    James Horner - The Spiderwick Chronicles NOTE, this is HIGH quality VBR version (This is NOT the low quality transcode that has been floating around here)

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
    (as requested by Arthierr in another thread and he asked me to post here)

    This is actually the first James Horner score I ever listened to and seeing as I assume most of you are at least slightly familiar with Horner, I will post something about the score itself not the compser.
    (From Soundtrack.net Review)
    Personally the best track of the whole album has to be "Flight of the Griffin". This track is the side of Horner we all love, both melodic, brassy, triumphant, and down right a joy to listen to. After a solid week of continual listening, this track was the one I came back to over and over again. I feel it is the track that best represents this album as a collective. It has such wonderful string and brass work, with humor turns but the high wood winds.

    You know Horner wrote it by the use of orchestral bells at their finest. This I think is a defining characteristic of Horner's and one that I enjoy immensely. He just seems to have a knack for writing uplifting yet at the same time dark pieces for the bells. And though the flight of the griffin is triumphant is ends on a rather sad note, no pun intended, but given the pace of the movie and the books its the perfect music for the scene.

    For the movie this is a great score, it fits right in with the movie, and even the books, having read them I could tell from each piece of music what part of the books they were in and how it played out and Horner really did do this film justice, but was that ever in question? The composer was nominated for nine oscars winning two. Is this score worth the listen, sure, would I buy it, probably not, I would just borrow it from a buddy if I wanted to hear it more than twice.

    Arthierr, I noticed one of your earlier compilations included a song from Sword of the Stranger. I just watched that and LOVED the score. Do you have it and if so could you please share?

    Thanks for the score, Sirusjr. I suggest that you edit your post to clearly mention that it's not the bad quality pseudo-192k version available several times in this board, but a true HQ VBR version you posted. Otherwise people will see it and just say: "Spiderwick? Meh, I already have it." I just tried your version and the sound quality is indeed superb.

    I'll post Sword of the Stranger in very HQ (lossless, I believe) tonight.


    Billie: Thank you for posting The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming.

    Sword of the Stranger

    Music by Naoki Satō

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.] (Thanks to Sirusjr)

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    Sword of the Stranger (ストレンヂア 無皇刃譚 Sutorenjia Mukōhadan?, Stranger Mukou Hadan) is a Japanese animated feature film directed by Masahiro Andō and produced by BONES studios. The film follows a swordsman with no name and a golden-haired assassin as circumstances draw them towards a mysterious young boy.

    Hunted by the Ming from China, young Kotaro and his dog meet a nameless samurai ("Nanashi") who is haunted constantly by ghosts from his past which has lead him to avoid drawing his sword ever again

    Among the Ming is a fearsome Western fighter named Raro, whose only desire is to find a worthy opponent. When both groups clash with a Sengoku-era feudal lord, a proud general, and monks torn between faith and survival, the reason behind the Ming's pursuit tests the bond between Kotaro and Nanashi.

    What's this like, Arthierr? Never heard of this Sword of the Stranger. Is it kind of like a Joe Hisaishi style Japanese-orchestral dealie?

    I posted several packs with Naoki Satō's music, [Hidden link. Register to see links.] and [Hidden link. Register to see links.], notably. He usually does big symphonic stuff. This one is in another of my hard drives, but I remember some tracks are fully orchestral with (obviously) a japanese touch.

    I'd say that is an acurate description of it. It has a number of soothing strings/woodwind orchestral tracks as well as some pounding percussion focused tracks. It really stood out when i watched the anime last night so i highly recommend you check it out.

    Thanks for sharing sword of the stranger arthierr!! I can't wait to get home and listen to it.

    Hi to everybody,

    I would like to ask you something. Do you know about the existence of Lady In The Water - The Complete Score or Complete Recording Sessions?

    I know that there is a cover for this but I have never seen the real music. In case that someone has this version of Lady In The Water by JNH, might upload it?

    Nope, sorry, it doesn't exist. The creator of this cover says this (translated from french):

    Lady In The Water - The Complete Score (provisional)

    This project is purely hypothetical because to date, I still have not heard of any Complete, Expanded, Promo, Recording Sessions, etc ..., this (perfect) score. I rely solely on the music in the film. We must not forget that the film strip is always "squeezed" or accelerated once placed on the DVD (For example this film was released with a time of 1:51 and once on DVD it's 1:45 ...). Thus the band music heard in the vision of the film on DVD is not recorded at the origin, hence, a "Ripples In The Pool" on CD from Decca Official Records lasts 1.49, in the film, about 1.40 .
    The original post is here:

    Billie: Thank you for the Iwashiro track. It's very beautiful and relaxing.

    Arthierr, i tried to decode those wavpak files for sword of the stranger and they don't seem to work very well. Is there software you know that works with wavpak besides the general wavpack frontend? I want to convert them to mp3s for portable listening.

    One of the best free audio/video convertor is mediacoder:

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    I just tried to convert to mp3, and it failed because of the jap names, but when I renamed with english characters it succeeded. Hence I suppose you had the same problem.

    If you use mediacoder, I recommend you use Lame and preset extreme or insane as output.

    Here is the romaji Tracklist of Sword of the Stranger

    01 - Josho
    02 - Rasatsu No En
    03 - Chiisana Tobosha
    04 - Deai...
    05 - Juga
    06 - Ugomeku Yami
    07 - Shonen to Inu
    08 - Yorubenaki Monotachi
    09 - Sokoku No Oni
    10 - Higenmu
    11 - Tsukanoma No Yasuragi
    12 - Kagera Naki Itazura
    13 - Na Mo Naki Kizu
    14 - Tsukiyo No Seijaku
    15 - Kegareta Chi
    16 - Utakata No Hibi
    17 - Meimo No Chi
    18 - Mitsudomoe
    19 - Yurusarezaru Tamashii
    20 - Aganai No Yuki
    21 - Bushin
    22 - Shippu Senya
    23 - Kakeru Ken
    24 - Ihojin No Yaiba

    Yesterday I converted these .wv files easily to wav and mp3 using XRecode:

    I just precise that with Mediacoder, you don't need to go:
    .WV > .WAV > .MP3

    You can go directly:
    .WV > .MP3

    The other advantage is that it keeps all tags after conversion.


    Billie: Wow! Another great album for our enjoyment. Taro Iwashiro is a very nice composer, and this OST seems very interesting. Thanks a lot for posting.
