  1. If you watched Battlestar Galactica or The Sarah Connor Chronicles, you might recognize this guy. I think he does a great job. Anyone else buy his albums for Battlestar Galactica? He also does an admirable theme for Sarah Connor Chronicles but that's unreleased.
  2. Hello! Lately, it has become very difficult for a large number of JWFanners who enjoy this score and want to discuss it to do so in the existing score thread. This is largely due to a steady stream of negative opinions being posted in that thread, often the same criticisms over and over again. This has led to some JWFanners feeling like they cannot even post their thoughts at all, as they will only see them picked apart and made to feel like they have to defend their opinions. To combat this problem, I am creating this appreciation thread, where those of us who like the score, and want to discuss it freely without the haters ruining the flow of conversation, can do so! Any posts that go against the spirit of this thread will be delt with swiftly! Nobody is being censored here, the original thread still exists! Those of us who like the score, have at it!

  7. Please correct any errors we make! @MonoverantusPlease post your transcriptions here too so we have a single place to go! A quick transcription of Shore's theme. Does anyone see any mistakes or would notate anything differently? I'm pretty unsure about the 2/4 time signature right now, but it looks and feels better than 4/4!
  8. I noticed something cool during last night's new Galactica. Might've just been imagining things, but it seemed to me that at least part of the battle that consumed the last two acts was heavily influenced by, if not a direct homage to, the Battle of Yavin. Mainly the control/command room, the distorted voices over the radio (this was the one that made me realize it), and even some of the cockpit shots when Vipers were shot down. I know I might be the only one here who saw this, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

  11. Interesting pairing eh? But they remind me very much of each other. They both can write the big boomy scores that studios come to expect these days, and yet they do it in a much more sophisticated fashion than these types of scores are written with. McCreary relies more on ethnic instrumentation to deliver that big sound (with the heavy taiko drums, etc.), where John Powell implements more electronics. To me, John Powell still sounds very RCP, but McCreary has developed a sound signature all his own. John Powell I can still predict the next note on, McCreary takes familiar ideas into new directions. I'd honestly say that McCreary's music is probably the most surprising to me these days in terms of how well I can predict what direction a melody or theme will take. And that's something rare. Vote!
