The Conductor boxset is here, flipped through the covers once. Out of the 20 I own 3 (Spielberg/Williams - anyone in Europe needs last year's release of these? :P). So I got 17 new Williams albums for 3€ a piece (and that's calculated from the price with expedited shipping), out of which, I have heard 2 (Skywalker Symphony and Swing) and out of the 15 completely new ones on first flip-through I'm really excited about maybe 7-9, and have no idea what to expect from 3-4. So it wasn't a bad purchase at all, I think.

How's the Barry?

 

I'll let you know when I get around to listening ;)

 

Based on the samples I think I'll love it (first).

I've barely heard of this. How is it?

 

Darn. Yet another Williams CD in my collection I've barely listened to :(

The Ghostbreaker is very much done in the vein of Williams' other TV material from that period but utilizes some suitably ghostly orchestrations, harpsichord and even a ghostly wordless female vocalist. Nothing truly spectacular but another journeyman's show of skill in the craft.

I don't know what people expect from us, by posting photos of their last purchase, when there is even no John Williams CD in it!

 

They don't release enough of those. The Cowboys is already in the mail.

As long as the purchase features 100 Rifles everything is done right!

Really? Are you sure that you don't "approve"? :lol:

Oh, no, Bes! You've done it, now. You've become...a JWfan hipster. You are now one serious mutha of a JW fan. There's no going back!

I love Diamond Head!

 

An Thomas and the Kind is not as bad.  The first track is absolutely not representative of the rest of the work. There are beautiful melodies in it.

That, there are, Bes. The small orchestra doesn't do the thing any favours, but, tbh, it has "am-dram" written all over it. The best bits are on the JANE EYRE boot.

 

The cast on the album is also not "A" 1. The lady that sing "Am I beautiful" and sing like an old goat... that's not quite sucessfull to my ears.

 

But I appreciated the music. It surely deserve a new recording with a new arrangement.

Listening to The Monkey King now. It's really fun! But I guess I'm too late to still find a copy of the sequel anywhere?

What Jay says above. The second score is more introverted and not as action heavy. I suppose it makes it less popular with fans and I can understand why. But I find it to be quite a wonderful album. Listen to some clips before purchasing as I don't anyone who actually agrees with me on this.

Ah, good old MM.com. The one place I didn't look - thanks. I might order it together with SPR when that comes out - though checking their shipping info, it's actually cheaper to order a single CD than two. 8 discs would be the sweet spot. I wonder what else the Labels have in store.

The composers for Anno 1404, Anno 1701, Settlers: Heritage of the Kings, Settlers 7, Drakensang, Battle Forge, Gothic 4, The Guild 2, Spellforce 2, Black Prophecy and Paraworld sent me 11 CDs with autographs... 🤩 

I think I will go chronologically...
