  1. Listening to Inferno first, one of my top 5 favorite scores ever, possibly my favorite score ever. Sounds stunning. And someone has kindly already uploaded the track titles on iTunes, it recognized my CD.
  2. I'll do my best, but I can't guarantee amazing results. Also, there are obviously three individual CD sets, so I can't take photos of every side and angle of every one. That said: Sorry the pics are kind of terrible, I'm not too great at it, and I'm more focused on the music, but the set looks amazing, beautiful design work.
  3. Mine arrived today. Interestingly, there was an extra loose rear insert for Earthquake in the box. Looks like the original rear insert, sealed in the box with the set, mistakenly has the same catalog number as Inferno, 1517. The new one fixes it, and has 1518. However it was loose inside the box, so it's all bent up. I'll stick with the original, though I guess for contractual reasons they had to do up a revised one. Anyway, cannot WAIT to dive into this set over the weekend!!!!!! The packaging is stunningly gorgeous in every way! If anyone has any questions about it, since I have it in hand, feel free to ask.
  4. Just finished listening to my copy, which arrived today. It's a revelation, the sound is spectacular. I've been waiting almost twenty years for this and it does not disappoint one bit.
  5. Thanks! I'll have to check out that scene. I found a rip of the DVD rear channel audio ages ago, but never the sessions or the cue list. Is the cue list up here?
  6. Wow, that clip is bizarre, it seems to be from a PAL source, it's sped up. I saw the film 6 or 8 times in theaters and have watched it a bunch of times since, so the difference hit me in about a second. Great cue though. The whole score is one of Williams's most vibrant of the 2000s, so varied and so aware of the needs of the film.
  7. Yep, that was the one I was thinking about. Which music-less scene do you think that cue was intended for? Since the film probably wasn't recut all that much, it should match up, right?
  8. Ah, true, deleted scenes from his earliest films have popped up, but nothing from his films from Hook forward, as far as I know, except for 2 brief deleted scenes from The Lost World, I think, which got reinstated for network broadcast and are included on the DVD. Hmm, I could have sworn at least one track on the WotW album was from a deleted scene, but it's been ages since I looked.
  9. This release looks spectacular. I've been waiting for it for nearly 20 years I spent hours and hours and hours assembling a quasi-chronological version back in the day. And I spent even longer tracking down the exact film versions of all the source music (classical and pop music). I could be wrong, but it looks like everything is there. Is anything missing? Spielberg seems to be unusually reticent with deleted material though. Aside from CE3K and Hook, are there any other films where he has allowed deleted material out? Empire of the Sun had massive amounts of deleted material, as did Schindler's List, none of which has been seen. And almost all his recent films have had deleted material that he has spoken about not wanting to make public. Obviously most of that material was cut before Williams scored the films. Minority Report was fairly unusual, in that the scene was cut at the absolute last minute. Actually, come to think of it though, I think the War of the Worlds commercial album had a cue that was from a deleted scene, similarly cut at the last minute.
  10. I'm glad to see we're getting the full cue "Anderton in Halo," which includes the score for the deleted scene with Anderton imagining his son at 9 years old. Spielberg has gotten very mysterious about deleted scenes, he never shares them anymore on his DVDs/Blu-Rays, so I wouldn't have been surprised to see this music held back, grateful to see it's included.
  11. Obviously this thread is 71 pages, so I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but while listening to it just now, I noticed something fun: On Disc 1, track 12, "The Journey to Hogwarts", there's a brief quote of a theme from Home Alone 2. Starting at 1:04 there's a very Christmas-y section of the cue, and it concludes at 1:24 with the last 7 notes of the melody from "Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas" from Home Alone 2. Took me a couple of listens to remember why it was so familiar. Fun little Easter Egg there.
  12. Is the album version of "Schindler's Workforce" more richly orchestrated because it was only ever intended as an album version, where it wouldn't have to compete with dialogue and sound effects? Or were the takes that are combined into the album version truly early attempts at the actual film cues?
  13. On that note, I've always wondered if the album suite "Jewish Town (Krakow Ghetto - Winter '41)" was perhaps intended to actually be used in the film in that early portion, perhaps in scenes that were cut, but then it was realized that there should be almost no music that early in the film.
