    Well, do you have RealPlayer Plus? I do! It gives you the option of saving the tracks of a CD directly to your hard-drive! It's really great because I don't have to get my CDs just to listen to one or two tracks; I can just pop it up on the computer. It also means that even if the CD is scratched, lost, or stolen, then you don't have to buy a new CD.
    Anyway, I'm listening to the Revenge of the Sith soundtrack (which is saved to my computer); 'Anakin's Dark Deeds', to be precise.

    I've been listening to my (shamefully small) Goldsmith collection a lot; Night Crossing, ST:TMP, and Patton.



    ttbk, Love Theme From Ben-Hur

    I've been listening to a lot of Joe Hisaishi the last few days. Particularly My Neighbor Totoro, Porco Rosso, and Howl's Moving Castle. Howl's Moving Castle is great, but there are definatley a few times where it's fairly similar to Spirited Away (I suppose that to be expected though). Out of the three, I have to say Porco Rosso is my favorite. I've only listened to it once, but I don't really have anything negative to say about it - just a great fun score!

    I can't believe this thread got down this far. I always enjoyed reading it and people's brief thoughts on what they were listening to.

    Right now I've got on my new "Secondhand Lions" soundtrack by Patrick Doyle. This along with "The Little Princess" are my first two soundtracks by Doyle. I've only listened to Princess once, but really enjoyed it. I'm currently on my third run through of Lions and love the broad range of styles. It's just a lot of fun!

    I'm sure people here haven't heard of her but I quite like the music composed by Yuki Kajiura for several series, Noir, .hack//sign, .hack//liminality, Mai-hime, Madlax and Tsubasa Chronicle and the band See-saw. The series mentioned are Japanese and I haven't seen most of them, I just have the music -_-

    The newest score that I've been listening to is Elfman's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It's great!

    Escaflowne Movie original sound track, which is...different. Oh, I really like the music. I'm just not too sure how to describe it, since it has a lot of different themes to it.

    I had on the Corpse Bride soundtrack today, which was all right. I don't like the vocal songs very much, though. But the non-vocal tracks are well done, in my opinion.

    Holes-The Movie. But I really want a good Star Wars CD, but I can't find any with the Imperial March and Duel of the Fates on the same disc. Has anyone found a CD like this?

    The only cd I can think of is this one from amazon.com:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00002MZ4V/qid=1129675664/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/104-4227928-7238321?v=glance&s=music

    If you can afford the full soundtracks though, I would reccomend that. You won't be dissapointed.

    Right at this moment I am listening to the Train/Appreciation track from the Spiderman 2 soundtrack by Danny Elfman. Yahoo IM radio is such a great feature :D

    Battle of the Heroes, at the moment. Then I'll be listening to The Planets by Gustav Holst.

    These days I have all three PT soundtracks in my car. Right now I'm listening to Duel of the Fates. I think it's the best musical piece in movie soundtrack history. :D

    I recently bought the Warner Brothers official soundtrack to A Clockwork Orange. It contains some of Wendy Carlos' scores, plus the Deutsche Grammophon recordings Kubrick used for the Scheherazade, William Tell Overture, and La gazza ladra. Of course, having Carlos' realisation of Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary excited me. Aside from this soundtrack, I haven't found a satisfactory interpretation. (Others have too little percussion, a fast tempo, too much brass, et cetera...)

    Being a minor Philip Glass fan, I was excited to when I found the album to Koyaanisqatsi priced at one dollar. I finally own the music without having to sit through an three hour music video. Glass is nice in moderation; three hours is overkill.

    Dancer in the Dark. The saddest movie ever, but some of the music is really good. Especially the titles music, along with Cvalda, which is so silly it's addicting. The music is Bjork, but I can't really stereotype it or anything, since I have never listened to her music before.

    At the moment, Serenity. A great album that has a couple of crappy action cues and is far too short. Overall though, I love it. Can't get enough of Track 3.



    Oh, and when I need a break from that I just pop in PoA. :D
