  1. Thanks
    Trope got a reaction from QuartalHarmony in Did you get the Dial of Destiny soundtrack on the CD format before it sold out?   
    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a CD release so poorly handled. Thank goodness I’m not looking to buy this one.
     
    It sure makes for an entertaining thread though! I’ve ridden the highs of joy and excitement and the lows of hopelessness and despair with so many JW fans. My heart has been warmed by the comradery on display. My heart trembles for those still yet to order or have their order confirmed.

    I agree, the shipping prices put me off ordering until I can grab at least 2-3 CDs at a time. I’ve been lucky this year that there haven’t been many new releases that are really desirable for me, so I’ve only made 2 purchases from the speciality labels.
     
    Also living in Australia, not only are the shipping prices insane, but it often takes 4-5 weeks for items to arrive from the US! It’s actually kind of crazy when you consider that it only takes about 24 hours to fly from one side of the world to the other. If we consider that it likely takes a few days to sort and move the parcel about in either country before and after the flight, wouldn’t it be realistic for a parcel to arrive within about a week? I just can’t fathom why it takes such a long amount of time. Then again, I don’t work for the postal service.

    Waiting for a month typically provides ample time for the "frequencies" guys and the "there are no teeth" guys to uncover all the issues.
     
    I dislike managing replacement discs.

    I didn't wait long enough for my latest Varèse purchase, but that's because of the "bundle" promotion. When you offer me a $2 discount, I forget who I am.

    I totally disagree with this. I think the piano chords sound absolutely rubbish. Totally doesn't fit the scene.

    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!

    Mine arrived.
     
    To think I have a 1/5000 completely expanded JW and Spielberg score that otherwise seemed out of my grasp for the past few years....due to missing the boxset....to think maybe people would ask...
     
    "Hey what you go there? That looks like a fun piece of mail!"
     
    I'd tell them that it's graced by MM and cover art by Titus.  I'd say I even get reputation points by one of the guys that's also involved in it being produced, Jay.
     
    They'd say Jurassic Park 2? Fun movie but I didn't know they had songs from it?
     
    I'd laugh as to not intimidate them with my knowledge of scores, which is still novice compared to some on this forum.
     
    Maybe after all these conversations we could have with people who see our mail we could get these released and in print year round due to a new influx of film score fans...
     
    Would they still buy CDs?
     
    No... probably not.
