Michael Giacchino's SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME (2019)

Recommended Posts

That's the bit that always makes me think of this!

 

 

 

(and by association, the Erebor theme!)

I actually agree with this. 

Just listen to Beethoven’s 4th piano concerto. Then you’ll see. That is all. 😉

 

Well, that’s not quite all. JW himself speaks self-deprecatingly about his oeuvre not ever reaching the level of the classical greats. Sure, a lot of that comes from his endearing modesty, and yeah, much of his music is better than a lot of the classical canon, but surely it can’t be argued that (classical) music that can be written to express ideas and truths in a pure form as well as in a programmatic form is not inherently loftier than film music, which is definitionally representational of only filmed stories. I mean, that’s like saying film is the ultimate art form then, if a subservient art like film scoring is better than the musical art form

that spawned it. And that’d be just nuts!

Music > losing my virginity (not that I have a choice)

 

 

Yeah the first time is usually awkward and not too exciting.

I absolutely love the opening suite, particularly the sequence that introduces Mysterio's theme, as it gives me the same vibes and energy as Danny Elfman's Spiderman scores, particularly those fantastic opening cues.

as for Mysterio's theme its very memorable and just really enjoyable to listen to, and I like how it moves from taking a tragic dimension to a more sinister one as the movie progresses.

The movie isn't as good as Homecoming, certainly.

 

The score.... I am still deciding, but leaning towards Homecoming being better.  There's tons of great stuff here but I don't like the love theme as much as Homecoming's, and while Mysterio's material is really cool and The Vulture's theme was so simple and kinda cliched, ultimately I just like it better.

Homecoming doesn't have the same intensity, but it feels more straightforward and wholesome than Far From Home for some reason. Though in Far From Home, Mysterio's Theme takes a not only a more prominent role alongside Spidey's in the score, it too evolves (or devolves) and develops, whereas The Vulture's Theme is singular in its use and is a flat-out villain theme. To be honest, I was more intrigued by Mysterio's Theme than any of the other themes!

Here in Australia, it seems it was a European import based on the disc labels - it's strange why they didn't press any CDs in the US!

I liked the love theme from the first one too but this one works better with this European setting. And Vulture theme is effective but it's basically the same as Thern theme from John Carter.

 

I like the sequel score more. Feels more full-bodied and the action music is better. I really disliked the clinactic cues in Homecoming.

Perhaps a full session leak would sway me.  I really like the first 4 cues of the complete score, none of which are on the OST

Damn, I ordered the disc from amazon uk on Wednesday and it arrived today. 

 

I was a bit worried because there was no seal on the jewel case but it is a cd, manufactured in the EU, (Germany).

 

The booklet unfolds to a mini poster of the front cover. The musicians are listed and also features the normal cd credits.

 

It it also states:  Tracks 4, 10 & 16 interpolate portions of “theme from marvel avengers”.  Written by Alan Silvestri.

What do you mean by "seal on the jewel case"?  My copy from Amazon UK came shrinkwrapped do you mean like a sticker or something?
