    What a fine ensemble @Holko!
    Those RVW/Chandos recordings are brilliant.

    How about Jerry Goldsmith - 2CD issue of INNERSPACE with OST?
    Also the non Williams Mike Matessino project ?

    It's remarkable, isn't it?
     
    Two of my grandparents didn't survive their early 70s. It's almost inconceivable that someone the same age could be writing such wildly complex, aggressive music at the same point in their lives. That we're nearly two decades beyond that point and he's still busying himself with action scores almost defies belief.
     
    Another of my legends, David Attenborough - just turned 96 and still traveling the world, giving speeches and educating people about the environment.
     
    We're so fortunate these people effectively dedicated their lives to their craft. Not only has it seemingly enriched their lives but we've become lifelong beneficiaries of their talents, through music and conservation.

    WAR OF THE WORLDS was written by a man who was, then, 73 years old! He's 90, now, and he shows no signs of stopping.
    Think on that the next time anyone wants you to listen to some shit by people who are 40 years younger than him.

    What everyone else said.
     
    A.I. is a masterpiece, filled with some of the best themes JW has ever written. Probably his best score since Close Encounters. Rich with ideas, equal parts lyrical and atonal, endlessly rewarding for listeners on repeat listens, with an emotionally satisfying climax that rounds the whole package out.
     
    That expansion remains in my top 3 MM releases of all time, even after 7 years.
     
    War of the Worlds is uniquely dark and aggressive, which you have to be in the right mood to enjoy. But once unlocked it's an incredibly rewarding score; one of those expansions you don't realise you needed until listening to it, then you wonder how you ever lived without it.

    Get both, but A.I. is more accessible, so get that first.  It really is a masterpiece.  
    War of the Worlds is very dark, but also rewarding with every listen.

    It means absolutely nothing. Jim, who designed it, was looking for images that were iconic and that were in flight.

    Amer got a reaction from JTW in Michael Kamen & Henry Mancini - LIFEFORCE (1985) - NEW! 2022 Intrada albums   
    LIFEFORCE is terrific. Although I prefer the rerecording. This is Mancini in his full orchestral charge mode. Highly recommended. 
     
    The fact that Kamens music contributed in the realization of its own album is a testament that its going to be a worthwhile purchase. This could easily have been a 3CD Set but I guess Kamens estate must have had a say in to get this into a separate release.

    Someone raised a good question on Discord: Wouldn't LLL need authorisation from Disney/LFL to use Star Wars iconography, especially on official marketing?
     
    The labels are incredibly diligent when it comes to permissions...

    They definitely seemed like the same performances across every track on both presentations (if mixed differently). The issue is that the OST master was certainly better preserved than what they had found for the film mixes, as the latter is a bit more muted and lacking some of the definition of the former.
     
    It does make me wonder a bit if this whole re-release is mainly about the Kamen stuff, since I think they did use the original masters (or close to it) for the full Mancini score. I'd have to check again.
     
    Edit: Oh wow, BSX actually took their release page down!
    https://buysoundtrax.myshopify.com/products/lifeforce-original-soundtrack-by-henry-mancini-and-michael-kamen
     
    And since there isn't an archived version of the page I can find, I can't check if there was information about the masters they used (though I don't really recall there being anything on it that wasn't on the booklet).

    That’s a very good point. However, given that it’s the maestro’s ninetieth year, I really do think they’re being conscientious of their release schedule and waiting to go all out for the holidays.
