  1. Something odd on disc 2. Track 22 is "The Conversation" and track 23 is "Inside". That's a little fast, I think. Shouldn't there be something like a "Kiss" between?

  4. Only the most enfranchised fanboys have any clue what the Old Republic era is all about. The period is almost entirely unknown to the casual Star Wars fan and moviegoer. It'd be a very rich area in the series' lore to explore. Definitely enough material to sustain a film trilogy.

  6. Statement from La-La Land on FSM: So glad you guys are excited by this release. To be honest with you, we didn't even think it was going to happen until we did Braveheart a few years back. We are deeply honored to have been able to bring this dream project to life with the full cooperation of Mr Horner's estate, agency, Fox, Paramount, Sony Music and Lightstorm (and we got it signed off on just as they started shooting the new Avatar films!). While it would have been nice to include the song, we were frankly told that IF we wanted to include it we may want to schedule the release for the

  7. It was somehow predictable that they wouldn't twice create a fully new cover, but one fully new cover and one familiar old fashioned cover. I like it! It's the opposite of E.T.! And the idea to include a dropped 2LP presentation ... just brilliant!

  11. I noticed that the Last Jedi soundtrack is now available for preorder on iTunes... just purchased my copy in advance. Man, only 3 weeks left to go... my nerd anticipation for both the score and film has been set to maximum overdrive. Can't wait!

  12. What a great thread... just discovering it now. Bummer that a lot of the YouTube content has been pulled, but appreciate the timing & track references. This is actually one of my pet loves about JW's scores -- just these little moments that he drops in there, sometimes with these amazing themes that are never heard again. And it's always perfectly set to the story beats in the visuals (as if the musical accomplishment by itself wasn't enough). Not sure if it was mentioned earlier, but I feel like track 8 (He is the Chosen One) of the TPM soundtrack is basically an e

  13. Absolutely thrilled, and looking forward to the first appearance of Inside (kind of coming full circle to when one of my earliest purchases was a new record called Pops in Space, which included the SE material). The crossover arrangement of the theme will be missed - Meco's was disco, JW's much better one was closer to jazz funk - but it sounds fine on Audio Fidelity's 2015 release and I can see how it wasn't necessary here. I'm really glad the Maestro got to realize his original LP plans... with much better sound and editing. Hands down my fav score, or musical work of any kind, ever.

  15. I'm sure I'm not the only one who repeats short musical moments (15 seconds or less) of a Williams' piece. I've discovered probably a close to hundred of these moments in Williams music, especially in his Star Wars scores... a few of them I enjoy more than the full cue. 2:36 - 2:47

  18. The Snowman by Marco Beltrami. The film might be indeed a trainwreck but the score is something else entirely. Bit Herrmannesque, bit Elfmanesque... it is just perfect for a thriller set against a wintry backdrop. Very classy. One of 2017's very best (not a difficult task, by the way). Karol

  21. Indeed. It has more to do with the heavy influence of English music on his work. You hear strains of Britten or old English hymns all over his scores.

  26. I woke up groggy this morning (forgetting all about the announcements) and was reading through the Die Another Day thread when someone mentioned "over in the TITANIC thread" and I was like Seriously great news to wake up to. I knew it was going to happen someday, just not this soon...if you can say twenty years on is 'soon'. It'll be very interesting to finally hear everything. I just re-read the following interview with Don Davis which is a great insight to the process: http://www.ign.com/articles/2000/07/17/interview-with-composer-don-davis-part-

    late, but in time yet.

    Well, I'm a brazilian middle school teacher without any technical knowledge about music. I visited the site for at least 4 years, just like the FSM. The first score that took my attention was "Batman Returns" in the late 90s, then "Jurassic Park" in the early 00's, but I only took seriously the taste for film music in 2010 watching "The Last Crusade ", "The Wolfman", " PoC: At: World's End (I never saw everything, I just caught my eye on it)" and the" Bicentennial Man", even though I do not really like of the movie. Maine is a reference to Stephen King's hometown.

  34. The presentation might look weird at first glance, but its brilliant to listen to. It's a similar situation to ET, where the complete score is too long to fit on one disc, and the shortest cues are on disc 2 instead. If you notice, the first disc is only non-chronological in the first half; Once they escape and make their way up Devil's Tower its all straightforward. Cues combined on disc one stem from how Williams wanted the music presented back in 1977 for his planned 2LP set and really improve the listening experience by replacing abrupt endings with segues to music that fits

  35. This looks like a definitive presentation of this score (how couldn't it be, with Neil at the helm!), and I hope it means Neil will get to keep going and do TWINE and TND next!

    THE POST - SCORE Thread

    Also it could be that the score is MIXED very badly so that's why it was not standing out. It's been true of most JW scores in the past 20 years I think that Williams style of music, when mixed too low, doesn't do it any favors

  47. I want to talk about how much I fucking love the rhythmic trumpet phrases you can hear in the bike chase cue when you see them flying over the houses. Where you can see all the pools. I'm pretty sure this is the only arrangement of the flying theme to include this. Really makes this climactic performance of the theme special. At 3:36, 3:40, 3:45 and 3:49
