  1. Do I understand correctly there are again two different versions of the score going to be released?
    One seems to be a single CD version. Not sure though.

    Yes...selecting the first 30 seconds of each track does not really give a representative overview!

    It's so lazy, isn't it? Is it THAT difficult to put in a little effort and gives us maybe the best 30 seconds of each cue? Ugh!

  5. If there are expanded versions of tracks exclusively on the Special Edition it means that there are non-expanded versions going to be released on some not so exclusive album.

    Eriks facepalm was for WaterTower, not for me, right?

    It's taken a year and I can most assuredly say that it wasn't worth the wait. Oh, you weren't waiting. Anyway, by no public demand whatsoever (as Andrew Neil would say), here's my review of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey:

    I can only assume it took you this long because you played the album from start to end?
  10. If you like this score or not (And all I learned from your review is, that you don't) is entirely up to you. But I tell you there is not a second of music in this score without quality.
    There is no law that requires you to like the music of Bela Bartok. But to say his music is without quality would be presamtuous.
    I mean, look at all the RC junk that is floating around and compare this to the symphonic finesse of this score. Do you really want to tell me there are only moments of real quality in this score? Is easy listening all we have come to look for in film music these days?

    There's a difference between easy listening and interesting listening.

    First question - yes.

    Second question - no. I look for quality. wink

    "Quality" is utterly subjective.

    All I can say to people negatively critiquing this score is, don't dare let me catch you praising Williams' concert work, or you better have a pretty darn good explanation. wink
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Williams concert work is very challenging. I can't say I get much enjoyment from a good majority of his concertos or symphonies but his obeo piece is very nice. I really like Five Sacred Trees. Horn Concerto is VERY good. There are a few others I like as well.

    His shorter, ceremonial pieces are bloody brilliant!

    Yes, I need to seek out and compile all his ceremonial pieces sometime.

    No...I didn't know he even had any. I don't muchly like serious music, unless of course it is full of leitmotif, then it will make my brain light up trying to figure it out... smile

  11. A few years ago they said in some TV documentation that Morricone was one of the leading composers of contemporary sacral music. I could never verify that.
