I've admired Mr. Talgorn's music for a long time. I agree. He does seem to be undervalued. Then again, it could be that he works only as often as he himself would like to. I would welcome his sound in many blockbuster calibre films. He is clearly capable.
That's indeed a such great score... wonderful melody, and some great tracks. Reminded me, again, of Williams in early 80's top form... and some Horner as well. (a 'moody' forest track)... best thing its still pure Talgorn.
I listen to Heavy Metal 2000 quite often... its like a journey into dark space or something... I never saw the film (don't care)... but the music paints bleak desolate vistas with wonderful pockets of hidden (femine) beauty. Spectacular.
Anthony Zimmer is a fine soundtrack too, a kind of Basic Instinct score.
