Thor: The Dark World - OST ~ Brian Tyler
8 of 10 people found the following review helpful
Thor: The Dark World is the latest instalment in the Marvel franchise. Composer Brian Tyler has taken over the reins from Patrick Doyle who composed what I thought was a really fantastic score for the first film Thor. Many people were disappointed when it was revealed Doyle would not be scoring TTDW, but I have to say at the outset that Tyler has exceeded my expectations and surpassed Doyle's score in terms of quality. The score to TTWD is huge and epic, with the sort of orchestral and choral power that you don't hear often in Hollywood these days.

Ender's Game ~ Steve Jablonsky

Steve Jablonsky is back for what I think is one of his best scores in quite a while. I'll put my cards on the table at the outset - if you didn't like his previous work for any of the Transformers films this album will not be for you. I liked the Transformers scores for what they were, which was essentially a good action romp that was easy to listen to. Some people would class Jablonsky's music as a "guilty pleasure" - easy on the ears but not that musically complex. Exactly the same can be said for Ender's Game. Jablonsky uses his usual orchestral pallet with synths and a male choir right out of Transformers. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Sony ICD-PX312 - Digital voice recorder - flash 2 &hellip by Sony
I got this after realising I was incapable of writing down decent notes from lectures and meetings, and voila this baby has solved my issues. Out the box it's really simple to use. You can be up and ready to go within less than a minute, and transferring files back to your computer are a doddle. There's different quality settings that you can use (lower quality = less space used on the recorder). In all honesty, unless you are planning on using it for recording for days at a time the best quality will suffice for most people and you will still have plenty of storage remaining. It comes with instructions of how to get a better recording quality when you are in a room (and has the option to… Read more
