  1. Jurassic Park by John Williams: This is the score that made me a John Williams fan back in 1993 and even after all these years it still has not lost its magic. I love it!
  2. Happy Belated Birthday @Not Mr. Big! Also Happy Birthday @John Takis!!!
  3. Sounds like animation scoring Horner combined with the obligatory Elfman temp track references. I'll have to listen to the whole album now.
  4. Curiously this is a Horner score I have never heard in any form. Time to check it out to hear if it warrants a purchase in complete form.
  5. Chicken Run by Harry Gregson-WIlliams and John Powell: It has been a while since I listened to this and had forgotten how fun score this is and also so very genuine in its enthusiasm, emotion, melodies and of course kazoos!
  6. Well that too. But I found it a rather stuffy and play-it-safe biopic.
  7. It is such a fantastic album with some of my favourite concerts works from Williams on it, the Cello Concerto, Elegy for Cello and Orchestra and Heartwood. Yo-Yo Ma's playing is as always technically impeccable but what's more important very moving and emotionally resonant. I would love to have Volume 2 with music from Williams' film scores arranged by the composer for Yo-Yo Ma much like the gorgeous Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone album.
  8. Sadly not very. The director is known for some very average to awful fare and despite the first rate Finnish actors in the leading roles, Sibelius is a rather stiff period picture that plays it entirely safe and faithfully follows nearly all of the major anecdotal events of his life until his death. The end result is hardly a biopic masterpiece. Serviceable. The music is truly the best thing about it.
  9. Who would have thought he would eventually score his own biopic?
  10. Lincoln (OST+FYC album combo) by John Williams Seven Years in Tibet by John Williams Nixon by John Williams
  11. Yeah I have combined both into a longer great listening experience. Although I did edit the OST tracks into their approximate film sequence and separated some of the combined pieces.
  12. I have always been a score fan more than a fan of songs used in movies so nope, I never bought any. I used to be very annoyed to find that they had ordered the "songs only" version of a soundtrack release to our local CD store instead of the score album back in the day when I used to buy my music from brick and mortar stores. And I don't own that "song album" for that Sibelius movie. Although I do own the music used in the film on several classical music recordings.
  13. I actually do not own any purely song compilation soundtracks. Soundtrack albums with score and songs yes but not a single album with only songs or "songs from and inspired by the film".
  14. Looks like that despite the relative brevity of the score in the film, Williams was writing quite a lot of different versions and variations on the same cues.
