I like the Alien Covenant 'Medbay' very much - awesome scene, awesome ost:

Dead civilization (especially the part of the film when the camera moves down to the stone heads, gives me chills every time), spores, and chestburster (really beautiful soundtrack).

I like the Alien: Covenant trailer music.  Very nice sounding.  Sadly it's not on the soundtrack!  I haven't bought the A:C soundtrack.

I do own the Prometheus one and I really like it.  To bad the best song was done by Harry Gregson-Williams.  Nothing against him, but, to me, it appears that someone else was hired to make that great music.  I just wish Marc Streitenfeld could have done the whole thing.  Does anybody know what I think here as a fact or are my assumptions wrong concerning Harry Gregson-Williams and the Prometheus song "Life"?

Odd entry here. In general, I think the best soundtracks are the ones that I don't notice much if that makes sense. Soundtracks enhance a movie- they ebb and flow according to the scenes. If I notice the music too much, it distracts my attention from the movie. If I am listening to the soundtrack, then I am not paying as much attention to what is happening on screen. It may sound odd, but if I don't notice the soundtrack very much and enjoy the movie, then the soundtrack has done its job.

Tracks from the Alien franchise? I'll go by film for this exercise!

ALIEN: Goldsmith's unaltered Main Title, The Recovery, and The Alien Planet.

ALIENS: James Horner's Main Title,

ALIEN RESURRECTION: John Frizzel's Ripley's Theme

PROMETHEUS: Harry Gregson-William's Life and We were Right. Marc Streitenfeld's BirthNot Human, and Hammerpede.

ALIEN COVENANT: Jed Kurzel's The CovenantA Cabin on The LakeSailsSpores/The Medbay, and Chestburster

Chesburster from Covenant is my absolute favorite. Life is a really close second (I'll never forget that first shot and piece of music from Prometheus when I was in the theater!), and I also love Goldsmith's unaltered Main TitleChesburster is just sooo beautiful and I LOVE that whole chestbursting scene, especially David greeting his creation. Aw yeah. 

I Moon Girl, wikipedia says it was indeed Gregson-Williams who composed Life. I wonder what Streitenfeld had in mind/made for those tracks.

Not a map, an invitation

Me too.  I'm sure he would have loved to write all the songs.  Maybe they just didn't have the character Ridley was looking for so they went and hired Gregson-Williams.  I'm glad we got to hear David play "Life" in the Alien: Covenant movie.  "Life" is fantastic, yet so simple.  It is so much better in the movie too, but I guess that would make sense.
