  1. Thanks, Marc! But I think I still need some more info on certain combined tracks. So if there's anyone with more information on The Empire Strikes Back 2LP...?
  2. That's exactly what I mean. Nevertheless I also have to agree with Stephancos that JW sometimes repeats his themes too often on some albums. @Roald: thanks, glad you like 'em!
  3. JW was forced by the studio to release a single LP instead of a 2LP (no doubt for commercial reasons), so he had to comprise over two hours of material. I think he did a good job on it, a lot better than on the single LP release of Empire.

  4. Ever played his 'Dracula'-score chrono? It becomes rather boring with the same leitmotiv repeated track after track.

Occasionally he tends to put too much of the best tracks right at the beginning of an album from which the development of themes indeed sometimes suffers (like on WOTW and the second Harry Potter). And other albums repeat the main themes too often (like Schindler's List and Jurassic Park), but most of his albums r
  5. You probably think I’m crazy, but in general I like to listen to soundtrack-albums the way the composer intended it to be, so in a sequence that usually differs from that in the movie. A lot of soundtracks lose contrast and coherence when played in chronological order, and I think John Williams is a master in sequencing. Tom Null and Robert Townson have also frequently done good jobs. A while ago I busied myself to turn the Special Edtion 2CD's of the Star Wars trilogy into a format that matches the cd's of Episodes I, II and III. That is, a 74-minute non-chronological order, as close to the o

  7. Zeker! Met jou? Leuk dat er vrij veel Nederlandse Williams-fans op dit forum zitten.
