  1. Ey, it's not (wait for it) our fault you live in a place with suspect and potentially life-threatening geology.
  2. I guess you could consider LotR a "perfect storm" of sorts. Incredibly strong source material, a director and crew dedicated (and permitted!) to incredible detail in bringing the story and, more importantly, world to life, a talented composer with a broad-but-as-of-then-not-yet-unleashed spectrum at his disposal...I can't think of other films where the combination of time, planning, execution, re-considering etc. reached such a perfect mix. One could argue that Don Davis' Matrix trilogy was on a similar level of musical craftsmanship, but it didn't have the luxury of a completed (a
  3. Who might've accepted on Boseman's behalf?
  4. Good, because it's empty. The instrumental version of "Jisas yu holy (...)"? I was vexed, YES vexed, to no end, that this particular version wasn't (couldn't?) be included as part of the alternates. May I ask whether you have that file in hi-res? My YT rip suffices on laptop/headphones, but not on the stereo.
  5. So...after the announcement, no one who got the LLL set posted any experience here in the subsequent two years? Some film music fans y'all are.
  6. Hang on, ID4 is coming? *anticipatory vibrating intensifi...wait, there's an emoticon for that *
  7. No poll of 1982 can be considered complete without this minor masterpiece, Michel Magne's Les Misérables:
  8. The only collecting bug I never understood is the posting of order numbers. I'm inclined to agree with your second assessment, and I'm probably guilty of it myself inasfar that for me, the tedious process is corralling my thoughts about any piece of music in as straight-forward and succinct language as possible. Which is sometimes hindered by my not being musically educated, or being cognizant of pertinent pieces of information on the film, the scoring process etc. I react to music on a visceral level, and to put that into words is often a time-consuming and frustrating affair.
  9. So everyone got excited about this release some six years ago, but then...had no further thoughts on it? I do...it's a fine score. The Silver Age is not my main area of interest, and I know too little about the other Bernstein's oeuvre and standing (other than he has it) to put the music into context. It reminds me a lot of North's sparse "internal scoring", only less, heh, sparse, and I'll grant Doug Fake that the finale is a most powerful piece of film scoring. Sound is generally fine, as I never had too many problems with mono releases if that is all that there is to
  10. JW: "Pay close attention, this is how a consummate professional does it... You might learn a thing or two."
  11. Find the inspiration in this cue:
  12. Nice melody. Typically pathos-laden self-important lyrics. And for some reason, you can sing the lyrics of the German anthem over this melody. Also: Fuck the SBZ. Agreed on the Russian anthem:
  13. When I first heard the following tracks 19 'rooeffin' years after seeing the movie and lamenting the old Varese OST...I was bawling with joy and bouncing up and down in my seat!!! Gwendys Attack: THAT BIT FROM 1:21 ONWARDS AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! This is Fun!: Fire in the Hole: Ahem...yeah, this one's great!
  14. Kösz, Holko! I'm weird that way...I care about having this track/edit/mix retained as it was on a previous release, but not about that one. I guess I actually should dig out the single of "My Heart Will Go On", because it has the nicer radio edit with choir backing Celine Dion. Yesterday, I spent 3/4 of an hour assembling a Small Soldiers playlist based on the DE and a 2002 footwarmer. I was left with five short tracks from that footwarmer and two edits/alternate mixes (with REALLY minuscule differences, but they are like this on the OST and I've been listening to them
  15. I finally received the LLL. And because I never can get this straight myself, even after repeatedly perusing Jason's sheetspreads: keep the OST for the (dialogue-free) song, and Back to Titanic for the LSO recordings (and a few inspired by-pieces), right?
  16. I've had the 40-minute promo for years, and it' bores me to death even before the first track is over. I'm also holding a grudge against it and Yared for winning the BAFTA over Shore's RotK that year. Heck, I should've simply walked over to the Odeon that night, taken the award from Minghella's hands and given it to Shore.
  17. An obvious contender, I guess... Not-so-obvious...
