    Battlestar Galactica (Season 3) - Bear McCreary

    I've listened to this album many times now. Just Brilliant!

    McCreary is a godsend in the arena of television scoring.

    JAMES NEWTON HOWARD - WATER HORSE: THE LEGEND OF THE DEEP

    Such a relief to hear a score from JNH that it actually ISN'T big bad-ass cheap synth drone after all this time! Lots of Celtic influences with all kind of relative instruments and soft rhythmic percussion, acoustic guitar, subtly dreamy synth choirs and fragile strings, lots of woodwinds, wind sounds, touching atmosphere. Some very beautiful pieces and some truly impressive (like "Swimming" or the storming action of "Saving Crusoe" with its unashamed 20-second or so copy-paste of Zimmer's BATTLE from Gladiator biggrin or "The Net" ) are there too coupled with the necessary underscore and some (few, thankfully) irritatingly fluffy moments.

    This is actually not bad, not bad at all, and rather pleasant i'd say, especially if you like this kind of Celtic musical influences all over your scores .

    It will probably gain extra positive acceptance due to the lack of a proper good score by JNH in ages, i am sure and especially due to its very powerful last quarter on album. At the time and through my numbered few listens however, i am not convinced that it'll actually worth it as it's nothing new; but it is good. Time will tell.

    NP The Water Horse (James Newton Howard)

    Not really impressed by this one. Could be a "The Best of" of any celtic style composer.
    I have to go back to 2004 to find a JNH score I like ("The Village", "Hidalgo), and bits of "Lady in the Water". Since then, just zZZzzzzZZ

    I had my first listen to 451 and my comment is this. I got goose bumps when I heard the beginning of the first track! I think that the percussion miking placement was different than the Naxos recordings. Looks like Golden Scores will have to have a Herrmann month too. Three new recordings to go over.

  1. Hans Zimmer - Da Vinci Code

    Amazing work by Hans, his best for a longer time after the big disappointments in year 2004 and 2005 (aside from Spanglish and in-film Batman Begins). And very good to write a master thesis about religious undertones in Renaissance poem about loss of a child...

    NP : SCOTT OF THE ANTARCTIC - Ralph Vaughan Williams



    One of THE great golden era scores, the great vistas of ice truly inspired RVW, there is no score that comes anywhere near as close to portraying vast ice deserts.

    The track Ice Floes has a very similar feel to Goldsmith's 'cloud music' in Star Trek The Motion Picture.

    This one is easily in my top 20 of all time.

    I've heard it in the film? In fact the film was so crap I was taking a lot of notice of the music which I thought was not bad at all smile

    I'll never be an Arnold fan but I've certainly warmed to him more over the last couple of years.

    Just got home from a very tiring day at the studio where i was recording a Buzantine Choir for 4 hours and needed something to elevate me a bit and clear my head!

    First pop to mind after a LONG time of not listening to it was:

    JAMES DOOLEY - SOCOM 3: NAVY SEALS

    LOUD AS F*CK!

    NP Gridiron Gang (Trevor Rabin)

    I found it quite derivative when I listened it for the first time when it was released, but now wow, I´m enjoying it as a kind of sequel to his "Remember the Titans" score. Not his best work, but sure it has grown on me and with this Rabin touch I like so much.

    The only way this should ever be played: LOUD | AS | HELL! punk


    I couldn't agree more! You know, I always fear complete releases a bit, but with Godzilla, it was never a problem! I enjoyed every single minute of it and it never tired me over the course of its running time. Arnold said in the interview, he couldn't listen to it back to back...I think he should give his score another try . wink

    Which is why, in my books, it's a 5 star efforts. You rarely hear complete (action) scores these day that are engaging from start to finish. Godzilla is and that's what makes it bloody perfect!!!

    From the quiet first seconds (Mahler would label them "leise, wie ein Naturlaut" ; ) ) to the pulsating action music to the sweeping end titles, it's a wonderful listen. It's everything I love about JNH's music and more!

    Sounds very promising so far. I can see this is going to require a lot of time to really get to know.
