    That_Bloke reacted to Jay in TRoS - the film an embarrassment, the score buried?   
    I think properly assembled expanded CD releases of the sequel trliogy scores one day will REALLY elevate all three in the eyes of many who are disappointed with them
     
    Nothing can save the movies though

    That_Bloke reacted to mrbellamy in John Williams Best Score Oscar Nomination for The Rise of Skywalker!   
    My main hope is that kids have gotten something out of all 3 of these. It’d just be a shame if they’re not treasured on that level. It’d be a nice thing for John’s legacy to say his newest music transfixed the current generation of kiddos and that about 10 years from now there will be soundtrack geeks in their 20s waxing lyrical about the first time they heard Rey’s Theme.

    He's just confusing it with the number of times he's asked Daisy out for dinner!

    For over 30 years of the 88 that you have been around, I have have been enthralled by your music. I have listened to it for countless hours. I have formed many friendships because of it, and it has impacted my life in ways that are simply undeniable. 
     
    Thank you John Williams
     
    Thank you JWFAN.

    In Dutch it means to run, or it's a word for a chicken coop.

    Well that escalated quickly. This is why we can't have nice things.

    My guess:
     
    John Williams: The Boring Years
     
    (Sleepers, Stepmom, and Rosewood, with the latter in a new and even more boring edition.)

    That_Bloke reacted to Jay in Petition to get an isolated score on the future streaming release of ROS   
    I asked Mike Matessino about the chances of this and he said that "petitioning for isolated scores would be a very good way of sabotaging potential official expansions. It would send the message the The Phantom Menace: Ultimate Edition was what the fans wanted after all, and music recorded but not used could never see the light of day. Bad idea."

    That_Bloke reacted to Nick Parker in How many times have you listened to the track The Rise of Skywalker?   
    I don't know, it sounds super Star Warsy to me, especially at moments like 2:06, and the big statement starting around 2:50ish, culminating in that chord at 3:11.
     
     
    The most romantic depiction of space I think Williams has done since Luke and Leia.

    That_Bloke got a reaction from Fabulin in The Rise of Skywalker - Disney Records OST   
    Kylo and Rey form the new order of the Summer Knights. 
     
    And apparently there's a track called "Prologue"
     
    I now also have visions of the film opening with the voice of the late Alec Guiness saying "Previously, on Star Wars..." as we spend a hour recapping the earlier movies, and THEN we get the title and crawl. Or Ian McDairmid announces, "Star Wars was filmed before a live studio audience..."
  22. Haha

    That_Bloke reacted to bruckhorn in The Rise of Skywalker - Disney Records OST   
    And I have an image pop into my head: Rey showing up and greeting Kylo with, “Tell me about it, stud.”
     
    Yep, it’s silly season at JWFan.

    I don't know for certain, just been my experience.  I could be wrong!
     
    Everyone should certainly begin checking themselves in the morning:

    https://music.apple.com/AU/artist/john-williams/63748#see-all/full-albums
     
    And if you want to try other countries besides NZ and AU, here are all the country codes iTunes uses:

    I'm not sure how to look at other country's catalogs on other digital services such as Google Play, Amazon MP3, etc.  I believe you have to use a VPN for those.

    From my experience, new digital albums don't show up on AU or NZ iTunes until midnight Sydney time, which is 8am Eastern tomorrow morning.
