    I don't mean to revive an old thread, but I was just recently thinking about how well the very opening meshes with the Pankot palace material, so just for fun I cobbled together a kind of makeshift "suite" for Pankot Palace including the opening of Anything Goes.

    Quite nice! My only small critique is that I don't think the transition between the vocals and the opening works as well as the remain of the cue.

    Quality wise, what is the difference?

     

    It hugely depends on the quality of the CD-R and at some level the quality of the burning process (there's always redundant data to avoid that minor scratch will end destroying the music). I never bought an official CD-R from Amazon (but I assume there perfectly fine and goo), but I can tell you that some cheap brands made CDs that won't last much (there are very transparent) and they are very easy to damage. But in any case, if the CD-R is ok you won't hear the difference at all.

    2001: A Space Odyssey

     

    I can understand it but I much prefer the tracked soundtrack. North score sounds dated, a score from a movie in 1968 and the classical score sounds timeless.

     

    In my case, Troy is the best example of a rejected score that I prefer over the replaced one. Yared did a great job and Horner a good but predictable one. 

     

    Also, the 13th Warrior from Graeme Revell is surprisingly good... Not sure if I prefer it over Goldsmith one, but I would have keep it in the movie.

  4. For the scores is a clear win for Williams, and by far. I feel the Hobbit trilogy has weak and boring scores. I have tried to listen them many times and I always end up stoping them. They lack the excellence of the Lord of the Rings and precuels scores.

     

    The movies... For me, the better movie of the six is the Phantom Menace (unpopular, I know). It feels the better done, there have some things that I dislike but overall is an ok movie. The rest are simply bad movies. My main problem with the Hobbit trilogy is that apart from bad they are also boring. The novel is very entertaining, but making it into an almost 9 hour set of films makes the whole story slow and uninteresting. 

  5. I still consider myself as a Giacchino fan. I usually enjoy his scores. There're no perfect by, for instance, Fallen Kingdom end up growing on me and I really like his two Spider-man scores. This new Medal of Honor theme is also very good.

    Sounds okay to me, sounds a little "live" but that is it.

     

    The one part of the Melody kind of reminds me of When You Are Alone from Hook a bit.

    Yes, for me is the same. The sound reminds me a little bit of a live performance but it doesn't sound "bad". In any case I recall that the first Medal of Honor CD had a "meh" sound quality, maybe they are doing a TFA-thing with the sound quality?

  6. I was told a couple of years ago that at present almost every use of cimbalom, celeste and others are always synth since is cheaper and the sound is almost indistinguishable. So maybe in Black Sunday, Dracula and Schindler's List is real, but almost certain it would be synth in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

    For reasons that I can't figure out TAOH sounds like a Williams piece that he decided to use for Solo. But when Powell gets it and arranges it it feel like Han. It certainly feels like the Han we see in Solo.

     

    Maybe it has to do with the orchestra? There's a distinctive difference in how the Williams recording sound compared with the rest of the score.

    I dig it! I do think it's still a little choppy; part of that is going to be inevitable because of the nature of the two passages you're bringing together, but I think you might be able to smooth it over a little more.

     

    Alternatively, here are a couple more options for ya.

    Each has its downsides: v1 omits the very beginning of "The Adventures of Han" but flows pretty seamlessly, whereas v2 includes the entire thing but relies on material from another Star Wars score to bridge the gap. Imagining it as an actual end credits cue, I think I may like the first one better.

     

    Anyway, thanks for the inspiration to try these out! I hadn't bothered till now.

     

    I think I like your v1 the best!

    Not surprised by that. I’ve come across multiple albums on iTunes that list—in the Composer field—a composer whose music was referenced/used in the track, even though they themselves had nothing to do with writing the specific track. I think it’s an iTunes/digital music store common practice. The Artist field seems to be used for the guy who specifically worked on the track for the most part, while the Composer field is used to list every composer whose music was featured in the track.

     

    Take for instance “Canto Bight” from TLJ; in the Composer field we have "John Williams & Ary Barroso” because “Brazil” is quoted—even though Ary Barroso obviously had nothing to do with TLJ.

     

    You are right, I'm not surprised by the credits in a platform as iTunes but there Hybrid Soldier is talking about the difference between the credits for the Deluxe Edition and the Album in ACAP and those sites. 

  9. Probably, the majority of scores don't need expansions but decent OST Albums. In some cases we got those but in others we got a very short representation of the work of the composer. I agree that in some cases the expansion album is less enjoyable than the short one (for instance I usually like Marco Beltrami's scores and when some expansion leaks/gets published usually I prefer the regular album).

  10. So I came across this on www.hans-zimmer.com. Seems to be the cue sheet unordered but including the bits with John Wiliams material:

     

    Couple of interesting things. 

    Williams in the film cuesheet seems to have been credited only for "his" cues but never for others' cues (even if they use either old Star Wars music or new JW Solo material) :

    YACHT PARTY SOURCE (JP)

    THE HAN SOLO THEME (JW) 

     

    This is what I could find. Some of the cues I couldn't find at all like Family Stories A, Gonna Be A Pilot or To Tatooine Pt 2 probably have all one thing in common : I guess they're 100% credited to JW. 

    That cuesheet matches in fact with the credits I posted above that come from JP's team. 

     

    Interestingly, the 2018 Album does credit Williams very specifically on every cue any of his material is used (The % come from the fact Powell & Mounsey are ASCAP, Williams, Willis & Sener are BMI) : 

    ADVENTURES OF HAN (HAN SOLO THEME) 
    JW 100% 
    MEET HAN 
    JP 28% JW 72% 
    CORELLIA CHASE 
    JP 50% JW BS 50%
