    Yeah, I collect those. Just adore the arrangements. The first "Hooked on classics" were pretty basic in terms of arrangement, but later he applied a marvelous personal style to the songs, and "The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Plays Abba" (Disky DCD 5246) for instance is probably one of the best example of pop-orchestral arrangement I could have heard.

    If someone appreciate I'll upload more.

    The anime The Slayers had a lot of great action music -- it's got an adventure/mideival feeling to it, while most of the tracks from Next are more intense and emotional. Here's a few of my favorite tracks (more soon, if people like) Good stuff!

    The Slayers OST 1 - 05 - A Great Sword Battle Without Warning!
    The Slayers OST 1 - 08 - Legend of Holy War
    The Slayers OST 1 - 14 - A Heroic Action For You/Dragon Slave! (the first half is rock, while the second half of this track is better orchestral)

    The Slayers OST 2 - 02 - Lina Inverse Goes to the Front!
    The Slayers OST 2 - 03 - Revival of the Evil Lord
    The Slayers OST 2 - 08 - I'll Give You This Dragon Slave!
    The Slayers OST 2 - 15 - The Time of the Decisive Battle Has Come!

    Note: The Slayers OST 1 and OST 2 are very rare, maybe out of print.

    Slayers Next OST 3 Sound Bible - 06 - Prelude to Annihilation
    Slayers Next OST 3 Sound Bible - 10 - Hellmaster Fibrizzo
    Slayers Next OST 3 Sound Bible - 11 - Lives Fall, Lives Left Behind
    Slayers Next OST 3 Sound Bible - 12 - Darkness, Naught or Chaos
    Slayers Next OST 3 Sound Bible - 13 - Lord of Nightmares
    Slayers Next OST 3 Sound Bible - 15 - Unstoppable Emotion

    Thanks for your contribution! It is much appreciated.

    Many excellent cues. I particularly enjoy the 3rd ost where we can hear that Osamu TEZUKA gets a bigger orchestra and clearly masters it better. The music reach then a really high level of power and grandeur.

    Another update for your enjoyment! I really adore these cues, and for this reason I wanted to share them with you. If you also have some particular action cues you very much enjoy, please post them here. They'll be much appreciated.

    ***

    Alan Silvestri - Super Mario Brothers - Police Car Chase.mp3
    Typical good Silvestri. A very structured cue, as if it came from a suite.

    Basil Poledouris - The Touch - Destiny Awaits.mp3
    An incredible almost 13 minutes long piece, starts slowly in a quasi-religious tone, then the percussions come progressively, and finally it's time for some big heroic action! The last great score of Poledouris.

    Brian Tyler - Alien Vs Predator - Requiem - Decimation Proclamation.mp3
    Another very long and unbelievably intense cue. This can be considered as a model of action-horror music, even if Tyler sometimes "borrows" from other composers (4:07 comes directly from KRULL by James Horner).

    Carolin Petit - Untamed Africa - Migration.mp3
    A rare score from a documentary. A nice ostinato induces an exciting tension during the whole cue. Remarkable!

    David Arnold - Stargate The Deluxe Edition - Mastadge Drag.mp3
    A very joyful cue! This is probably the most memorable cue of Stargate.

    Hans Zimmer - Cool Runnings - The Walk Home.mp3
    Not big fan of Zimmer, but this one is great. Heroic, glorious and joyful.

    James Newton Howard - Waterworld - Escaping The Smokers.mp3
    A classic from JNH. Back when he started scoring movies he needed to impress Hollywood. Mission accomplished! We can feel his ambition and energy in this piece.

    Joel Goldsmith - Kull The Conqueror - Deep Freeze.mp3
    Personally I find that Joel is far from his father (musically), but this score has some really interesting moments, this particular notably. Also nicholas Dodd (fabulous orchestrator/conductor) did a magnificient job here, as usual.

    John Debney - Chicken Little - Chase To Cornfield.mp3
    "Big John" sounds much like Silvestri in this cue. But it's Debney anyway, with all his talent.

    Marc Shaiman - George Of The Jungle - George To The Rescue.mp3
    I just adore this lively and emulating piece! (Run, George! Run!). Shaiman puts so much life, humor and energy in his music.

    Thanks Tsobanian.
    The Rock contains much action, and this cue is one of the best.

    Yes this "uncut" version, is one of the best action cues that I have ever heard in my life.

    Here's a new update everybody. In this one I tried to find more RARE cues than before (it's rather unoriginal to do a compilation including The Matrix because everybody has it already ). So you'll find here globally lesser known cues, but great anyway.

    ***

    Bennett Salvay - Jeepers Creepers 2 - The Big Battle.MP3
    A superb action/horror cue composed by a young and talented composer. Really chilling.

    Classic Rock - Gloria.MP3
    A grand symphonic arrangement of the original song.

    David Arkenstone - Quest Of The Dream Warrior - The Journey Begins- Kyla's Ride.MP3
    This composer is wonderful. I'm a fan of his music. He does a lot of fantasy/new-age stuff. His website : [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    H. Sakimoto & M. Iwata - Ogre ~ Grand Repeat ~ - Revolt.mp3
    A true orchestrated version of this superb theme. Loved it in the game, love it more with a real orchestra.

    Hirohshi Takagi - Beet The Vandel Buster Animation Soundtrack - Confrontation~ A Desperate Situation, Be Driven Into A Corner.MP3
    This is probably the best cue of this anime score. Extremely energetic and powerful.

    Kouhei Tanaka - Busou Renkin Original Soundtrack - Busourenkin Hatsudou!.MP3
    He's one of my favourite composers. And this is one of the best theme he composed. Absolutly superb.

    Masashi Hamauzu, Shiro Hamaguchi - UNLIMITED-SaGa OST - March in C.mp3
    A very nice march, joyful and emulating.

    Robert Folk - The Neverending Story II - The Next Chapter - Flight Of The Dragon.MP3
    Folk composed an out-of-this-world score for this movie. This piece is a pure gem, an epic cue in the great tradition of eighties film music.

    Takayuki Negishi - Card Captor Sakura Original Soundtrack - Sakura No Theme II.MP3
    Sublime melody in this one! This is one of my favourite anime music cue. Fresh and Upbeat.

    Yamashita Kousuke - Hana Yori Dango Ost - Dash!.MP3
    And last but not least, a wonderful piece by another of my favourite composers. An incredibly beautiful melody which makes you feel better.

    Enjoy! And I have many, many more rare great orchestral action cues, as good or better than these. You just need to ask.

    You mean you'd like some action/horror music ?

    I can find that. I'll make a nice compilation of scary cues and post it this week.

    Yes brother, I'd also like to have some cues with scary-spooky-eerie-queer-uncanny-darksome-occult mood.


    2 themes that I love from the Biohazard Orchestra Album.
    They are quite enough scary...

    Wow, that's scary. Better avoid listening to this in the dark.
