  1. Can't wait for this one.
  2. Screen names on JWFan: VOTE NOW!

    Then at least they'll still be alive.
  3. NEW | John Williams: The Conductor, 20 CD box

    Summon the Heroes and American Journey are essential John Williams albums.
  4. NEW | John Williams: The Conductor, 20 CD box

    These are the ones I don't have: 4 I Love a Parade (BPO) 5 The Green Album (BPO) 6 Joy to the World (BPO) 7 Night and Day (BPO) 8 Unforgettable (BPO) 10 It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing (BPO) 16 Gershwin Fantasy (Joshua Bell, London SO) Although I think one of my Cinema Serenades is only a CDR so far... I'd have to check. I picked up Music of the Night a while ago for next to nothing on Amazon, but I haven't actually listened to it yet.
  5. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    I'm not a fan of Christmas Star, and I don't like the song version of the other song (it's underscore variations are much better). But stuff like Duncan's Toy Store and To the Plaza, Presto are standouts, and define the score's more bustling character. I also adore the big orchestral setting of Adeste fideles, though I believe Williams didn't arrange that personally.
  6. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    It repeats key moments of the first, but the bulk of the score is original, and quite different in character.
  7. I'm still waiting for E.T. and the other discs in my planned order to be in stock simultaneously at so I can finally place my order.
  8. The Official Pop and Rock Music thread

    4 posts above yours...
  9. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    4 diverse scores? HP:PS by John Williams, HP:CoS by WIlliam Ross, HP:POA by John Williams, but very different and diverse compared to the first one, HP:GoF by Patrick Doyle. That's diverse!
  10. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    I saw it once. I found it very impressive, and I'm still not sure I ever want to see it again. Depends on what flavour of Netflix you use, I guess. I've only once used it in the browser, and never on my phone. I usually use the app on my Grundig TV, which fortunately simply doesn't have this feature. It always keeps the credits running, full screen, with no audio interruptions. The only downside is that with Netflix productions, you have to wait out a few dozen international credits after the regular credits before it sends you back to the menu with the link to the next episode (if you're watching a series).
  11. Do we need a Negativity Sub Forum?

    No we fucking don't! What a shitty idea.
  12. Andrè Previn scolds Williams (once again)

    Never. Quite possibly, yes. I think it's mostly a language issue that really puts me off (which is why I'm still confused as to why she's so popular among Germans, though). I probably won't become a big fan of her voice, but I'm sure there are roles that I find her better suited for. I did hear her live earlier this year in Strauss' Vier letzte Lieder. I'll stick to my Janowitz recording.
  13. The Doctor Who Thread.....

    I started watching the series between the Smith and Capaldi eras. I'm in the same boat as Pieter. I'll wait to see if they're going to do a complete, affordable box set with all 4 (+ War) Doctors. Otherwise I'll have to start picking up the individual releases.

    No. But it's really good.
  15. Andrè Previn scolds Williams (once again)

    I like her in some things (she's fine in the LOTRs, for example), but in general I'm not very fond of her voice, and while she's a celebrated Strauss singer (even in German-speaking countries - she seems to be a favourite of Thielemann, among others), I've disliked her in every Strauss role I've heard her in.
