Pass on Matrix Revolutions.The existing album is a more than adequate representation of the score.Glad its available for the completists though.

It's so nice that you feel it's so important to share with us that you aren't purchasing this item and yet have the free time to post about it.

:-)

How is it any different from all those "ordered" posts?

I know you have the reputation of being this site biggest douche, but you don't have to show that in every post :-)


It's always lovely to have someone like you enter a thread and use the term "biggest douche" directed at someone else.

Have you ever heard the term "HYPOCRITE"?

You are a wonderful example of one.

:-)

Ford A. Thaxton


Ah, you called me wonderful. See, you can say nice things ;-)

You just made progress, Ford :-)

I for one am very excited about Matrix Revolutions; I don't own previous releases of this score.

Digital Bits just posted an article with some information on the Twilight Time release of the film that includes an interview with Jeff Bond about the LLL release:

The Blue Max blurb said it starts shipping the 25th.
I ordered mine within half-an-hour of the announcement but just received an e-mail saying it's not shipping till the 28th or 29th.
Oh well, my excellent Intrada Bernstein set will fill the additional waiting time well enough.

For those who wish that the MATRIX RELOADED and MATRIX REVOLUTIONS covers 'matched', and use iTunes, I've got the solution for you (depending on if you want the WB 90th Banner, or the Expanded Archival border).

Enjoy! smile

Nice work, man. Is anyone else bothered by the crooked bricks in the wall in that Reloaded image? Every time I pull that album out, my eye's drawn to the fact that it's not parallel to the WB logo bar.... I know, First World Problems and all that.

Great... now we're ALL going to see that...

LOL. Optical illusion. The frame of the shot is slightly slanted. So the bricks are not really crooked.

Thanks ScoringSessions for going out of your way of making those alternate Reloaded and Revolutions' covers.

I plan on getting Revolutions but not atm. There's still plenty of titles (both recent and old) from various labels I want to order first, but I'm still excited for it none the less.

You're welcome! The WB 90th version of REVOLUTIONS was already done, since we had really wanted to try to get it out last year... but making the RELOADED one just took a few minutes adapting the original Photoshop file. Yes, I could have gone back and fixed the slant... but I'm not George Lucas.

I guess I was fortunate, I ordered 1 minute after the announcement and it shipped the same day. I reckon yours will arrive before mine, it takes ages for a Biplane to cross the Atlantic.
I must say, I'm very impressed with the sound samples.

I was worried I'd be defeated by the feeding frenzy, I ordered REVOLUTIONS alone just for the maestros' personal brush stroke.

THE BLUE MAX looks soooo good,
I'm hoping the sound really eclipses the Intrada pressing...
That'll make it a must buy for me.


Ordered this immediately, (80140) got my shipping order today and it's in the mail now. It seems that this may be the definitive issue of Jerry's score. I'm wondering how quickly this will sell out. The Intrada sold out almost instantly, as I recall.

I can't recall how many times I was disappointed with the sound of all the "BLUE MAX'S I have purchased in the past. I hope this Lalaland is the ONE!

Im most eager to hear every one's comments on the final product when it lands at your home (THE BLUE MAX i.e.)

I was never a big fan of BLUE MAX, but I love Jim's design -- as usual!

Same here, I bought the intrada album but just didn't play it that often. But given all the complaints about sound quality I've read over the years, it is nice to see this Goldsmith score get a definitive release. Who knows I might end up taking to it one day and I'll be glad to know this release exists!

Every version has been definitive at the time of its release.. So will the next one, and the one after.

Stop it people! The next one will be a full re-recording ( The plans are in the can for now). Goldsmith often re-recorded the score as an album presentation; revising and fleshing out with better orchestration in favour of a more symphonic suite form. CAPRICORN ONE, DAMIEN -OMEN II and MASADA being very good examples. Goldsmith more less did the same with the excellent suite he recorded at CTS Wembley stadium as evident on the GOLDSMITH CONDUCTS GOLDSMITH album-which to my ears is one his finest albums and with an amazing performance of the THE BLUE MAX suite. If Tadlow label were to reproduce the same albeit with a more symphonic form THE BLUE MAX album will not only gain more fans and awareness but create a special reverence for the recent issues of the Original recording. I am a die hard fan of that Suite and it represented a better allure for me than the OST until the Intrada/la La Land re-issues. So James and Luc - please get that recording out in a year or so. I want to listen to the whole score's full out symphonic bombast in 32 bit digital recording. In the meantime I will hold onto and enjoy this set. Thanks.

P.S. Thor: Which do you prefer the Suite recording or the OST? Give the Suite a chance and if you like it then you may grow to like the OST someday!

Jerry Goldsmith with The Philharmonia did not record the suite at CTS studios as he very rarely recorded there apart from a few scores like Damien Omen II and Under Fire. He much preferred recording at Sony Whitfield Street (a studio I loved recording in) with their brilliant in-house engineer Mike Ross-Trevor....or Bruce Botnick if film being mixed back in LA.

The Blue Max suite and that whole album were however recorded by Mike at Walthamstow Town Hall the day or so after their London concert
