The Official Howard Shore Thread

The opera? Yeah, it kind of did. They did two performances, I think. And no one bothered to record it properly, not counting some vocal elements and small camera like video recording of one night performance. So no real material exists anywhere. Sadly. Don Davis at least has a CD recording of his.

But, as I said, Goldenthal recorded some stuff in Poland last year and it's relatively cheap to do it, so who knows.

Yep. However, while Dead Ringers will be presented in complete and chronological form, apparently the Naked Lunch and Crash releases will only feature some bonus tracks at the end of the original OST presentation (don't know if they represent all of the unreleased music or if some cues will still be missing, though).

Dead Ringers is the most satisfying expansion of the three and the most accessible (also the only one presented chronologically).

The additional tracks from Crash aren't essential but do present interesting takes on the material (First Crash, Hangar, the piano demo).

I'm not a big fan of Naked Lunch and the expansion has done little to change that!

Dead Ringers is indeed the best of those. It's a surprisingly tender and gentle score for a Cronenberg film. And because of 43 minutes running time it never outstays its welcome.

Unlike Jim, I do like Naked Lunch. But the expansion changes very little.

Have you heard the Cell by any chance?

I've only heard a cue from Naked Lunch. I'm not sure I'll enjoy the whole album, as the jazzy component seems a bit too intense for my liking. :P
