This forum has  a "report post" feature and this is now the most reported post we've ever had in the entire history of this forum.   This post is a reply to one short sentence: "Seems like 2

I understand you're rightfully proud of the work your company has done, but why did you think it was necessary or appropriate to respond to his comment in such a disproportionately extreme way? 

Frankly, if a specialty label owner can’t follow the rules of the forum and basic rules of decency then I’d rather them not post if it’s all the same.  I don’t mean to be flippant but someone in that

I had a feeling Release 5, given the unit count and price announced at the top of this thread, had the biggest possibility of being something I wanted, and I was right! I actually was hoping it would have been Jurassic Park 3 (which they said they would likely do), but Tremors is a fun score and never truly had a proper release! Didn't Intrada release like a promo album once or something? I should have seen the possibility of it coming, given the attention it has been getting this year with the new film and the new Blu-Ray/4K release.

 

So I'm getting Tremors. Anybody here getting anything?

Well, I love refreshing but nothing for me in this batch. And that's okay. I've had more luck this year than most people and I still have to invest in classical music, so now's the time to do that.

 

Then I recommend following this thread.

So much for MM's claim that he wants to provide a " good listening experience" on future releases.

 

You know, I can understand organizing it that way, but it will be a bit of a pain to create a chronological experience with that. Almost like you're getting two scores.

 

But I can understand what the intent behind that ordering would be.

As I predicted LLL left off some of the best cues in the series including the fantastic teaser music from FIRST BREATH THREE OF A KIND ( not to mention the finale of FEARFUL SYMMETRY)

Yet,  we continue to get boring cues from the mostly sound design scores from season one and  the terrible last two seasons , which were not even real X-FILES.

So much for listening to fan requests.

I was referring to the plethora of short cues.

Ah I see. I can also imagine it depends on the score. Perhaps all the complaining about short cues being stitched together here was taken into account. XD

They left off the best cues- again!.

Four effing volumes and they can't get their act together😠

 

I know, but it's better than nothing I suppose. I still have some favourite cues that elude me in these sets. Although I reckon this one would have made a great concept album if it excluded the dialogue overlays.

But I also love the suite in this one:

I’ve had no problem with their cue selections, although maybe that has to do with the fact that I haven’t seen any non-reboot X-Files in 12 years.  The few tracks I remembered vividly have already appeared on earlier releases.  I look forward to picking up VOL 4 and completing the collection.  
 

looking at their LLL requests thread, it looks like they delivered on a bunch of them.  Not all of them, which is to be expected because there were tons there.  It also looks like Mark Snow is heavily involved in track selection on these releases (MV talks about “he thinks season 1 is not his best work due to tech limitations but we’ll see what we can do,” etc.). So it’s possible they brought up all the requests and he pooh-poohed certain ones.  I am glad that they are including some Fight the Future music that he previously pooh-poohed though!

As soon as I saw Tremors, I wondered whether it would include music from both composers, as Torn Music talks about some promo of Troost's music mystifying score collectors as a lot of music in the film is actually Folk's.

 

It's the only release in this batch I'd consider buying - the film's good; I just don't really remember the music.

Everyone has his or her own favourite cues of course.

While they left off some of the cues that I would definitely have included personally, they did include almost all of the most essential cues that were on my wishlist. And completely out of the blue, it contains Smoking Telegram!

It looks like a fantastic release.

 

Smoking Telegram! Yes!! I didn't want to buy the Fight the Future album simply because that cue was lost... and the mad geniuses have found it! I lost any hope once Disney bought 20CF, certainly didn't think it would turn up on another volume of the series music! 

 

So thank you, LLL... Brilliant news! Hope you can reveal where that lost music turned up?

Are you referring to Smoking Telegram? Because I thought the tape with that cue was lost, and all parties desperately wanted that finale cue on their previous release for the film.

Yea, they couldn't find it. It's not like they had it and Snow asked them to remove it.  Where'd that theory come from? 


My memory was shaky - I mistook it for one of these other cues that were composed for the film and which were left off at the request of Snow, I guess!
