I just placed an order (to Norway) a few days ago, so I'm certain. 

 

That explains why the price in Euro is considerably lower than in GBP

Mine too and I paid for First Class instead of just Media mail.

I'd love a custom cover for this that uses this layout:

This was posted by Frank Vincent at FSM in the Custom Cover Art thread last weeks. I like this one posted there by Raferjanders a couple of years ago:

Has anyone got a better scan of this alternate cover of the original Varese?:

I think the positioning of the elements is better now. But JWFan compresses the image, when I upload it.

Any more fan artworks? Come on guys, that's not it yet!

Who even received it this quickly?

I thought, at least half of the people know the OST already. 

 

I revisit it again and found, that If I needed to compare it with another Williams score, I would say, it is probably closest to The Fury. Not the main theme of course, but the handling of it in the score and the thriller elements like the dissonant strings in moments of tension etc.

 

Robert Townson wrote rightfully in the liner notes "This is a masterful score which takes a prized position in the repertoire of a composer who is likewise always searching for new forums of musical expression."

First notes I ever heard were the samples, then the podcast. After a couple more listens to the samples I started kinda liking it so I ordered it pretty much blind with SpaceCamp.

 He should visit the JWFan forum then.

I don't understand why we need Ford's giant head floating around on the cover at all. I understand that is what the original poster/marketing material is/was, but couldn't they "reinvent" the cover to something a bit more atmospheric?

 

Just a thought (and 5 minutes in MS PAINT!):

Yes, but I thought, almost everyone here knows the music or even owns the OST.

And you want people to have a big conversation about the music on the OST, in a thread for a new expansion?

When I thought, why doesn't anybody talk about the music, I was not thinking in terms of OST or expansion. I just thought, in the one way or the other people here are familiar with the music and such a thread would be a good opportunity.

Agreed.

I understood what you meant immediately.

It's like a delicious buffet of subtle sonic/orchestration touches.

 

Like the synth bass sound undergirding the timpani/double bass hits here:

None of us has heard the music yet, but everyone has seen the artwork.

Especially considering the complete release adds what, 6 minutes?

11 1/2 minutes; The OST had repeated material in it

The synth trumpets after the synth bass in the main theme remind me of blade runner somehow. Could it be an unconscious choice by williams because harrison fords haircut and look is very similar to deckard’s…?

Jay spends way to much time here. So, he wouldn't be able to finish the Indy V score on schedule.

 

Well, we don't know that he will.

Oh my god, this reminds me of the awful new Basic Instinct Blu-ray cover! That said, your artwork is of course not awful.

No shipping notice from me either here in the uk. Ordered it on the first day.  They made out they were ready to be shipped! Doesn't look that way at the minute
