    Sounds great, as long as there are memorable themes to go with that stuff.

    Yep, we already knew he could do the Star Wars stylistics. Now give us some themes!!

    Interesting that people seem to hear something in it that I completely fail to discern (with even references to "themes" which completely elude me time and again).

    To me- as I stated before- it's not a bad score by any means (and one might wonder what would have come out had the composer been allotted more time), and very functional. But it's neither specifically fun, nor specifically listenable, nor specifically clever outside of the film. If I need Giacchino in "that" mode, I'll bung in one of his Medal Of Honor scores, or even better the outstanding Secret Weapons Over Normandy.

    (My rating would be 2.5-3 for its function in the film. But nowhere near 4.)

  4. It's the most subtle and intelligent film music composition I have listened to in a long time. 5 stars from me.
    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    Oh, fair enough. The suites are great! (And I'm really glad he's bringing that sadly outdated pratice back in vogue!)

    Martijn - If you have some time over the holidays, listen to this podcast.

    David Collins deconstructed the score to show the listeners just how clever and well thought out it really is.

    I will listen to it.
    But it won't matter much: my reaction to music is -and always has been- visceral.

    I will still be able to properly evaluate and appreciate a certain cleverness or other cognitive aspect (or indeed lack thereof) when I find it or when it's pointed out, but if my initial feeling and emotional reaction towards a score were a certain way, these (additional) considerations so far never have changed that, ever.

  5. Very nicely put. Kind of describes my feelings towards Alexandre Desplat. But yeah, if I listen to a score and the connection isn't immediately there, it probably won't ever be no matter how much I analyze it. Maybe I'll admire the score more, but I won't love it.
  6. That was a really great episode Erik, listened to it on my flight home for Xmas a few days ago and can't wait for him to dig further into it on future episodes! He pointed out a number of things which had totally passed me by and I thought I'd been listening pretty closely and I know the original 'Star Wars' soundtrack just as well as anyone!

    I totally agree with you Martijn, if I don't connect emotionally with music how cleverly constructed it is won't do anything further to make me enjoy it. I wish it would as I know the 'Hobbit' scores are meant to be as finely crafted as 'The Lord of The Rings', but they just make me feel nothing at all, my biggest film score disappointment ever. Luckily I love the 'Rogue One' soundtrack already so this type of analysis just deepens and expands how much I enjoy it.

    This is a great show. I appreciate Rogue One quite a bit more after hearing this analysis. I recommend it as well.

    Spot on review, James! smile

    Just like you, I too struggle to see what's not to like here. Sounds like Star Wars, yet also himself. It has great thematic material (especially the Jyn, Hope and Whills themes are fantastic)... AND it works well within the movie (except that weird logo sequence). In other words, he nailed it!

    Say what you will of Meatloaf's music, but he can put on a show!

  9. It's operatic rock music. There are some fine songs. And the album "Bat Out Of Hell" is a masterpiece.
