    Williams vs. LotR

    I find Howard Shore's action music in LotR a lot better paced and placed than Williams late action music. I just find that Shore is perfect in placing the right notes at the right time, so consequently I find his music more thoroughly composed; if not in numbers, then certainly emotionally and in terms of how a musical arc is established. A piece like The Siege Of Gondor, particulary the beginning (Ash And Smoke on the OST), may, purely compositionally, not be on par with Williams' complexity, and yet, how it builds, how it is conceived as a piece of dramatic music and how it is placed in the film, it is vastly superior to the last ten years of John Williams action music.

  2. That would be bold! And relevant as well! And it will have a brooding Howard Shore score to accompany all of this! Oh wait... Karol Bowed cymbals depicting mental anguish for the win!

  3. I've been meaning to listen to this. I thought it would be heavily laden with synths (like Legend which I thoroughly disliked) but here the synths are nicely balanced with the orchestra and it's does not bombard you with too much noisy strange synth sounds. It's perfectly listenable and one of JG's more beautiful light sounding music.

  4. 3 Steps To Success: 1. Grow Up 2. Get a sense and´╗┐ appreciation for musical mastery 3. Read program A Night At The Movies does not mean the "classics" are being played. Catch Me If You Can? Yeah, NOBODY saw that movie ... Star Wars and Indiana Jones are being played to DEATH. Don't blame John Williams for your expectations and idiotic fanboy quibbles. John Williams is a composer, not a theme park attraction.

  6. I dunno, I'm bored of his greatest hits too, but I'd rather have those than an hour of Potter music (with fucking annoying narration, no less). I'd be pretty pissed off if my one and only opportunity to see John Williams in concert was dominated by boring Harry Potter cues. Which begs the question - why didn't these fools check the programme out beforehand?

  7. And to quote Brian Blessed I too would like to ask these whiners:

    Upcoming Films

    Hearing guys like Marc Streitenfeld poke around in the dark on a film like Prometheus, while Don Davis doesn't get work is seriously depressing.
