    You guys are hilarious. I didn't see this thread and just came back from the weekend to find all the profile pictures and it really cracked me up. Here's mine... this was like having a JWFan school project!

    Hello dear gentle reader,
    You probably noticed that pages 4,5 & 6 of this very thread (and as of writing of this post page 85 of Powell's Solo score) the pages beginning from 85 contain some creative Artworks and a lot of posts that probably left you in confusion. That is bacause some posts only worked with the correct Profile Picture. Some of us did more than one Custom Cover and therefore changed said picture mulitple times, meaning the original joke is lost. But do not fear. It's not lost forever. I went hunting, entering the vaults, found the lost elements and first generation tapes made a few screenshots along the ride for preservation.

    Thanks @Chewy! I was able to get a 1425px version of the Jurassic Park reissue cover using this guide, don't think we had it previously. It's certainly got less JPG compression than the "high res artwork" link on the LLL page:

    Long time reader, first time poster. Bought the Lost World expansion today. Never was a huge fan of the score until maybe 3 or 4 years ago, I gave it another try and truthfully I think it passes JP overall, so I can’t wait to grab this. Was motivated by all of the wonderful cover art concepts and just had to add my own one slight improvement.

    I think a lot of people here (myself included) would have happier lives if these films had gotten an isolated score.
     
    I know that's not the perfect solution, but realistically, music editor/'sound guys' fiddling is almost never going to make it onto an official release as long as producers want to remain faithful to what the composer wanted.
     
    I get a sense that some sort of 'user feedback' was involved in featuring Ripples, for a release where MM was looking for things to include.

    Definitely excited to pick this up! I missed the 4CD Collection back in the day and I've listened the heck out of the 2022 Jurassic Park re-issue.

    My favourite Balfe by far is The LEGO Batman Movie. I think there's some genuinely solid writing in that score, and it's also a great mix of serious and lighthearted. I would rank it as an A-level animation score.

    It’s not a cheap set. It’s €49.95 at Music Box Records.
    $35.99 at Intrada, that’s without shipping + customs. 

    Collecting soundtrack CDs has become a pricey hobby.

    La-La Land Records, Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, Universal Music Group and Geffen Records present THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK, a limited 2-CD re-issue presentation of maestro John Williams’ (JAWS, E.T., JURASSIC PARK) original motion picture score to the 1997 blockbuster THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK, the first sequel in the legendary JURASSIC PARK franchise, starring Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore and Pete Postlethwaite and directed by Steven Spielberg. Maestro Williams’ sensational and powerful orchestral score thrills and awes, ranking as one of the composer’s most celebrated and unique works.

    M:I 6 is actually the only Balfe score I have (partially). It's not that I don't like him; he just hasn't particularly been on my radar of composers. I've heard bits of His Dark Materials which is sort of ok - meandered a bit too much for my liking.
     
    I know that Balfe's music is academically not as refined as Williams (or whomever) but I like to think that we can appreciate both sides of the scoring coin. One minute you might want to listen in awe at some Williams set piece, and another minute something simpler, more power-anthemy might be your thing in that moment. I'm sure there will come a point this week where I pop on MI:7 in the background and Balfe's rhythms and textures are just the thing I want.

    I am of the opinion that neither Mission: Impossible scores are Balfe's best work. I enjoy them a lot, but Balfe has scores that are much much better.
     
    My favorites of his are Black Widow, His Dark Materials (the Anthology albums), Lego Batman, Home & Tetris

    Trope reacted to Tallguy in Is the Raiders March your favorite theme John Williams has ever written?   
    It tells you all you need to know about JTW is that he wrote the Raiders March and it is NOT my favorite Williams theme. That would have been any other composer's crowning achievement. Williams says "I have others."
