    "Getting rid" of CDs isn't so much of an issue nowadays with ripping being so common. But if these off-loads were pre-ripping then goodness (for Powder at least.)

    POWDER was. The other two weren't, and I still have them in iTunes. I'm considering deleting them, though, not only "morally", but really because I don't like them very much.

    Are you saying that, because you no longer own the CDs you don't feel you should keep the mp3s you made?

    I like your honesty. At some point I'd like to steal myself to be strong and go through my CD collection and get rid of what I don't want / like. It'll be great to get it to a manageable size.

    I'd certainly like to do this myself. It has been ages since I actually put a physical CD in the player and listened to it. 99% of my time is with mp3/wma files and I wonder sometimes what the use of having all these CDs lying around not doing anything. The majority are in boxes, littering the house.

    I have 2 copies of each score (PC hard drive and external back up) and an additional 2 copies of all 8,000 "favourites" on my 2 mp3 players (which amounts to 16+ days of continuous music) so I don't need to keep the CDs.

    I therefore wouldn't agree with Thor's (and the legal stance?) of deleting the music once I sold the CDs.

    You could make a film music castle with them? You'd be the king of course.
  6. One of the things I've been wondering is how best to access the digital CDs I have on my PC (and external hard drive)?

    My ideal scenario would be to be able to have access to all my CDs that I have ripped (and playlists) using my TV as the interface. My ideal scenario would be to flick (in an iPod way) through the albums, selecting which one to listen to - all from the comfort of my armchair.

    My rudimentary knowledge limits me to thinking that either I'd have some sort of link between my current PC and the TV (through a connection I have no knowledge of at the moment) or to have a media centre(?) that is directly linked to the TV and that is distinct from my PC. And this would also be able to play CD/DVD discs.

    Is this feasible at the moment?

    The improved sound quality might change your mind. I can't wait to "hear" this version.

    I've gone through 2 version of this score already, and you can clearly hear, even with the 96kbs encryption, that the sound is definitively improved. My order can't come soon enough!!!
  9. I'm still undecided as to whether I should get it... I heard the older release one, but it didn't win me over. I love the suite on one of Goldsmith's compilation albums though. To those in the know, will this one be selling fast?

    This is one of my least favourite Goldsmith scores of all time. I had the Sony CD for many years, and gave it DOZENS of chances, but I think it only happened once or twice that I actually managed to stay through the whole thing. To me, it was simply too bombastic, lots of "screaming" brass and percussion that went on and on. It's the complete anti-thesis of what I like to listen to these days. So I sold it off just a few months ago.

    Still, it's good to know that they cleaned up the sound a bit for this one. While the Sony was perfectly OK for its age, it still had a way to go and I'm glad they found the right source elements to fix it up.

    I'd like to see the film some day. I'm sure it's fine and appropriately "rousing" in context.

    What about the 16 minute suite on the Jerry Goldsmith Suites & Themes album? And also, what's the deal with you not liking "bombastic" music anymore?! It's utterly beyond me how anyone can stop liking properly good brassy film music! dizzy

    Yeah, that suite may be more up my alley, even though in this case it's a matter of not liking the MUSIC, period.

    Actually, once in a while I'll still play something "bombastic" (how can I not, when it makes up about 85% of my soundtrack collection?). Right now, it's David Newman's BILL & TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE, for example. And Rammstein is a favourite band of mine. But with the tinnitus and some other stuff, I spend FAR more time with the little calm music I've got.

    Don't you picture a time when your taste may "shift" a bit, young padawan?

    I don't foresee that happening any time soon to be honest. My tastes, my preferences, are still very similar to what they were 10 years ago - they've just expanded a lot since then. My favourite film composers will no doubt remain to be John, Jerry and James. But I've certainly discovered a lot in those 10 years. And contrary to what a certain Greek might think, I'm just as passionate about the 'calm' stuff too.

    Sure, there might come a day when I settle down a bit and I'll listen to more calming music more often. But I know deep down that my passion for loud, brassy, in-your-face orchestral and film music will not wither so easily! Call it faith, if you want. wink

    I have to say that even though I love both The Blue Max and Islands in the Stream (particularly the latter - part of my Goldsmith top five) I was in two minds over whether to buy either of these because of having the earlier albums. But then, as is typical, I bought both. I'm no audiophile but it will be very nice to hear Blue Max in better sound (and the album looks like it's assembled far more sensibly) and I decided Islands in the Stream is enough of a favourite that owning two different recordings is no bad thing.

    There is some particularly fine action writing which Goldsmith left out in his re-recording.

    I've been into film music for 35 years now. As you get older you'll find certain scores you loved may not have as much appeal later on but the reverse is true also, where you'll find new found appreciation, as I've said before, I need all styles and pace in my music and I don't see any of that diminishing.

    Thor, The Blue Max is a great film, well worth your time and if that isn't enough Ursula Andress gets her fun bags out for the lads too*. lick cool

    *a scene that's always edited for TV showings except when I saw it on Channel 5 last year in an afternoon showing, I'm surprised that slipped through the censor.
