    What most people don't realise is that not one single track in BLADERUNNER is original score. Ridley Scott plundered the Vangelis and Aphrodite's Child extensive back catalogues to fill his film with pre-existing music.

    This was the reason that an "original" soundtrack release took so long.

    April Fools Tim?

    Ha, ha...good one! A mid-conversation April Fool's works much better than creating a new thread.
    I am extremely serious.

  4. Intrada are releasing (again) Goldsmith's score to Night Crossing - a good chance for those who missed the opportunity when it was released before.

    With these re-re-releases it's funny to read the inventive 'blurb', trying to describe a new release in terms of same music but slightly better sound.

    But this release is the height of inventiveness - trying to make the inclusion of more silence within tracks an appealling selling point. Apparently the original releases omitted these pauses to help the listening experience. But now they have been put back in.

    Apparantly Nick Redman has access to the original tapes for UNDER FIRE. Does this mean we'll finally get the original score? I hope so.

    I'm just glad the score has been remixed because the original was crushed to hell!

    Great review beer

    This as the music ( not just film score ) that opened the way for me to "understand" and enjoy atonal and avant-garde works.

    Jesus, for a moment there I thought you were referring to Deep Rising. I was worried we were going to have another Michael Bay fiasco on our hands.

    I didn't like DEEP RISING, film and score are big pants IMO. Now I've said that I'll go read James review.

    Oh so do I, but I think avant-garde is a stretch (unless you happen to share a name with a certain Norse god).

    Edit: Oh wait, you said film AND score. Never mind! dizzy

    Talking about how many of Goldsmith's 90's efforts got bashed at the time ( I was there and indeed they did get bashed ) James, in his Deep Rising review pointedly says...

    'Perhaps it was just a case of not knowing what you’ve got till it’s gone.'

    ...and maybe it is? JG was getting "bashed" at a time when there were a lot of strong film scores, in todays climate of Z-clones I guess a score like this can sound very fresh and exciting. Maybe I should give it a re-listen?

    First Knight is the one that really sticks in my mind. I remember how floored I was when I first heard it and I expressed that opinion on one of the film music mailing lists or newsgroups at the time and was met by a parade of abuse from people calling me an idiot for liking such a piece of shit, I should go and listen to The Wind and the Lion if I wanted to hear a real film score, etc. It was exceptionally odd. (And virtually all Goldsmith scores after Basic Instinct were absolutely panned until he died, when people suddenly said how great they all were.)

    I must admit I wasn't enamoured with a lot of JG's 90's out-put but came to re-evaluate more positively later on. First Knight was among a number of exceptions though, loved that one right from the beginning.
