Considering facts stated above and the fact that Cal's SotM is a feature and not a forumtopic at itself I will post one more Release of the Month (for february)

I will then move my postings to the forumsite Maintitles where it is more appreciated.

RELEASE OF THE MONTH JANUARY

TROUW MET MIJ by Moritz Schmittat.



Score for a Belgian comedy in which Moritz's party music serves as underscore for the drama in the same time.
Great traditional big band feel and hommage to the way Italian scores were constructed in the '70's and 80's with a central theme performed in many different orchestrations.
It is a lighthearted and fun listening experience by this young multi-awarded composer who should have won the Discovery of the Year at the last WSA (according to the public).
He was elected likewise previously at the Transatlantyk festival in Poznan.

I shall see if I can restore SotM again. As it was done previously "an editors pick" is not what it is anymore since I reintroduced it in 2012. Doing that is hard to do. Everyone has a different taste. We would need a commitee and discussion to get a nice album that represents SST.


So let me come clean about my method. I found a nice solution to the above problem. The reason why I was secretive about the method is that I was afraid of abuse. But on second thought it is not a big deal:

I just use our rating system!

The soundtrack with the highest score of the montly update wins. This way the community itself picks the SotM! So now that every one knows: RATE THE ALBUMS HONESTLY!

I am also interested in what community find hidden treasures in their latest finds! I suggest an own forum topic for that? This subforum is for discussing soundtracks anyways. So discuss! Smile

In accordance with a previously published longlist I can hereby give my personal TOP15 of Best Scores 2015
This list is the result of listening to over 400 soundtracks released in 2015
They were judged as standalone art form based on creative composing,orchestration and being a pleasant listening experience apart from the medium it was composed for.

Please give me your comments or questions, I'll be delighted to share my thoughts.

I'm definitely not in a position do make my own list since I haven't listened much to 2015 releases, but there is no doubt I personally find "The man from U.N.C.L.E." and "Winter on fire: Ukraine's fight for freedom" as very good listening experiences as stand alone music (haven't seen the movies).

Thank you very much for putting that list together, i can agree on Ori, although it seemed a bit lengthy on my first listen-throughs. But it really has some nice songs and really grew on me, especially after i bought and played the game. What I heard from The man from U.N.C.L.E. seemed nicely light and enjoyable. I will definitively check out the rest we have here. BTW how did you listen to all these scores? Via Spotify?

Yes, most of the released scores can be found on Spotify.

I finished my TOP15 of Best Scores 2016
It was a time-consuming task with over 420 scores I reviewed, what came down to a longlist of 121
Then the hardest thing to do was picking out 15 favorites.
The ones who made it to the list stood out to me on creative merit and making it a pleasant listening experience as stand alone piece of art.
I'd appreciate some feedback
