    thing is Thor, in Total Recall (and many more goldsmith albums) the melodies are sometimes so intertwined with his textures you don't spot them that easily. But trust me, Goldsmith always writes a couple of themes, and he lets the themes do the talking, with around that the textures. Total Recall may be one of his most intruiging works of all, because you have to search deeper for the melodies due to the textures and rhythmic variations in the score. That is why most of us find it such a godsend, and something you just don't find anymore these anymore


    Dude you exactly took the words I was hoping to find and put them here in comprehensive form. Could not have hoped to say it better myself...

    the melody in "End of a Dream" Or whatever it's called is just plain awesome.


    You mean A New Life?

    End of a Dream is an amazing piece, but it doesn't have a lyrical theme.

    Nope but I guess I actually meant the first track "The Dream". The one that Conan-ish.

    I get everything in that paragraph except for the last point: "extraordinary beauty"...that is something i have never heard in Total Recall. But fear not...I shall be listening to this score again...and again...and again...until I like it!


    You can always try to return to it, bit I am not sure it will help. I am in the same situation with the music of the LOTR trilogy (except return of the King - I love that one) I tried more than once to like them but so far... shame

    The score's only an hour long, so probably not (of course they might easily find a way of padding it out so it lasts 80'01" and so has a $30 price tag instead of $20).

    I think next week's release will be even bigger than that for most people (though I think it's mediocre).

    Like James said I don't see how you can justify Gremlins on 2CD's. However, a Gremlins twofer would be interesting. Gremlins on disc 1 and Gremlins 2 on disc 2.

    That would be nice.

    Gremlins is a really good score. Very deserving of the expanded treatment. I'd love to see it.

    I pray it's that certain score that we all love and he hates. That means one more copy for someone who truly will appreciate it. wink

    I don't hate Back to the Future. Heck, I might even buy it on Monday. I just don't think it's as great as everyone else does.

    Ok... hate was a bad word. You have mentioned that you enjoy the main theme.

    Honestly, after the BTTF and Indy Jones set I could retire from score collecting and be very happy with my collection. That's, of course, not going to happen, but BTTF seems to be the one that feels like it will always elude me.

  4. I pray it's that certain score that we all love and he hates. That means one more copy for someone who truly will appreciate it.


    Two more copies. wink

  6. I still hope that it's not BTTF. IMHO there's not much really good stuff in this score apart from the main theme and one or two other cues.

    Chips, Romancing the Stone, Judgement Night, Delta Force,... I think we have seen enough bad Silvestri scores released.

    Good lord. You couldn't be more wrong. It's one of the best spotted films containing high octane action cues, wonderful use of the main theme, trademark Silvestri suspense cues, quirky music for Doc... and all of this is performed by a massive symphony orchestra. There is not one note out of place. IMHO, it's one of the greatest scores ever composed!

    Anyway... this is a Goldsmith thread. wink

  7. is this tomorrow or next week they're anouncing the new CD of Goldsmith at Intrada? Because I don't want to miss this one

    I'm guessing myself it will be Innerspace cheesy
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh
  8. YES Let's hope so, another one of Goldsmith's fun era. Or at least it was fun when we last saw and heard it... years ago. No seriously another of his forgotten little gems. We need it!!

    Innerspace would be most welcome, not much of Goldsmith's score made it onto the old release, same as Gremlins with half pop / half score.

    Yes, it's the Boys from Brazil complete score with a bonus disc with alternate cues and source cues conducted by Goldsmith.

    Seems like an extension of The Omen with a hefty amount of Alien-styled brass layers. The score just isn't doing anything for me... I'm just puzzled at Goldsmith's popularity among fans (I do understand and appreciate his influence, but his music just doesn't connect with me).

    You guys can get it, I'm not interested in it.

    I won't be getting this.

    I'm quite happy with the old release ( also presented on the new CD ), Alan, I think you'll enjoy this score, it's classic Goldsmith from his sublime mid - late 1970's period.
