Well, facehugger is no longer with us so...

Third attempt for a civilized discussion on Williams's latest effort!

Gentlemen...

(And ladies, of course!)

Score sounds good to me. I usually only listen to like, two or three samples, just to get a feel for it.

I'm digging it. Definitely in the same lyrical vein as War Horse.

Is it out already or are these just impressions from the clips? I listened once through but don't want to spoil the entire soundtrack listening experience when it finally arrives.

Yeah, same here. Listened to them once, then not again untill I get the CD, which -- as it happens -- is released on my birthday. So a nice birthday present to myself.

I love the samples. For my taste, this is so welcome.

Happy birthday early Thor. smile

What happened to facehugger? (and whatever happened, good riddance!)

I love these samples. Although I love the popcorn scores that Williams wrote in the 2000s as well, it's his dramatic writing that has really made me marvel at the man's talent.

I thought this was supposed to be a thread about Williams' Book Thief.

It is, despite the attempts of others.

Nice to see Williams going out of his way for a non-Spielberg film.

I look forward to it the way I look forward to all new John Williams scores.
He got me into it all. I've followed his music for the past 35+ years, buying everything he's had released and even when the score hasn't resonated with me or become a firm favourite, I admire the skill and artistry that went into it.
As mentioned in the previous thread, maybe his latter years may have been viewed differently if he didn't have Spielberg to champion his work (much in the way Goldsmith and Bernstein had to battle to have their voices heard), but that's by the by.
He's 81, still writing great music and every new work by him I view as a gift from heaven.
Bring it on.

I'm with Kev 100%, although I've only been at this for 24 years.

And I'm nearing the end of the book and am loving it. It can as a real surprise to learn the author was a) a fellow Australian and b) younger than me. It doesn't seem possible that a guy younger than me with a stronger Australian accent could write something about that period that feels so genuine and is so touching.

And it just occurred to me that the main character is around the same age Johnny T was during the war.

Thomas Keneally (author of "Schindler's Ark," the basis for "Schindler's List) is from Sydney.

Thanks for that!

The Book Thief sound clips immediately remind me of the Williams score for the TV-Movie "Jane Eyre" (not in content but in mood) with a delicate heroine going on a fascinating journey. Look forward to seeing the film! Memories of beautiful flourishes in "War Horse" also come to mind.
