Perhaps the single greatest review of all time.   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 (8:08 p.m.) 
• Now Playing: LOST: Season 4 (Michael Giacchino)  

I laughed, I cried, I felt overjoyed that someone is exposing these hacks for what they are. This is the most entertaining thing I have read in a LONG time. Kudos to you CC, this is nothing short of fantastic.

I also don't think this can be too far off of what actually happened.

You know its really about time he ripped into media ventures at full value. Maybe someone there might actually read it and take its ethics home.

LOL I must agree with you. I think he finally took out all his anger and frustration on MV on this score. Good old CC, this is probably one of his best!
Look at the criticism it is already recieving!

I can tell you one thing, it sure is getting traffic!

may the music be with you

I agree also, though i've never at all been a fan for mv/rc, they just use synth to write and perform, versus say goldsmith, who used it as just another piece of an ensemble. These people truly are talentless...I could compose music far more professionally, and quitet frankly better, and i'm a 20 YEAR OlD who isn't studying formal music composition. Hopefully there will be another revolution with large orchestral scores with creativity, complexity and intelligence sweeping hollywood in the future, for now i won't hold my breath....on a side note, i would imagine the "spotting sessions" described isn't to dissimilar to how it actually is.

a challenge to anyone who lives in L.A.   Wednesday, April 7, 2010 (7:30 p.m.)

woah... hold on there, I wouldn't go that far.
Yes some of these mv/rc composers are talentless, but not all of them. Definitely they seem pathetic compared to Goldsmith but NOT talentless...
You see, you have to blame the studios for this mess. I mean there has been some good that came out of MV, I mean look at John Powell and Harry Greggson Williams. Were they not once mv/rc composers? And do they not now have such great work? I mean have you heard Steve Jablonksy's Steamboy? A great score without that MV influence compared to something as bad as Transformers.

While unlike you, they are restricted to the continually repeated style of Zimmer because that is what the studio wants. You have the freedom to venture melodically anywhere! But mv/rc are restricted to that same clone and quite blant sound you hear over and over again. Rather than blaming MV/RC, blame the studious. Still, I do not approve of the MV way. I mean their scores really make them seem like talentless scums. It gets rather annoying doesn't it? I mean since when did a Greek mytholical epic film require a score that is probably compatible a robot movie like Transformers. MV/RC can really make me mad sometimes, and other times it makes me really pity those sad composers who have nothing better to do.

Don't worry, a time will come when we move away from MV/RC sound. I mean even Zimmer has done some brilliant stuff with intelligence. But there is still a long way to go before the idiotic producers decide the orchestral scores are the way to go. Sigh, when will they learn.

As for the "spotting sessions". CC hit them right on. How about this? I challenge anybody who lives in L.A. right now to sneak into their studio and reveal the secrets of their "spotting sessions".

>> Ancient Greece, robot wars, alien invasions... this is the domain of the melodramatic minor-key chords that meaningfully touch the hearts of the uneducated Wal-Mart electorate!
