    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    God of War by Bear McCreary: I find the quasi-Nordic/Scandinavian feel of the composition very appealing and find myself returning to it quite often these days.

    Indeed although I love the entire score both the film score and the awesome re-recording by JW and LSO.

    Happy Birthday @Luke Skywalker aka Mañuel!
  5. Obviously your bank didn't think anyone would actually be buying something called Randy Newman's Toy Story Legacy Collection. Everybody knows Randy Newman's only song is Short People. So it was suspicious at the very least.

    Total Recall by Jerry Goldsmith: One of those early 90's Jerry scores that is just perfect blend of orchestra and synthesizers and with strong intelligent musical concepts behind it, here namely the intricately constructed aggressive propulsive action scoring that hurtles and pulses forward with such forceful personality. Melody is present but not in the lead in the action and even the main "the dream" theme first heard in the pounding main title is carefully woven into the score mostly in very subtle variations to underscore story beats in a knowing fashion rather than bolstering the violent antics of Arnold's character. Verhoeven really seemed to bring out the best in the composer.

    Doug wasn't wrong. Silvestri really packed heck of a punch with his music and the score is if not his finest among them surely. The Mummy is equally amazing late career Goldsmith. Every time I listen to it these days I get a bit nostalgic thinking how no one outside a select few writes/is allowed to write action/adventure stuff that way anymore.

    Be sure to check out his documentary scores Metsän tarina (Tale of a Forest) and Järven tarina (Tale of a Lake). Lovely stuff.

    I don't know if Conan the Destroyer would have enough material to fill three discs (even if they include the original OST).

    Oh it is a Finnish children's film so I am sure it is entirely intentional. Panu Aaltio's music isn't half bad though. Presumed Innocent by John Williams Memoirs of a Geisha

  14. Nah just kidding. I got my copy as soon as the set came available. I just think this set should be available forever for everyone to enjoy.

    The Lord Of The Rings: The Unabridged Audiobook

    Since the dwarf names appearing in the Hobbit and consequently in LotR are mostly derived from the Völuspa list of dwarves in Edda, I think the Norse pronunciation is the one to use. Plus these are probably public dwarf names, their private secret Khuzdul names reserved only for their closest kin.

    Julius Caesar by Miklós Rózsa: This is the first actual score I ever listened from the composer and it still holds a special place in my heart. The re-recording by Bruce Broughton and the Sinfonia of London is exemplary and wonderfully recorded and as ever showcases Rózsa's artistry not just as a film composer but as a composer period. His partly tortured partly ruminative string theme for Brutus, his pompous militaristic march theme for Caesar and various little motifs all seem effortless and inevitable in their construction and interaction which is best displayed in the finale of Caesar Now Be Still where the composer deftly joins the main themes in a magnificent counterpoint development that ever grows in intensity only to suddenly end with a powerful percussion cadence. It might not be overly subtle in its approach but always thoughtful and intricate in its construction and on album it is vivid musical storytelling well worthy of the famous Shakespeare play.

    The Lord Of The Rings: The Unabridged Audiobook

    They should have hired a vocal coach to instruct the actor the proper Tolkien pronunciation for the names in the book. Which is to say the way we Finns pronounce them that actually coincides with the way they are supposed to be pronounced e.g. in Quenya and Sindarin.

    Agreed. I'd certainly upgrade both Goldsmith's and Silvestri's Mummy soundtracks if possible.

    John Williams At The Movies (Dallas Winds)

    I love the spacious recording as well. Martin has such beautiful sound to his playing.
