  1. I apologize for the lapse in rules/judgement. Please let the thread discussion continue as it existed pre-meme.
  2. I think Lincoln is my favorite of the last decade in addition to being what I would consider to be one of his best scores in general. It feels very much like a work that is the product of someone who has spent their life dedicated to and understanding the nature of music with decades upon decades of knowledge being drawn upon. Not a note out of place. It's a surprisingly tough call though. On another day, I might choose War Horse or his ST scores. So much great stuff to choose from.
  3. In addition to the reasons mentioned, I want to see a full release of TROS because of what it stands for in relation to Williams and its placement within his career. It's quite possible he'll do other film scores. Who is to say? But as far as a huge blockbuster score that sees Williams giving it his all in the only way he can, this truly could be the last time we get to hear that. If the film is truly to be his 9th symphony, I want to be able to listen in full to the work as it stands at the end of his career so as to be able to appreciate his journey as an artist from beginning to end that mu
  4. Bold of you to assume you'll be able to actually hear it while watching the film.
  5. Like Ludwig said, there is a decided freshness to this film's score and how Williams is able to create so many new inspired renditions of a 36-year old theme that I thought was more than played out speaks to that quality. So much of what was old feels new again. One thing that I really like is how much it gets peppered in throughout the score in service of his (supposedly) looming presence throughout the film, especially when the character himself isn't really in the actual film all that much. On a random note, the statement from Fanfare and Prologue (and ROTJ) with those screechy
  6. In the interest of providing some tracks outside the usual, Two Steps, while not film music composers, make a habit of usually having one pirate pun track per album and they're all usually bangers. You also have McCreary's theme to Black Sails. And since you mentioned Cutthroat Island, Debney recently brought back his pirate sensibilities for the latest SpongeBob movie to fun effect: And then I'll end by throwing in a little David Wise for good measure.
  7. In continuing off desires on how to have done the end credits for TROS differently, it kills me that Williams didn't cease the opportunity to give us a Rey's Theme 2.0 of sorts to tie up the entirety of her theme in a nice bow as well as to comment on how much she as a character has changed. The theme itself gets such a workout throughout the film, what with all the numerous new variations and exciting new areas the theme is taken, that it is a big headscratcher on my end that what we get instead for the end credits is more or less what we got in the TFA end credits. I heard the first few bars
  8. A very happy birthday to @Disco Stu and a belated happy birthday to the J-Man. Hope you both are doing well.
  9. 0:40-0:42 is if Williams was asked to score Breath of the Wild.
  10. It sounds like a computer trying to do the closest approximation to new Williams music. On a technical level, it always sounds pretty damn close, but I never get any sort of emotional weight to it. The heart is missing.
  11. Hope you had a great birthday, @Not Mr. Big.
  12. I'd have to imagine (or at least hope) that, with Williams having been made aware of things like your catalog and the online interest and discussion of his music, it has to feel quite gratifying in a way, no? Like, there have to have been multiple occasions where Williams put so much effort in a scene only to walk away after a film's horrible sound mix is locked thinking "nobody is going to even pick up on that musical idea" or "that motif will go unrealized for the most part in this film by people." So to then be confronted with things like your catalog, for instance, as living proof that a l
  13. Very happy birthday wishes coming your way, @Dixon Hill & @Incanus. Hope you both have/had great days.
