  1. What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Ben-Hur (Tadlow re-recording) by Miklós Rózsa: While I had some reservations about purchasing this as I already owned the FSM boxed set the reinterpretation with modern sound is excellent and the Prague orchestra is completely attuned to playing Rózsa. Almost needless to say that this is a classic in every sense of the word and one of the best of the Golden Age. Basic Instinct (Quartet Records release) by Jerry Goldsmith The Terminal by John Williams

    Indeed. The Borg music is very effective both the mechanical assimilation material and the whispering Borg Queen music.

    Muscular stuff to be sure. But curiously after listening to it for a while now it is one of those scores that I prefer in a shorter tighter listening experience. The full score has quite a bit of less than arresting underscore before we get to the meat of the music. The Wolfman by Danny Elfman: This is one of those Elfman scores that I tend to keep on steady rotation on my playlist. I adore the very moody Gothic horror vibe which is very intelligently handled by the composer while tying everything together with his simple yet effective Wojciech Kilar-esque main theme.
  5. That is because in classical world they actually re-record new versions of the same works and these interpretations can vary and thus provide new illumination on the works of all these composers. But here it is just the same recordings just spruced up a bit and then resold. I don't deny that an audio update might reveal new things in older recordings but I doubt that at this point such things would be a mind blowing revelation. Give us complete scores already Disney!
  6. I am certainly not shelling out cash to buy this music again on OST programmes when I already have the expanded versions and prefer them anyway over the shorter albums. I highly doubt that the soundquality alone could convince me otherwise. Plus this stuff was just released by Sony not long ago so it just feels redundant, more so for the Prequels whose OST albums have been available all this time.

    Yeah there was already a thread on this piece of news so I merged yours with it. And it seems it will again be the OST albums, nothing more nothing less but this time with the original ESB LP-programme first time on CD.
  9. How ever did you miss that it is a re-recording? It literally says Symphonic Suite From The Original Motion Picture Score performed by The National Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Charles Gerhardt on the cover.
  10. The original of course. The remastered is in the bonfire, remember.
  11. You should play The Immolation Scene in the background while doing it.
