Filmtracks On Cue

On Cue for February, 2014:

Blue Icon
2/22/14 The Hunt for Red October  (Basil Poledouris) - Updated Review, With Additional Album
Buy it... on the DVD and watch the film if you want to hear Basil Poledouris' intelligent blend of orchestra, synthetics, and choir in the dynamic, crystal-clear sonic environment in which they were intended to be heard.
Avoid it... if you expect much of the majesty of the score to carry over from the film onto the muffled and dry presentations on any of the currently available commercial and bootleg albums, including the official 2013 expansion.

Blue Icon
2/16/14 Days of Thunder  (Hans Zimmer) - Updated Review, With Additional Album
Buy it... if you desire a cross between Hans Zimmer's later bad-ass attitude and electric guitar-dominated style of Drop Zone and the easy-going romantic sensibilities of Green Card.
Avoid it... if the composer's somewhat dated, early hard rock material leaves you as cold as Days of Thunder does for those not interested in moody hunks and ridiculous cars.
