    rough cut got a reaction from Amer in Jim Bowers Caped Wonder.com 8th Podcast on SUPERMAN THE MOVIE 40th Remastered Anniversary Edition   
    Yeah, sure, but not all of us have produced the album. Also, is it reeeeeally the crystal clean sound MM is listening for when he’s driving about Hollywood? Or could it be edits, track list flow, mastering choices, etc etc.
     
    All I am saying is: I think a lot of times, it’s funny to hear people comment on sound quality - it’s good, it’s bad, too much or not enough bass, it sounds thin and so on - and then you find out they’re listening on computer speakers. It’s a bit of a contradiction.
     
    I make the same (dis-)connection between “sound crystal clear” and “in my car”.
     
    I listen to JW while driving too - but not to judge the quality of the recording. I think it sort of takes the edge of the judgement.

    I hate when people say “It sounds crystal clear - I heard it in the car.”
     
    In the CAR? Maybe not the best place for judging sound quality...

    I interpret it as if JWs influence is not final, which I’ve stated many times before.
     
    Like if he he would have to approve every single release that contains Star Wars music - he’d do nothing else except playing battlefront and watch a 1 000 hours of cartoons.
     
    My point is, when it comes to any official release of his music, I’m sure he has influence, but the final product is probably a collaboration between a lot different business partners, with different agendas.
     
    Maybe by ‘management’, MM was referring to a licensing deal prohibiting it from being released more than on the II/III set.
     
    But who knows? Maybe MM will clear it all up in the future.

    Get the II\III set for the exclusive source music from STP.
     
    Get IV for the new JW themes that aren’t available any where else.
     
    On top of that, you’ll be getting a sh*tload of good Superman material that you’ll grow to love.

    Great listen! Many thanks!
     
    A bit too much music squeezed in there for my taste, which disrupts the flow of the conversation (and was it very loud?), but fine work from all who contributed.
     
    You really get a sense of how much MM toils over getting everything right. I am thankful to know of his hard work, it makes the release so much more special.

    I’ve no love for none of those mentioned, but it’d be a hell of a lot more interesting than this.
     
    I keep hoping for Lights Camera Music Vol 2 where they include the Oscar-arrangement of The Book Thief and the new HS and The Princess arrangement.

    I don’t see any point in 96khz/24bit releases. And I’m not just talking about Superman, I mean in general. CD quality is the perfect middle ground.
     
    Anyhoo, I am super excited for this release! Can’t wait to hear it! If it sounds as good as the press release states...
     
    “...this outstanding reissue – simply put – is like hearing SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE for the very first time!”
     
    ...then WOOHOO bring it on!

    Am I the only one who didn’t care much for The Rebellion is Reborn?
     
    Not that it is a bad score - by any means! - but in hindsight, it’s probably my least listened to SW score.
     
    It never settles for a mood, it jumps around too much. None of the musical ideas seem to be given time to gestate or are given room to breathe - it’s always on to the next thing.
     
    I totally get that people are in to that, but it’s just not my type of cup.

    Music in surround is overrated.
     
    But I guess that’s a preference.

    If the themes in Superman are corny, then so are the themes in Star Wars.
     
    Williams applied camp where camp was due (for example, March Of The Villains).

    I mean, I don’t mind Zimmer’s earlier scores. And, love it or hate it, but he really changed the game with Inception. But his Man Of Steel score... I mean come on! Where’s Williams? It’s like not using the Bond Theme just because the changed the actor!
