    Thomas Newman - Less Than Zero (1987) [FLAC]



    Thomas Newman - Less Than Zero (1987) [FLAC]

    I posted this about a year ago with Megaupload (RIP) but wanted to update with a new link. This is one of my top three favorite scores, and to this day I can't believe it never received a full-fledged official release. Really beautiful, ethereal music that I hope to get in the hands of more people. "Early Phone Call" is such a delicate, gorgeous track. I hope you enjoy the music as much as I do. Also: great film.

    Thanks to Naigoto for the rip.

    Track List:
    1. Early Phone Call
    2. Feeling Nostalgic
    3. Zuma Beach
    4. I Need $50,000
    5. Sex At The Loft
    6. Blair And Her Dad
    7. Julian On The Stairs
    8. Going Through Withdrawal
    9. Heading To Palm Springs
    10. Rip's Hotel Suite
    11. The Cemetery (Extended)
    12. Quick Escape
    13. Seeing Blair Again
    14. The Loft's Been Trashed
    15. Julian's Dead

    Never seen this movie, but I'm as big a Newman fan as they come so I just had to have this.

    Am I correct in thinking this is a film adaption of Bret Easton Ellis' novel?
    Complete Score Wishlist:

    James Horner - Troy; Titanic
    Stardust - Ilan Eshkeri; Six Feet Under - Richard Marvin; Dorian Gray - Charlie Mole, The Fall - Krishna Levy
    Hans Zimmer - Man of Steel, Rush, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

    Yes, it is. It's a great book too by Ellis.

    This is also one of my favorite soundtracks - do you know of any others that are similar? Some I've found are maybe parts of Full Metal Jacket, Monsters and Drive (although though I thought that was maybe a little too much of a rip-off)

    Most of Thomas Newman score from late 80's begining 90's are ethereal and ambient, any Cliff Martinez score are too.
    Every film composed by Jack Nitzsche in the 80's: Starman, 9 1/2 weeks, Stand by me, Revenge, Blue Sky.

    Also you can try:
    Haunted Summer by Christopher Young
    The Saint of Fort Washington, The Trigger Effect, Michael Clayton by James Newton Howard.

    Always by John Williams also has some dreamy atmospheric tracks. I was just listening to Less that Zero -- during "I Need $50,000", I was reminded of the last 3 minutes of Zimmer's 'Journey to the Line' in The Thin Red Line.

    I have this one track from Thomas Newman's Light of Day, sounds similar:
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    It's from a very random sampler collection of early Thomas Newman scores. I don't remember where I got it, I don't know why the track numbers are off, and although it all sounds good, it is all low bit rate. But if anyone wants it, PM me (since the Josh and S.A.M. tracks are The No-no Labe1).

    It looks like the source is a CD I created in 2001 exclusively for a guy in Japan (in trade for something I wanted). I pulled together some of the (at the time) rarer tracks and fleshed the album out with some others that I liked. The Boston Public theme was a TV rip I did which I threw in. It's a mixed bag as far as quality goes. FYI, the total number of tracks was 35. Looks like some got weeded out before it got to you.

    In a similar vein but not quite the same, I would recommend Desperately Seeking Susan (also by Newman) and the Heathers score by David Newman (Thomas' brother).

    Heathers always felt to me like David Newman emulating his brother.

    Some good recommendations here. I'm checking them out now. Also discovered the full Twin Peaks collection on this forum.
    I had the previous 2 CDs Fire Walk With Me and the OST but this collection is incredible! You can recognise it's influence on a number of my favourite electronic artists.

    You really hit the nail on the head there. It's one of my favorite scores too and one of Newman's very best. It's amazing that it was never released.
