24 track promo of the score. I don't know if it will be released, or not. Probably not, given the status of the film wink

    played last night: ALIEN VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM - Brian Tyler

    Oh, it starts out fun as hell, definitely. It certainly remains a lot of Brian Tyler's voice, which is great (although sometimes TimeLine is a little too obvious), with a lot of elements from Horner, Goldsmith, Goldenthal and even Frizzel and it's fun to spot them! Hearing that 2-note motive from Alien halfway through was great!

    So it starts out as an awesome attack at your senses and an hommage to the Alien music all in one (probably Predator as well, but I don't really know that score...), but in the last 20 minutes or so, you've heard it all. There's one track that took a different route all at once, with electric guitar and a modern sound, and I thought it would be the epilogue, or something, but the orchestral score just kept on going and going afterwards, without really adding new elements.

    I'd say it's cursed by the extemely long running time, but as a score written for the film, it's a lot of fun!

    Transformers - Jablonsky

    The big, blundering, but incredibly enjoyable score from last Summer. It is without a doubt media ventures, but there's something about it that just makes you switch of and not care. I love it!

    People can call me nuts, but I think there is enough original stuff in Transformers to keep my attention from beginning to end each time. It's not only 'more of the same'.
    Yes that's right, I used the word original, mwuahahaha...

    The Mechanic - Jerry Fielding

    The most complex film score released in 2007, it offers a lot to the listener willing to take the time to explore it. Such a pity that Fielding was taken away so young - he was one of the great ones.
  2. THE MECHANIC is one of the most compelling arguments for atonal scoring that I've heard. More films deserve such intellectual rigor.

    NP:King Arthur

    After so many Powells (who has the good things of ZImmer but without his fauls) , and POTC3...This score seems terribly simple and synthetic. Anyway It still has this pure Zimmer power.

    "Woads to ruin" and the last minutes of "all of them" are some of my favourite Zimmer moments.
  3. I thought it's terribly simple and synthetic before PotC 3 appeared... That's exactly what the score is. I'd add banal and uninspired too. ANd that's being said by an avid Zimmer fan.

    Synthetic? rolleyes
    Doesen´t seem to me. I don´t hear any synth in "On the Road" for example. WITH synths? Yes; SYNTHETIC? Hell no.

    But Zimmer has the virtue of, SOMETIMES, making a 100 piece orchestra sound like a bunch of synth elements. Not the case in most of King Arthur IMO.
    I´m a die hard fan of King Arthur and Pearl Harbor by the way. cool

    Wrong Turn 2 - Bear McCreary

    A very effective score by McCreary.
    This young guy is very good!
    I'm very keen to hear what he comes up with over the next few years.
