That last thing I consider in a day- any day, are samples. for an upcoming release.

Pure CaCa, this peculiar gripe.

Speaking of "anal" you both can kiss my ass too.

Seriously.

I already made my apologies to Neil. I don't know why you keep trolling.

I'll just add 2 more to the already blocked Mr. Johnson.

maybe theu could put fewer mp3s with higher bit rate...
and a "download all" option! smile


I'd prefer that as well, but Lukas only changed from exactly that previous approach to the status quo 2-3 years ago and I guess he's not planning to go back.

I hope though that he will consider a "play all" option like SAE has for other labels' releases. smile


If you use firefox, get the foxytune plugin. It does exactly that.



Load the CD webpage into the browser window of Winamp and all of the tracks can be played at once via a box at the bottom of the screen.

This is a holy grail release, and I only have a handful of those. Thanks Lukas and the FSM team! smile

Talking about samples (wink) when I listened to the first track "Aquarium (Camille Saint-Saëns)" I had a huge sense of déjà vu... I couldn't place this for a moment, at first I thought I heard it sampled in a hip hop track but I couldn't find it in any database... than it hit me... Chris Young's score for 'The Power' (sadly only out on lp) is extremely similar to the opening of that track!

It's a beautiful score, well done FSM.

One of my favourite ever films, thank you so much for this.

Oh my god -- it is here. Ordered, of course. One of the most beautiful scores I could ever hope to hear. And now available in this form...totally unbelievable. First, thank you Mr. Morricone for creating such a beautiful masterpiece, and thank you, Mr. Kendall for bringing this score to us in this amazing crown jewel package.

Crikey - a Morricone score with 49 posts, what's the world coming to!!

Steady on you lot, have you all been drinking?!!

I've received my copy of this glorious score. I'll have to wait until this evening to start listening. I was able to briefly sample at work. Just beautiful. Thanks again to one and all. I hope someone with more expertise than mine will post an analysis of all of the music on this 2 disc set. It's a little overwhelming to digest all at once.

P.S. I haven't read the liner notes yet -- I'm sure they are the usually thorough FSM analysis! Didn't want to imply that FSM hadn't provided enough info -- but I'm honestly curious about everyone's response to the additional music, etc.

I just got around to ordering this last night. Many of the samples put it squarely up my alley, since I've been trying to listen to more contemplative, self-consciously "lovely" music lately.

Two cd scores by Ennio Morricone Days of Heaven and the three score sale cd GDM 2041 just arrived today. I am halfway through the first cd of DOH and it has an extremely rich sound. This is another title to remove from the list of holy grail cd releases.
There should be no more complaints or "what if?" thoughts regarding this classic.

I have enjoyed all of the FSM releases that I have ever purchased.
However, of all of the scores that FSM has produced and released over the years, I think that this release of Days of Heaven would have to rank as one of THE most important and long overdue achival releases by any company and certainly FSM.

It will appeal to any fan of music or film scores or Ennio Morricone.
Thanks again Lukas and FSM for another job well done.
Please continue to do the work that you do, because everyone in the supply chain theoretically "wins" with each release. What a pleasant surprise to think that this has finally become available. The sound and the music are magnificent.

Sincerely - RA.

Received mine today (and my word, what times we live in! The unused Barry score to GOLDEN CHILD arrived in the same package!), and, having listened to Disc 1, I can only say:

1) What sheer bliss to hear the original soundtrack album again, complete with Chicago furnace sound effects, Linda Manz narration, rambunctious Doug Kershaw material, the wonderful crickets at the end, all in amazing, simply amazing refurbed sound!

2) And then, the music from the film left off the original LP, music of exquisite beauty, such elegant, heartfelt simplicity, carrying such an emotional wallop!

This is my favorite Morricone score, and one of my very favorite scores of all time (and the film, too, my all-time favorite).

And to think I haven't even sampled the second disc yet. Wow.

The times we live in!

This is a fabulous release. Morricone isn't an instant buy for me by any stretch, although I do think he's come up with more than a few masterpieces in his day and Days of Heaven surely must be counted amongst them. The sound quality is absolutely top notch and the notes are the usual high FSM quality. Thanks to all involved for releasing this. In anticipation of receiving my copy, I watched the film for the first time and was blown away so you have my gratitude for introducing me to the film also!.

I hope some of you on the fence will consider picking this up!

Chris

I hope this doesn't sound too pretentious -- but I am treating this release like a fine, rare wine. I've listened to the first disc twice. And am now trying to digest how utterly beautiful it is. The second disc will wait for another week or so. I just want to savor this set -- spend time with it and let it sink in. It's that good, in my opinion.
