Popular Post Morlock 9 Posted August 30, 2008 Popular Post Share Posted August 30, 2008 The title says it all. I was just going through some of my Powell collection, and I was taken by just how good so much of it is. Just about all of the scores of his I've heard retain their excitment and interest time and time again. I won't say his scores are perfect or perfectly consistant...but there's more interesting music in your average Powell album than just about any other composer working today. No one can touch him action-wise nowadays. The man actually uses strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion in ways that sound individually conceived. He can have 5 different interesting things going on at once. And he can still bring it all together for a splendid moment of the big theme.Along with Desplat and Giacchino, Powell's the most exciting voice to be introduced to film music in my life as a film-score collector. Just needed to say that yet again. Tangiers from The Bourne Ultimatum by John Powell (my favorite action cue of the past couple of year, hands down) Kasey Kockroach, The Illustrious Jerry and Evanus 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
