I'm rocking Aliens and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. I'm on a bit of a James Horner binge.

The Social Network soundtrack. Trent Reznor for the win.

Too right! The music that plays as a sort of love theme for Aragorn and Arwen in the flashback / flashforward scenes is - I think - Shore's most beautiful LOTR music of all.

I only own the original trilogy albums. That up there is the special edition LOTR ost, music equivalent of the EE dvds. Was gonna buy them but they're pretty expensive and hard to find.

Yep, you're looking at 40 each, but they're worth every penny.

Good, but very short. A little over half an hour and it's hard to get into the flow of if when you have tracks at just 31 seconds long.

Probably! I'm at work now so can't access Youtube. But the track I was thinking of is called 'Evenstar' on the original single CD soundtrack. On the Complete Recordings set, it's part of a longer track called 'One Of The Dunedain'.

I also second your endorsement of the Complete Recordings sets. They're not cheap but are worth every penny. I own all three and cannot recommend them highly enough. The best thing is, Shore's back to score The Hobbit, so there'll be more great music to look forward to at some point!

Yep, Evenstar was the one I linked to, A fantastic piece.

I've lost count of how many times I've listened to the complete recordings. Many hundreds. The book that came out last year about the music was fascinating.

Gimli - bit of a long shot here, but thought I'd ask anyway. When the Complete Recordings sets came out, there were PDFs placed online which were annotations to the music (and with slightly different content to the physical booklets that came with the sets). I thought I had them all but turns out that I don't have the one for Return Of The King. They're not all online any more because the contents are now covered by the Doug Adams book that I haven't bought yet. Any chance you've got the ROTK PDF?

On a related note did they ever really explain why Shore didn't score Kong in the end?

I guess Jackson and Shore just weren't on the same page in terms of what was required for the film, although I'm not aware of any public comments from Shore on the matter. Although it must've been frustrating to have composed and recorded a very lengthy score only to have it dismissed, I'm sure he was at least well paid. But they can't have fallen out that badly, given that Shore's going to be scoring The Hobbit. (I'm sure you're aware that he also makes a cameo in King Kong, as the conductor in the New York theatre scene.)

Also, for what it's worth, the original Production Diary when Shore was still the composer remains accessible here:

Hope they release that score one day. It'd be interesting to compare it to James Newton Howard's take.

BelfastBoy, you have a PM!


The rejected King Kong score is actually very good. I think I can see why it wasn't suitable, but there's a lot to like about it. Howard's final score is also very good though.

Listening to this at the moment

PMed you back, thanks for that. In terms of those annotated score PDFs, the original website is still active, but only the FOTR one is still there to download.

As for King Kong, has Shore's rejected score ever leaked? I had a very quick look last night and there are bootlegs out there that, based on others' comments, are actually falsely relabelled music from other films.

I was thinking about Gabriel Yared's rejected score for Troy, which was removed because (apparently) Warner Bros got negative feedback from a very small number of test screenings in Southern California. Yared was understandably pissed off, because he'd spent well over a year working on the project, and received (in his opinion) absolutely zero support from the director or production team - so he fought back. Firstly he placed some of his Troy music on his website, until it was removed after legal threats from Warner Bros. Then he - allegedly - allowed certain journalist friends to hear CDRs of the score, which then - somehow! - accidentally on purpose found their way onto the internet. End result is that pretty much anyone who's ever heard Yared's Troy music would agree that it's far better than the generic effort that James Horner provided at very short notice. (I'm a big Horner fan and would defend him a lot of the time, but even he can't step in and come up with magic with no time to prepare.)

The point of this little ramble? There are ways of releasing rejected scores, especially one like Shore's for King Kong that must exist in complete form. There's bootlegging, or else the very rare occasions when studios consent to release rejected scores (such as Jerry Goldsmith's Timeline).

Gimli your saying you've heard it? If so where did you hear it and do you know where I'd find a copy? BelfastBoy, I agree ive had a look and don't quite trust those bootlegs ive seen on the web as they may just be fakes.

Listening to this whilst playing Half-Life 2. It works brilliantly.

Just to add to this, the most common fake Howard Shore King Kong bootleg usually turns out to be 6 tracks that are actually composed by John Frizzell, and from his soundtrack for a rubbish 2007 horror film called Primeval. Unless someone can convince me with evidence, I'm pretty sure that Shore's actual King Kong music has yet to leak in any form.

You have me worried now. Yeah, I think I've heard it. It was a few years back on Youtube, they've been gone for ages, but they were the real deal I'm sure.

At this very moment in time, it's Inception - love the soundtrack, brilliantly atmospheric.

Rocketeer - James Horner

This score really only has two themes that are rearranged in lots of different ways, so it's repetitive and best not listened to from start to finish. Having said that though, the two main themes are lovely and best enjoyed in isolation - the end credits track is particularly fine. (As usual though, Horner inevitably employs his trademark rising finale first heard in - I think - Wrath of Kahn and frequently rehashed many times since. However, Rocketeer's version is superbly recorded with some thunderous drums at the climax.)

I fecking love the chase music from the scene where Riggs is running barefoot down the road. The track is called Hollywood Blvd Chase and it is the track I listen to the most on this cd. Oh, it's stopped, must play it again
