This score is so much fun... Thanks, FSM, for including Gizmo's song and all the fun source music at the end of Disc 1!

Mine arrived while I was at work yesterday. Got home, studied, ate, watched Fringe and, the icing on the cake, listened to Gremlins. I'd somehow forgotten how terrific this score is. The recording is quite good too. I liked that I heard a couple of minor room noises too. I'm not a fan of them being removed. Hearing a page turn here or a chair creak there isn't a musical turn-off for me. It adds to the experience.

I've had "The Fountain/Stripe's Death" stuck in my head for the majority of today. I still love it!

I'll play the original vinyl presentation tonight.

Thanks again to all involved! This is a dream come true!

I think this the first recording where I've heard quite bit of page turning....

I'm with you buddy. I like those room noises, makes me feel like I'm on the WB scoring stage with everyone.

I got my cd on Saturday the 12th! I wonder why there is two tracks titled the same title: First Aid? Couldn't they come up with something different for each tracks for titles? I wonder if one of the last FSM cds will be Gremlins 2? I even wonder if FSM has extra copies of the booklets to Outland, Poltergeist, Twilight Zone and Gremlins so i don't have to carefully take out mine and read them with nervousness of ruining them by handling them?

No, Gremlins 2 won't be one of the last FSM CDs, because 1. Lukas confirmed that Gremlins was the last Jerry Goldsmith score that FSM has released (they also won't release any John Williams or Quincy Jones scores either) and 2. Varèse Sarabande holds the rights to this title. So it's up to them to release an expanded CD.

Mine arrived today - a week earlier than I had expected it! ...Gotta like that! Listening now, and boy, does this sound great - I have been listening to an awful, evil b*&t for years now; sure is nice to actually hear the levels and textures in this score!

Listened to it last night. Great service (to the UK) SAE.

Haven't heard it since I saw the film in the 80s. JG's comedies aren't my favourite thing, although there's a lot of truly fine music in this score. The sound is great too.

Received this yesterday.

Wow.

It's difficult to find words to describe how fabulous this is! After so many years of waiting, this totally exceeds my expectations! The score is superb - we knew that - but the sound quality of this thing is extraordinary. Presentation is equally spot on!

And great to have the original album included. It sounds like the Goldsmith LP tracks have been restored from the new masters too, which is a bonus!

An 11/10 for this. Stunning. Thanks FSM!

The release of the year for me (as awesome as 1941 was, this will get more airplay)! And so well timed! My seven year-old son just saw, and fell in love with, the film only a couple of short months ago. Watching him and his three year-old sister in my rearview mirror dancing and singing along to "The Gremlin Rag" has been a sheer joy, where the years that separate their father from them dissolve away and we're just a car full of kids all having a blast with one of the most memorable scores of the '80s! Thanks so much, FSM! I never thought this would see the light of day. My list of holy grails dwindles ever more...

Seconded! I wish the girl who had sung for Gizmo could have been credited, but I suspect her name has been lost to antiquity. I always knew it wasn't Howie Mandel singing, but I assumed it was just electronic.

And what a treat to have new Christmas music from the Gremlins and 1941 source tracks. It's so neat that the entire track was performed and recorded!

Jeez! Brings back memories of being 18 years old... brings back some of the magic that movies had back then (for a youngster at that age and time)... Gorgeous listen, brings a big smile, uh, grin to my face big grin
Well done FSM, thanks a lot!!!

"Yum yum."
