    Meh, this sort of thing is why digital releases feel so much easier. CDs get scratched occasionally in the mail, and I have cases whose teeth are half-broken.

    Update on ripping:
     
    1-Current new computer :Last few tracks unrippable, skips like crazy.
    2-Old Window 7 computer :Seemed to have ripped correctly but I haven't listened to all of it.
    3-Other computer I found in another closet :  Did a better job than computer 1 but I heard some skips.
     
    So 2 out of  my 3 working CD rom drives rip it with skips , now making it official the c.d. is defective.

    Not sure if this is scarier than missing teeth...

    After some searching I haven't been able to turn anything up.
    Whoever it is, the pianist is especially incredible in the 'End Credits'

    Difficult. I'm terrible at tracks in general, but even moreso in a case like WOTW which is such a coherent, singular piece. It's more a set, dystopian mood that ebbs and flows throughout its running time. The whole OST is really like one long track. But I guess if I had to choose, it would be "The Intersection Scene" which is mentioned by several others already.

    Hard not to choose the huge set-pieces, which, especially as presented on the Intrada album are simply phenomenal. The big three -- "The Intersection Scene," "Escape from the City," and "The Ferry Scene" -- are, in my mind, peerless depictions of musical panic and violence.
     
    But this expanded release is giving me appreciation of some of the less obvious, more atmospheric corners of the score. So here are three underdogs:
     
    "Surveying the Wreckage/Watch the Lightning"
    "Woods Walk"
    "Harlan Ogilvy"

    From the LaLaLand Intrada release:
     
    "The Intersection Scene" (CD1 track 3)
    "Boston Street Finale" (CD1 track 23) - I cannot really decide between this and "Defeat and Reunion" (CD1 track 22)
    "Epilogue" (CD1 track 25)

    Yes, you're exactly right! As a matter of fact, I was watching that featurette yesterday, and made a screenshot of that moment myself....
     
    Love this, by the way. John Williams conducting "Escape from the City"... Just wow. Here it is: 
     
     
     
    Well, it's not limited to a certain set number of copies is what I meant.
