Shame. I'd like to see him invited back to Pixar. Or if Frank Darabont finally decides to direct again. Something interesting.

I now dig this after a few listens, I just think Newman has class, never sounds cheap.  Love the piano riffs. 

Yeah, that sounded surprisingly static. To be fair, I love this kind of ambient Newman, but in smaller doses spread throughout an album, or with some interesting textures overlaid. But I'll wait untill we (hopefully) get a properly assembled album to evaluate further.

Don’t get me wrong, I love “ambient Newman”, and the vast majority of his scores have a dose of that sound in some measure. It’s just a whole album of it is a bit of a drag.

 

I’d rather him stay away from these kind of dour thriller projects because this is always the result, it seems.

 

Nothing on the radar for him soon?
