  1. I have no idea whether mine has a CD player. I just connect bluetooth.
  2. There's that, yeah. I've had the odd Zoom remark about what's in my background on the wall, and it's rather cool to tell people that it's my soundtrack collection.
  3. Mine are all on a shelf, but for all the (lack of) looking at them I do, they may as well be in crates.
  4. Either ripped on my computer, or on my phone. Never the actual CD.
  5. That would be from Silvestri's Forrest Gump.
  6. Probably just a question of when, but we can try to stave off that for a while I have a number of scores for which I've got the album and a complete version or session leak. Off the top of my head, I've done that with The Haunting, Alien: Resurrection, Hidalgo, and the first Narnia score. In all of those cases, the complete score is long and I don't know it that well, so having the OST to come back to is nice. Also in some cases, if the OST is nostalgic or nicely put together, I'll keep it anyway, but that's not common. More common is that I dump the OST, but keep the
  7. RotS, easily. While I may not be clamouring for the whole score, the album has sufficient omissions, and I enjoyed the film sufficiently, that there are a handful of unreleased moments that to my knowledge have never leaked. Such as the full opening battle, some quieter moments later on, and, the funeral scene and Anakin's transformation into Vader. Honestly, leaving that latter cue off the album must be the ultimate headscratcher. JW must've decided it didn't fit in with his 'musical 'vision' in some bizarre way. It's rather astonishing that in the age of d
  8. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I definitely felt it wasn't going to be Wyatt Earp style. JNH seems to have largely moved away from big sweeping, melodic scoring for dramas. His scores for drama movies in recet years such as Pawn Sacrifice and Roman J Israel (that's a good film) really haven't done anything for me, but along comes what appears to be a gritty western, and it's more engaging. However, I tend to like modern westerns, such as the Magnificent Seven remake.
  9. I'm a minute or two in, and liking it already. Soft, textural and ambient.
  10. Oh, I'm not even talking about the inclusion of the OST on a second CD. Rather the original OST being the main presentation, with a few extra tracks to make it complete. Just seems the ideal way to please everyone, hence why this release strikes me as a good compromise way for you.
  11. Fair enough, that's your personal assessment, but it doesn't factor in to a general suggestion that the sound might be improved, as it often is. If one of the labels re-released some long OOP album wth the original program, and added a handful of tracks at the end for completists, would you buy that? Has Intrada's 'score/extras' model appealed to you as a concept at all? I picture you being someone who can't stand extra tracks even existing on a CD you buy (no matter how segregated they are), whereas really it's a way for the label to make both camps happy.
  12. Most expansions get some sort of sound upgrade? I don't know this score at all - I'm just assuming it will. No need to be so confrontational.
  13. If he says JW sucks, half the forum will take offence because he's being criticised in a public arena. Why else would there be a thread dedicated to pointing out celebrities who publicly praise him?
  14. It's not as if Thor is someone who insists a CD must be played in a CD player, and that bonus tracks are an unnacceptable interruption... he'a got a digital copy. But I suspect there may be a 'I don't buy expansions' motivation here.
