    Jerry Goldsmith THE MUMMY Intrada 2CD set!!!

    Believe me, they cannot have done it for listening purposes of any kind. There simply is no reason.

    Imhotep Night Boarders The Crypt Rebirth The Sand Volcano Probably one of them.

    May I correct you: They sound terrible. These people seemed to be a bunch of completist fanatics that didn't know anything about music. It's a fact that Goldsmith would have hated what Intrada did. BTW, one of the worst edits is included in the sample that Intrada provided.

    Hopefully they sound alike, cause I'm definitely not gonna let these edited end credits finish the score. Poor decision, Intrada.

    What about Lost World's Hunt?

    So, can it be assumed that both mixes are basically the same?

    John Williams: Unpopular Opinions

    That's complete rubbish! Surely, there are people that think like that, but that is as arrogant and one-dimensional as the exact opposite. There is an endless fight between artsy-fartsy and just-entertainment fanatics and I hate them both, as they're both shackled to their genres due to their narrow-mindedness. So what you wrote is basically right and no rubbish at all, but don't assume that I'm one of these idiots, just because I suggested to take the score out of Bridge of Spies. By the way, Scorsese and Tarantino are pretty bad examples, since their movies are in fact very emotional. Their films often tend to disturb the viewer so that he is having a hard time connecting with the characters, but once you've found the emotional access (rewatching the films a couple of times!) it can get very touching and involving. In the case of these two directors the effect is even more constant than in the case of Spielberg, since their films are depicted more naturally. Nothing against Spielberg (War Horse has indeed a refreshing warmth that is rarely seen among contemporary movies), but his cream pie is occasionally too sweet.

    It's interesting that they took different sources for the complete score and for the Decca album. Did they want to keep the old mix for the album or was it just a way to save time, since the album tracks were already mixed?

    Except the part in the brackets, I don't understand (or I don't want to understand) this post.

    The Western Scores of Jerry Goldsmith

    After repeated listens I have to update my Jerry Goldsmith Top 10. Alien Legend Papillon Total Recall Night Crossing The Ghost and the Darkness 100 Rifles Under Fire The Mummy Damnation Alley 100 Rifles is sublime! One of the roughest and most brutal scores that Jerry did. Musically, it's also one of his most interesting and creative efforts. Not even one cue is superfluous. That is one of the rare occasions, where every note can be kept and it's still a perfect listen!

    Two holy grails within a month is not bad! I updated the main post. So far, the only release that nobody expected was the remastered Baby. Hopefully, the predictions keep turning out to be true.

    Maybe they recorded a few transitions like they did for Total Recall. This would also explain why Intrada did this edit recreation in the first place.

    John Williams: Unpopular Opinions

    The score is polarizing as hell and while it's musically a good score it doesn't fit the tone of the film that well. The neutral and cold atmosphere is broken as soon as the first cue begins. Moreover it overemphasizes the emotions of the characters. A more subtle approach without any music would have been cool, but Spielberg is Spielberg and not Scorsese.

    Bridge of Spies would have been better without any music. That got nothing to do with John Williams, but it is probably an unpopular opinion.
