Just a little opinion I have...

Just a little opinion I have...   Thursday, June 24, 2004 (5:33 a.m.) 

I find it very interesting how everybody seems to get so roused by the rating on this site. "It should be five freakin' stars, not four, you idiot!" But I've noticed that this is not the only place where you can find four-star ratings like at Soundtrack-express and

Now, I think this score is very good, entertaining and a definite improvement on the first two films. But still I really can't start measuring it up to be in the "classic" category. It's a fine score but it's not really Star Wars, Schindler's List, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., etc.

Since I haven't seen any of the films I can't really judge at the overall musical architecture, but judging by the albums so far they don't really show that much structural cohesiveness with each other. I may be entirely wrong, but until I have something more to judge with, I'm afraid I can't really agree to this latest score to be really THAT DAMN GOOD as everybody wants it to be.

For me itís not so much a matter of wanting it to be that damn good. It is that damn good. By all means have your opinion about the music, but being a dabbler in the film composing scene myself and knowing full well how difficult even the simplest things in film music can be, its simply stunning for me to witness Williams' orchestral acrobats. How often does such a wonderfully written and eclectic score come out? The Harry Potterisms are great to be sure, but what really attracts me to this album are the things that everyone else seems to want to shy away from, namely the Knight Bus music and the baroque style bits. It's the kind of stuff you just don't come across in film music anymore. I'm so jaded with the Hollywood sound as of late and the sameness of so much of the music out there - especially after the debacle of Yared's score to Troy. Hearing this score is reminder to me that great work still makes it to the screen.

Anyway, I just seem to have a taste for weird stuff as of late and this score fits the bill perfectly.

I agree. My original response to the Knight Bus music was, "THIS IS MUSIC??!?!" but I actually think it's quite pleasing now. It's very original, and it is music. There is really way too much sameness in the styles of music used in films today. Though much of the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire soundtrack was good, I think much of it fell into the "boring and unoriginal" category whenever the film slipped into a dramatic scene.
