  1. Surprised to see that the entire boxset is already on Tidal!
  2. LLL has replied to say they'll be sending replacement cases to me when they get back in January. As always, it's not the problem that matters but how it's resolved. Fantastic notes by Mike as always. The music sounds great and it's surprising how much like Williams it all sounds. Goes to show how much of an impact that "adapted and conducted by" credit can have. It's an interesting release to be sure - never thought I'd be satisfied with an official expansion that included sound effects in some tracks due to the lack of clean elements, but they actually work for me. I'll try the suggested chronological playlist. Suppose I actually need to watch the film now!
  3. I really like it, but I have an irrational dislike of the fade in/out on the OST and LLL set.
  4. Excitement of having received this and Always in the post today somewhat cooled by both cases being pretty smashed up! Oh well, just the chance you take with ordering online from overseas I suppose! A little surprised it was just a jiffy bag rather than a box for two sets though.
  5. Another great episode, as always @TownerFanand @mahler3! Just the little nudge I needed to order the set. My wallet "thanks" you ;).
  6. Things like the Potter box, Star Trek: TMP, ET, Close Encounters and all the other grail releases they've given us are going to be very hard indeed to top. Still, although there's not much here I'm personally excited about (I might get Fiddler though), it seems like a decent mix of releases that are bound to satisfy a lot of collectors. Just maybe not this particular crowd
  7. Letter boxes in doors over here. Just little flaps. Also got it in a padded envelope but it was too thick to go through the letterbox.
  8. Probably thought it was the safest place for it if none of my neighbours were in to take delivery for me.
  9. My copy arrived today (along with LLL's Schindler's List) while I was at work. Came home to a note from the postman to say the package was in the dustbin (trash can) so I had to go bin diving to retrieve it...nice... Anyhoo, the sound is blowing my socks off! Listening to Surprise Attack as I type and it sounds incredible.
  10. Ha, thanks! When not obsessing over scores I've also been building a new PC over the last few months
  11. Shipped! Hopefully I'll have it by this time next week. Heavy couple of weeks for me with this, Schindler's List, Eiger, The River and Monsignor. Going to need bigger shelves soon!
  12. Yeah First Contact is definitely a new master. They still use the old one for the commentary tracks and the difference is instantly noticeable. Much less DNR on all of them that have been updated so far.
