I think a major reason he disliked it is because he constantly compares it to Kamen's Robin Hood score (a timeless classic on its own). Yet the fact is that is a different kind of Robin Hood film, by a different director with different musical taste. You cannot just compare Marc with a legend like Kamen, you're inevitably gonna be disappointed if you do. For Marc, an RC composer with a background of electronics-influenced scores like American Gangster and Body Of Lies, to write a pure orchestral and appreciably well-orchestrated score like Robin Hood, that too with a 90 piece orchestra, is a very commendable achievement. We cannot expect him to write an instant classic in a situation like that, but at least appreciate what he *has* achieved here. It is by no means a poor score and one of the much better ones coming from RC. I'm sure he has a great future if he keeps up the quality and works on improving.
"Do you think that maybe he's right? That we're all just a bunch of dolts who have no idea what good music sounds like?"
Not blaming Clemmensen here (he didn't explicitly say anything of that sort), but may I know who are these elitist snobs to decide whether we are a bunch of "tasteless dolts"? Who are they to decide what we should and shouldn't listen to, being afraid of them labeling us as having "cheap tastes"? I love a variety of composers from John Williams to Alexandre Desplat (and even some of Miklos Rozsa!), but that doesn't mean I shun modern MV scores. Hans Zimmer remains my favourite modern composer, and I am proud of that. Who says I cannot appreciate both traditional orchestral and more modern, electronics based scores? If I enjoy any score, why should I lie and say I dislike it? To please these elitists? No, thank you.
Music is all about enjoyment and relaxing your mind and soul. There's no point in *forcing* yourself to enjoy something you don't. We have different personalities and enjoy different kinds of music. Don't let anyone dictate you about what you should listen to have "classy taste", because they have no right to do so. Listen to your heart and enjoy what pleases your soul. :)
Thank you for such a considerate and well-thought out response. I know Clemmensen didn't say anything about tasteless dolts; my use of that was more an extension of a general disdain he's shown for Remore Control "fanboys." I'm afraid I have a tendency to go to extremes when I'm emotional. Thanks again; much appreciated. :)
"Women of Ireland" was written by Sean O'Raida. Why he isn't credited as composing this music is incomprehensible to me -- possibly another case of "traditional" meaning "if we ignore the composer we don't have to pay royalties"?
Hello and thank you in advance - I enjoyed seeing the film last night. I did indeed love it. In particular there is a short piece of music that was wonderful. It is when there is a fire side dance and it is kind of a balad of sorts. Cate and Russel dance and then other couples too join in. It is markedly different from the other musical episodes.
Can you tell me the name of it and the composer and how I can find this in its entirety? Thank you for anything you can come up with.
hi sir.I really dont want to take your time.just thanks a lot for your marvelous musics.I havent heard robin hood soundtrack yet,but base on your former music I am sure this one is like the others.the soundtrack of gladiator was excellent!!!!!.sent by email@example.com.
In the scene where Robin dances with Marian there was about 30 seconds of music that I seem to remember from years ago. Can anyone help me with the name of this piece of music as it is not on the soundtrack.
sadly the soundtrack where robin hood and hes merry men attack Godfreys men in Nottingham isnt on this album. The reason its sad was because that was a really awsome soundtrack. hope there will come a complete score for this. there was some other unreleased soundtrack in the movie that i hope to hear in the future :)
