    It is a very heavy and present score. Perhaps its relentlessness bothered you while watching the films.

    Do you typically enjoy fantasy scores?
    No, I don't really have preference for particular genres. I like emotive and/or melodic scores, regardless of what sort of film they come from. I think epic stories are easier to compose to, and therefore are more easily emotionally affective. It's harder to deeply move an audience with a score to something more intimate and private in scale - that said, when it's done well, it's incredible.

    Why, do you like certain genres, yourself?

    Hopefully I don't end up liking the LOTR scores TOO much. I'm a sucker for expanded editions, and those things are expensive! Gah. Thanks a lot!
    I know. I'm kind pissed off that my editions are missing some of my favourite pieces.

    I was just reminded of how much I specifically love horror movie scores.

    I have a real hard time getting much sustained enjoyment out of rock/pop/etc after having listened to film scores for so long. I want to gush about the genre, and go on about what I love about it, but maybe I'll wait to see if anyone even responds to this thread. Self preservation and all that.
    There was an XM station I stumbled across with this music a couple of years ago on a long drive. I was really enjoying it. I haven't been able to find it since however.

    Nah. It wasn't the scores that bothered me, but the movies themselves, after a while. Conan is a very heavy and present score as well, and it's one of my all time favourites.

    Looking at my iTunes library right now, I do have a lot of fantasy scores, but I have a lot of music from other genres as well. 93JC was saying that he liked sci-fi scores because the composers have a lot of freedom not being constrained my any particular style, and I feel the same way about fantasy scores too. I think score for The Dark Crystal mirrors the incredibly exotic nature of the universe that the movie takes place in very well. It's so exotic that it's almost unsettling. Conan is the same in that it's not really rooted in any particular style. It's one of a kind.

    If you want some real classics, see Prokofiev's scores for the old Eisenstein films.

    From Alexander Nevsky:


    From Ivan the Terrible (music starts ~0:45):


    One of my more recent favorites:
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    How about this one? Probably the scariest piece of movie music in my opinion. I really like the movie too.

    The Dark Crystal's theme is very beautiful.

    Since others were speaking about synth scores, one of my favourites:

    I don't know about Prokofiev's work with Eisenstein but Meisel's score for Battleship Potemkin is amazing. I saw it once in a theatre with a live symphony orchestra and it was one of the most incredible viewing experiences I've ever had.

    It's great.

    Halloween, Exorcist, all of those, I remember playing horror film scores one night on Halloween to scare children instead of the idiotic "haunted house" noises.

    I found this a couple of years ago, it's kind of cool:



    Tubular Bells and the use of O Fortuna in The Omen were absolutely epic.
