    Are you keeping track of all our disagreements? Here's another one to add, because LEGENDS OF THE FALL is not only one of the best Horners, but one of the best scores ever written.

    If LLL's one-two expansion punch of Zorro and Sneakers hadn't decided it already, this is the final triumphant release to declare 2023 as the greatest year for James Horner releases EVER. And all of them expansions or premieres!

    Trope got a reaction from Brando in HOOK Ultimate Edition - MUSIC Discussion   
    I ordered this score based on its immense popularity. I’ve only ever listened to the Prologue, never seen the film. I’m very excited to sit down and listen to this full expansion from beginning to end. Hopefully it will arrive before Christmas!

    Great! More Horner!
     
    I've listened to the OST once or twice and the thing I remember the most about it is that one of the themes found its way into Legends of the Fall (and many others) a few years later.

    Trope got a reaction from GerateWohl in TOTAL RECALL by Jerry Goldsmith - new 2CD Complete from Quartet Records   
    I don't know where to post this (perhaps it can be moved to a more relevant thread), but I've recently discovered that John Debney's Iron Man 2 theme (I Am Iron Man) is extremely similar to Goldsmith's Total Recall theme (and Goldsmith's 90s rhythmic style in general). I'm sure this has been discussed previously, but it was my first time noticing it.

    Wow, really? No familiarity at all, just diving straight in and discovering the whole score in its definitive edition right off the bat? Damn, that's awesome. You're in for a real treat!

    Yes! Another Rey movie! Disney yet again demonstrating how it has its finger firmly on the pulse of what the moviegoing public wants!

    Trope got a reaction from Dr. Know in Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget (2023 Netflix movie, music by Harry Gregson-Williams)   
    I'm just excited that we're getting another animated score by Harry! I can't believe a composer of his calibre is writing music for projects like "Meg 2: The Trench" or "Retribution" (some cheapo Liam Neeson film I didn't know existed until yesterday).
     
    His last animated film "Early Man" (also from Aardman and co-written with Tom Howe) was one of my favourite scores from 2018, featuring a handful of solid themes, vibrant orchestrations, and a good balance between silliness and some genuinely heartwarming moments. Well worth a listen!

    I have to admit, I am not a big fan of the Julie Kirgo format of "here is an essay talking a bit about making the movie, and, oh yeah, it had a score."

    I liked when they had a track by track analysis, like Goldsmith's Star Trek TMP from 2012 or (don't kill me) the old Hook extended edition.
     
    It's much easier to follow the score and themes when each track is individually analyzed, instead of something like "the love theme goes in tracks A, B and C while track D has a different performance..."

    Which would be more important: all JW expansions available to stream and purchase by anyone, forever. Or a physical set available for a couple of years and then OOP.
     
    Surely at least some physical collectors (not the FSM 'no CD = no sale' brigade; they're beyond help) would forego their collection in return for wider availability.

    I don't even really see how it involves such a mountain of paperwork that they won't do it.
     
    All sorts of crap gets put on Spotify. Quite a few stock music companies have theire entire inventory on streaming - god knows who's listening to it. If they are able to profitably do that, the studios can sure as hell do it or allow the labels to do it.

    Hear hear. My friends don't understand it whenever I have to send them files and tell them they can't get Mike's presentations on Spotify. All these studios should just, once and for all, GET THEIR PAPERWORK IN ORDER AND WAKE UP TO REALITY.
