Re: brian tyler's sin-- correction(greg)
Thank godness...I'm not the only one who noticed this! I was really getting into Tyler's Timeline until I realized just what I was listening to. It was by pure accident...after all I didn't excpet to find Horner's danger theme in Timeline. But I had just finished listening to Troy, was humming the theme, and as I'm duhh duhh duh duhh-ing, I'm hearing that in the music. To say the least, I felt like some Looney Tunes character. I'm not convinced I had a steam whistle coming out of my head, those little "crazy circles" in my eyes, fire coming out of my nose, smoke coming out of my ears, and explatives coming from my mouth. I couldn't believe it. Now, I love Horner's danger theme (its sooo catchy), but it has no business in Tyler's work. Either he got bitten by temp track-itis, or was just too infatuated with Horner at the time. It starts about one minute into track 3 and continues on for the entire score. Augh!
Come to think of it...on repeat listens, Timeline sounds somewhat like a generic Horner score.
