  1. NP: Legends of Tomorrow (2016) - Blake Neely

    I have watched this show very sporadically. They seem to have a flashing mind eraser, just like the Man in Black. Since one is Marvel and the other DC, an interconnection seems unlikely.
    Anyhow, the music left a really positive impression and so I gave it a shot. This is very nice melodic TV scoring. Not too demanding, good background listen.

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    Comrade Detective Joe Kraemer

    For those of us disappointed that he didn't return to Mission Impossible 6 (and if you weren't, what's wrong with you?), this recent release of a 2017 TV series is a welcome surprise.

    It's very similiar to his Rogue Nation score, almost quoting it directly in places. The orchestra doesn't quite sound as large, but the writing is just as quality.

    THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS - JAMES NEWTON HOWARD

    Will need a few more listens but it's certainly very pretty.

    SUSPIRIA - Thom Yorke

    The most captivating horror score I’ve heard in years.

    It's all very James Newton Howard-y, but it doesn't have much of a hook.

    It's extremely James Newton Howard-y, especially in the softer, delicate material. But I agree, doesn't have the thematic weight of some of his other scores from the same genre.

    No, that would be his Peter Pan score.

    That's been his problem in the whole of the 2010s and even parts of the 2000s. With a few exceptions, like MALEFICENT.
    I am extremely serious.

    Justin Hurwitz - First Man

    I love this score, especially after seeing the movie.

    NP: THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS (James Newton Howard)

    Pretty and nice, but ultimately a bit anonymous. Howard has done great classical pastiche before, like on RESTORATION (a fantastic score and brilliant merge with the Händel stuff), so it's not like it's new territory. But there is something 'lacking', I think, in his scores in the last 10-15 years that I can't quite put my finger on.

  3. Bad Times at the El Royale (Michael Giacchino)

    My god, is this ... boring. I hope the movie is more interesting?
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh
  4. The Incredibles 2 (Michael Giacchino)

    Maybe I'm getting an allergic reaction to Giacchino, but this started to work on my nerves rather quickly. Always those shrill trumpets. Plus the fact it's underscoring a poorer Incredibles film. Hmmn, Giacchino just doesn't do it for my like in his Medal of Honor days

    Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald (James Newton Howard)

    Certainly not as fantastic as I'd hoped. The end credits track released earlier is still a ripper though, more of that please.
  5. NP: The Vikings (1958/2018) - Mario Nascimbene
    The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, Nic Raine

    Just started playing. The sound is spectacular. A fantastic release out of the blue.
