    Seriously, dood. BACK TO THE MUTHA F__KING FUTURE, MAN! Cream de la cream.

    Now that we are getting this release from Intrada, we'll see if you're actually right! wink

    Hopefully, Back To The Future will be on TV over the Christmas holiday so that I can watch it to see how the music is spotted. (I've never actually watched the film all the way through.)

    The reason I caved in even though I have (and don't like) the bootleg is simply that someone told me that it doesn't do the music justice, because it's from elements that aren't properly mixed together. Nothing from my recent viewing of the film suggested I need anything from this score apart from the main theme (a masterpiece of spotting! - good one) but as I said, I just want to see what the fuss is about and really, really hope I like it.

    I'm thinking that I'm going to enjoy the darker version of the score to the one that was actually used in the final version of the film. We'll see.

    Not to sound like a Thor, but you surely know why. I like the performances of the theme I have. It feels like that's enough for me. I'd never listen to the complete score. wink


    Yet, lifeless, heartless, emotionless Desplat scores get you all wet. wink


    Well, obviously not the mixing. :ba-boom-tish: wink

    You don't think so? If Back To The Future was released today it would been scored with wall to wall music. Both Zemeckis and Silvestri knew when to make a musical statement and Silvestri's saved his first notes of the score (minus the 20 seconds of the classic main title twinkling) for the reveal of the Delorian at Twin Pines Mall; almost 20 minutes into the picture. 50 minutes of perfectly timed music (a good portion of it saved for the last act) for a 2 hour film... yeah, brilliant spotting indeed.

    I don't disagree that it's better than it would be today, but from the 60s-80s (when film scores were generally treated with more intelligence) that was pretty standard.

    What distinguishes it from the hundreds of other scores of similar length written in the 60s-80s which don't introduce the main theme too early then? What makes this one non-standard? confused

    I'm very late to the game. Can someone clarify if this is the first release of the score? I only see a song album and a Varese re-recording of it. Intrada says '1st Complete recording' so that leaves me wondering if there's another recording of it out there.

    The Varese re-recording wasn't very long and the song album contained very little score, so this is the first official release of it.

    Ah thanks for the clarification, James!
  5. If "Back to the Future" was released today, some shitty director would get it, some crappy teenage heart throb would be the lead, Robin Williams would be the Doc, and Hans Zimmer/Rupert Gregson-Williams/Klaus Badelt would score it.

    Thank goodness for the '80's.

  6. One of the things I enjoy when a title like this is released is the (almost) universal (no pun intended?) joy that's voiced in various messageboards from posters throughout the world.

    I'm sat here (now listening to Goldsmith's 100 Rifles) flicking between here, the FSM and Intrada's forums.

    My only big worry is that will they release this 2 CD set in INDIA? sad

    Actually, it would have been nice to have the tunes. They play just as an important role in the film as the score.

    Honestly speaking, i don't have problem with songs but when it is just dominates the score on the album, that just annoys me. I agree some songs are really good but at the same time, score is really great. My point is at very first release itself, they should have given high priority to the score than songs. However, late better than never.

    Well, songs will 99% of the time sell more records than score. Yes, I agree that the amount of score on the original release was embarrassing but the original release was actually a very good album! But everything has now been corrected.

    Shit yeah, one of the hugely anticipated ones for me... BTTF, even at 50 minutes it's still going to kick more butt than most current 75 minute releases. Silvestri's score is fun, actionpacked and introduced his trademark sound to the masses with a brilliantly memorable theme. Without BTTF my interest in scores wouldn't have been as big as it was back when I started taking notice of this particular genre of music.

    Do I have to add I have ordered it ? Seriously ? Well I did in case you wondered !!!!! punk

    The fact is i am very very addict to Back to the Future III score than BTTF. It contains lot of good stuff, especially western style of music. On score album, Point of no return track just rocks and works superbly in film too.

    I checked the tracklisting: so many short tracks, again! I don't like it. And anyway, what I hear on the Back to the Future Trilogy CD is more than enough for me. I never listen to those action tracks, so I guess the material on that CD will do for me.
    But I'm glad that this Holy Grail for so many of you has finally been released!

    No, and they won't release it in the UK or France or Greece or Australia or Nepal, either. The only way to get it is to order from one of the online soundtrack retailers. If you don't have a credit card then I guess you have a problem.
