    I'd certainly like to know your 100 of all time.

    In fact, I'm pretty sure I could name a good few of your 100 myself wink

    NP : HAMLET - Ennio Morricone



    God but I love this score! From the blasting organ near the begining to the traquil yet ethereal moments with more than a touch of Wagner.

    Just wonderful and I'm playing quite loud!

    A big thank you to Alan for this wave

    The Dark Knight You Know Who

    I read once on this forum that 'Harvey Two-Face' was a highlight of JNH's career. Well, it's a good track, but a highlight of his career? No.

    So far nothing has really peaked my interest. I'm sure it works fine in the movie though which I can't wait to see!

    Edit: 'Like A Dog Chasing Cars' is pretty exciting. I like it. Here's hoping for more...

    NP: Kiki's Delivery Service - Joe Hisaishi

    Perfect for a sunday afternoon.

    I prefer these "older" Ghibli-Hisaishi scores (Totoro, Porco Rosso) to newer ones such as Spirited Away or Howl's Moving Castle. It's partly because of nostalgia (I saw those movies countless times as a kid biggrin ), but I think they're more energetic and memorable.


    Oh I love this score. It was the first Ghibli movie that I saw and the first Joe Hisaishi music that I ever heard. It really is great music. Even the Japanese songs at the end are good, even though I have no idea what they say.

    NP: Mulan (promo) - Jerry Goldsmith

    Like Atlantis: The Lost Empire, I feel there are two halves of this score too - the first not-so-serious with some developing thematic material, and the second with great action music, ethnic stuff and a sadly underused choir. One of my current Top 10 scores, and one of the best by Maestro Goldsmith!

    My rating - 4.5 out of 5!


    I swear we are always listening to the same music at the same time accidentally. I just listened to this the other night for the first time in ages, and I enjoyed 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

    I had my first listen of this today. I got through the first three tracks and found myself lying down on the sofa. I decided to switch to "Like A Dog Chasing Cars" as I assumed it would be some loud action writing. Got about two minutes into that and then turned on the TV. rolleyes sleep

    The fact that it starts with a 9 minute track, a 4 minute one, a 5 minute one...

    ...it's not a nice thought when you see something of that length and you can roughly guess what it's going to be like about a minute in.

    I hate to think what the 16 minute finale is gonna be like. sleep

    Well the 16 minute final track is not that bad, but if you want a track of this style from Zimmer you can choose from many other works which are better than this one.

    It's quite boring I think. Sounds the same all the time, especially that drumloop or beat or propulsive devise (biggrin ) that runs throughout it ... the WHOLE time. No, it's not exciting, perhaps for example the track in the middle. The suite at the end just goes on and on... I'll probably miss something, but well, I don't have the courage to find out what.
