Gave 'Star Trek Generations' another spin today. Yeah, I unequivocally *like* this Score now. It has really, really grown on me. There is some subdued music here but the two Main Themes and the really quite strong Action-Music more than makes up for it. And the entire Nexus-Sequence is absolutely beautiful, 'A Christmas Hug' hands down one of the most emotional Cues this entire Franchise has to offer. I'm not even joking here.

Part of me kinda thinks Jerry Goldsmith would have been the ideal choice, but all in all, I am glad Dennis McCarthy got this gig and the chance to work with an larger ensemble for once. Gives the movie a unique feel different from all the others. Kinda sad that this is still by far the largest film he has worked on.

Also gave 'The Forgotten Battle' by Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch a listen. I dunno, this is more of a Thriller- than a War-Score, mostly quivering, agitated String Sustains that vary in volume but the entire Score almost never change gears, remaining on edge thorough, only offering some tonal closure near the end. Ambient, but mostly organic as far as the performance is concerned. In very general terms, this is somehwhere between 'Dunkirk' and '1917' but not as opressive and relentless as the former, but also not as effective as the latter (and also missing its highlights). I don't think I can recommend this.
