• In Response to: The Clemmensen Journey - Top 5 of 1991 (Riley KZ)

> Clem’s Winner:

> Beauty and the Beast by Alan Menken - ****

A highly interesting opinion for a score we agree on! I've no problem with listening to it apart from the film. For my money, it would never get better song-wise than this in the classic Disney era (yes even The Lion King) and arguably any era.

> Clem’s Runner Ups:

> Hook by John Williams - ****

I honestly have no idea if I've heard this, which means I probably have not. I should probably remedy that, given its immense stature in Williams' oeuvre and the decade lol

> Fried Green Tomatoes by Thomas Newman - ****

Haven't heard this in years, but have fond memories of its folksy melody. Prime candidate for the statement "don't make 'em like that anymore, yeah?"

> The Rocketeer by James Horner - *****

I'll counter your below opinion with a hot take on this one: Horner excels at the adventure music here, but the suspense material is at best average. I find myself skipping it on most listens! Otherwise I consider this among his best.

> Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country by Cliff Eidelman - *1/2

I thoroughly disagree, but man, do I respect a contrary opinion swung out like a bat at a hornet's nest! big grin Yeah, I'm not particularly fond of the suspense material in this, but the optimistic stuff and aggressive action music more than make up for it in my opinion! The end titles are among my favorite from any Trek score, and to be honest, the main theme just *nails* the sense of hopeful melancholy that defines a fond farewell.

I always enjoy your thoughts, even when I don't see what you see! wink
