Re: How can you dare!(Kris)
So... first you are trashing off a composer in favor of your favourite composer of all time, so it seams. You really haven't got a single good word for Tyler, but as soon as someone touches your precious Goldsmith, you get all angry?? Dude, that sounds arrogant!
Ok, Goldsmith has had his classics, I love The Omen and other stuff, but overall of hir recent work, I only loved The Mummy. Brian Tyler did, in my opinion (as the fellow before me already put it, IMHO, it is our O-PIN-ION) a terrific job in scoring TimeLine. I think his score sounds fresh, though still having a classic feeling. Ok, some themes are a bit repetitive, but it doesn't really bother me and the score sounds very entertaining.
As for Goldsmith, after having heard all the great Goldsmith comments, I recently got the opportunity of hearing Goldsmiths rejected score, and was expecting of course a lot. Sadly, I must say it REALLY disappointed me. It was all there; big orchestra, themes etc, but now HIS score is what you call a BORE. It just did'n't manage to keep my interest, though it didn't vary much from what Tyler did. It was missing the speed Tyler has, it sounds old while using some instruments which were, as I thought, pretty out of place. The love themes did sound good occasionally, but overall Golsmith once again dissapointed me. I think he is getting too old for this stuff.
