  1. If there was no problem, why did they feel the need to correct it?
  2. The thing is that with PoA, maybe it does sound better corrected, but I did not immediately notice when listening the first time to the first pressing that it was in need of correction. With SL, I immediately noticed how compressed it sounds. The fix certainly sounds better, and you hear the difference when you play them side by side. The two sets do not have the same issue, so let’s not pretend they do. They are not the same at all.
  3. I just don’t get how he can be like “don’t think there were any issues” while also they corrected it for the next pressing. It’d be one thing if they’d just left it, but they actually took the time to fix it…
  4. I always enjoyed KOTCS a lot. Calling it an abomination seems extreme when it’s just a forgettable action flick at worst. I know in the world of Star Wars and Indiana Jones, everything either has to be the best thing ever made or the worst thing ever made, but I assure you it is possible to just be mediocre. That said, it is a fucking ugly movie. The color grading looks terrible in sequences like the jungle chase and highlights the CGI. Love Williams’ score though. “The Jungle Chase” is my favorite Indy action setpiece with “Ants!” not far behind
  5. I had long assumed it was written for Revenge of the Sith. Guess I was wrong.
  6. It’s difficult to describe how defects sound, but, to me, there’s this “swishy” quality to it. Almost reminds me of the sound of running water a bit. Maybe someone can describe this better… I can certainly hear it in the first pressing, and I certainly cannot hear it in the revised tracks.
  7. I don’t listen to LP’s because I can’t hear the difference. I can hear how bad Schindler’s List sounds. It’s not mental illness, and it’s insulting to suggest otherwise.
  8. I can understand the issues with PoA not getting picked up, since there really does seem to be no way to hear it. SL, though… It doesn’t sound good to me. Very audibly compressed.
  9. I mean, yes, the risk is low, but the it is nonetheless relatively higher for a nearly 90-year-old man. No need for him to fuck around with a disease that can have long lingering effects even in mild cases. We all want him to keep doing what he’s doing.
  10. I guess that’s possible, but I doubt it would be better than what we got. The Jungle Chase edit is not a good one…
  11. I’d rather have more UW than that song, but I am speaking from the perspective of the persnickety album producer that Williams is. If he put that song on the album, he wanted it there. I don’t think he’d have sacrificed it for more action material he’d surely find redundant when the original UW has a strong internal narrative of its own that stands without the rest of the material.
  12. I’m not really sure what people think the soundtrack would have been like if they waited. It was already 75+ minutes. I don’t think Williams would have put more of the Ultimate War than what was on the original album as it would have lopsided the narrative on the album to have 15-25 min of climactic action. What is on the original album is a good presentation if you don’t know what’s missing. It works well as a climax.
  13. I mean, if you’re right, then I have no problem acknowledging that. Just seems like you’ve provided no other evidence than “I was right about Palpatine, so I must be right now”.
  14. It’s not really showing off to show up after the fact and say you predicted something that happened
