    Yeah I think that is what Shore was going for...familiar but fresh and new as well. Can obviously hear the returning themes and cues from the previous scores, as well as brand new music created for the film. I think it's brilliant myself.

    Ah yes ... that's what I get for posting after a couple glasses of wine, then forgetting what I posted. :p

    Back on topic, though, I've listened to the score a couple of times now. And, with respect to the pacing of the film, it seems like it's going to be much slower than the book ... at least in terms of how long it takes to move from one chapter to the next.

    And before that, with his brother Tim in the NZ band Split Enz. But that was before most of the people here were born...

    Anyway, Neil's been writing great stuff for quite a long time.

    I've never done a mainstream Hollywood movie in IMAX, the only times I did IMAX were about a decade ago when all they showed were documentaries in museums, but Trek and Hobbit together might just be enough to get me to fork out the money.

    But he's always been more songwriter than vocalist. It's a bit weird to hire him for his voice.

    It should be noted that the Empire link contains only the standard or regular two disc release of the score, not the special edition which contains the bonus tracks or "Blunt the Knives".

    It seems to have been removed now. I didn't get around to listening to it yet. :(

    Um, no, he's a songwriter, singer, and plays multiple instruments. He's a musician, and a damn talented one. He didn't just pop over to a studio and lay down vocals on someone else's music.

    No need to be so defensive. I meant that he is reknowned for his songwriting abilites rather than for his vocal range, and it's absolutely true.

    They seem to have pulled the actual link to the score, or something has tripped up my browser. The graphic is still in place as are the links to purchase said score. Yet the link to play the score is not there


    ETA: Oops.... seems mooch already noted that
