    I prefer The Fury on a whole to Superman. I am of course wedded to those themes in Superman like many others though, I think I would take 'The Flying Sequence' from Superman (which is basically the love theme) over the entire score for The Fury any day.

    But it's kinda like asking which country owns the most powerful arsenal of nuclear weapons - they could all reek a shit load of destruction either way! dizzy


    Ok sounds like a must buy. I agree that period was his most creative and memorable. If only there was some place on this planet to buy it from. Any suggestions, overseas doesn't bother me.

    Nonsense!

    You're being overly harsh here D, "ridiculously bad"? "amateurish"? They may not be the LSO or Berlin but they're hardly the high school band! Many of the re-recordings aren't available elsewhere and some are not possible with bigger name orchestra due to costs. Without the Prague my collection would be missing some fantastic works.

    NP: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Hans Zimmer

    Great score! The OST, however, leaves me wanting much, much more... I'm no expert on this score, but the soundtrack just leaves me feeling it's very incomplete, missing a lot from the full score. sad

    Favorite tracks:

    1. Jack Sparrow
    2. The Kraken
    3. Davy Jones
    5. Dinner Is Served
    7. Two Hornpipes (Tortuga)
    9. Wheel of Fortune


    ********************!! PoTC Spoilers Alert !!*********************

    Yeah, there's quite a lot of good stuff missing from the official album, like

    - Three fourths of the Cannibal Island Chase
    - The Compass and drunk Jack scene
    - A portion of the Tia Dalma track
    - The Flying Dutchman's Arrival, talk b/w Jones and Jack
    - "Summon The Kraken" and the Flying Dutchman submerges
    - The opening and full second half of the Fight over the Chest sequence
    - Davy Jones' organ theme (film version)
    - The second Kraken attack

    It's very little compared how much is missing from At World's End!! tongue

    NP: Tarzan - Mark Mancina

    Not much but I like the jungle drums and native instruments stuffs wink

    Just finished Thomas Newman's Wall E for the second time today and it's superb, full of wonderfully inventive orchestrations without ever straying too far from the much loved Newman sound. Would definately liked to have seen a few more cues in expanded form, but overall I think most of the cues around the 2 minute mark are just perfect.


    Now onto a first listen of City of Lost Children by Angelo Badalamenti. Has the typically dreamy, ethereal synth sound of his that I enjoy (and was explored to perfection in The Straight Story). But they're a bit stranger here. The beautiful 'Miette' is a particularly stunning cue.

    NP: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - Ennio Morricone

    Great music, of course. But the reason I chose to listen to this tonight is because I just finished watching a film called Golden Queens Commando that totally stole music from this soundtrack several times. I think other music was stolen from other movies too, but I'm only familiar with this one. I'm surprised the film could get away with this. I'm uploading this PG-13 style movie to youtube if anyone is interested in it.

    NP: Les Aventures de Tintin - Ray Parker, Jim Morgan, Tom Szczesniak

    Anyone has listened to this? It is the score of the 1992 tv series adaptation of the comics. Though the score's clearly sampled or synthesized (not live recorded) IMHO it is a very well composed and fitting score not only for the series but it's very good for a standalone listen. The main theme is gorgeous and ethnic music is fantastic.

    Favourite tracks -

    01 - Les Aventures de Tintin (Générique)
    02 - Le Pays de la soif
    04 - La Rue de la tranquillité
    05 - Rawahjpoutalah
    06 - Carnaval à San Theodoros
    07 - Château Kropov
    08 - Derrière la chute d'eau
    09 - Hipparque.
    11 - Retour à Moulinsart
    12 - Tintin et Compagnie

    My rating - 4.5 out of 5

    That is so true but they're also heavily inferior to many other orchestras.

    n.p. HANS ZIMMER - tears of the sun

    A score that carries many good musical elements and the tradermarked Zimmer sound over it and which gets very intense and dramatic toward the final act despite the bad synth first quarter of it on Cd. Somehow, it got particularly overlooked through the years.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    NP: Gladiator - Hans Zimmer

    Except for the Planets rip offs, this score is a great one IMHO. Great action music and themes, and the chorals in Am I Not Merciful? are probably as close to a LoTR sound as Zimmer can probably get, they always remind me of the Nazgul music.

    4 out of 5! punk

    NP: Kung Fu Panda - Hans Zimmer & John Powell

    I saw the movie yesterday, and as much as I loved this score before watching the movie, that´s nothing compared to the fantastic burst of adrenaline it gives me now. The score was a bit downplayed in the german dubbing (don´t know about the original version, obviously), but still noticable enough, and the end title suite was fantastic to listen to in the theatre.

    One of the best scores this year, without any question.
  3. Alfred Newman - The Robe

    Great epic work by the master of lyrical theme. VERY similar to Greatest Story Ever Told. This guy doesn't get enough listening on these threads, does he?

    Bravo! Excellent score and what a fantastic release by Varese. Who would have thought that a 3000 copies limited edition of an Alfred Newman score would be sold out so quickly. For those that have the album, give it another spin. Brilliant music. "The Crucifixion" is easily the scores highlight. A 2 disc masterpiece from Varese which, IMHO, should have been a regular non-limited edition release. And for those that just want to hear highlights give Charles Gerhardt suite a listen. It's the last track on the Captain From Castile:The Classic Film scores of Alfred Newman album
