You can just play the whole album on youtube

 

I believe the Spotify free version lets you play entire albums too, not sure (I've been a subscriber forever)

I just listened through the whole score for the first time. And I frequently was thinking what Shark recently said, that at Williams music there is mostly something interesting happening in the music.

It's not one of my favorite Altman films, it comes across as an elaborate acting exercise, but it's fundamentally good. It's just made more interesting by the music. The Blu-ray looks great, consideri

The film is imho very good, it has a very interesting psychological premise and it constantly makes you feel unsettled. It almost feel like a hallucinated stage drama. The music works beautifully in t

Prepare for the most unusual Williams score you've ever heard!

 

Just listened, you can definitely say that again!  ROTFLMAO

 

What's up with the moaning dude?!  Overall I liked it, I'll give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.  I'd definitely need to see the movie though to enjoy it more I'm sure.

I "tried" to watch the movie few years ago, I've stopped it because it was too weird and disjointed. Anyway, me and movies where characters have "visions"... I absolutely hate that.

 

Briefly, I would say that it's a psychological movie about a woman who have very serious mental illness problems, and well.... that's a movie from its era (1972)...

 

Meh... :(

It has to do with the previous lovers that Cathryn imagines in the film (or that are real; the line here is deliberately blurry) - a sort of primal, male sexual grunt.

It's too bad he never did a whole avant-garde, experimental score like this again

 

Out of curiosity, Williams said during an interview (sometime in the 70's if memory serves) that he was considering adapting some of this music into some sort of essay for percussion (probably a kind of suite from the score, I guess). Sadly that never came to be.

Then again, maybe I was too hasty when I took the shrinkwrap off it yesterday to listen to it.  Who knew I could have sold it for £399.46 ???

Same here. Even if I wish the sound had been remastered even better, if at all possible from the promo vinyl source, it's still Prometheus' best and most important release ever. I was so happy when I could throw my old LP-to-CD-R in the trash.

I would love a CD re-release of this. Although I have the vinyl, and it sounds excellent. But if one day a better remaster was possible, perhaps with an expansion, it would be great to explore the score further. I think it's wonderful.
