I've finally had a chance to hear Jerry's rejected score. You simply cannot compare this score with Tyler's, they are so different. While Tyler wrote an engaging bombastic score, Jerry's score is a much more enjoyable listening experience. The first eight or nine cues are absolutely gorgeous - a beautifull love theme(?) which progresses into a full orchestral peformance by the end of the score. The action cues are great too, the synth rythym sound (I can't describe it) from Legend is used and I found the action theme itself, although like his typical U.S Marshalls style is also reminicsant of the Goblin theme also from Legend. Others have said there is also a hint of Lionheart. I unfortunately havent heard Lionheart so cannot back that statement up.
I certainly have no authority or the knowledge of scoring to be even reviewing these two scores. But I have to say that while Brian's score is a loud, robust and undeniably entertaining score, Jerry's comes out miles ahead and I'm sure most will agree once they've heard the Varese release.
And when put against Jerry's other recent scores 1999 - 2003, this crushes them all. BUY THE DELUXE EDITION WHEN IT ARRIVES THANKS TO VARESE, YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED.
