  1. As you all know, and if the thread title doesn't clue you in, I don't like Thomas Newman's music. It's all ambient and sparkly but it rarely has that underbelly of substance that I want from my music. It's part of what I like about John Williams. Even in his most cheery and sparkly pieces, he writes with a darker (almost sad?) voice, a fullness, and weight you don't get elsewhere. It's the same case with Jerry Goldsmith. Yet you all seem to love this Snoozeman fellow. I can't seem to connect the line from Williams fandom to Snoozeman fandom. So your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to introduce me to Thomas Newman pieces that clarify that connection. I like one Thomas Newman album throughout: Skyfall. Outside of that, I like the track "Rock Island, 1931" from Road to Perdition. I particularly love the heavy string writing following the ethnic stuff in that track. And that's it. I know, not much to work with.
