I think the majority of people here do like action scores, but I don't think the majority of people here only like action scores.

 

You know me, I never generalize!

It was the world premiere of Skyfall in concert at the Royal Albert Hall this evening and the audience was treated to two Newmans (or should I say Newmen?) for the price of one.  The score was conduct

This should be on the JWFan t-shirt!

I haven't gotten around to Skyfall yet, but I've always loved Finding Nemo, WALL-E, and A Series of Unfortunate Events. There's just so much style and heart in those 3 scores. ASOUE in particular is j

This is the flaw with Bespin's method.

 

Com'on, it's just a way to ignite a discovery. It gives only some hints from where to start. It's not a religion. It's a forum about film music, so we talk about film music...

 

And I would add that, strangely, in the last weeks you seem to have suddenly "discovered" some of my recent suggestions (and finally purchased some early JW CDs I promote since a long time, yeah!).

 

Well, that's the goal of this forum.

 

We promote film music... and we lose money.

You act like I was personally insulting you, but I was just making an observation about your process!

I don't know what this means.  I've known forever I "should" own Fiddler on the Roof, but never got around to it because I don't like musicals and don't expect to listen to it much.  I own the FSM Checkmate / Rhythm in Motion, and known for a long time the later CD versions sound better, and always intended to grab them eventually, along with M Squad.  Same thing with Jazz Beginnings, I've known forever it "should" be in my collection, and just hadn't gotten around to it yet.

 

These also were collectively the last things I needed to add to my collection that I could find for reasonable prices.  I still need Eiger Sanction and Thomas and the King too, but those are expensive.

Looking at my words again to be sure, I can't understand how you could come to that conclusion ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Sorry you misinterpreted my intention!

From an ebay screenshot, looks like the FYC has a handful fewer tracks than the OST, so probably yes. It's a very fragmented listen.

 

It seems only the songs are missing.

Already ordered:

  • Shawshank Redemption - Expanded edition
  • Saving Mr. Banks Deluxe Edition
  • Passengers (oh it seems this one is already rare, I don't know why?)
  • Skyfall OST

 

Bridge of Spies currently unavailable? What???

 

Once you've explored the 'popular' ones be sure to check out some of the lesser-mentioned scores of his, particularly - as Thor said - from the 80s and 90s.

 

THE MAN WITH ONE RED SHOE

LESS THAN ZERO

MEN DON'T LEAVE  ----  (somebody please release this officially, it's superb!)

FRIED GREEN TOMATOES

WHISPERS IN THE DARK

JOSH AND S.A.M. 

THE WAR

HOW TO MAKE AN AMERICAN QUILT

OSCAR AND LUCINDA

 

... are all great.

I have it.

Another " collection of cues" ....with wrong track numbers.

I bought it for the cover.

I reprogrammed it to make it semi-listenable.

Get the ost.

It has the two tracks co- written by Peter Gabriel

( included on PIXAR GREATEST)

ASOUE in particular is just brimming with personality, and his music really fits with the tone of the film and the book series.

 

Absolutely agreed. I adore that score and would love an expansion. There's some nice missing cues in the film and some more things that were recorded, but not used.

Any thoughts about Less than Zero (1987)?

 

I'm a fan of the soundtrack and the movie since many years, especially because of the haunting closing song of the movie, sung by Roy Orbison (an original song written by Glenn Danzig for the movie), but I don't really recall the score...
