I've been listening to this score a couple of times now, and I really think it's one of the year's best 'pop' scores.

Some recent comments from Magne suggested he wasn't totally happy with the finished product...


While on stage at the a-ha convention, Magne also talked candidly about how he wasn’t satisfied with how the Beatles movie turned out:

“I wanted to make a much more radical score than what ended up [in the movie]. There was a struggle, a fight between me and the director, who came in a little bit late in the process, to make him understand what I was trying to do. So to my mind, the last version that I heard was a compromise where they had used my music in a way that I wasn’t a hundred percent satisfied with. I won’t be able to give you a percentage, as I haven’t seen the finished one. (…) The album is different, because I made the album afterwards, a bit more like I wanted the movie to sound.”

He has a point. The film is rather bad, but the music is good.

Interesting, thanks. So I guess he won't be working with Peter Flinth again.
