  1. I believe that the Director's Cut reveals the masterpiece the film really is. Did I speak of shortcomings? Nonsense. The story breathes the spirit of Gene Roddenberry like few others.

  2. I think that The Motion Picture is actually underrated as well. I saw the director's cut, actually.

    Half an hour of shuffling through my Jerry Goldsmith playlist has brought up Powder, The Salamander, Alien, Islands in the Stream, The Wind and the Lion, Papillon and The Last Run. Christ, this guy was good.

    I've been on a Goldsmith high myself lately. I can't wait to hear The Blue Max rerecording, as well as the bonus material on that album.

    ST:TMP is a great film, under-appreciated because it hardly moves along or some such nonsense. I love that slow-paced audiovisual storytelling myself, and the chemistry of the cast is undeniable.

    THE WAR OF THE VENDEE - KEVIN KASKA

    Ok, after hearing this gem once again I'm now confident that this composer would be up to the challenge to write the next Star Wars score, because he's basically channeling Williams and The Patriot here. What a talent !


    cool, I'll have to check it out then
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh

    Nice try, but Thor would never make playlists. Don't you know you have to be a professional to do that?
  7. NP: CLOSE ENCOUNTERS of the 3RD KIND

    The 1998 Arista album, this is perfection ! love

    But to be real honest, I'd welcome an expansion. 3 CD's, the entire score as heard in the film, every possible alternate, the original album, all in remastered sound and with extensive liner notes. I'd pay a maximum total of 39.95 dollars for it. It would be ordered the moment it comes out.

  8. I have both Arista releases and several recordings of the suite. I think I'm fine with that.

    Let me also add for the record that the most goosebump-inducing, complicated and outright heavenly finale that Williams has ever written was for this flick.

    33 minutes that completely blows away TFA. wink

    Oh and I would like 'End Titles: Director's Cut' in there as well.

    ^Now playing. In terms of artistic expression I hold this score in higher regard than Star Wars. I terms of geeky scoregasm it's the other way around.

  10. SMALL SOLDIERS: THE VIDEOGAME - GIACCHINO

    This actually is tied with MOH:Frontline as my favorite scores by the man.

    It's Fun with a capital F... it's absolutely bonkers in the percussion department... the huge choir adds the awesomeness to it... it has a series of themes that are truly memorable and amazingly developed... plus it has this incredibly expressive, militaristic sound that I love.

    I wish to see (and hear) an official release before I die. punk

  11. THE BLUE MAX - BONUS CUES

    My CD's just in... Decided to start listening to the material which comes after the main recording, and a big part of why I wanted this set in the first place. It's essentially a new compilation from Goldsmith by the Prague Philharmonic in great form, holding some very interesting cues / scores (some I'm hearing for the first time here).

    MacArthur : First time I heard it in this suite form. I only knew of the march. Good stuff.
    Patton : 2 great marches are stunningly performed. Better than the original versions.
    A Gathering of Eagles : I didn't know this one. But what a fine cue it is.
    The Sand Pebbles : Again, not too familiar except for the love theme. A nice 6-cue suite that impresses a lot.
    Inchon : Poor recording aside initially, I love this score. To hear these themes re-recorded is absolutely astounding.
    Tora! Tora! Tora! : Stunning new rendition of the main title. Brilliant job.
    The Chairman : Like those before, asian-flavored. 3-part suite which sounds superb. Didn't know it at all, but I can learn to love this (God, that main title).
    The Mummy : Totally love this, most of the highlights in an excellent 15 minute suite. Superb fun !
    Omen III: The Final Conflict : 3-part suite that sounds as amazing as you'd expect. A fitting finale of the album.

    Have yet to hear The Blue Max but I read it's stunning. cool

    Re-recording of 2015. Amazing!

    Is there any way of obtaining this CD (the 1998 Arista) without having to get a mortgage? I recently reviewed this score for my site and I wrote the review off Spotify!

  15. Come to think of it now, Jerry is the most legendary film composer that ever lived. I'm just thankful that I'm alive in a period where his music has shined for a long time and will continue to do so.

    That said, it would be extremely interesting if James Fitzpatrick would re-record Hoosiers someday. How would that turn out, I wonder... smile

    Aside from The Five Tones I never heard what everyone else hears in this score. sad
    To me it's one of Williams' least accessible works.
