    Thanks for asking Tim! It's "First Flight".
  1. You don't say !!!! shocked

    Before I die I intend to get this legally, the expanded I mean. The music is just too damn good to have on CD-R.

    Before I die I would like to know of a shop actually selling it for a reasonable price.

    I agree with both you and Erik.

    But I can't say which First Flight is better than the other. It already confuses the hell out of me. dizzy

    I really like the First Flight cue that comes first. But then I hear First Flight later and I'm like "Yeah, First Flight is really good. I think I like it better than First Flight but First Flight is still pretty good as well." So I think we can all agree that First Flight is the best but First Flight is a very close second... errr... first... ummm... flight.

    POWDER theme "cover", sung by Sarah Brightman... I think its lovely.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ft79ruh3G2o

    Jerry Goldsmith's beautiful main theme from "Powder" re-recorded with lyrics by Sarah Brightman. (the ex-Mrs Andrew Lloyd-Webber, who appeared in the original staging of Webber "Phantom of the Opera" musical). Goldsmith mentioned during one of his concerts in London with the London Symphony Orchestra that Miss Brightman had recorded a vocal version of the theme - apparently she heard the music from the movie and loved the theme so much that she asked for lyrics to be written so she could sing it. (she obviously has impeccable taste!)

    Text is based on some comment someone made in a forum years ago.

    Title of the album "Time to Say Goodbye"

    Another good album of Brightman is "Symphony"

  10. a couple of Goldsmith reviews to kill the time with (as I'm working on a composer update in the meantime):

    - The Edge
    - King Solomon's Mines
    - The Last Castle
    - Papillon

    Enjoy
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh
  11. Very well written buddy, don't let what other 'professional' reviewers say get to you.

    This was one of my favourites:

    The main theme returns in "Under the Train" and the exciting "Dancing Shots". Their build up in suspense is what Goldsmith could do like no other. However if one talks about the brilliance of Goldsmith in action mode, one must not look further than "Forced Flight". This is a brilliant example of 3 themes working all as one, layered around a building suspense formula. The drums pound, the brass states the Nazi motif, the main theme and the love theme all between one another. Ladies and Gentleman, this is what filmmusic is all about.


    Or this:

    Papillon is an album I've ignored for far too long. Yes, I've heard it before a long time ago, but not like this, and not the way it deserves to be approached. This is an album that delivers its qualities differently. Or restrained or through a sole simple main theme of perfection. Once again, it shows you that Jerry Goldsmith wrote music unlike no other, with a far deeper understanding for the picture itself than most composers could ever see. Of course the collaboration with his friend Schaffner as the quality of the movie before him left Goldsmith with the opportunity to delve deeper and stronger in the mind than ever before. But in the end Papillon is simply an emotional journey that moves like a butterfly. Meaning, once it transforms before your very eyes, you'll be amazed by the beauty of it. Never again will I forget that.


    As some other people have said:

    KEEP REVIEWING DUDE !!! beer

    And you gave Papillon a whopping 5 stars? shocked I will have to listen to it with better ears then !!

    I have the same problem with Papillon as with most of Jerry's other scores: one or two wonderful themes but the rest is just not my cup of tea.

    I can understand that, but the last time it really opened my eyes, when I understood that it was not only the music but the thought behind it that made the music soar, Jerry is now officially my favourite composer, probably ever smile

    thanks dude, means a lot to hear that smile
    and yes, you should listen to that one again, but I don't think it will move you like it moved me, there was simply a connection that made me open my eyes
