    It’s pretty interesting to hear the evolution of some composers. I was listening to the Dark Knight Rises soundtrack today and I was struck by how many elements Hans Zimmerman took from his work in Modern Warfare 2. It’s really quite interesting to hear all the different variations

    Yeah, I think he’s a tad overrated (OK, maybe a little more than a tad), and he also gets a lot of undeserved credit and hogs the spotlight on a lot of productions, but while he may not be the messiah of music he does compose some nice tracks.

    I feel like almost all Hans Zimmer’s music in the last few years could be mashed up with no one able to tell the difference. Inception is distinct, but his sound/style is very repetitive.

    American Idiot by Green Day

    Talk about a blast from the past. I literally haven’t heard some of the songs on the album (aside from the obvious Boulevard of Broken Dreams) for years. It was nostalgic, but also kind of sad. It’s hard to believe how fast time has (seemingly) past.

    I like Green Day and did not know it was uncool to do so. I guess I’m extra uncool. shrug

    American Idiot was my first bona-fide rock album, so I WILL ALWAYS LOVE IT, no matter how uncool it is. I also enjoy the back record, and they put on an awesome live show. I don’t listen to them that often, but it’s always fun when I do.

    21st Century Breakdown, however, sucks. :P

    It’s the album they released after American Idiot. Maybe it doesn’t SUCK, but I was disappointed compared to its predecessor.

    I keep listening to Thrift Shop and Timber lately. I don’t mind the first one so much, but the second one has Kesha in it (or Ke$ha, whatever) and that disturbs me.

    Reading the lyrics to Timber aloud makes me both laugh and cry at the same time. Even though the lyrics are horrible though, I still have this weird attraction to it. Maybe because I like the idea of Kesha getting mowed down by a falling tree while too drunk to use autotune.

    This from Thomas was Alone. It just gives me warm fuzzy feels, possibly because it reminds me of a particular part in the game that always makes me happy.

    Sad that it was cut, I loved the “feel like a million” song in the sequel. Villain songs are a cornerstone of the industry.

    eta: I really like how this song hints at the plot for the sequel as well, that would have been a clever tie-in.

    The chorus was eerily reminiscent of “Are You in or Out” from Aladdin and the King of Thieves, which might have added weight to the decision to cut it.

    Not sure if it’s me or the singer, but it took me almost to the end of the song before I realised it was a cover of Cat Stevens’ Peace Train, not a song about g-strings.

    Completely unrelated, but Brian Setzer’s new rockabilly single, Let’s Shake, is exactly as awesome as every single other rockabilly song you’ve ever heard.
