  1. It will be interesting to see what Disney does with the inevitable 9 Expanded Soundtracks, because there clearly needs to be a symmetry with the cover art across all 9, but they can't be too simplistic or they'll look the same as existing releases (like all the remastered OSTs and the 3 ST OSTs). I generally think simpler is better with Star Wars, simply because the variety of artwork produced for the 9 films varies so greatly due to the changing design trends in which the films were marketed. You can't really have a release of ESB with that original artwork paired with TROS and its theatrical artwork, the difference is just too stark. Perhaps whatever they do for the 4K releases next year will hint at the expanded score artwork?
  2. Lovely post @Cerebral Cortex. BTW, your countdown to the final score is slightly out... it's only 2 days/10 hours/40 minutes away, not 2 days/11 hours/10 mins.
  3. Some lovely new interpretations of Rey's Theme in there! Very nice work to Ross if he arranged it.
  4. Less than 3 days until this is released in Australia and still no tracklist! Wow! Not that I really care, because I won't be reading it But when it drops on Apple Music at midnight it could be the first time anyone sees it.
  5. Although the shipping estimate says 'Get it Thu, Jan. 2 - Fri, Jan. 17 with FREE delivery.' Very weird...
  6. What the heck? Amazon Australia says they have the soundtrack in stock! It's no longer listed as a pre-order! Has anyone received a shipping notice?
  7. Feel free to move it into the other thread. I don't have time to check every thread to see where each discussion point has been raised and discussed.
  8. So Mike mentioned other upcoming 20CF titles that were signed before the takeover but then clarified none of them are Williams, right? I was in a rush and didn't have time to listen twice.
  9. So for Poseidon Adventure Mike used the existing scans from 2010 but remastered them using modern technology, while the other two scores had modern transfers? Presumably better elements couldn't be found for TPA, or don't even exist anymore, which is a shame.
  10. Yeah and pretty much the last of its kind. Can't think of any other major CD retailers in Australia.
  11. Lovely quotes. Judging by what JJ said, there's quite a handful of new themes? Unless he's just confusing themes with cues...? And since when did JW contribute to the liner notes? Very cool detail. Finally available for pre-order on Australian websites. Release date is the 20th here:
  12. Well you picked a great time to come back, because the forum will probably never again be as active as it is now.
  13. Phew, glad the cover art is consistent. I'm still annoyed by the change in spine design for ROTS after the first two prequels.
  14. It's a miracle Williams was able to compose a score as good as he did for such an atrocious movie. I get the feeling he ignored George's execution of the films and scored his own idea of the story being told.
  15. These interviews with Mike are one of the highlights of my year @TownerFan. Thank you so much for the hard work you put into these, not just arranging them with Mike but editing everything together. I know it's a huge amount of work but the effort shines through.
  16. What Williams really needs is two women to be nominated in the same category, so they cancel each other's votes out in the same way Williams' dual nominations cost him in 2005! Then he can skate on through and take the win for TROS! But yes, we should all save ourselves the angst and just accept JOKER will win this one for political reasons. Maybe Williams will get an honorary mention for completing the saga, like he did 4 years ago for his 50th nomination.
  17. Whatever starts around 42:00 definitely isn't Williams, but there's a lovely french horn piece starting around 1:00:00 that is almost definitely TROS/Williams music (but I have no idea if this is something from the FYC, because I'm holding strong and waiting for the movie!) And that's it! The rest is just music from TFA or TLJ. I like the sound of this TROS stuff though, it strikes me as a cute little motif for BB8 and D-O but that's just a wild guess. It reminds me a lot of Haab's music for B-D1 in Jedi Fallen Order, actually (which was reminiscent of JW's droid writing in ANH, so everyone's borrowing from everyone!) EDIT: According to @Holko this is not on the FYC, so probably something from the OST.
  18. Haven't there been like 4 Goldsmith expansions this year? Plus The Swarm on the horizon, not shabby at all. I'm not familiar with his scores but I'll get there one day.
  19. The replies are happening too fast for my poor phone! And I'm skimming half the posts for fear of spoilers.
