    His Kingdom of Heaven score is a triumph.

    Some people might be as familiar with that one as the theatrical cut was a lot, shorter. I love the Overture, which was literally just a black screen and an extended portion of William's music. It's pretty awesome, but not something you'd recognize unless having seen the director's cut (which is a million times better than the theatrical cut).

    Oh boy, another no-name added to this project!

    :laugh:

    Maceface is evidently not the sharpest pencil in the box.  :laugh:

    Let's refrain from the insults please, 8th. Thanks.

    So I am an idiot for pointing out that a seasoned director is going with a no-name composer.

    And he is by no means a no-name. He has done plenty of work as has been pointed out.

    This is great to hear he may be back to compose Alien Covenant, though I must say I'd be curious to hear a composer like Christopher Young, Marco Beltrami, Danny Elfman or Michael Giacchino provide their style of music to an Alien movie, evoke the atmospheric eeriness that Jerry Goldsmith (RIP) & James Horner (RIP) provided to the first two Alien films.

    I was searching around youtube for this guys music but are there any "prime" examples of his work that I should be listening too? I mean the stuff from prometheus and MGS2 was kinda ok but... meh, not really feeling it. First it is that Danny McBride guy and now this guy? I've avoided the McBride thread because he looks like a joke and I don't want a joker in mah aliens.

    Hopefully there's a lot of actual music in this film. Apart from 'A Planet' and 'Life', the Prometheus soundtrack was largely a collection of atonal blips and bloops... I suppose it worked in the film, but it makes for a pretty dull album.

    Life is a magnificent theme, very Influenced Goldsmith / sci-fi 70's. It's intimate, epic, powerful, mysterious and surprising.

    Overall the soundtrack of Prometheus is excellent:
    Alien> Prometheus> Alien 3> Aliens

    But i'm ok with a darker tone for this new movie.
