    For most of the time, that's very true. But sometimes occasionally there will be a score where the song/s are an integral part of the story telling. Much like the songs on the Catch Me If You Can soundtrack, I think that's a fantastic album!


    That's a very good example, I would also cite The Talented Mr. Ripley, Apollo 13, Midnight Cowboy and Playing By Heart.

    Songs should go into the "original soundtrack / music inspired by" crappy cd's for everyone like Miya and co. to enjoy wink


    I didn't say it's good having too many songs on a soundtrack. But if there is a 90 min movie containing 20 min of songs, which are important factors in the story (musical numbers for example), you can put about 50 min of scores along with those 20 min songs. Then we can get good amount of score, probably most of major cues (only if they are selected thoughtfully).

    But if the movie is longer or songs are longer, and there is not enough room for score tracks, they should release two separated albums.

    The problem is, many stupid soundtrack producers don't do the right things. slant

    Songs which don't exist in movies (inspired by blah blah) or have no importance in movies (songs just played in a car, etc.) are out of the question!


    ... and I still hate the idea of defining the term "soundtracks" as song albums and separated from score albums. SCORE is one (important) part of SOUNDTRACK, isn't it? wink

    The song especially as part of the film or source material can be really important.

    I hate to seem sour, but a long time ago I read several of the Maintitles.net reviews. They were plagued with bad grammar and seemed less professional than many of the other review websites.

    I admit I haven't read any of the recent reviews. My comments are not aimed at any one particular person. I'm just bringing it up with the hope that this website will one day be one of the best websites for film score reviews. I am happy to see that so many new Alan Silvestri reviews were just added.


    I had a little time this morning to read in this thread and I find this comment disgusting. If you were paying money to be apart of this site you might have a right to say something. However, this whole thing is free and be grateful that people are willing to donate their time.

    I'm with William, cool it a little Tom. Panthera was making a perfectly valid comment, no need to fly off the deep end.

    I agree that bad grammar should not be at the forefront of this website. Am I saying the reviews have bad grammar? No, because I haven't read many of them (about two I think?). But if they do and it can be fixed, then I'm all for it.

    I mean, I agree with Tom that we should be thankful for having the website in the first place, as it is, but there's no harm in fixing things that can be fixed.

    Beginning the sentence with a capital letter tends to help. biggrin

    (I don't read the reviews, so I have no idea if they need correcting or not to be honest.)

    You reminded me William of my early days in retail. I once had a person (not a customer because he never spent a penny) who came in with a Nikon camera in need of a repair. I suggested we sent it to Nikon for repair but I let him (my mistake) into taking a look at it. I managed to fix it for him but when I said there is no charge but no warranty he got upset feeling I should warranty my work!!! Thus, the comment about expectations when you're doing it for free.

    The compilations are covered by several orchestras: the Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, and Daniel Caine Orchestra. Not my favorites. But ah well; it's free, for me. smile
