I remember MV talking about a David Arnold release that was ready to go until Paramount put a halt to it.

If that release was STEPFORD WIVES, I'm glad to see that the situation was sussed out.

And a complete DENNIS THE MENACE? Also nice.


That one could also be Shaft. But I hope to see that one released as well some day. Stepford Wives will depend on the samples if I'll buy that one. Saw the film years ago and can't remember the music very well.

I get a very strong Edward Scissorhands vibe from that clip. And that's a good thing!

Stunning score, but this suite strangely puts the unforgettable main theme after some quieter material.

Start this video at 4:17 and listen to the end and I GUARANTEE you'll want to buy this album.

Lair AND The Stepford Wives? Well, that's a good three hours of 'virtual CDRs' I can get rid of...

And happy to see Lair has Kaska's music too...

The film seems like it was temped with Elfman, I'll be curious to read the liner notes, but it's unmistakably Arnold's own creation, tied with ID4 as my favorite score of his and one of my favorite scores of "the aughts".

RE: Mr. Baseball, I get your joke of course (ie. Dennis the Menace is lightweight, I guess*) but of course since Mr. Baseball is Varese held in perpetuity I don't think we're really any closer at all...it seems like we'll be lucky just to get the higher profile titles Varese holds.

*Personally, I think Dennis the Menace is a lot of fun, very much of a Great Train Robbery vibe to it at times, but as well as looking back to that, it also looks forward to Mulan, of all things: the villain theme (for Christopher Llyod's character) is a proto version of the Huns theme in that score.

I need to say that this suite demonstrate that the rest score is as great as main theme.
As for me, I'll buy this CD even if it contain only 1 track with Waltz - I'm crazy? big grin

The Stepford Wives was the best score of 2004. This is great news.

Any and all Goldsmith is also welcome.

I, for one, like seeing Don Rumsfeld on the cover of something--a good friend of the family.

For me, the interesting thing here is Elfman's THE UNKNOWN KNOWN. I'm so glad to see this get a proper CD release. I've been kinda worried for a while. It will be mine! smile

The film is fantastic btw. It`s from the same director who did the equally fantastic THE FOG OF WAR.

And the same director who did the Taco Bell breakfast menu commercials.

He, he....that 'same director' you're speaking of is only Errol Morris -- one of the most famous documentary filmmakers of all time! smile In academic circles (and beyond, I'm sure), his THE THIN BLUE LINE is still the object of massive analysis.

I've always found it fascinating how Elfman channels the minimalist sound of Morris' previous collaborations with Philipp Glass into SOP and this one.

My goodness! Does any record label ever come to the rescue like Lala land?! I've been desperate to get the unknown known since it was announced and Arnold's Stepford Wives is one of my grails! Can't wait to order these and I look forward to the other surprises the label announces through the rest of the year!

Back in 2002, when Tim Burton was set as director, it was being reported Elfman
would score "The Stepford Wives". Apparently the producers never got over their loss/love.

I started to listen to some of the samples from Dennis the Menace and I LOVE IT! The harmonica pretty much did it for me. There are times that I try to explore more composers but then Intrada releases Psycho 2 and then LLL releases this. I can't get away from Jerry Goldsmith. I finally bought Hoosiers, and now I have to have these. More Goldsmith for me.

This reminds me of a blog post from 2006... smile

Arnold's main title always reminded me of "Domino" by the Ray Martin Orchestra.
