McFarlane is a film music fan like us (don't forget he gave Ron Jones a job!) McNeely is an incredibly talented composer and IMO in the last few years with his superb work on the Tinkerbell series he is in fact at the height of his creative powers.
Joel REALLY needs a comeback, and *maybe* this is it! This would be the perfect opportunity to release an expanded/complete of one of his great 90s action scores (Avengers, Soldier, Terminal Velocity, Virus). I remember getting into his music around 1998/1999 and hoping he would break out into big-budget films.
With this (McNeely doing old school Western), JNH doing old school JNH in Malificent, Desplat doing old school everyone in Monuments Men and Godzilla, are we turning some kind of crud corner with the Zimmer/Remote Control phone in scores? Is there hope yet??
Very excited to hear this. McNeely rarely disappoints and I knew he would deliver an old fashioned western score and this sounds great! I've got this and Maleficent on order. Looking forward to getting both of these on release day!
Yeah....that guy always delivers!...I don't understand why nobody gives him the big projects he deserves...but I guess the silver and golden age sound is for yesterday men, like myself Just listened to the samples of JUDITH ...fantastic as well....
