  1. If Wikipedia's wording about the score / blurbs from reviews are to be believed, there's more to this score than just this single theme that is Greenwood's entire presence on this soundtrack release. Hoping for a proper score release, because this is loverly Haven't gotten around to watching this yet, but this is beguiling. Feels like a relative to Britell's Beale Street score.

  3. Jon Brion’s Synecdoche score is great. Crushing.

  7. I love that Powell’s 3 HTTYD scores came out at the very beginning, very middle, and [nearly] very end of the decade. Nice consistent presence
  8. I love thinking about this For me a composer dominates if they produce a maximum intersection of quality and quantity. Only have thought about the past 3.1 decades: 1990s: James Horner (Alan Menken and Thomas Newman are runners up) 2000s: James Newton Howard 2010s: Michael Giacchino & Alexandre Desplat 2020s: Trent Reznor And Atticus Ross (obvs this is subject to change XD)
  9. Love the Angela Morley Watership shoutout
  10. The movie and score have masterful qualities for sure, but the whole package doesn’t totally cohere. The movie cares so much about giving the monsters presence, grandeur, and room to inspire awe, which is still gratifying. The anticipation to the final payoff, and the payoff itself, are A+ great. I don’t think it’s problem was ever a lack of monster action, but of shortage of engaging (and enduring 🤣) characters to fill the gaps (although at least they aren’t ‘98 Godzilla cheeseball).
  11. I think that is absolutely the reason Batiste was hired, but isn’t that appropriate for the film [regardless of quality]? It makes sense that they’d want the music of a fictional black pianist to be written and performed by a real one (The audition scene at the start of the film was apparently directly inspired by Batiste’s own experience). Also, I saw a featurette that shows Batiste performing ‘Epiphany’ by Reznor/Ross, since Joe Gardner plays it in the film. The three composers are seen working together on-site. I think that was the only cue all three worked on together. I think only two pieces performed at the Half Note club in the film are preexisting and that’s it.
  12. Love this ballet dearly. The movie was both supremely emotional and frustrating in equal measure for me (that's Kaufman for you) but this ballet and its place in the story is yearn-central, and it made me melt. I kind of wish they'd do a soundtrack release. There's the Tulsey Town jingle, a main title that's a separate recording of the ballet's first half, and while the rest of the cues are pretty subdued/ambient, they all seem to draw from the ballet.
  13. A bit late to the party, but my favorite original scores from the 2020-2021 awards season: TOP EIGHT: 1. I'm Thinking Of Ending Things - Jay Wadley 2. Mank - Trent Reznor And Atticus Ross 3. Wolfwalkers - Bruno Coulais 4. Wendy - Benh Zeitlin And Dan Romer 5. Soul - Trent Reznor And Atticus Ross, Jon Batiste 6. The Call Of The Wild - John Powell 7. Shirley - Tamar-kali 8. The Witches - Alan Silvestri HONORABLE MENTIONS: - Bad Hair - Kris Bowers - The Assistant - Tamar-kali - Tenet - Ludwig Goransson - Da 5 Bloods - Terence Blanchard MOST ANTICIPATED LISTENS/WATCHES - Minari - Emile Mosseri - Freaky - Bear McCreary - News Of The World - James Newton Howard
  14. Woot! This score is awesome. We need more women of color allowed to make awesome film music anywhere close to mainstream like this By way of non-sequiter, I’m Thinking Of Ending Things FYC or bust. I’m pining for a clean version of that ballet.
  15. This is gross. Probably especially so for POC. I’ve always stuck my nose up at Remote Control re: quality of music, but these work conditions (wherever they happen) make that problem look like pretty small potatoes. This job needs higher pay with paid (and ideally less) overtime, no question.
  16. We'll have to see! Saw a video interview where Pete Docter (director) said they were consciously trying to get away from the symphonic Pixar score sound. That of course doesn't mean that we can't get an overtly emotional score, but Reznor/Ross may also be more interested in teasing out more elusive, plaintive feelings than people are used to with Pixar music. Regardless, if Soul's story and characters are up to snuff (which seems to be the case), I have faith that however Reznor/Ross have chosen to support that story will make sense in context.
  17. Judging from this clip, it might very well be! My understanding is that Jon Batiste is covering the source jazz music (diagetic and non-) for the real-world sequences, and Reznor/Ross are addressing the ethereal nature of the soul worlds. The Reznor/Ross input definitely sounds in-line with their electronic/minimalist work on prior films. What's funny is that according to an interview they did recently, they scored Soul prior to Mank, where they then flexed their symphonic/jazz muscles. I wonder if Pixar would've asked Reznor/Ross to score the entirety of Soul (jazz music included) if they heard their work on Mank ahead of time.

  19. Hell yeah! Lots of guilt with what I left out (I've also seen a lot more movies from the second half of the decade than the first).
