You're right!
Those first few notes are spot on!

...and then listen to this Tchaikovsky guy at the 7:00 minute mark!

How do guys like Poledouris and Tchaikovsky get away with it?

Oops, you forgot Holst and Vangelis! razz

It is common knowledge Conti felt victim of the temp track and Kaufman's dictation.

We're six tracks deep into the first disc (Poledouris) so far, and I'm really digging this score. It has all the right stuff wink: majesty, mystery, action, adventure... I hope the Cult of Jerry won't expel me for saying so, but when it comes to integrating synths and orchestra, Basil was the best.

Wonderful to have the Poledouris score. Ordered immediately.
I do hope that on the site's excellent cover thread, someone can post a nicely-retouched cover in high resolution for the new CD, with Zimmer's name removed.


Moron.


Perfectly reasonable request, so that the cover image shown on my monitor carries the name of the composer of the music being played at the time, and not the name of someone whose music isn't being played. I'm surprised you need a moron like myself to explain that to you.

I received this yesterday and I have to say that Basil's score is so much better than Zimmer's. I'm a fan of both composers, but Zimmer's score sounds so dated, while Basil's is so much more timeless and appropriate for the film in my opinion. Yes, the "Right Stuff" melody is painfully obvious in it, but I'm still really enjoying this score. It's fun to be able to hear two different composer's takes on the same material. Amazing how different they really are.

Can somebody do a hi-res cover with Jack London's name removed, and giving Ethan Hawke a single sparkly glove, and changing the Intrada logo to the Tsunami one?

Don't tempt me... wink

Hard to believe the same composer who 2 years later would go on n on to compose THE LION KING wrote such a lame Vangelis influenced score!!!!

I am enjoying both scores presented in this set. I happen to be much more a fan of Poledouris for sure, but I do own around 10-12 Zimmer albums of his scores that I really like. His score for WHITE FANG falls into that BLACK RAIN & BACKDRAFT territory and thus I have found myself liking his thematic and action material here. I can understand that the producers found his action cues more propulsive and intense, which apparently helped more to these sequences than Poledouris's music. Poledouris's score does have a more timeless quality in its largely acoustic setting and offers some wonderful melodies.

Except for his African scores - POWER OF ONE , A WORLD APART- I am not a fan of early Zimmer.
His synthy scores come across as second rate Jan Hammer or Vangelis.
Not until he learned to write orchestrally, most notably with THE LION KING did he rise to the level of top rate composer.
It shows that talent , when nurtured , will eventually evolve to its proper level.

To anyone that has this release, what is the sound like? Still a little disappointed with TIATTOTW CD.

YOR just saw the movie today for the first time.

Nice movie.

Poledouris' majestic score fits it like a glove - even being far from his bests works.

Zimmer's noise used in the movie is just ludicrous and completely destroys the scenes.

People who decided to use Zimmer's noise instead of Poledouris score must be deaf!
