  1. Take out that completely utterly fucking stupid joystick on the bridge and that film isn't that bad.
  2. Yeah they're off the FYC, though if you play them at a loud volume you can still hear the birds. More dialed down very low than completely removed. Westenra's vocals are entirely removed on that FYC though. So basically it's like this: disc 1 1. The New World (OST version) 2. First Landing 3. Nature (Forest Textures on FYC) 4. A Flame Within 5. An Apparition in the Fields... 6. Journey Upriver 7. Of The Forest (Bird Demo on FYC) 8. Pocahontas and Smith (FYC has slightly longer oboe intro) 9. Forbidden Corn 10. A New Life (Rolfe Proposes 1 on FYC) 11. Rolfe Proposes (Rolfe Proposes 2 on FYC) disc 2 1. Winter (edit of the OST track to give it an ending) 2. The Battle (edit of both OST and FYC tracks, combining them together for an extended version) 3. All is Lost 4. A Dark Cloud is Forever Lifted 5. Listen To The Wind 6. The New World (FYC version) 7. Forbidden Corn (FYC version) 8. Rolfe Proposes (OST track) 9. All is Lost (ending taken from FYC) 10. A Dark Cloud is Forever Lifted (FYC version which cuts the opening piano intro)
  3. I am the guy who made the combined FYC / OST album. I can't believe that was 8 years ago I did that. I titled that cue "Nature" because I didn't really care for the name "Forest Textures". Same with the cue "A New Life". I don't like the names "Rolfe Proposes 1" and "Rolfe Proposes 2" so I gave the former a new title. Just made sense at the time. Adding in the bird / vocal-less versions of cues as bonus tracks off the FYC seemed like the natural thing to do. Below is the custom back cover I'd done for the back of a theoretical CD years ago.
  4. I think he's pretty spot-on. One cannot compare this to any other film series musically, especially its endurance in the public consciousness. Lord of the Rings / Hobbit for example, six films with one composer but that has not and will never resonate as much as Star Wars. Nothing really ever will, nothing has ever come close.
  5. It was never going to be anyone BUT Franglen and he’s worked with James for years. Titanic first, then from Avatar right up to the end of James’ life.
  6. You and me both...thankfully a friend is gifting me a copy. I couldn't have been able to get it otherwise.
  7. They're tagged with the titles so spoilers beware. Tracklist and times. Painfully short cues here.
  8. I'm insanely excited for this, but I just can't press the order button. I almost did but the situation I'm in is so dire, while it would be nice to spoil a little bit and get this album, I can't justify it when food and everything else is a priority for my son and I. The joys of family crises!
  9. It's obvious to me the bonus tracks after the main score presentation on disc 2 contain many cues from the OST.
  10. I love how they incorporated the original poster into the disc art. "Send in the Probe" is my most wanted addition. Love the light choral moment in the ending where Catherine says to Jackson that the probe is on the other side of the known universe, and the gate closes. Then you've got the very creepy choir of the Ra - The Sun God film version added to this release...marvelous stuff.
  11. I'm going to work to make "Cameronized" a proper term. It went over well with the inner circle of the composer.
  12. I'd pay to see a concert with the score as-written, but that just does not happen and will never happen with any Cameron film. Those films would have to be changed because the music as-written doesn't fit by and large for Titanic and Avatar. Only Aliens would survive intact without having to change the film.
  13. We've not heard a single word about an Avatar concert, and honestly like Aliens and Titanic, it would be yet another "Cameronized" experience that would frustrate anyone who knows the score and how cut up it is. That being said, if such a thing does become a reality, of course we will be obligated to talk about it.
  14. I've never warmed to Goldsmith's fanfare, and find it a little boring. Then again, I've never warmed to Goldsmith in general with some exceptions.
  15. He's A Beautiful Mind's Akiva Goldsman to me.
  16. I can't see the facebook link, so I have no idea.
  17. As I said on the fsm board we are ambitious and hopeful about a recording. It’s just too soon to say anything definitive about that aspect. Kim has gone above and beyond while keeping us in the loop even when he had to go down his own path to make this happen.
  18. Composing RoboCop, a new tribute to composer Basil Poledouris featuring film music experts Jeff Bond, Lukas Kendall, Daniel Schweiger and Robert Townson Two Isolated Score tracks (Composer’s Original Mix and Final Theatrical Mix) in lossless stereo https://www.arrowfilms.com/product-detail/robocop-limited-edition-blu-ray/FCD1918
  19. Truth hurts don't it? He's not wrong.
  20. Neil S. Bulk has revealed that the previously mentioned "Stargate" expanded album is being assembled at this very moment. https://twitter.com/nsbulk/status/1163941768787742720?s=20 Follow him for updates, but so far he's said it's going to be a 2-disc set released in a few months (possible Black Friday release?) and David Arnold said it sounds terrific. Neil also said that August 20, 1994 was the first day of recording the score.
  21. No, but it does when they tie in older films to the new releases with special editions full of extras and remastered pictures, etc.
  22. It's always been interesting how these labels can't put out an old score while a new film is coming, but the studios themselves won't hesitate to cash in with repackaged Blu-rays and DVDs of those same older films, or release special editions of the older ones to tie into the hype for the newer ones.
