This is a comments thread about FSM CD: A Man Called Horse

Lenny is sublime.
He wrote more than a soundtrack, his unique work is an ethnomusicology study.
And now Lukas, please let's fill this empty space:

Hard to believe this thread only got a few hits, though this score is admittedly a challenging, if rewarding, listen. I wasn't aware until giving it a closer inspection today that the full album program is not reproduced exactly. The chant music was moved to the end and given longer versions. I'm a bit disappointed, only in that I wish we had CD representation of those tracks as originally heard on the LP.

A superb and severely underrated score. I'm also big fan of the movie.
Sad that 5 years on this one didn't sell out.

I bought this the week it was released. Great score, and it presses buttons not pressed elsewhere in Rosenman's output.

I finally picked this one up - I've been hemming and hawing over buying it ever since it came out and I finally picked it up after Intrada's release of the sequel score came out. This is a challenging, but beautiful score and FSM's presentation of it is lovely. Definitely worth checking out!

This is the third time I've typed "I'm eight years late to the party" this morning, but it's true. I know that I'm about eight years late to the party, but I found this in my Christmas stocking the other day, along with my suspenders and tanga. And, on first listen (you know what I'm on about - impressions based on one spin) it strikes me as being absolutely greeeeeeeeeeeat, Tony!!

I'm a Rosenman fan anyway, but this isn't "typical Rosenman". Yeah, sure, he's got to get his tone pyramids in, but it's a very unique score otherwise, incredibly haunting, beautiful and powerful. I'm pleading guilty before charged to the possible future charge of talking about scores simply by comparing them to other scores, but this is a man-down-the-pub rabbit after all. "As about as authentic as Hollywood got" is what I'm thinking about the Indian chants interpolated. And, curiously, I hear more than a hint of Jerry Fielding (here we go) in some parts. Logically his approach to Native Indians in THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES, but also his "leanings" to Lutoslawki in the massively mind-blowing momentous chordal progressions at the climax of DEMON SEED for example. Rosenman gets the "man going mad with pain and transcending reality" bit stupendously effectively. Richard Harris nearly goes onto another plane of existence. The choral work here is as gorgeous (and "appropriate" again) as something like... CLOSE ENCOUNTERS. There I've gone and mentioned another film.

This will be getting more respins over what's left of my existence. I'll be back with more inane stream-of-consciousness rubbish in due course.

And I still haven't told you about my Sir Winston English Tea, my rice, my lemon, or my toilet roll.

Ya turned ya some injun, huh? That's the Apache, Cheyenne and Crow at least accounted for in sound around these parts. Are there any more native American injun nations scored hereabouts?

I'm revisiting this score right now. This is a quite fantastic score!

This album is one of a number of titles upon which SAE has bestowed a (seemingly permanent) pricetag reduction.

A Man Called Horse has a cost cut half.
