    The Lost World Jurassic Park

    Listen to tracks like 'Rescuing Sarah' and 'The Raptors Appear', that's jazz action scoring! It's great! biggrin

    cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy <- my rating


    Indeed, and after just watching the movie, I want a complete!

    I must say though, this is one score that works a whole lot better on CD than in the movie.

    No kidding. Spielberg hacked the score to shit in the film. However, the complete "Rescuing Sarah" cue is amazing stuff!

    I was playing Chris Tilton's wonderful score to La Lune You can download the entire score FOR FREE at Chris' web site.

    It's a small score but perfectly formed. Beautiful music indeed - and free!!

    The Final Conflict Jerry Goldsmith

    Few things in the universe beat the awesomeness of this score.

    Completely agree, Steven. For me, this is one of the scores that made an instant impression - and was one of the scores that had the distinction of having the music recorded off the TV with one of these old portable tape recorders.

  4. NP: Hellboy II: The Golden Army - Danny Elfman

    Giving this CD another spin at the moment. For me there's not much that stands out in this one. Some of the cues are actually quite annoying - the theremin (effects) of "Teleplasty" for example.

    NP: Masters of the Universe - Bill Conti

    I have the original Edel expanded edition of this score. Boy, this is one derivative score. Lifts from Holst, Superman, Star Wars, Ben-Hur and others... but you know what... it's so much fun! Not one of Mike Ross' best recordings. My favorite track is the quick action cue "Quiet Escape." it has been renamed "Battle in Greyskull" on the complete release. I love it when one of the violins comes in a bar too early at the 1:45 mark. biggrin

    -Erik-


    This truly is a fun score!
    The 2 disc release is great but they should have kept the full score on disc 1 rather than splitting it!
    And yes, there's the not-so-great recording aspect.
    And a couple of cues where the brass are way off the mark.
    And it's a derivative score using rips from many sources.
    But I love it! Maybe in a bittersweet kind of way. But love it nonetheless! cool

    NP: The Potato Factory - Carl Vine
    What a bloody magnificent theme! Epic and dramatic and seemingly rather overblown for the subject of the film (which, incidentally, Ive never seen, so I can't really know for sure), and a beautful, very chamber music / Golden Age sensibility of scoring.
    Many thanks to Franzie for introducing me to this composer!


    A great score indeed!
    Have you heard Vine's score for The Battlers? Great themes there too!
    And his symphonic work is brilliant!

    Carl Vine and Christopher Gordon write music that really fire my rockets!
    They always nail it!

    Oh, and I'll include Nigel Westlake too! (seem to have an Aussie theme happening here!)
  5. Carl Vine's The Potato Factory is certainly a little-known gem. But it's difficult here on the other side of the world to get a hold of any of his stuff.

    Are The Battlers and Bedevil the only other titles available on CD?

  6. NP: The Dark Knight - Hans Zimmer / James Newton Howard

    Listening to the CD as it was released most of the cues are made up of great passages of music buried in less than interesting drones. A CD that benefits from some series DIY editing.

    Seriously though, I've generally liked throat singing ever since I heard Ry Cooder employ it on his underestimated score for Geronimo.

    This morning I opened up with Christopher Gordon's extraordinary music from The Rugby World Cup. Gordon has a ridiculous amount of talent and a wonderful gift for melody. He is shooting up my list of favorite composers every time I spin one of his albums. I can't wait to hear more from the man.

    I also listened to a few cues from Vangelis' Chariots of Fire I was having a discussion with a fellow film music fan about Oscar blunders and one that has always bugged me was Chariots of Fire beating out Raiders of the Lost Ark... both film and score. Now, the Chariots theme is excellent... one of the greatest ever composed... so I was skimming through the rest of the score to hear anything else that might showcase why the entire score was given an Academy Award over the greatest score ever composed. Well, there is one other nice theme "Five Circles" but the rest just doesn't mesh with me. Vangelis' sound to me has rarely worked... but when it does, it does so magnificently. Example?

    NP: 1492: Conquest of Paradise - Vangelis

    Now, I haven't seen the movie so I don't know how this kind of score works in a period piece but that "Conquest of Paradise" theme is brilliant. Thank God Vangelis recorded the choir with a real chorus. The rest plays beauitfully. One of the best produced albums I've ever heard.

    Gordon has raced to top end of my favorites list in a very short time!
    And yes, his music for The Rugby World Cup is just brilliant!

    Speaking of Christopher Gordon, I just finished watching On The Beach and his score fits like a glove! Very good movie too! Better than I expected. Though I thought the score was mixed a little on the quiet side in some scenes. But great stuff all round!

    It's been a decade but I'm about to watch Moby Dick again just to hear the score in film.

    I've seen it numerous times mate as it was an early favorite of mine (a film i recommend) and i can assure you that the score (All of it) works wonders in the film.

    Couldn't agree more. I was listening to PASSION OF THE CHRIST, the score earlier today and i was thinking how deep, profound and passionate (no pun) this work is, i truly believe it is Debney's finest hour (along with the symphony), one which will most likely never surpass.

    Here's hoping the guy gets more notice within Hollywood, where his talents are sorely needed among many other underused composers.

    I pray to Ceiling Cat for many things, and one of them is that Gordon scores more films!

    Christopher Columbus: The Discovery Cliff Eidelman

    Bloody fantastic score, one that deserves a better performance from a better orchestra. The counter melody from the choir in 'Come O Come Emanuel' works so well, really powerful stuff. Such a shame listening to a score like this that Eidelman isn't a more prominent composer today. sad
