This week and really for the past two months, I've been addicted to soundtracks. This really came about when I hear Joss Whedon talk at school. Yes, he came to my college where I was studying for my MFA. He shook my hand. For a good five seconds he knew my name. It was epic.
Anyway, his advice was: listen to soundtracks. Since then, I think I've purchased four or five soundtracks and am contemplating the Newest X-Men one.
So a few quick hits:
Ramin Djawadi: Falling Away (game soundtrack: Metal of Honor)
Patrick Doyle: Crewe and the Soldier (A Little Princess)
John Ottman: The Attack Begins (X-Men Days of Future Past)
