Nah, that's allright.  It's cool that you think it's that good.

gah, they are all so good for what they stand for thats its hard to compare. I almost want to put Lady in the Water, The Village and Signs as a tie for first.

This sums up how I feel pretty well.  I love all of these scores, and they are all so perfect for the films they score.  I think Signs has the best "scary" motif, but as far as the CD listening experience, trails just a bit behind the other two.  Deciding between The Village and Lady in the Water for the best is so hard, as they are both so haunting and beautiful.  I'll give a slight nod to The Village for being the more consistently beautiful of the two, and of them all, but the edge to LITW as the most complex and thematically diverse of the JNH/Shyamalan scores.  A brilliant soundtrack!  I just wish I could say the same about the movie itself....  :-\

Yea, that is what I thought about The Village and Lady In The Water soundtracks.  I think Signs will get passed in it's scariness by The Happening soundtrack.

The Village in last eh? Interesting. That score blew my mind, and it made me think about film music in ways I never did before.

I love the variety that turned up in this thread.

I said it has been very difficult to list them in order for me...
I'll have to say that they are ALL beautiful scores and each one of them contains amazing tracks (actually "The Gravel Road" is one of my favourite tracks among all these scores).

I think it's very interesting, the diversity that turns up among Night fans, I think it's great.  Some people like the soundtracks that are great with his movies, I think they all are, others like how they sound outside of the movie, the diversity is great.

I finally listened to The Sixth Sense score, after getting it in the mail yesterday.  I've been listening to it a lot ever since to engrain it into my mind.  Having heard all the scores now, The Sixth Sense will remain at the bottom as far as a pure listening experience.  However, it works very well in the movie, and as far as a "scary" score goes, is right up there with Signs in that regard.  The lack of a very distinct theme, and the very sparing use of it are drawbacks to me from a comprehensive look at the score, but I can appreciate it's role in the movie.  Can't compare to The Village in beauty thoguh, nor can it compete with LITW in the majesty and thematic complexity department.  Still, I'm glad to have it as a part of my collection now!

Yea, but that's what's amazing about James Newton Howard, his scores are, for the most part, great listening experience, but they also are perfect for the films.  The Sixth Sense is at the bottom of my list with Signs because of the same reasons as DILinator, but I still love it as a soundtrack.  The same with Signs.

1. The Village
2. Lady in the Water
3. Signs
4. Unbreakable
5. The Sixth Sense
6. The Happening

Jeez, I dunno... It's kind of hard to create an order. They all deserve four star recommendations so it's weird to rate some of them as the "lowest" since I still love them deeply and have listened to the several times. In any case, though, I think this is still close to how I would rank them. Which is very weird... especially considering how amazing I think The Happening score is. It's weird ranking it so low!

I think the Village is the best. ANd that's all I have to say about that.
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

Yes i do :)

I take my favorite movies very seriously. So much so, that Gattaca and The Village have just left everything else behind. (including donnie darko which is in third place) Those are just 2 movies that happen to be perfect (for me) in every way.  They actually have somewhat similar subjects too.
