    NP:AVP-REQUIEM

    There's a limit in my ears for so many and so agressive action music, and this score really cross the line.

    Anyway, the action music is good, the most atmospheric side is effective and the previous scores homenages are great!

    Good, but I need a couple more of coffes to enjoy it.

    NP AVP:R - Brian Tyler

    Huge, HUGE, HUGE, HUGE, HUGE!

    No restraint here... which is what I liked about the first three Alien scores and Predator. But I guess this is just one big action scene after another. No need for a good script... just throw the Aliens and Predator on screen and let them fight it out.

    What I do like is that finally a composer manages to keep the spirit of the two film franchises alive by hinting at themes and orchestrations from the 6 of the previous scores (Alien, Aliens, Alien3, Alien Resurrection, Predator and Predator 2) yet not completely ripping them off... while at the same time using his own sound to round everything off. A wonderful homage to the great scores that came before AVP2 and finally an excellent score from a struggling composer! Well done!

    Agree.

    Track 10 with Goldsmith wind motif, and Horner's ankluns has stold my heart!

    Anyway I think Frizzell's theme is near to be ripped here tongue

    Ah, what the hell. I love Horner's songs. They're so cheesy, but I fall for them.

    NP: The Golden Compass - first listen

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



    Windsong from Mighty Joe Young is the ONLY one I truly love.....the rest are bad, now there's cheesy GOOD....lots of cheesy good, and there are cheesy BAD! Unfortunately all the rest of Horner's songs are cheesy BAD! vomit

    Far better than the Linda Ronstadt & James Ingram version - which, unfortunately, I have to admit, I bought as a 12" single waaaay back:

  3. For a second, it almost sounds like that intro to that famous signature sequence in Star Trek VI, but then it becomes Trek II, indeed. What a ride. I love it.

    Absolutly. In fact Star trek II or Aliens (Choose what you want) can be heard a lot in Timeline, and in AVP2.

    NP:Pirates Suites

    Im interested in read opinions about non Zimmer fans about this one.

    What is this kind of "chains "percussion? and what is this kind of barroque harp?
  4. I´ve never heard Timeline (neither the one nor the other). It seems it is about Time... muhahar rolleyes

    touché crazy

    Both timlines scores are worth to listen. Specilly Goldsmith's one.

    AVP2....It's good, very good...but 77 minuts is too much. I choose Aliens or Resurrection.

    To say nothing of that pretty literal rip from I, ROBOT in 'Decimation Proclamation' (the only track I've heard - go to 6mins). Is this what we've come to? Action music that's basically a packaging of greatest aggressive rhythmic techniques from other recent films? wink

    JAMES NEWTON HOWARD - Peter Pan

    Some gorgeous themes, some good action passages, some very generic moments too but it all keeps the balance i guess. Overall it is a very effective adventure score, albeit unoriginal. I guess the same can be said about his TREASURE PLANET to which i was listening this morning but i don't seem to prefer over PETER PAN though.

    Any sound clips? I would've used the ones provided at the other (and now defunct) forum, but I never got around to listening to them.

    Im glad you are so happy, seriously, but you tend to be too exited for some composers. You are more a fan boy than a objective listener.

    But..ey! Long life to Fan boys!!! they are really the people who love the music!

    Said that...it's a good and dissonant score, terrific action music and a effective tone, but...We don't have to overrate this score. We have heard this kind of things before and we will have this a lot of times after.

    And..the main theme is frizzel's resurrections theme!

    NP:AVP2 (tyler)

    Enjoying it very.But Again Tyler is only an action composer..What about an strongest theme to put all this stuff together?? What about a little bit more of structure???

    NP: Island of Lost Souls - Jane Antonia Cornish

    When I think about 2007's best scores... errr... cough cough... I usually think about this score first. Does this mean I think this is the best score of 2007. It could be.

    Cornish incorporates the classic symphonic sound that I love and have missed in the past few years. This is an incredible work!!!

    Yes he can write hummable tunes and IMO that's a talent.....it's just that, well, for me at least, I just don't LIKE a lot of what he writes?!

    I'm 50/50 on Zimmer....still a lot more than some other composers I can name.
