In my toilet. My ass is the specialty label that score deserves.

I'm sure if we use a good Kleenex, some detergent and the spirit of determination, we can recover it.

The JP3 score is perfectly fine, if not lacking any memorable new themes. I prefer it over JW1 even.

But a complete release would have to include the film edits of certain tracks, or else I dont care.

(and the pteranodon cage intro, even if that was taken from somewhere else)

Has there been a release of JURASSIC WORLD or JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM in a standard jewel case and NOT a digibook (likely not in the United States since I am pretty sure it has been a digibook)?

 

I don't think so. All Back Lot Music releases I've seen so far have digipacks.

Yeah same here! The cage intro was either library percussion or some sort of isolated percussion from the first score. I'm not sure which.

 

I'm not optimistic that it would be included though, given some recent astounding omissions.

Been listening to this quite a bit in the car and am really enjoying it. Seems I'm one of the few who do though. Why does Gia seem to be so reviled by film score fans?

Because John Williams fans are insecure about their favorite composer’s alpha status.

I’ve not once seen a convincing argument for how Giacchino is a poor composer. 

He's not outright poor, just not as good as many others but given a lot of opportunities for dream projects that other composers arguably deserve more. 

That acknowledged, give me Giacchino over Desplat or Tyler or Rupert-Gregson Williams any day, to name a few jugheads.

I've only ever really experienced this on JWFan, it's just plain old snobbery. Love him, hate him, just indifferent - fine, but proclamations of skill, lack of skill are going to be subjective.

 

Ironically there's only one composer who dwarfs all others in the amount of praise they receive on this forum and his name isn't even John Williams, it's Jerry Goldsmith!

How can you tell what Giacchino deserves, or what anyone else deserves? Clearly, he was given these projects (especially in the last few years) because of the repertoire he had built over the last decade, and friendships with filmmakers and composers alike. If they didn't like the music he was producing they'd have easily gone to the next guy in line.

I will admit that he has done a heck of a lot of movies in the past decade or so. I mean, look:

2018: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Bad Times at the El Royale, Incredibles 2, NASA Piece

2017: Spiderman: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes, The Book of Henry, Coco

2016: Zootopia, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Doctor Strange, Star Trek Beyond

2015:Jupiter Ascending, Tomorrowland, Inside Out, Jurassic World

2014: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

2013: Star Trek Into Darkness

2012: John Carter

2011: Cars 2, Super 8, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

2009: Star Trek, UP, Land of the Lost

2007: Ratatouille

He's been an industry staple for a while now, and it seems he's been scoring films left, right and centre, especially looking at the past four years.

He's already signed up for Jurassic World III and Spiderman: Far From Home.

He's been busy, and for all the scores he's composed there are definitely good ones and also not as good ones. But he has an impressive repertoire, and everyone at the very least should recognize this.

I'd just like a bit more variety, as for awhile he was getting every other big blockbuster assignment. 

Each of the assignments have given Giacchino an opportunity to do a variety of styles!

You missed out Speed Racer!

I like it more than the first one too.  In fact, I think I like all Giacchino sequel scores more than the original, barring the same one you pointed out, Incredibles 2

Initially I thought Incredibles 2 was slightly disappointing, but I've been revisiting it a bit lately and think it's a fine score, especially the raucous and walloping build-up to the finale. I just wish it had included some of the quieter cues from the film.

I used the word “roteness” intentionally.  It was a perfectly fine score - effective in the movie, fine on album.  It’s also exactly what I would have expected from a direct sequel score to The Incredible - nothing more, nothing less.

It's my second favorite Jurassic score in general, in terms of album listening (Lost World is still tops).

Now that's going too far!
