My review.

I really like JNH ambitious thematic orchestral efforts like Dinosaur, Waterworld or Atlantis. If Maleficent harkens back to those this score will be among my 2014 highlights.

:thumbup:

The song is good too. Really, really looking forward to this.

Demonstrates one thing - it's not the composer, but the director who is the problem. Interesting that it's a visual effects guy turned director who gets a real score from JNH.

I'd actually bump that up to the producers and the studio system.

The song is okay. Nothing offensive, and only works for me because it utilizes Howard's theme.

Lord you gave them ears but they don't listen.

The song utilizes the 1959 original Disney song based on a Tchaikovsky's ballet SLEEPING BEAUTY. How can anyone even vaguely familiar with JNH and his way of writing mistake this for a JNH theme?

These samples...wow...JNH is no longer doing bland wallpaper? :o

Rejoice, rejoice! Let the bells ring!

This is indeed shaping up to be a fine year for film music.

Dumb Koray is dumb!

I'm not talking about the main melody that she sings along with, but the small bits of chorus that pop up in the song. I shouldn't have called it a theme, but it's quite similar to Howard's main choral idea in the score. Or maybe I'm just misremembering things.

It was pointed out at FSM that director Robert Stromberg is the brother of William Stromberg, of the Tribute Film Classics re-recording group.

A solid B. It's hampered a bit by the lack of a strong theme and some generic action music, but the more colorful impressionistic pieces make up for it. Listen to SUITE, MALEFICENT FLIES, THE CHRISTENING and THE QUEEN OF FAERIELAND for the score's best features.
