    Sandor got a reaction from Matt S. in Any others here remember Star Wars before it was first a thing?   
    I was born in the year of Jaws, discovered Star Wars at the age of 5, just after the release of ESB I guess. Saw ROTJ when it came out on the big screen when I was 8 years old. Star Wars -and the music of John Williams- has always been part of my life and it will be until the day I die.

    They stumbled with their second album, but I dig everything else.
     
    If you like Marcus Mumford you should also check out his work as part of The New Basement Tapes.

    Currently into Mumford & Sons. Their latest album Delta is great imo. The last 2 minutes of The Wild are really cinematic and epic, so anyone willing to listen to the whole 5 minute+ song won't be disappointed I think.

    Sandor got a reaction from SteveMc in The Face of Pan (revised)   
    At first I found it very similar to Agnes Of God, but after having listened to both pieces occasionally for a couple of years now, I find that The Face Of Pan clearly has its own, unique melodic core and its own story to tell. Influenced? Of course. Copy? No.

    Sandor got a reaction from SteveMc in Do you consider the score to War Horse a masterpiece?   
    It’s certainly a masterpiece, even if it doesn’t reach the heights of what many consider ‘the true John Williams’ classics’.
     
    I find War Horse so well infused with melody and themes, all of which get a moment to shine in The Homecoming, one of Williams’ finest suites.
     
    It’s a top 15 score for me and my favorite since the first Harry Potter.

    Sandor got a reaction from JTWfan77 in What is your favorite 1997 John Williams score?   
    For me; Seven Years In Tibet. I find the opening suite to be one of John Williams' most powerful works. It's the theme I return to more than any other from his 1997 output.

    Sandor got a reaction from fuhrsy31 in How would you rank The Force Awakens among the Star Wars prequel scores?   
     
    It's mainly that. AOTC is a great score, with an incredibly strong love theme and the single greatest cue from the entire PT: Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale.
