Just got round to buying this cheap. I'm glad I didn't pay full price as I think it's shit, on the whole. Maybe 2/3 listenable tracks.

To paraphrase the Joker, [a] very poor choice of words.

Just listened to the score on Tidal; amazing work, very moving. I imagine it must have worked especially well with the imagery of the movie. I should finally get around to seeing this.

Really you should, yes! Specially the scenes for The Night Window and Sixteen Hundred Men are almost mind blowing! And the score really works well in those scenes smile

And back to 1917:

I see that according to my last.fm profile, I have listened to "Sixteen Hundred Men" 88 times and "The Night Window" 55 times! That's a lot of time spent! lol!


I find this interesting, as I rarely do repeat listenings (anymore... like about everybody, I did of course in earlier days). I tend to listen to albums (or, when it comes to classical music, "compositions"), not cues (unless I use various shuffle modes, but then it is incidental). It is rare that I play the same album several times in a row/week/month. Maybe if it is new to me or I am really, really in the mood for that particular album, then I listen to it three or four times within a month or so. I don't know, I have not collected statistics anywhere about my listening habits, and I have no "rules" for what I listen to when... it's just repeat listening sessions rarely occur.

Yesterday evening, I listened to INTERSTELLAR by Hans Zimmer. I think it's a terrific score, very well done, but I think it was the second or third time I listened to the complete score since it came out, and perhaps I had two or three additional listenings of the cue "Mountains". So it comes down I listened to the album about once very two years. Would be interesting for me to start collecting statistics about what and how often I listen to various albums and pieces. Maybe I get to it one day.

Mendes said The Night Window is the best track compose by Newman in all his movies.

Also, 1917 is a very good score, by all means.

Any price for a score you view as "shit on the whole" is expensive.

I think 'shit on the whole' is a bit harsh.
Sure, it's got some noodling ambient/suspense cues that don't play that great on their own.
And it sure ain't no BRIDGE OF SPIES.
But there are 4-5 tracks I really like (the more gentle/melodic/thematic cues) and I thought it worked fine in the film.
That rip-off cue from THIN RED LINE always distracts me though.

Oh, I'm the type of person who at times get OBSESSED with certain albums! I can listen to them over and over...and over again. For several weeks. Then I move on to other albums. But after a few months I return to it and get obsessed all over again! lol! I guess it might be more the themes I get obsessed about. The last years I have been listening to some Burwell albums A LOT! And its so interesting to check my listening statistics from time to time.

Like when I check my stats for the last 12 months I have i.e listen to a cue from the LLL Buffy Collection 981 times.
Not the same cue, but 981 times have I played different tracks from it. (and almost 5000 times since it was released)

Also, Carter Burwell's Goodbye Christopher Robin, I have played tracks from it 390 times in the last 12 months.
(744 times since I started listening to it)

I have also listened to a track from the Arrow: Season 1 soundtrack 4341 times!

Yes, I have no life, lol
