Mine was more dramatic, but thanks.


True, but when you’re on thin ice with metaphors, you should stop digging.

Sounds more like Hans Zimmer than John Barry to me.

What made Barry such a great composer was his gift for melody and harmony. This isn't very melodically or harmonically complex. I have nothing against Junkie XL but this sounds like a lot of Hollywood music today -- keyboard-originated, avoidant of too much melody or harmony (so as not to "interfere" with the drama) with some polishing by an orchestrator.

Junkie XL is the new John Barry like Brian Tyler is the new Jerry Goldsmith or Michael Giacchino is the new John Williams.


This is very true. But IMHO, Junkie, Tyler and Giacchino are the best of the more recent composers. Max Richter too.


George Kallis, Ludwig Göransson, Bear McCreary, Justin Hurwitz all are better than Tyler and Junkie and probably at least on the same level as Giacchino or better.

Ballsy questioning statement. My goodness John Barry dude!

More like Conrad Pope is the ‘new’ John Barry. Any listenability in Junkie’s recent works can be credited to him.

Ohhhhh, I didn't know Conrad Pope had been orchestrating for The Junk in recent times.
Interesting.
That linked track still reminds me of John Barry.

I suppose it's similar to the way Julian Nott's The Wrong Trousers is awash in "Barry's" blends and textures, thanks to Nic Raine.

By the way, how have you been, Kev? I'm long overdue for a visit to Liverpool!

Hey Paul, I'm fine thanks.
I just mentioned you this past weekend.
We stayed in Ruthin Castle for a few nights and they had an authentic medieval banquet on Friday night, with lots of ancient instruments and people dressed like characters from The Lion In Winter to entertain the guests*
It looked pretty cool and I said to Carole that you would love to be involved in something like that.
Hope all is well in your world and yes, a trip to our fayre lande would be indeed most goodeth.

we didn't attend it, we just wandered upon it after our evening meal.
