Looking to buy WAR OF THE WORLDS (Williams) FYC

Recommended Posts

I hate to say this, but...if people listen to the FYCs CDs, then they really are listening to a selection of music, and not a score.

I'll explain.

The "score" is meant to be listened to in context (ie with the visuals). That's how people can judge whether it is effective (whether it fits the film, or not). listening to an Academy promo, doesen't do anyone any good, as a) the music is often not in chronological order (you wouldn't read a novel out of sequence, would you?) and b) taken away from the images that it is meant to compliment.

The FYC actually does sound a bit better than the OST, but I mainly prefer it to the LLL version because it doesn't contain as much music and arranges the cues in a bizarre order that makes for a better listening experience. If I listen to the LLL set, I fall asleep somewhere in between Cybertronics and Monica's Plan.
