Did I tell you I took Church Organ as my new mobile phone ring tone?

Anyone notice how "Ravine" was used to score the great theatrical trailer included on the DVD? I think I've given the complete score CD more plays in the past year than ST:TOS or ST:TMP.

I am really loving this!
One track that i find superior on the lp version is "Arrival on the Island"

This is one Barry's most beeeyutiful melodies and only appears briefly in the film version.
Thankfully, JB rearranged it for the album to give it more devolopment.

check it out!

The only minor issue I noted is that the track "Kong's Hand" seems to be repeated in the complete score presentation (at the end of "Get Smashed/Alone in a Bar" and, again, in the following cue "Kong's Hand").

....... Jack runs out and realizes that the Twin Towers look like the rock formation from Skull Island.

Mike


a great moment in the film!

Seeing as Kong wasn't down as limited, I'm guessing this means that all FSM titles are basically being run down with no more re-pressings.

Damn it ! With HeroesCon coming up I can't spare the $30 for this right now. I'll have to see if I can trade for it later perhaps. I have no love for the awful movie big grin but do recall Barry's score very fondly .

If you don't have a great many of JB's works then I guess this is one to have, as a general rule of thumb. It basically says everything.

Finally pulled the trigger on this. I didn't want to be left without a seat when the music stopped playing. wink

I know this is a holy grail for many. But after listening to the samples once again I really don't hear what all the fuss is about. Out of Africa meets Black Hole. Though those are much better scores. Happily passing on this.
