Which of Williams' scores does 1941 most closely resemble?
I'd say a cross between MIDWAY and Amazing Stories: THE MISSION but without ever taking itself too seriously, and with the Irish tune "The Rakes of Mallow" and some great big band dance numbers thrown in for extra fun.
If you like John Williams at all I think this score is impossible not to like. That Sousa-on-crack march alone is one of his most enjoyable compositions ever. Can't wait to hear the missing material and the overall improved sound.
For those who haven't heard it before, here's what you can expect (from the French dub). Enjoy.
From that clip, you'd expect two hours of nothing but people screaming .
Both are must buys. 1941 is a John Williams score, for a Steven Spielberg movie, in expanded form (that's three reasons), and that end credits piece sounds lovely. I have never seen the movie, so I'm looking forward to the first listen.
And Bear McCreary continues to give us good music. I've only seen the first episode of the Cape series and thought it wasn't very good, but listening to the music is something I'll definitely enjoy.
The first 150 people to purchase THE CAPE soundtrack via the La-La Land Records website will get their copy autographed by composer Bear McCreary.
Throw in Summer Glau and I'll buy two!
No, she is MINE! You hear me -- MINE! MINE! MINE!!!!
It's funny - I was probably a week too late in asking Fox for the Firefly sondtrack rights. If we had got the rights, we would havee had the Summer Glau Trifecta of Firefly, Terminator: SCC and now The Cape.
