Interesting interview with JG about religion and its influence on his life and music:     Source: http://jewishjournal.com/old_stories/1351/

Regardless of how it's regarded (by whom, anyway), it's certainly an ace score, intelligently conceived and helping the movie immeasurably in the poetry department. Goldsmith wistful waltz elevates th

Fantastic arrangement and performance of Gremlins 2 end credits suite!

There was a boot of it (missing two or three of these tracks, I think), but this is MUUUUCH better. And it’s a freakin’ great score. Can’t wait for this set. Happy to get the Broughton score too...if he interpolates Goldsmith’s fantastic theme this would be an early example of him doing so long before Soarin’!

 

Anyways I’ve already ordered of course. :D

LLL is on FIRE so far this year with the Goldsmith premieres (this and Archer, which had never been released before even as a boot). I hope Intrada jumps into the fray soon with their own...

The Goldsmith version is the first version that Ridley Scott originally had, the Tangerine Dream version came later for the US release

I'm curious about Legend, when I watched that film it was the first version including that horrible synth score by Tangerine Dreams.

 

I just.purchased the bluray, it contains the US theatrical release and the director's cut.

POLTERGEIST

THE LAST RUN

LOGANS RUN

ALL good scores but expendable in my case.

How well regarded is the score to Papillon? @Yavar Moradi?

 

I'm not Yavar, but I consider it very highly regarded, as is the film itself...and surprisingly popular. I remember a few years ago, I had to take the subway daily. And every morning for a long period of time, a street musician was playing the PAPILLON theme on his accordion.

Papillon is well-regarded, but I don't hear it singled out as Jerry Goldsmith's finest. I see that it ranks among his better scores sure, but not at the top, not top 3.

 

Chinatown is easily the most well-regarded Goldsmith score - a score that is more well-regarded than any John Williams score, I think, certainly among luminaries and thoughtful critics.

 

For example, Thomas Newman and Ryuichi Sakamoto both prefer Chinatown over any John Williams score. David Lynch has named it his #1 film score of all time. David Fincher and Steven Soderbergh has singled it out for praise as well. Bruce Broughton's two favourite film composers are Alex North and Jerry Goldsmith: Broughton has named Chinatown his #1 Goldsmith score as well. John Adams has praised it too. Alex Ross, Terry Teachout and Tim Page - three of the most prominent critics of the world named it as a favourite film score as well and also prefer it over any Williams score. It is really rare to see any score get that kind of acclaim from so many notable and thoughtful people.

 

I don't think Williams has a score with that level of acclaim unless I am missing something.

 

And I certainly do not mean what most of the common folk listen to - it is not a popularity contest, I mean what thoughtful critics and luminaries think.

Maybe not at the very top, but I've usually seen it alongside the other critically acclaimed Goldsmith scores, also by people who aren't necessarily film score fans - it's CHINATOWN, PATTON, PLANET OF THE APES, ALIEN, BASIC INSTINCT. And PAPILLON. They seem to have the biggest 'clout' in terms of artistic signficance. Not so often THE OMEN, STAR TREK, GREMLINS or other more popular fare.
