    Oh, I LIKE this. I like this a lot! Very powerful, evocative stuff. It's right in your face, with some of that wonderful melodic lining I so appreciated in The Agony And The Ecstacy. Fantastic!

    Fields of Freedom (Trevor Jones)

    The length for this album is perfect and the score is really too imo. Usual Jones lush themes and i love them. The action material is pretty good. Highly recommanded for Jones' fans.


    Exactly, that's a perfect score indeed although sound-wise, i prefer the Soncinemad suite.


    And goddamn, the LSO is just great!!!

    TREVOR JONES | Fields of Freedom

    This is soooo addictive! I was patiently waiting for a release since the awesome SONCINEMAD I suite (http://www.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm?ID=6337) which i'd strongly suggest too as it has a fuller sound and a bit more coherent form but still, FIELDS OF FREEDOM is everything a good, larger-than-life war drama with slow but big and bold themes by Jones could ever be. Totally recommended!

    I'd certainly agree with you Demetris. Although the CD is short it's long enough to make for a good listen - and the suite on the Trevor Jones SONCINEMAD CDs is a great summary.

    Fantastic!!!!!

    I'm quite surprised but I am struggling to get through the dense music on these 4 CDs. I still haven't managed to get through them all yet.

    I'm glad I have the complete version but I think that I'm more glad that I have the single CD version.

    The law of averages does suggest that you are bound to get something right eventually.

    BTW, I noticed somewhere the post about the problems when quoting someone (something about infinite posts or something). I notice that when you quote someone, the cursor sits between the end of "[/quote" and the "]". Maybe someone needs to sort out where the cursor begins when someone quotes someone?

    Not a problem for me?
    A specific Opera curiosity maybe?

    Anyway, the problem I referenced only has to do with actually not closing the [ quote] tage with a [ /quote] tag (I've deliberately left spaces now obviously because otherwise the board would see them as tags rather than text).

    Agree with both of you. I was impressed in Madrid´s concert; now we can enjoy the (short, but sometimes the shorter the better) score at his best. Specially amazing is the rendition of the main theme in the last track, "Destiny of a Nation", and its various versions through the CD.

    NP: Mutiny On The Bounty - Bronislau Kaper
    Interesting. There's about as much I like as dislike.
    Never been too much of a fan of Kaper's, and this is no exception. However he does rise above himself, especially in the more indigenous cues, which are very infectious.
    This one's gonna require multiple listens before I make up my mind.


    IMHO, one of the ten best scores ever composed. I love the addictive Native theme, the spectacular Overture and blood pumping "Outrigger Chase"... an action track the could esaily be transplanted into any modern day film.... it's that good and ahead of it's time. And FSM presentation is Grade A material! A masterpiece!!!

    One of Powell's best, or the best. And His favourite!


    Orchestra, chorus, electronic ryhtms, drama, comedy, crazyness, tenderness, epic, addictive tunes....

    The Egg Hatch, Birth of a mumble, wives ho, Singing lessons, bob's led, fun food storm, Alien ship, Killer whales and In the Zoo are tracks that makes me speechless.

    And it really makes an infection point in my life for personal reasons.


    I agree. it is definitely one of my favorite Powell scores. It was a lot more emotional and dramatic than I would have expected before seeing the film, but it fits the film perfectly.

    The film is on TV right now and I just saw the Runaway Train Sequence... spectacular stuff. So, I jumped on the 'puter and played that cue again with the speakers turned up to 11. Amazing stuff and one of Silvestri's very best!

    To be technically correct, I'm actually playing the isolated score commentary track. I will never be able to get enough of this score. It's absolute magnificence from beginning to end.

    Curious how a score to such a strange anime can contain so many great cues. There doesn't seem to be much of a recurring theme, it just goes from one great standalone cue to the next.

    Today i woke up by playing loud GRAEME REVELL's dark and energetic THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK. I think it's one his best efforts to date, with an addictive main theme, dense percussion and gorgeously ominous female choirs. I like the subtle usage of electronic motifs as well, notably along with the main theme performances. As a whole philosophy (not directly linked as far as their sound is concerned though) reminds me of parts of his excellent but rejected score for EATERS OF THE DEAD (the 13th Warrior) crossed with the Beltrami style. Speaking of whom, if i heard Chronicles of Riddick now without knowing who wrote it, i'd probably assume Beltrami did.

    Later tried to play PATRICK DOYLE's Nanny McPhee but couldn't handle it so i switched to another excellent and sweepingly melodic score Revell, THE SAINT, this being his top 3 scores along with RED PLANET and the afore mentioned CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK imo. I often wonder if Revell bashers actually listened to THE SAINT, even once. It has such a surprisingly melodic theme and great pieces overall...i miss Revell nowadays, i really do.

    His best work to date (The Crow being very close), and the proof that he can compose for orchestra, with themes and melodies. The reason why he doesn´t do it more often is, well, I dunno, maybe he is only hired for films that don´t demand big scores but functional and background music.
