I had mentioned this score in a recent "underrated" score thread.
The movie is not for all tastes (as it is the case for any movie directed by Tarantino's protégé Eli Roth) but the orchestral score by Nathan Barr is very good.

Bruno Nicolai's grand opening theme for the movie El Cristo Del Oceano

This is my film score track for every day and always lifts any gloom that might be around.

Vladimir Cosma has been around for a long time and has a prolific output of film music over more than 50 years. I came across his music for the first time 40 years ago but even getting information on his works proved difficult. Youtube changed all that and these days you can listen for hours on autoplay and catch up on some of his music treats. There are excerpts from some of his concerts as well. Seems like a fun guy.

This happy-go-lucky catchy theme from La Chevre will keep your ears occupied all day.

Farewell to the King is one of Basil Poledouris finest scores. In spite of the John Barry influences, it also unmistakably sounds like Basil Poledouris, for those know well his music.

The score is mainly lyrical and contemplative, but also has a few epic moments:

My track of the day is not on youtube, it's 'Lava Flow' from disc 2 of the LLL Close Encounters, being the track that accompanies, I'm guessing, a cartoon on the tv.
Also love the 'Eleventh commandment' and 'Tv Western' tracks that precede it. It's very rare that I like source tracks, but when a duo like this are on fire it just permeates. So many good alt cues on this release too.


re Night Search

That piece (I've always known it as Ben Gardener's Boat) is one of my top ten favorite Williams cues. The suspense is haunting and makes you really start to feel the gravity of the situation and that the characters are dealing with something almost supernatural. So many emotions in just a few minutes! Great stuff.

That IS my favorite Williams cue. A moment I was enthralled with as a kid watching the movie, so tense, yet so full of mystique. The sense of wonder spelled out by the sparse shifting notes exemplifies for me what Spielberg and Williams could do.

danbeck, I don't like horror scores, so at first I skipped your youtube for Hostel II. Silly me. I just played it, and it is very good. I especially like the orchestrations that start around 2:30 that lead into a theme around 2:45. Nice.

Irish composer Patrick Cassidy delivered this haunting score for Calvary.

Sung in Gaelic by Iarla Ó Lionáird, the lyrics (Gaelic and English translation) are provided in the comments.

The Phantom by David Newman. I searched for this track for years because of the Mask of Zorro trailer. Still get's the heart pumping

Happy to know you enjoyed the track from Hostel II @joan hue. I love both the scores to the first and the second. The first is more an "action packed" score (specially in its final half) and the second is slower with this seductive theme.

@ Octoberman and johnonymous86 I loved your choice. Jaws is possibly my favourite movie and "Night Search" is also one of my favourite tracks from Williams.
I find the track "The Pier Incident" equaly amazing - the beginning of the track for Brody looking at the book pictures (with that melodic section of the Jaws theme that is almost never used in the sequels) is so suspensfull, and then one of the most energic renditions of the shark theme for the pier scene (reaching its appex when the pier turns at 1'33") is perfect scoring.
(and the sound quality of the Intrada release is so much better than that of the Decca release!)

I've been trying to remember what I might have read about the Decca issue, back when it came out.
I think it might have been something about using excessive noise reduction or something.
I wish I could remember but, yes, the Decca is not up to snuff with the SQ.
I do know that at the time I was more than happy to buy it just for the fact that it was the actual film tracks.
The Intrada was an embarrassment of riches when it followed and the SQ was no small improvement.

The Home of Dark Butterflies by Panu Aaltio

I detect within a brief homage to Ennio Morricone's Sorstalanság

'One of my favorite tracks of all time.'

Not only that MGH...but one of the finest escape cues ever written for a film...

La Chevre...Delighted you chose this cue. Plays well over the ending. The bumbling Woody Allen character finds girl...super tough guy, Depardieu stands looking, as girl and bumbling guy float away. What a scene...what wonderful music... what an uplifting film...brofax

What's funny about that moment (1:33) is that the music POV is swapped and it's so "delicious" (don't know what other word to use) that you're actually rooting for the shark! C'mon Bruce, get'em! Sorry to digress the thread, but one of my fav musical moments.
