  1. I love the Bon Scott albums. They made one classic with Brian Johnson and have just been rehashing since with every album more pointless than the last.
  2. It was a movie I watched at least 10 times as a teenager
  3. The composer and pianist Timo Andres today released his piano transcription of Stravinsky's Symphonies of Wind Instruments, one of my favorite Stravinsky pieces. He also wrote a nice little blog entry about the piece here: https://www.andres.com/2020/10/28/symphonies-of-centenarians/
  4. I agree here @Sweeping Strings. You really should give In Rainbows a shot. You might find a lot to like!
  5. People forget about the concert works for these things! 2003 wouldn't be in consideration at all if you only thought of film scores but it did include two great concert works: the Horn Concerto and Soundings
  6. This wouldn't be my pick but I'm putting in a word for 1996 as a personal favorite: Trumpet Concerto Summon the Heroes Sleepers
  7. EAC is not available for Mac as far as I'm aware. I use XLD and haven't had any issues.
  8. Guess I'm not most people. I hate reading in dark mode.
  9. In the realm of small completely insignificant gripes, I'm not a big fan of the avatars being smaller than pre-update. Of course if that's what it takes to display properly, it's worth it.
  10. I die on the hill of light mode being far preferable to dark in all contexts (websites, phone apps, etc.)
  11. Yes, it's really not surprising at all when these pop music iconoclasts don't care for John Williams
  12. I would rank both Kid A and In Rainbows above those two! Hail to the Thief is very underrated as well. But I have to admit they haven't been a Great Band since In Rainbows.
  13. I just hope avatars being circular is a temporary thing as the mods tinker under the hood.
  14. Happy 97th Birthday to Ned Rorem! I've always been most partial to his chamber works of the 1980s and 1990s. Bright Music for flute, piano, two violins, and cello is so imaginative and ravishing. I love it!!
  15. I've always preferred his drama scores anyway
  16. Didn't we do a more "official" forum wide poll on James Horner not long after his death? EDIT: This is what I was thinking of. Guess it's not any more official than anything
  17. My understanding is that the only truly effective substance to be used in whitening teeth is some form of peroxide. If the product you are using does not have that then any whitening effects it has are not especially more productive than just normal diligent dental care (brushing twice a day, rinsing with fluoride wash, etc.)
  18. Overall these samples are not very exciting. But I'll give it a listen or two, and I'm sure there will be 2 or 3 keeper cues.
  19. Tracklist and samples are up on NZ iTunes https://music.apple.com/nz/album/the-witches-original-motion-picture-soundtrack/1536667455
  20. I love the Coplandesque section at 1:09 - 2:14.
