  1. The only thing that would make this release better would be if they A: did a limited vinyl run and B: released a DVD-audio version.
  2. Really liked PROMETHEUS, on my second listen now. The Goldsmith quote got me emotional, but there's more of his DNA in the score than just that one track.
  3. There's an amazing three part one on Pops Britannia. But the best is 'The Return' on Keisuke Wakao plays JW.
  4. I'll try and get the new one if I can afford it, as I don't have the old one. I was scared for a second that it was coming out tomorrow.
  5. Based on a comment by MV on FSM, LLL will be releasing Jerry Goldsmith's WARNING SHOT soon.
  6. My problem is the whole design looks cheap - and the custom created logo is nigh on the same as a bootleg cover that previously made the rounds. The back cover as well just looks ugly and cheap. I agree on the yellow font, but it's better than the LLL. I had previously assumed the long "Music from the Paramount original motion picture soundtrack" was contractual as it was the same on the original LP, but I guess not.
  7. I agree, they do. But I don't think it's a pre-requisite, and it's certainly not something we should expect from a label who - for better or for worse - actively ignores the online community. We know Varese doesn't do this kind of thing, we've known for a decade or so, but we still bitch as if it's something we can actively change. I don't agree that re-releases should immediately equal more music. I think we've been conditioned by the multitude of expansions (which is certainly something Varese have previously contributed to) but there's no rule, written or unwritten, that says any new release should be expanded. I certainly understand people's frustrations, but the bottom line is either buy it or don't. Don't spend pages and pages (as that FSM thread has) grinding about something that everyone has already known for years just for the sake of it.
  8. That is, thanks. But I'd like the inlay and spine as well. Or I may just make it myself.
  9. Can someone who gets this do a high-res scan of the artwork? I absolutely loathe the LLL cover.
  10. That's because Varese don't pre-announce until the product is ready. We know Varese don't like the internet community and they don't communicate, so why is everyone up in arms? It's nice that from time to time we do get an explanation, but I don't think it should be demanded. After all, we vote with our wallets. I would readily buy an expansion, but I dofeel the LP program is fantastic and it deserves to be out there. My only gripe is that it's part of the CD club and therefore a limited edition (what is with these low unit numbers for requested scores?). Also I guess that means a faster turnaround for someone else to issue it.
  11. 2000 units? Honestly? For a John Williams score that has been famously rare and OOP that it commands Predator prices. I'm really glad the score is coming out because it's incredible, but really. Oh well. I guess I'll have to wait for the Intrada reissue.
  12. General Dodonna won the Euromillions rollover once.
  13. I sat in V 17 in the front stalls, so we were probably pretty close. I really enjoyed it, it was my first experience of film music being played live and the orchestra was really good. I noticed the girl go off but I didn't pick up that she broke a string until my wife told me - I thought she just needed the bathroom or something! The presenter was ok, but he got a few facts wrong but you're right, it was weird him just sitting there staring. The Memoirs track was Sayuri's Theme, at least according to the programme. I'm not that familiar with it myself. One thing that I thought about - during the SW suite, they played the Throne Room coda both on the main title medley and the Throne Room piece - I thought it was normally just played at the end of the Throne Room section to round the whole suite off?
  14. If you see a big guy with long hair and a Hulk T-shirt, that'll be me.
  15. I know you're prone to fits of hyperbole but all horror movies suck? Really?
  16. It's fun to the point where I stepped outside the theater and wanted to kick the shit out of people with a gigantic hammer whilst shouting 'For Asgard!' It's a real comic book film - you can't compare this to the Nolan Batman - this is just a really well-written, well-directed, well-acted rollercoaster. It's exhilarating (The HULK especially), it's funny, the tone is right - it's serious when it needs to be but knows when to cut the tension with a joke - and just fun. The dynamic between the characters is one of distrust at first, so there are teething issues to go through while they fight the bad guys. I thought the score worked really well - have to go back and listen to it on its own.
