Another beautiful score by one of my all-time favourite composers. This was an emotionally packed, moving, engaging film, despite being perhaps a little too long with an unnecessary subplot that could have been cut to save time. But nonetheless it was still a great film. Unfortunately (fortunately for me), yet again, this was another instance of a boring official soundtrack cover that was positively yelling to be replaced with a custom cover. So here it is:
I've never played these games, but I stumbled upon the title track of this album a while back and fell in love with the score. The use of complex rhythms, unusual instrumentation, and unexpected chord progressions makes this score an exciting listen.
I really enjoyed this film - it was pure fun entertainment that didn't take itself too seriously, but at the same time wasn't the boring ex-machina-stuffed type. Powell is always a joy to listen to, and this score is perfectly suited for the film - never too dark or suspenseful, but just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek humour and excitement that the film requires.

So I finally got round to making covers for my favourite film score of all time. I cannot begin to describe how much I love this score and the film it accompanies. It contains some of the most exciting, moving, tragic, suspenseful, exhilarating, and joyous music ever written. I imagine these covers won't be the last...
Pretty much my most-anticipated film of 2015 - and it did not disappoint. HGW's score is beautiful. The official score cover wasn't particularly inspiring, but there also wasn't a lot of other material to use, so this will have to do for now.
