Great point about those awesome action hook/rhythm setters, Bob.

One of my absolute favorites is Defeat of the Deceivers, one of Scott´s greatest action tracks. What a drive, it´s stunning!

What comes to other great rhythm setters, there´s always for example Williams´ and Goldsmith´s stuff, but also Murray Gold´s. I have been positively flabbergasted of his skill in an area I thought was only reserved for the aforementioned masters.

I don't know how I forgot that cue! You're right, that big stomping percussion rhythm is awesome. Hell, even MOUNTBATTEN: THE LASY VICEROY had a few cues like this. I'll never understand why he never became more widely recognized as an action composer!

Yeah, talking about action music, what about Powerful Amazon from Jules Verne Adventures? The first time I heard it I almost forgot to breathe.

I remember reading from an interview, that what Scott really enjoys to compose, is aggressive music. It´s not hard to hear why, although it´s not the first thing that comes to mind, when speaking of his music.

Listened The Mill on the Floss once more; beautiful, subdued music. A few lovely themes and the overall British pastoral feeling makes this a joy to listen to. It doesn´t make you grasp on your armchair or anything like that, rather it makes you drift away to a countryside and dream absent-mindedly. Relaxing stuff, if tad melancholic and brooding. One of Scott´s own favorite scores this as well.
