New iTunes Purchase.



A couple days ago I bought "Invincible - Two Steps From Hell."

I like it, anyone else got it? Know of any other albums similar?

itunes will tell what's similar; put it in search area, and the look toward the bottom of the page for other "like" albums.

Use streaming audio programs such as lastfm & pandora. I'll search on lastfm for a particular song I heard, then play that artist's "station". Doing so plugs that artist into your lastfm library. They suggest new artists as you build on your 'likes'.

While not as dark or techish...
  • Western film themes of the 50 were so grandiose. I think The Big Country ought to be the national anthem.
  • Bernard Herrmann wrote many great semi-classical style film scores.
  • Aaron Copland was the great American composer. Modernist. Fanfare For the Common Man was covered by ELP.

Oh, I know about the similar stuff. I was just looking for opinions from others. The like or similar stuff isn't always that great. For me the better selections always seem to come from people I know. However, none of my friends listen to any form of classical music, so I thought I would try here.

Wow, that title cut's pretty darn majestic! All I can think of are metal equivalents from the likes of Dragonforce, Iron Maiden, etc. I swear I've played some RTS video games with that theme.

Am I Not Human starts off kinda like a Tangerine Dream song, so check some Tangerine Dream out. My favorite albums are the Sorcerer Soundtrack and Rubicon.

Here's a good cut from Sorcerer:

If you dig the Tangerine Dream, you might like Jean Michel Jarre.

Yeah, I can see it, different tones and the music is more kind of eighties digital.
