    Fantastic episode fellas. I urge you to listen to the soundtrack to The Fountain by a chappy called Clint Mansell, for me it’s the best that i’ve come across.

    Another solid film score episode. And I have to say I agree with West’s opinion on John Williams being “played out” in Star Wars.

    Ho-lee shit, this is a great episode. How does West know all this stuff? Just amazing. Some great jokes in there, too, as usual. “I’m glad he died. Spoilers.” So great, guys.

    I do not recall if it came up on your last music edition, but I really enjoy the scores from James Bond. From today’s perspective, the really lush and melodic orchestrations feel out of place, and the mediocre films make the scores even more out of place. I dig the newer, stripped down scores like Monster’s Ball or the rhythmic scores from modern action movies, but the full orchestrations are pleasant to hear for variety.

    The Living Daylights has a very pleasant melody in its main theme, as does Moonraker. License to Kill has good stuff too. Odd that the worst movies (in my mind) have the best scores!

    I could pick more, but instead I’ll just recommend folks queue up Spotify and listen. The Prague Philharmonic does plays a whole bunch if you can’t find the originals from the movies.
