There's some interesting sounding stuff you guys are listening.
I'm at the moment listening some of the Mark Mancina's music from "Speed".
The 2-CD complete score of John Debney's CutThroat Island. Over-the-top bombastic swashbuckling through and through.
The Varese Film Classics recordings of Bernard Herrmann's The 7th Voyage of Sinbad and Psycho. Joel McNeely's take on Psycho is fantastic; far better than Danny Elfman's take from the remake a few years ago, and thanks to the improved sound quality since the original Herrman recording, I think it's the best choice if you're interested in that score. John Debney's take on Sinbad is also very good, though not quite on that superlative level -- I think the tempo's a bit off occasionally, but then, it's been a long time since I've seen the movie. For an example of Herrmann's fantasy scores done correctly, check out Bruce Broughton's AMAZING recording of Jason and the Argonauts. Great stuff.
Steve Jablonsky's score for the anime Steamboy. A very fun, fast-paced escapist adventure score. About on a level, enjoyabilitywise, with Harry Gregson-Williams' wonderfully fun swashbuckler Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, except geared toward aviation rather than nautical adventure, obviously. A definite surprise from a composer from whom I never expected better than crap.
ROTS: Anakin vs. Obi Wan, its making me cry right now...
The Departure --Gattaca--Michael Nyman
Mutiny On The Bounty, alternate score.
This one is good!
Sonata No. 7 by Sergei Prokofiev is currently being broadcast on Classical Arts Showcase. I was listening to some Scarlatti sonatas and Smetana's "Moldau" earlier.
I am listening to Radiohead's OK Computer album.
