I gave this score another listen today and realized why it amazes me and is one of my go tos when I want to get lost in music.
My daughter owns the scores to the Uncharted video game series and has told me how wonderful they are. I have listened to a bit and they are quite good. Well today I had her listen to the opening of DragonHeart (she loved the movie as a kid) and she loved it. I think there may be another score nerd in the making.
Wonderful score, always enjoyed it.I like how when you hear some score you really like you tell others about it. It is one of things that makes this board good.
Thanks dan. I try to do this as often as I can. Sometimes I think having such a volume of music on hand and buying new selections on a regular basis causes me to bypass or forget what I previously had and loved. This is what happened with this score. I have always loved this one but pushed it aside. Perhaps I have too much music on my hands as opposed to time? Nah!
Edelman doesn't get enough love IMHO. I admit I am not normally big on synths, but Edelman knows how to tie it all together. He also knows how to write a great melody ! I have most of his film scores on CD and listen to his music often. DragonHeart is one of his finest.
I started a thread sometime ago, something like "Composers You Love and Didn't Know it". Randy Edelman fits that description for me. I'm generally not into synth, but he always delivers scores with lovely themes.
