It's already up.  

The presentation might look weird at first glance, but its brilliant to listen to.   It's a similar situation to ET, where the complete score is too long to fit on one disc, and the shortest

Something odd on disc 2. Track 22 is "The Conversation" and track 23 is "Inside". That's a little fast, I think. Shouldn't there be something like a "Kiss" between?

Indeed!

 

It's a dream come true to have both available in definitive editions that completely void the 90s incomplete and wrong-take, overlays-and-inserts-missing expansions.

Ah yes, classic "That's cool, what's next?" syndrome.  Only took 20 minutes this time!

I know, I know, I'm annoyed by it myself. It's technically even very illogical that one release raises the probability of aanother release. When there are two releases announced one after another I'm completely freaking out, that's it.

 

Well, let's focus on what we've just got. I mean, it's fantastic what we've got!

Oh double wow! 

 

I dont onw either OST. I've been holding out for these reissues. 

Same here.

 

Honestly I'm not that familiar with ET or CEOT3K, so I was just going through some of the highlights to familiarize myself with the feelings of both. I'm sure everyone here already noticed this years ago, but I recognized what sounds almost exactly like the 'Sith motif' from ROTS; it plays a few times at the very beginning. An instant anchor to hook me into the score.

 

EDIT: Just realized this was the CE3K thread! :lol:

So, my instincts about CE3K were right after all, Jay. :)

 

Now, I must admit E.T. caught me completly by surprise, given that the OST would already see a release with the 4K Blu-ray.

 

I hope I'm not dreaming about all this...

It'll be interesting to see how they solve the "inside the mothership" dilemma.

 

I'm not very familiar with the Close Encounters score... I've been waiting for a release like this one to get into it  :)  So, what's the story with Inside the Mothership?

My preferred soda is caffeine free Coke Zero, which is really hard to find sometimes since I don't live in Utah.

 

If Caffeine Free Diet Mt. Dew existed anywhere in my area, I'd sell my house and live in that store.

What was wrong with this one again:

A brilliant album which has served me well for years. All the music I want is on there.

 

It is a brilliant album, and certainly generous for its time, but it was constrained by the limits of running times on just one CD; there were film versions, sweeteners, and a few whole cues that were not included

Since there are different cuts of the movie, with and without scenes inside the mothership, there also exists alternate musical versions.

There's nothing "wrong" with it and no one is taking it away from you.  It's simply not complete (just watch the film, there is music in it that has never been put on CD), and this one is.  Plus, who knows how many interesting early compositions were recorded that got replaced by revisions that no one has heard for 40 years?  On top of that, it will sound better than ever before.

Close Encounters is actually a better movie than Star Wars.

 

I'll take the movie with suspense and wonder and leaving annoying women for an alien spaceship over the the movie with Harrison Ford arguing with Carrie Fisher in a dumpster with a guy in a gorilla suit making weird noises in the background.
