This is a comments thread about FSM CD: Green Fire/Bhowani Junction

If you consider that this is a relatively obscure score in Rozsa's Ĺ“uvre, you'd think that this is a weaker effort. Well, you'd be wrong! Rozsa delivers a breathtaking exotic extravaganza which may rank up there among his very best. Really enjoyable!

You mean Green Fire, one assumes?

I like it a lot too, but I don't discount all those neat ethic source music stuff in Bhowani Junction.

Great score(s). Green Fire is a bit monothematic, but it's a great theme and a relatively short score, so it doesn't cripple the listening experience. It also plays well with lyrics, surprisingly, although it was nice that FSM offered "clean" versions of the opening end ending credit cues as well.

It was an unusual score in at least one respect: after viewing the film's rough cut, Rozsa demanded payment in emeralds.

I really enjoy listening to this score, the main theme is beautiful and the music sounds like it was recorded yesterday. a great score, great album and highly recomended.

The 'Detonator' cue is as good as anything Rozsa wrote in the 'nail-biting chase' arena. It sound even better on the OST with the ticking SFX added.
