LETS TALK MUSIC!!!!!!!

Whats the general view on Micheal Giacchino? Lost and MI3 scores are great. Alieas just got better and better. And everyone went mad for Incredibles score!

I think he could grow to be a modern great! I'm hoping!

What ya'll think? :-)

1) You use Caiman U.S.A. too? They're my go-to importers, I've bought tons of stuff from them (mostly very cheap albums). You're right, they can take a while, but I normally order stuff from them right before I go on holiday/away, so that it's sitting there on my doorstep by the time I get home.

2) I love Herrmann too. I'll admit I haven't got any of his stuff on CD, but I'll happily listen to his scores on the DVD menus all day. In fact I think I once fell asleep with the Vertigo score left playing...which explains why I dreamt of dyeing my hair blonde and marrying Jimmy Stewart I guess.


Oops! Only just seen this! Yep - I do use Caiman quite a lot. I'm still bitter that they took 6 weeks to get a DJ Shadow album out to me, but I can't deny that I love them to bits. Usually stuff arrives within 10 days, to be fair. Good company - highly recommend it to any UKers

Vertigo - one of my favourite themes of all time. I'm sure Elfman is paying homage to it in his Hulk score, but I've never heard this confirmed. They sound similar to me though.....

Yesterday had Primal Fear on TV which reminded me how much I liked that soundtrack. Or at least the five minutes I watched when Emergency Room had a commerical break.

Is it me, or is the soundtrack to Casino Royale the best one of David Arnold's so far? It actually sounds like a real movie, not just a Bond one. There's actually real drama and emotion in it. I wonder if this one channels classic Bond and John Barry the most out of his Arnold's work. Some parts of the score are so uncanny John, er, Barry!

Oh, and African Rundown takes me right back to that construction sight and crane destructive footchase at the beginning.

Right now, I AM James Bond!!!

And there's not a hotdamn thing you Putz Zoners can do about it, is there?!

Personally I think that the LOTR Fellowship soundtrack is amazing.... I could go into it but I'm sure that it's fairly obvious.

Also, and I know that it's a TV show but it's one of my favourites... BSG Series 2 is currently on my MP3 player. Although some tracks sound a bit cheap and synthesised the overall score is fantastic. Military drums mixed with primal percussion. A truly genius and simple idea that has been created beautifully by Bear McCreary and Richard Gibbs. Well worth a listen. I look forward to season 3's CD, with the Cylon basestars piano tracks.

Just saying....

For me, there's 2 scores that stand out above all.

1. Conan. By Basil Poledouris. The thunderous score made this world come alive. Future filmmakers take note: THIS is how to do the score to an action movie set in a world of swords and loincloths.

2. Dawn of the Dead(original): By Goblin, et al. I LOVE the music to this movie. Very genuinely haunting stuff, including the oboe part when Peter and Roger are driving the trucks, and the opening score, which isn't overwhelming like SOME music seems to be these days. The score to me was like an unseen character, which is how it's supposed to be. The score established the haunting theme of the situation, like a dark cloud that was threatening to swallow up mankind at any moment.

My only complaint about either of these is that I can't seem to find them on CD ANYWHERE. At least not affordably. Especially DOTD.

OK, I gotta ask this since re: music online(aside from buying from ebay or amazon), I'm completely unknowledgable.

What sites are best for music downloading legally?

I know I know I'm not exactly new to the internet, but after reading story after story about how kids, grandparents, and college students get raped by the RIAA for illegal downloads, getting music via the internet has terrified me. I don't want to get a song off of some site, put it on my pc, then have shocktroops kick down my door and beat me senseless with batons. Maybe I'm paranoid, maybe I'm living in a previous century, but that's my own demon and I'm working to exorcise it.

So, can anyone help me re: this?

The basestar music is really good.

The thing I don't like about the BSG music is when it goes unneccessarily gaelic and twee.

The 'It's A Fight' rap music sounds pretty good actually. I really wanna here though is that Rocky Music at the end ofthe album, humourously taking the mickey out of the quote from the films. "I jarst warnah say woarn theeng!!" followed by some sc-sc-scratching. Man, the Itunes samples that I heard sounds hilarious!!!

The Rocky Balboa soundtrack was just a retread of the first film.

Me and You and Everyone We Know by Micheal Andrews


...of the Donnie Darko OST, and collaborator of Gary Jules, on the "Mad World" cover, respectively. To give you a feel for the territory involved.

One of my favourite records, soundtrack or no. It hurts me to share it, knowing you'll llikely never hear it...


Also listening to Henry Mancini's A Touch Of Evil OST, at the moment.

Even though the film is melancholy, skewed and crooked, the soundtrack, and the similarly textured faux-memories it evokes at the back of your mind, still somehow makes you want to surrender to it all, and indefinately inhabit the world anyway...

Genius.

Just heard one of the tracks from American Beauty on another movie's trailer.
Man, that's a great soundtrack. I had to arrange some of it for a percussion ensemble years ago. That was seriously a ton of fun dissecting those parts and transcribing them.

Whilst watching Unfaithful last night and in between screaming out loud how much of a FIT SEX GODDESS DIANE LANE IS DAGMAMNIT!!!! - it's music for one tiny moment hit a note from Life Is Beautiful and got me singing the score in my head.

The main theme definitely fits the movie's title and is very very sweeping and quite QUITE beautiful all on it's own. Whenever I play it in my head I always imagine no other joy in life being better than me telling people to shut the hell up - as I compose Nicola Piovani's Oscar winning score by myself in front of an appreciating clapping high class audience. Then as I turn to face them I know my life is complete and that all the Zoners can kill me now.

Also make me very sad when I think of the closing shot to the film and how it ended. If ever I was an actor that needed to cry all I need to do is put that main song on an earpiece and have it hidden away.

Not that it would happen though, as I'm so hard and tough and don't cry that I only get sent Ramboish style parts.

Anyway, here are some samples down this page

You are correct, and no I haven't.... that's a mighty fine idea Pacino! I'll see if I can find a copy, it took me AGES to find BSG, but I hear good things... espically considering that he just won "Visions in Sound" #1 Soundtrack Album of 2006, Battlestar Galactica: Season 2. The man's on a roll.

See I told ya'll it was good :D

Bear McReary is also in a avant-jazz band called 17 Billion Miles of DNA. Funnily enough I have no real interest in listening to this, even though I love Jazz.

EDIT: Oh, you can get the Rest Stop Soundtrack on iTunes... all i need now is an IPOD. :roll: Stupid apple...

From what I remember from the movie (which I think I watched like a week ago, or so), the soundtrack was fine...it worked well for a horror/thriller...

It didn't jump out at you and say: "Hi! I'm a horror film soundtrack" So it worked.

The film was actually a little better than I expected.
Nothing amazing - but definitely better than the Black Christmas and The Hitcher remakes...

Worth checking out for a couple of nice (albeit quite cliched) moments...

And for some good times featuring Joey "Blossom" Lawrence getting shot in the head - twice - from point blank range...

Yeah...it's pretty sweet actually...

I won't get into the specifics of it, but he gets shot in the head once...graphically...then suddenly opens his eyes and screams and is still partially alive...he screams and freaks and yells "Shoot me again!!!" So that he can die...then BOOM!!! Another Head Shot!!! Brain matter, and flesh and skull and blood splatter all over the place...

Like I said, it's actually better than quite a few straight-to-dvd flicks...as well as an improvement (for the most part) over a good number of the theatrical horror films...

My personal favorite score is "Punch Drunk Love" by Jon Brion, even though everything he does is awesome (Though, I havent seen The Break Up). I find this to be his best score and my personal favorite. That score is absolutely beautiful and makes the movie, in my opinion.

I believe a very underrated score was Nathan Johnsons score for Brick. That music just gets you in the mood. Right when you hear the first notes of the theme, you are hooked.

Yeah, the Brick soundtrack is good but I always noticed it a little bit too much in the wrong times, not a good point in some films. It may have been the mix, or my laptop but it seems unbalanced compared to the sfx.

Yeh the Brick score is excellent. It was done on wineglasses in a flat in bournemouth.
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

Actually looking at that list, I don't agree with 75% of the picks. The DaVinci Code was flat and uninteresting; Pulse was completely unmemorable (really, it was! I've seen it two or three times recently and I can't remember it for the life of me);The Nativity Story I've never heard of but I went to a catholic school with nuns so i get the gist of it....

hummm.... and I use to like Sound and Vision...

Roving Mars is predictable too...it's exactly what you would expect from documentary about space :roll:

It's weird, I watched Brick on HBO literally 6 hours ago and thought the same thing. Or maybe it's not that weird. Err... but basically, I agree.

The DaVinci Code had some really interesting choral pieces though, Kyrie for the Magdalene was quite good. Much better than the movie deserved!
