James Newton Howard's Defiance

Recommended Posts

I'm liking some of it. It's interesting. He must have done some research, as he's quoting a Hebrew hymn in the main titles. The action stuff isn't really doing it for me at the moment...but I have a feeling that this one will grow on me.

Wow, I'd missed that. Thanks for posting! JNH is one of my favorite composers, and there seems to be quite an amount of free music there. Now I know what I will do when my Indy set doesn't arrive today.

Okay so I got this into my iTunes. I was confused when people were talking about tracks and stuff, well because this version is 28 tracks. 1 hour of music. On Amazon, the OST only has 15 tracks, but there are no track times up. So... could this possibly have a ton more music than the actual release?

I LOVE this score. It's like The Village meets Schindler's List. Maybe that's a really shallow analogy, but it seems appropriate. And it is, believe me, high praise. This is making me very excited for the film.

Best JNH score in years!

I will say...once again, James Newton Howard manages to sneak in a magical moment....you know...not just any magical moment...but with that ethereal transcendent quality.

How does he do it...every time?

I ask again...

Is "Tanks" supposed to be music? :)

It's supposed to be a sleeping pill.


I love this score. There's definitely more music in the media kit, I did a calculation a few days ago: the streaming music (same as the CD) is 45 mins. The media kit is 1 hr, 5 mins, so there's about 20 minutes of music, at least, not on the CD. Depends whether the kit is the complete score or not.

I'll probably buy this and fill in the gaps with the mp3s.
