  2. Elfman on the Elf-Box:

    [qoute]There’s not a single thing I’ve collected over my entire lifetime that I haven’t saved — things that I shouldn’t, artifacts, things that I’ve come across — but I’ve never, ever saved a piece of music. Everything got thrown into trash bags and boxes and only because I think various assistants or housekeepers were afraid to throw it away — because I never gave any instructions about anything — it got dumped into storage rooms. I think I have seven storage rooms, none of which I’ve ever gone into. They just sifted through box after box.



    Am I reading this right, or did he jsut say he keeps worthless shit that means nothing, yet told people to trash tapes of his music?

    Why oh why is this being made. I loved the first film but prayed they WOULDN'T make a sequel... they did and it sucked.

    I actually like the second one better than the first one.

    What a horrible idea, both films sucked cheesy ass for me wink But a third Elfman score, especially in his later mode, is more than welcome as far as i am concerned!
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    It gives Elfman the chance to complete a trilogy for the first time in his life, though. That's something, I guess.

    So La-La-Land has announced Batman Returns (2-cd). Hopefully it wont disappoint me as much as Batman did...

    Well, if by disappointment you mean the sound quality, there is no need to worry here. La La Land used first generation digital masters to create the new album. Apparently it sounds brilliant!

    Meh....



    Sorry, I just had to utter my third indifferent reaction to today's announcements.
    I am extremely serious.
  3. One of the things I like about the new release is that there are some proper track titles, with more than just "Part 1" and "Part 2" labels.

    I'm always troubled by tracks with no track titles.

    Me too.
    Weird, isn't it?
    Even though 75% of the scores I own I haven't seen the film of it is supposed to accompany (so titular references shouldn't make the slightest bit of difference), I still find I listen to/enjoy soundtracks without track titles (or generic ones) far less.

    Apparently my need for reference is even greater than I thought.

  4. Exactly. As you say, weird isn't it?!

    Personally, I ADORE track titles that move away from the plot of the film into more abstract things - and especially when there are pure MUSICOLOGICAL terms, which Goldenthal often does. The further you remove everything away from the film itself (except the integrity of the actual compositions), the better. Heck, I wouldn't mind if they used cover art that had nothing to do with the film and renamed it "A musical odyssey" or whatever.

    I do hope Ramesh is taking notes for incorporation in the Thoripedia, a work that shall in future find its rightful place alongside such other luminary refefence works like De Vermis Mysteriis.

    Yup, excellent album!

    Love the end titles suite, in particular, which comes on way too late in the film (after the awful Avil Lavigne song). The choral bits are simply to die for, as well as the Philipp Glass ostinati.

    About a year ago or so, I discovered a youtube clip from the 2008 short film PROUD IZA, which features Danny Elfman as the narrating cat(!) and excerpts from his Seranada Schizophrana and S.O.P. as underscore. Now the whole film is out in HQ on Vimeo. It's a great, little indie flick. So enjoy!:

    Thanks to moongirl84 from MFADP for the heads-up.
