  1. Hey folks. This question's probably been asked a million times, but... What is the most comprehensive interview or article or series of articles or essay or (god willing) portion of a book in which Williams discusses his creation of the original SW scores and his musical influences and his themes and any backstage stories about the scoring process? I have the 1997 Special Edition albums, and their linear notes are great, but all this talk of the new SW films and who will score has me going back to the original scores again and wanting more of this sort of literature. Any helpful thoughts or suggestions? Thanks.
  2. Here's a cumulative rundown of the tracks revealed so far: DISC 1 Track 1: Main Title Track 2: SCULLY TO DC/SCULLY MEETS MULDER 1:21 (Pilot - 1X01) Track 16: FISH FOOD 3:15 (Little Green Men - 2X01) Track 20: THE RETURN 1:59 (One Breath – 2X08) DISC 2 Track 4: GRAVES 2:55 (731 - 3X09) Track 12 -- A PLACE IN HISTORY 6:04 (Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man - 4X07) DISC 3 Track 4: MOTHER GENES 3:53 (Christmas Carol - 5X05) Track 5: LITTLE BOX OF SAND 7:37 (Emily - 5X06) Track 7: QUEEN OF SWATH 8:50 (Triangle - 6X03) Track 15: PIANO ON THE TACK 1:28 (How the Ghosts Stole Christmas - 6X06) Track 20: A MOTHER'S ABDUCTION 3:02 (Two Fathers - 6X11) Track 21: TRAIN TUNE ___ (One Son - 6X12) DISC 4 Track 7: WATERSON 3:13 (All Things - 7X17) Track 13: HIDE AND SEEK 2:03 (Without - 8X02) Track 18: LONE GUNMEN REQUIEM 8:13 (Jump the Shark – 9X15) Track 19: THE TIP 2:33 (Release – 9X16)
  3. BenQ MP512ST 800 x 600 DLP Short-Throw Projector PS3 PS3 surround sound bar (debuted late last year. When my girlfriend goes to bed: Tritton AX Pro Dolby Digital Precision Gaming Headset I like having a projector, because as as someone who doesn't own a TV, and who cherishes the big screen experience, it makes watching movies an experience, like others have mentioned. And only being able to watch films on a projector means I don't watch TV which - no judgement here against anyone else - is a good thing for me. Projectors and PS3s are an ideal combination for another reason: you can take any bittorent files downloaded on your computer (TV shows, Bluray rips), put them on a USB stick and transfer them to the PS3 - and get incredible picture quality. Thinking of upgrading to the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350 some time in the next year.
  4. What's everyone's favourite track, upon initial listen? It's a hard choice, but I'll go with "Karma Has No Price," with "Coffin Calamity" a close second.
  5. I've listened to all the clips at Barnes and Noble again, and I am positive that Disc 2 (not counting the two bonus tracks) ends at the close of "The Last Recruit," meaning that whatever final release comes out, it will include coverage of not only "Across the Sea," "What They Died For," and "The End," but also "The Candidate." Here's why: Tracks 21 and 22 are trekking music during "The Last Recruit," when the group splits up. The track "Kool-Air Claire," for instance, plays when Sawyer and Kate swim fully clothed to Elizabeth and the action then cuts to Jack and Hurley sneaking away from Locke's group, without Claire. Track 23, "Sunny Outlook," is the short cue that plays during the sideways scene (also in the episode "The Last Recruit") when Sun wakes up in the hospital with Jin at her beside, and Jin tells her the baby is fine. If you listen to the clip, towards the end, the music underscoring Jin and Sun's brief dialogue exchange then segues into the theme-less sideways "Twilight Zone" sound as the camera pans to the hallway and Jack and his sideways son walking down the hallway. The clip from Track 24, "Reunion and Reneging," starts out with some suspenseful Widmore Danger Geek Squad music as Kate, Sawyer, Sun, Hurley and Claire arrive on the shore of Hydra island. Then you can totally tell from the clip that the music is building towards the beautiful rendition of the Sun and Jin theme that played during their long-overdue reunion. The Bonus tracks are from the finale, as has already been established, which leaves no music from "The Candidate". Which is GREAT NEWS, in my opinion, as it gives Varese more impetus to make the final release another two-disc CD and give "The Candidate" - which featured a lot of great music - more disc space. Think about it. "The Candidate" has the music scoring: -- the Sub Group's shootout on the sub dock -- the incredible, long sequence that spans Jack and Sawyer's tinkering with the bomb, Sayid's sacrifice, the flooding of the sub, and the death of Sun and Jin. This sequence is among the most extended of any action set piece in the show's history, and none of the tracks on the latter part of Disc 2 come anywhere close to covering its entering length. Varese would be foolish not to include it, with its heroic rendition of Giacchino's Medal of Honour sub theme and the life and death theme played over the montage of the sunken sub. -- the emotional rendition of Locke's sideways theme during his and Jack's final interaction in the hospital highway, when Locke still refuses Jack's surgery Thoughts? Sorry glennwbutler. I literally must have wrote my last post as you were writing yours.
  6. So the final track (not counting the two bonus tracks), "Reunion and Reneging," is the music playing at the end of "The Last Recruit," when Sun and Jin are reunited on the beach, right?
  7. I'm incredibly happy with what we're getting. When you put it into perspective, we are the most spoiled niche audience in the world. I mean honestly, not a lot of other shows have generated one soundtrack per season like Lost has. I'm betting it's thanks to Lost that we are now seeing other programs (like True Blood) get season-specific releases. The fact that we're even talking about a two-disc score release for the sixth season of a network television program is amazing in itself. Bask in it.
  8. Personnally, I'll wait. I've still never bought a LOST soundtrack, because I though the first two seasons soundtracks didn't have enough interesting cues to be worth it (although I love Credit Where Credit Is Due, Life & Death and some others. But it was only with season 3 that I really got interested in LOST music, and since at the end of season 3, we knew that LOST will only continue for three more seasons, I thought I'd wait a big LOST : 'Jacob Loves You' box to be released. So, I'm hoping the wait will be rewarded ! That's very...patient...of you. I don't think any of us share your force of will! So, if I'm living in Canada, do you think the CD will arrive more quickly if I preorder from Amazon as opposed to Varese's site?

Debate.
  10. Not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but the LA times has posted video clips of Giacchino rehearsing the orchestra for tonight's performance. Pure awesomeness: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/showtracker/2010/05/lost-exclusive-video-composer-michael-giacchino-rehearses-with-his-orchestra-for-lost-live.html
  11. Incanus! Thanks for figuring that cue out. On the day of the I-tunes release, I actually went track by track, listening to the track and then listening to it in the episode itself. For almost all the cues, I knew where to look, with the exeception of this one. I was so convinced it was played in the sequence with Ben under the temple wall, and when it wasn't, I gave up in anger! So thanks for confirming that. I can rest easy now.
  12. I'm fairly sure "Locke's Excellent Adventure" is from "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham", when Locke turns the donkey wheel then wakes up Tunisia and is picked up by Widmore's men. This I-tunes release couldn't have come at a better time - had the day off from work today, and was not expecting this. What a lovely surprise! As for the album itself, it's awesome. In terms of new themes, we've got Sawyer and Juliet's love theme, Miles' theme, the sub motif, Faraday and Charlotte's love theme, Jacob's theme, the destiny theme from "The Incident," a sort of Dharma theme during "Dharma delinquent" that has often been used this season during scenes involving Widmore's people. Plus some great iterations of Ben's theme (especially in "Jacob's Stabber"), lots of Locke material in the first half of the album, finally Sawyer's theme (which briefly but gloriously caps off "Dharma Delinquent") and the Ajira takeoff and landing music. In terms of new things I picked up on, while I had noticed the ascending and descending motif that follows Ben's theme in "Making Up for Lost Time" when the episode first aired, I had never noticed that that motif - which seems to play during scenes having to do with time displacement or time travelling - appears several other times in the season, most notably in the track called "Your Kharma Hit My Dharma." Also, the Man in Black theme (really just a darker, slower variation of a section of Locke's original theme) makes its first appearance in season 5, not season 6, in the episode and track "Follow the Leader." Hadn't rewatched that episode since viewing season 6, so never noticed, but very cool. All in all, a great addition the Lost soundtrack canon, though deciding to go with the digital download over the album was a hard decision, as I did still consider myself a diehard who enjoys having the physical album. I will eventually buy it, but being in Canada - and juding by the delay in getting my Fringe soundtrack from Amazon - I wouldn't have received the physical Lost album in the email until a week before the finale. But I wanted to have the album as early as possible. Only human.
  13. Good thing I didn't actually place an order, though that's disappointing. I'll see if I can order a new copy of the RCA Empire release from Amazon or something. Thanks guys.
