  1. Mine arrived as well -- sound is stunning. Will get numerous plays over the long weekend.
  2. Wow, that clip from ALWAYS at around the 45 minute mark sounds incredible ("Saying Goodbye")
  3. What I hate about this scenario is that in relatively short order I would probably grow to LOATHE these 5 pieces of music. I suppose the trick would be to listen to one a week, and make a big ceremony out of it. Oh, well, perhaps taking this too literally. 1. "The Flying Sequence" (Superman) 2. "Adventure on Earth" (E.T.) 3. "The Land Race" (Far and Away) 4. "End Credits" (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) 5. "When You Wish Upon a Star Medley from Close Encounters" (Williams & Spielberg: The Ultimate Collection)
  4. Check out this new nighttime show running at Universal's Orlando theme park. I have to say, JW's music works really well here -- I just wish the whole show was compiled from his Olympics music.
  5. I have been a big fan of his ever since BOWFINGER, although that was a bit of an odd score. He definitely had a weird musical tic of repeatedly composing comedy scores with close variations on a simple rising and falling melody -- you hear it everywhere in those scores. Nevertheless, I do favor his comedy scores, and just wish more of them had official releases.
  6. Coincidence -- had a dream last night I was getting off a plane in Ireland, and my dream was scored with the beautiful finale cue "Back to America" from ANGELA'S ASHES.
  7. Benny Oschmann has a great new demo cue for Berlin Symphonic Strings called "The Great Sled Dog Race" that's got the vibe. Check it out on the audio demo page here: https://www.orchestraltools.com/store/collections/berlin-symphonic-strings
  8. Audio Network has a new James Brett album called Dragon Quest that I would highly recommend to all John Williams fans. The cue "The Flight of the Fairies," in particular, has a great Williams vibe. https://us.audionetwork.com/browse/m/album/dragon-quest_3463
  9. I'm really most impressed by the McNeely tracks, but there are also some wonderful cues by Debney. Great set.
  10. I'm actually thinking of going back now and watching the rest of it.
  11. I got mine today and have already given it one listen. Excellent album, great selection of cues. I actually stopped watching season 2 after the first few episodes, but I loved McNeely's score to the Alara returns home episode and the best cues are here, thank goodness. Really outstanding release.
  12. Too lazy to look this up, but who is this awful narrator on THE REIVERS? Absolutely excruciating.
  13. Just a head's up that Audio Network seems to have upgraded the sound quality of its preview tracks, which are all now 192 kbps (previously they were around 128kbps). There are some real treasures, though it takes time to find them. Joe Kraemer, mentioned elsewhere, has some good orchestral tracks on the site, as does Alex Kovacs, Jerome Leroy, Chris Egan, Paul Mottram, and James Seymour Brett, among others.
  14. Not sure if it has been noted but season 2 volume 2 score now released.
  15. Melumad is such a great talent -- It will be exciting to follow her career. I sincerely hope she gets on the STAR WARS gravy train. And don't forget SECRET WEAPONS OVER NORMANDY
  16. This is my favorite new score of the year (for film or game). Just stunning from start to finish.
  17. Loved the first track and gave me high hopes for the score. Newly released track is pure garbage.
  18. There are so many good ones. Some of my recent favorites, ANNO 1800 and KINGDOM COME: DELIVERANCE. Also Benny Oschmann THE DWARVES. I think that's a fair assumption.
  19. I love the new theme! This, and the score album for Debney's JINGLE JANGLE, are my two most anticipated releases for the rest of the year.
  20. I really didn't fully appreciate this score from the original release. Actually loathed the "Powell" mix. Listening to the DE is a whole new experience, both in terms of the sound quality and the flow of the music. Wow, I have a whole new appreciation for this dynamite score!
