War Horse by a length over Tintin (which sounds like a full album of the Knights Bus).

 

Super 8 sounds exactly like Star Trek 2009.

My favourite score of 2011 is JANE EYRE (Dario Marianelli) -- his best score to date, IMO.

 

Of the poll options, it's a fairly close race between DRIVE and WAR HORSE, but ultimately I'll pick WAR HORSE of those.

As wonderful and refined and perhaps "objectively better" (if there is such a thing) War Horse is - Tintin is the closest we've come to a JW pirate score, and that puts it in the top spot for me.

Meh, I'm not much of a fan of this one. For me, it's the weakest PotC score ever. And the OST is truly awful, with just a few suites and a lot of remixed versions of them. Thank goodness the bootlegs exist ;)

Tintin is one of Williams' masterpieces - a score so ambitious, so overflowing with themes, at such extraordinary tempi and nimbleness, such complexity. For sheer virtuoso technical accomplishment, very scores of the past decade match it - certainly not at this scale. Williams just totally went all out for this one.

 

War Horse is absolutely amazing too - though a little bit fractured into sections.
