  1. Rethink your rushed decision to go on the show if you can't handle it!
  2. Saw an image or two on Steam and they didn't tickle my fancy. Now I'm sure I will look into it better!
  3. Nah, the UK won't accept it, it can't be that simple!
  4. Huh. I rewatched the movie and listened to the OST for the first time and this is exactly what made me decide to try a test round or two with this set before buying it.
  5. " the 50th anniversary release on 27 September release of The Beatles’ Abbey Road album in a suite of new editions. This returned the album to chart summits around the world, including in the UK, where Abbey Road reclaimed the No. 1 position after 49 years and 252 days. The achievement broke The Beatles’ own Guinness World Record previously held by Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which went back to No. 1 in June 2017, following its own 50th anniversary reissue, after 49 years and 125 days. " Lol. Nice! I heard Abbey Road for the first time in full last Wednesday btw, and I must've listened to it at least 20 times since.
  6. Huh. Not a bad way to continue the series, and very quickly too! Now issue the modern listenable mixes on CD and digital please
  7. Eh, to me it's much less than the sum of its original parts - or even either of them on their own. Out to Sea/Shark Cage Fugue, on the other hand, is one of the most inspired decisions of genius I've ever heard!
  8. It's such a blatant homage to the terrible AotC scene that it took me right out of the film both times I saw it!
  9. From Russia With Love - fantastic. Young Frankenstein - that, too.
  10. Usually an OST has good reason to be included. Dracula's is in better shape than the score tape and features different mixes (Night Journeys with choir!), Superman's has never been available on CD in the US, Schindler is a special case, SPR was pretty much complete already and wasn't worth the extra effort (I don't just mean making a program but buying OST cues back and licensing things), Jaws and Fury are completely different recordings, Monsignor has significant mix differences and it all fit on one disc anyway, etc. Now for the others, most of them just feature combinations of other cues that don't even always work very well, JW didn't even have anything to do with The Cowboys OST if I remember correctly, etc. They would literally be nothing but a repeat of material already in the film score program or bonus section (usually arranged worse, too) and thus are not worth the effort or price hike.
  11. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence.
  12. From my analysis thing I count 9 proper (maybe not complete) statements plus some more traces of it outside of the concert arrangement. He had plenty to choose from! I love how relatively alien the big bombastic concert pieces are in comparison to the sparse Fawkes or Dobby, or the usually low-profile Chamber appearances. It's like he felt they would never be used again so he went out of his way to show their full potential they were never allowed to reach inside the score!
