  1. I got goosebumps listening to this. It's rather darker than the original in parts, but a wonderful new interpretation of the classic score. "Stampede" is amazing!
  2. Loving the action music and all the variations of the main theme. Definitely seems to be one of the more memorable scores of the year. Eager to hear how it plays in the film.
  3. Another sadly overlooked gem by him - The Hundred Foot Journey. I liked the movie a lot too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HisbMQ5uKg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t46cQ5Pnc7w https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PVCGfAxejY
  4. Unfortunately no. I really like the love theme and the elephant fight music from that score, and all the Arabic styled cues. We were promised score releases of scores like Mangal Pandey, Maryan, Sivaji: The Boss and Mr. Rahman himself mentioned working on score albums of Kochadaiyaan and 2.0, but they never happened.
  5. The score release of Enthiran was truly a dream come true for me. I had nearly given up hope after all the false promises made in regards to his Indian score releases here. The label had mentioned working on the score album back in 2010. I'm just glad it happened at last. There are so many hidden gems in his repertoire that it's difficult to even start mentioning them. I wish someday a film music label tries looking into releasing them. Mangal Pandey: The Rising (DVD rip)- An orchestral suite of his (mostly unreleased) scores played recently during the audio launch of theEnthiran sequel "2.0" - One of my favourite non-film works, the Lord of the Rings musical - "The Flying Lotus" symphonic suite -
  6. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, maestro Williams. May you be blessed with all the happiness and joy in the world, good health and everything you wish for.
  7. Thanks a lot for the wonderful analysis of this beautiful score. It's one of my favourites from recent years too.
  8. I like the score overall. The main issue for me is the same as with a lot of modern blockbuster scores - the main theme feels rather anonymous and doesn't have any particular distinguishable identity. However, the score is very enjoyable in terms of orchestration and writing, both in the huge action cues and softer parts. The classic Batman theme in the final battle track is great! So is the new interpretation of HZ's Wonder Woman theme. And "Aquaman in Atlantis" has some great choral moments. I hope the score will grow with more listens, and after watching the film.
  9. This is great to know and the score will certainly be very interesting to listen to. Both the original film and score are my all-time favourites. Looking forward to this.
  10. This is indeed a great release. For a score recorded so long ago, the restoration is very well done. I'm eagerly looking forward to Beauty & The Beast and hope the remaining Alan Menken classics get Legacy treatment too, including Hercules (one of his most overlooked scores IMHO). Hopefully Mulan and Toy Story 2 as well.
  11. Absolutely amazing news. Needless to say, this is now one of the most highly anticipated scores of next summer.
  12. Spider-Man 1 & 2 by Danny Elfman. I'm eagerly looking forward to his Justice League score and re-visiting a lot of my favourite albums by him. Although I like all the Spidey scores so far (MG's theme for the upcoming movie is alright too), for me Mr. Elfman's Main Titles music will always be at the top. Helps that I have a nostalgic attachment to these two movies as well. I remember my teacher in 8th class putting on some of the first movie in our computer lab during free hours, and I loved the Parade Attack music so much. This theme 1:43 into the main titles is just so gorgeous. I hope to see expanded releases in the future.
  13. Compressed and brickwalled music sounds dreadful to me even on smartphones and iPods, the systems for which it apparently was mastered for. I never liked the loudness of the Jurassic Park 20th anniversary release on home speakers or headphones alike, while the La-La Land release sounds so pleasant and soothing. Sadly there's hardly any new score release these days with proper dynamic range, with rare exceptions like Theodore Shapiro's Captain Underpants album.
  14. I watched the film last week, which was good but it took me two viewings to follow the story. The score was beautiful, especially the Thunderbird theme really shone on its own and was truly splendid accompanying that scene. Unfortunately the action cues seemed to be mixed a bit too low. I really hope JNH scores the rest of the franchise as well.
