  1. Nothing happenned in the 90's then?
  2. I'm not saying that the ratio of crap to truly good scores isn't badly skewed, but that has always been true in every genre of music. The only reason that classical music seems to be so much better is the fact that we haven't held on to the crap music that was composed back then. Classics are called "classics" for a reason. They are the few instances that have survived out of all the music ever composed, and they did so precisely because they were so much better than all the crap surrounding them.
  3. http://ingame.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/04/01/6385237-battlestar-composer-aims-for-holy-grail-of-game-music-in-socom-4 Interesting article on Bear's score to SOCOM 4. The clips sound promising.
  4. I don't think any of us purpose to only enjoy one score from a given composer.
  5. And Species, Hellraiser II, The Fly II, The Grudge 2, and The Uninvited. Sure, they're all horror/sci-fi films, but Young's exceptionally talented in the horror genre. While we're at it. Untraceable is quite a good score as well.
  6. Funny, that's one of the few Kamen scores I don't enjoy. Try Dark City. Agreed. And I'll add the following (note that some of these may possibly be because I have not heard enough else from the composers yet): Nick Glennie-Smith, We Were Soldiers Mark Mancina, Twister Carlo Siliotto, The Punisher Aaron Zigman, The Bridge to Terabithia Can trilogies count as one score? If so, Don Davis, The Matrix Howard Shore, The Lord of the Rings *ducks*
  7. For a brief second there, I thought the thread title read "Rest in peace Michael Giacchino."
  8. I use etaoinsrhld, but yeah, that's pretty much the way to go.
  9. I got 69/53. Some were instantly recognizable. Others I had never even heard of but figured out purely by playing hangman well. That was actually one of the few that I knew instantly without a doubt what it was.
  10. Not surprising given an invalid question.
  11. How to Train Your Dragon Knight and Day Voyage of the Dawn Treader Alice in Wonderland Tron: Legacy
  12. Considering that Last Crusade is my favorite Williams score, period, this wasn't a hard choice.
  13. Agreed. It is definately a Williams score, but it does take a lot of cues from Patton.
  14. Only one comes to mind, but Midway sounds a lot like Patton.
  15. Absolutely agreed. I would consider it one of his best, if not his single best. The 1–2 minute track thing really isn't a problem, as they all flow together as a unified whole.
  16. The surveys usually aren't worth it given the points per time spent ratio. The search engine seems to be truly randomized for winning. Some days I'll win as many as ten times. Other days I won't get anything at all. There are five "free" points you can get every day. One is just for having the toolbar installed on your browser. One is just for visiting the survey page every day, even without doing any of them. One is for answering the daily poll question. And the final two are for looking through the no obligation offers (just keep clicking "skip"). It just takes me a few seconds each morning when I open my computer to go through these. Also, watch for the codes they put out. I follow http://sbcodez.com/ which lets me know each time a new code is out.
  17. From http://swagbucks.com/ go to the "Earn" drop-down on the toolbar at the top of the page.
  18. Yep, still keeping up with it myself. Great stuff!
  19. Just so you know, that track is definately the highlight of the score. The rest is okay but nothing to get too exited about.
  20. Great piece! I listen to it while speed-solving sudoku; makes me go much faster.
  21. I'm a little behind on The Cape, but I just watched episode 8, and the score is fantastic! Bear really outdid himself on this one. I could definately hear the Shirley Walker influence here, but in a good way, not just blatant copying.
