    The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    Well yes, I guess it means Universal is on the labels' side.

    Um, yep. We definitely got ourselves overhyped for that one. Giant 'meh' to the entire thing. I guess MV's remark that the 'implications' would get us salivating weren't going to apply to everyone.

    Yes I would've said Bond if DAD hadn't just happened. Just like I'd have said JPIII if the box hadn't just happened. Oh well, 2 days and this is all over....

    Just read the last three pages - nothing makes any sense!
  5. Jay - please stop telling people off for not reading every post of a huge thread, with a tone that implies that the information is incredibly obvious. it's getting tiresome. People miss stuff now and again...

    I think there's a lot of taking things too literally in this. The Variety thing strikes me as a joke, unless it does turn out that they're working on something super amazing. Edit - or as mentioned, it's part of a wider anniversary thing. I also reckon the awesome vs meh thing is just MV's way of saying some will like it, and some won't, just like any release. I rather like it - rather than putting his PR hat on and saying 'everything is awesome!' in a rosy-tinted manner. Although I agree it means this particular release won't be a massive title. As for what it is.... god knows. I hope it's not the Mummy series, simply because I think the iso score and boots of the first two make expansions way less important than they could be. Maybe the logo/branding stuff is the 'Universal Monsters' stuff that applies to films currently in production.

    Powell vs. Giacchino

    Indeed. Two fine Jurassic scores are not enough to overcome an otherwise largely uninteresting filmography.

    John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    It might be less contentious if reviewers explained their opinion on the score but didn't actually give a star rating. If you're massively into electronic/ambient music you could be fascinated by some of the stuff he gives a frisbee to. I'd personally give Solo 4 1/2 stars. It's not perfect, but it's hard to imagine how anyone would've done a much better job.

    Film scores that impressed John Williams

    I heard differently in the period following his composing Rio De Sangre, that he was looking for jobs but had been out of Hollywood for too long. Maybe he's doing other stuff now...
  10. First proper listen, and have now identified the memorised his new main theme. I'm liking it enough that I just added it to my Amazon basket. Maisie and the Island is particularly beautiful and I'm hearing some Lost in track 2. I have no problems with Giacchino continuing with JP
  11. Maybe someone here has the stems and doesn't want them leaking. Only theory I have right now.
  12. It's worrying timing. Is someone here so anti-bootleg that they reported it?
  13. I got the two I mentioned. Why would the account suddenly go like that? They've been up for months...
  14. Yeah I just checked out The Raptors Appear and it correctly ends before the final measures of the concert piece. Somehow, this person has the film stems. And it's great to finally have the film version of Ripples! This should've been on the set.
  15. How's that happened? I thought you had to loop bits with part of the mix removed to get the film version.
