Most directions I suppose, and if I see something for a bargain price (which I usually do) I think why not......
I do not have many soundtracks after 1990, as I tend to prefer composers work before this date.
I do like certain composers like Morricone and Cipriani for example, but have a few friends who collect soundtracks so anything I am not sure on I get to listen to before making a purchase.
And there are composers I like, but tend to prefer a certian period in their work.
Jerry Goldsmith for example...I tend to prefer the years 1970 to 1978 as he did some good
experimental work, funky Lalo Schifrin type stuff (The Last Run and Shamus for example) aswell as my favourite western scores of his; Breakheart Pass,The Ballad of Cable Hogue and Take A Hard Ride.
