    I once created an iTunes playlist with Goldsmith 'setpiece tracks' (both action and less action-oriented setpieces).  It seems to have disappeared, but I can assemble it again and take a screen grab.

     

    [Edit: Here's one, quickly assembled. There are more to be added, but this is a great start. By setpiece, I mean tracks that aren't main or end titles, but action sequences that almost work as their own independent composition:]

    I would add The Hijacking from AFO, that cue literally got me into Jerry.

  2. What way do you prefer?

     

    I'm really want to start physical collection, but problem here that I don't have that much money plus shipping to my country is problematic so I'm stick with digital because this is the only way for me now, unfortunately. 

     

    And another question, how do you prefer to listen to the scores after the first listen?

     

    I mean for example from start to beginning, minus alternate versions/film versions, shuffle and e.t.c.

     

    Do you like to make playlists?

    For me the most "playlist-able" materials are middle to long action cues since I'm a big fan of stuff like that.

    Those are very broad parameters. I would also need to know what style we're talking about. I can glean from the composers you mention that you're primarily looking for orchestral action scores, perhaps? Also, while 'action' is considered a genre, you can also have scores in other genres that have a busy soundscape, be it westerns or fantasy films or sci fis of whatever. Do they count too?

     

    A few off the top of my head that are orchestral, have a thematic base, are not by any of the composers you mention, have lengthy bombastic tracks and that are action-oriented in sound:

    Yeah I've meant orchestral scores, any genres count, thank you so much!

  4. I'm looking for action scores with good themes and not dull underscore. It will be great if it includes couple or more lengthy bombastic tracks.

    All composers, except Davis, Debney, Silvestri, Elfman, Arnold, Shore, Powell and JW because I've listened all from them with this criterias.

    Revenge of the Sith *really* applies the Emperor's theme in some fantastic dramatic settings, particularly here with what is surely one of the heaviest, most stretched out statements in the saga. Also interesting to note that it flows into some Ludlow-esque strings at 1:52.

    Yeah, ROTS use of the theme is very good too. Second after ROTJ of course.
