Possibly my favorite work of his since The Thin Red Line.
!!!
Hearing this excites me. Thin Red Line is certainly my favourite from Zimmer as well.

Just saw this tonight. A very, very ambitious movie. There's a lot of cool stuff happening, but its reach definitely sometimes exceeds its grasp (in a way, this is somewhat thematically appropriate). Plenty of fantastic set pieces and a good amount of compelling drama, but things tended to get cringe-worthy pretty quickly whenever anyone started talking "science." I'm a pretty huge science nerd, so these moments took me out of the film. I should definitely say that I think most of you will be pleasantly surprised with Zimmer's score. Refreshingly different from the bombast for which he's famous. Possibly my favorite work of his since The Thin Red Line.

Jacaszek- Treny- Haven't listened to this in years, and I forgot how good it is. Classical/ambient with an unconventional glitchy feeling. Lots of violin and cellos, with rather mournful female vocals.

The first listen to Middle Distance was disorienting for me, but fascinating--  it's unconventional, even for ambient music. The second time, things started falling into place. The third time, everything clicked, and I loved it. An amazing album... the sound design is always one step ahead of my expectations, so it's always a fresh experience, no matter how many times I hear it. It's always just beyond my grasp, if that makes any sense (and it probably doesn't).

And Richard, keep up the good work with your reviews :)

And thank you, thirdsystem, for being such an enthusiastic fan. I was meaning to check with you if your CD had arrived, but it sounds like it did. Enjoy the mix.

Hint: another free track will be released next week.

Pete Namlook/Tetsu Inoue - 62 Eulengasse

A quiet moment in a busy weekend sitting listening to the ambient masterpiece that is...
62 Eulengasse

In memory of Pete Namlook. One of my favourite musicians, inspirational and influential in my life. Two years today since he was taken and sadly missed . Thanks for the music Pete.

A big shout out also for Tetsu, wherever you are I hope all is well.

From what I've read, it doesn't devolve to just guns and explosions, and has been compared to Robert Zemeckis' Contact. Yay!
I've also read it's heavy on exposition, which is a problem for some. That doesn't bother me though. I'll be seeing it in a few weeks once the crowds die down.
