Holy crap guys, it's finally happening!!!1!  

Not to mention that very significant milestone anniversary in 2021........   It's so obvious now!                          

If Potter isn't announced on Friday, I'm going to buy 30 bags of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Jelly Beans, go through them each assiduously picking out just the vomit flavored beans, and mail them to La

I really hope either Tomorrow Never Dies or The World Is Not Enough is part of this batch!  So cool they were able to do Die Another Day last year!

I would be happy with that. Die Another Day actually changed my opinion of the score quite a bit. TWINE would be probably more desirable but, at the same time, I haven't got the expanded TND so it's fine with me either way.

I'd prefer TWINE as it's got actual unreleased material. Plus Snow Business in decent quality.

 

There is music recorded for TND that is not available on the OST, expansion, or iso score.

 

And I don't think any label uses the existence of bootlegs or blu ray special features to determine if they should license a title or not.  It's still the first way to get a proper, composer-approved album of the complete score.

It was even funnier to see you doing that, not knowing what Botanicus was and then discovering I didn't care about it at all.

How dare you? Botanicus is the finest composition in Williams' career. ;)

First of all, the Botanicus Theme is JW's greatest composition. Second, the sound quality was indeed a massive disappointment. It basically still sounds like a bootleg. It's an improvement over the actual bootleg track, but that isn't saying much. There's this irritating buzzing sound throughout.

 

Universal Studios hasn't even played the music when the frequently broken Botanicus robot appears with extremely limited movement to the delight of approximately none of the stinky foreign tourists for possibly decades now. It's a wonder it wasn't completely lost.

I'm a big fan of Williams music from that era. It would have been composed around the time of Always and Indiana Jones III. I remember hearing the music as a child waiting in line for the E.T. ride while Botanicus addressed us like an alien deity. I became obsessed with it when I got the silvenir videotape which actually featured some of the music. It's one of the last things from my childhood that hasn't been tainted with the passage of time.
