    NP : KRULL - James Horner ( CD 1 )



    Big, fresh and seriously kicking ass! This easily goes into my personal top 20 scores ever written, by this I mean as a CD listening experience not as pure film score. As an example, Goldsmith's Planet of The Apes wouldn't make my top 50 but as a score for film it's one of the very best ever written.

    NP:Godzilla (Arnold)

    I love the little motif with bells (Xylophone?????) . Very mysterious.

    When you are in Arnold mood, with all his metals, it's a fantastic score (even with Speed theme there).


    It's not the Speed theme Jordi, it's more influenced by John Barry (this is Arnold remember?). The Speed theme uses such a regular set of chords that it's not hard to inadvertedly 'copy' it. So there, get over it.


    Yeah...Speed...in Godzilla? Where?

    The big sort of heroic, majestic theme for Godzilla is what Jordi is referring to I think. I can see what he means, but he needs to understand it's not necessarily (and probably not) a copy of the Speed theme. Also, it doesn't really sound that much like the Speed theme anyway.

    Well, this thread IS the correct place to NP scores for TV, not Off Topic.

    You can learn much from NP Off Topic.... I certainly do! Just because you don't post much there doesn't mean you don't have to check it out? I try to keep up with all the threads here whether I'm interested in them or not, even the LOST thread, a TV show I care very little for.

    The better half of the two discs containing the creepily awesome The Widow's Web and The Widow's Lullaby, creepy, mystical and powerful. The excellent, exhilarating Ride Of The Firemares and the tour-de-force of The Death of The Beast and The Destruction of The Black Fortress, very rarely do fantasy scores get bigger, more melodic, or better than this.

    Fair nuff! This is the version I'm used to now and I like it a lot.

    I have the original on LP I guess I should pick it up on CD? I often see it cheap.

    The problem with the original recording is that the sound quality isn't very good, even for a 1962 movie. So there's only a bad sounding version I like and a good sounding I don't like. I hope the Tadlow re-recording will be the definitive edition of this score.

    NP : SNEAKERS - James Horner



    This is a great score and either underrated, not talked about, or just that not many people here have it? Either way I like it a lot and it has early touches of his 'A Beautiful Mind' sound a touch of Vaughan Williams plus trade mark Horner piano crashes cool

    Totally agree on both Krull and Sneakers: on the opposite side of the Horner-spectrum but Sneakers has some magical moments, and Krull, well that's just Horner magic from beginning to end. The two widow tracks are mindblowing and the whole climax is insane in its buildup, I read the LSO gave the composer a standing ovation after recording the score, I can only agree with their decision punk punk Krull is his very own 'Empire Strikes Back'.

    NP : FOUR IN THE MORNING - John Barry



    An interesting curiosity amongst Barry's scores. Written in the early 60's starring a young Judi Dench ( can't get away from the Bond links eh!? wink ) with only 9 musicians, Barry did this score for free. An interesting but dour little score that I doubt I'll return to.
