    New JW Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Music!!

    I think it's awesome, but I do hear the edit @Holko mentions. I bet this piece was longer as Williams wrote it and was perhaps cut for the video.

    Justin Hurwitz's FIRST MAN (2018)

    Here's what I came up with. I think this plays very well. In addition to trimming the ambient cues, I moved Docking Waltz and End Credits to the front, like they were concert suites being put first. I also trimmed most of the theme heard in End Credits outside that track because that theme doesn't really develop and feels redundant by the end. End Credits gives it enough development in that one track that that is good enough. I kept most all of the instances of that harp theme/motif, though. Maybe that would seem redundant to some, but I think that gives the score its moody heart. It plays well reinforced, and maintains a strong narrative This clocks in right at 40 minutes.

    Justin Hurwitz's FIRST MAN (2018)

    I’ll probably try my hand at a playlist taking out all the ambient electronic-only cues. The problem there, however, is that the playlist wouldn’t have a proper beginning. I was thinking I’d move “Docking Waltz” out of sequence to the start. It has that feeling like it’s the opening of a symphony, and I think it is jarring mixed in with the moodier material where it is in the middle of the album. Additionally, I think it would work well to bookend the album with the more romantic sections of the score, ending with the landing cues, of course. Thoughts?
  4. I would be disappointed if the release didn’t include PoA, but I realize I am spoiled.
  5. I had to go to my friend’s house because my internet was not stable enough to get the HPSS leak without the download dropping. Good times
  6. I read that linked thread and still don’t know what smnol is. I’m resigned to my fate
  7. I guess now is as good a time as ever to say I have no idea what smnol means
  8. I wish I could have sex as satisfying as the build up in "The Love Scene (Extended Version)." 👌
  9. Varese seems to have flubbed the shipping on my set, and didn't send it accidentally. They printed the label, which generated the tracking info, but didn't actually put it in the mail. They said they are overnighting one tonight, but it's still a bummer since I paid for the expedited shipping, which it now appears was worthless. I'd be more forgiving, but this is actually the second time in a row this has happened with them. Oh well, at least I will (probably) get my set tomorrow.
  10. Morricone has previously criticized Tarantino. It's not really out of character.
  11. Sounds empty to me but I guess we’ll see
  12. I definitely believe he said those things, though. Just maybe someone told him after the fact it was not politically wise to have done so.
  13. Is anyone who is shipping throug USPS having issues with the tracking updating? Mine seems stuck saying “pre shipment,” suggesting they printed the label but didn’t actually put it in the mail. It has said that for two days now. Frustrating since I paid for the expedited shipping...

    Favorite Star Wars finale and end credits music?

    The Force Awakens is the best. TPM is the worst.

    THE LAST JEDI - Disney Records OST

    I can’t imagine there is a “complete” edit of Escape that isn’t substantially compromised by edits. I’ve combined the FYC, iso, and OST, and the most organic edit I could make is 9 and a half minutes. The additional material is splotched all over the place like a Jackson Pollock painting. It doesn’t work as it is.
