I saw this new listing at SAE this morning, and really got my hopes up. An anthology of cues from 19 of his films, some new to c.d. And for the enthusiast, they will likely be pleased. I however was hoping (against hope), that there would finally be a cue or two from his 'The Celluloid Closet' documentary from the 90's. It remains a terrific score to a well-received documentary film. Perhaps in a Volume II.

Would have loved a suite from Mystery, Alaska

It's very heavy on recent times, though it's cool that The Spanish Prisoner is represented.

Now we need one on James Newton Howard. Still zero compilations by him.

Hell, or The Jackal (someone has to be working on that one, right?).

Still, some good music here (loved the titular cue from "Hail, Caesar!" and "Medieval Waters" alone should've guaranteed an Original Score nomination for In Bruges).

Wasn't there a memorable score to FEAR? Craig/SAE

I'm very on/off in relation to Burwell as a composer, but this looks like a neat way to sample a lot of his work. I've just received a promo, and will be listening to it shortly (I was actually told about Burwell's involvement in the upcoming WSA back in January, so I've been looking forward to a CD like this).

But I'm kinda disappointed that they've omitted what I consider Burwell's very best score -- ROB ROY.

Can't wait to grab it, wish there was something from The Celluloid Closet. Some truly gorgeous interesting music in that documentary.

There is one score which is head and shoulder over any other Burwell score, IMO. Kalifornia from 1993, where he kind of sounds like Patrick O'Hearn. Guitar by David Torn. Would love a full score.

Was hoping for something from "Before the devil knows you're dead", a personal Burwell favorite.

Nice, but at the same time I am personally disappointed there was no space for my personal Burwell favorite, the Psycho III theme.
Maybe in a vol.2...

I guess we all have a Burwell favourite that wasn't included.

In favour of my own missing "Burwell essential" ROB ROY, though, I'd argue that it showcases him in a romantic style he hasn't often explored before or since -- and hence an essential to have a representative overview of his output.

He's mined that well MANY times before Thor.
THE ALAMO, DOC HOLLYWOOD, THIS BOY'S LIFE, MYSTERY ALASKA, the main theme from MILLER'S CROSSING (okay, that theme isn't BY him) all feature some lovely, romantic scoring in his inimitable style.

also that one with Nic Cage and Bridget Fonda and the lottery...


In favour of your own missing "Burwell essential" ROB ROY, you have a full soundtrack CD smile

and where's CONSPIRACY THEORY theme??? oh... wait

MILLER'S CROSSING is often big, but not really 'romantic' in that sense, IMO. DOC HOLLYWOOD is too 'lightweight' comedy. I only have vague memories of MYSTERY ALASKA, and THE ALAMO and THE BOY'S LIFE, I don't think I've heard. So you could be right. I've just always considered ROB ROY the equivalent of BLACK BEAUTY or SOMMERSBY by Elfman -- a sound that is somewhat 'untypical' of what the composer is most known for (sort of quirky, minimalist, exlporative, "indie" stuff).

Nothing from Psycho III, A Knight's Tale, Conspiracy Theory, The Finest Hours, Rob Roy, Fear, The Hi-Lo Country or The General's Daughter... which are some of his best scores. Aouch.
