    The Doctor Who Thread.....

    I spoke to Ben Foster on Facebook, to see if Murray is indeed leaving the show, only to discover that Ben hasn't been involved in Doctor Who since the end of series 9! I wonder if he was the driving force behind getting albums released?

    The Doctor Who Thread.....

    I've been feeling like there's something strange in the water with regards to Gold. I'd heard that the recent arrival of a baby into his family had refocused his priorities, which is why there hasn't been a new music release in a long time. If he is moving on, I hope whoever fills his enormous shoes will carry over some of the villain identities Gold has created, such as the Cybermen theme. The obvious choice is Ben Foster, Gold's orchestrator and conductor, but a composer in his own right. However, if a total shake up is what they're looking for then music will be an obvious way to go with a different tone for the show. I'd love David Arnold to get a crack in full melodic mode, but I suspect he will be involved in any upcoming Moffat/Gatiss productions and also strongly hinted at returning to Bond in the near future.
  3. So if I was to assemble an end credits edit for my album (since Hope really needs to go into the end titles), what materials would I use?
  4. It's from an Australian media store, JB hifi - I can't verify its legitimacy, but they are usually on the ball. They often post DVD covers long before anywhere else.
  5. Just tried again by attaching the image.
  6. The Rogue One cover art - I thought I posted it, can you not see it?
  7. I just found this on an Australian website...
  8. I feel there might be the smallest, teensiest chance that they could ask John Williams to do this. Everything's about nostalgia these days - they might want him to return to recapture the magic of Harry Potter (even though Harry doesn't appear). And it's set in America in the 1920s, a very romantic time. Plus it's a planned trilogy, so the producers (I'm disregarding Yates because what does he know) might want a composer to come in and establish some new themes. And of course The Force Awakens is doing gangbusters and the score will revel in that success. I know it's wishful thinking on my part, but it doesn't seem too far fetched.
  9. So I love the soundtrack. It's one of the better JW listening experiences. The man is a legend and with this score he has revitalized Star Wars. It's nice to hear honest to god character themes again in Star Wars - not the situational themes from the prequels. I'm hoping there's a Kylo Ren concert suite that hasn't been released because that theme gives me chills. This marvelous score hits home how big a crime it was that Williams didn't get to return to Harry Potter.
  10. I'm a bit late to the game on this one, but this could be my favourite Giacchino. It certainly competes with my second favourite - Into Darkness. I'm wondering if someone can tell me what cues make up the end credits. I'm think there are parts of Commitment but I'm not sure. Also, is the finale cue on the album - the flying scene at the very end?

    The Doctor Who Thread.....

    I've only just discovered Doctor Who through the music (which coincided with the start of Series 8) and I'm totally hooked. I love the music and am just curious how long it takes from the end of the series for the music to be released?

    Sherlock (BBC)

    Someone please give Moffat and Gatiss a shot at writing a Bond movie!

    Thomas Newman's Skyfall

    Whilst I am personally underwhelmed by what Newman has delivered (there's a number of moments that approach that feeling of "here it comes - that badass brass moment!", only to then stop dead before that moment actually arrives), I am willing to give it the benefit of matching it with the visuals. I also don't think this is too far off the direction Arnold was heading in with Quantum of Solace. A lot of the percussion sounds similar and some of the quieter moments have what sounds like holdover synth sounds from Arnold's library. The action isn't too bad, but again I was waiting for that "wow" moment the whole album - even Newman's adaptation of the Bond theme in Breadcrumbs stops before it begins. I enjoy this score for what it's worth, but being a huge Arnold fan I can't help but be a little let down. At least, this could pave the way for a triumphant return of Mr Arnold.
