  • Ep. 189 - Howard Shore's 'Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring'

    Again, there is no question that Howard Shore's 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy (along with his 'Hobbit' trilogy) are some of his best work to-date. This track is especially epic, dynamic, gorgeous, dark, but also heartfelt and emotional. There wasn't one person in the theater that wasn't shedding a ...

  • Ep. 186 - Howard Shore's 'The Rings of Power'

    Tolkien fans around the world have been waiting for this show for quite some time, and even though the amazing score is composed by Bear McCreary, the producers brought back Howard Shore to compose the 'Main Title'. The last time Shore had composed work for The Hobbit/LOTR was back in 2013, so it...

At the Oscars, the film won Best Picture...

  • Ep. 182 - Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow's 'Men' (feat Arvo Pärt)

    Alex Garland is one of our favorite directors for a variety of reasons - creative storytelling, visuals, direction, but also how he integrates music in each of his films. In this 2022 folk horror film, we were excited to listen and experience Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow's atmospheric score, whic...

Featuring Andy Garcia, Uma Thurman, and John Malkovich, the story follows a murder case that focuses...

  • Ep. 179 - Marie Antoinette feat. Bow Wow Wow

    There is no question that Sofia Coppola's 'Marie Antoinette' turned heads on its release in 2006 because of some unique and new artistic choices done at the time. She was able to blend a very 18th century inspired score by Dustin O'Halloran with a modern contemporary soundtrack - a unique almost ...

    Duncan Jones' 'Moon' is nothing short of thought provoking, and beautiful to watch. There is no question that Sam Rockwell's performance is incredible throughout the entire film, in addition to Clint Mansell's beautiful score which propels the narrative forward.

Boy, did we ever get one massively awesome score! Everything about t...
