Caught this on cable a few days ago and was fairly impressed by the score - Howard Shore in early 90's mode, a'la Silence of the Lambs. Pretty good stuff. Just curious to see if anyone else would like to see this one released.

I have the promo score and I'd say there are very few pieces (mostly based on main title theme) that stand out. So overall it's an average score that has it's moments, IMHO.

SLIVER, now that is a score that deserves attention!

I'd be down. I haven't seen the film in donkeys but I really like Shore's thriller / horror scores, a complete Seven with the songs out of the way is a grail of mine, but I'd take anything at all in the vein of Existenz or Silence of the Lambs.

Count me in!

The question is, will Shore in thriller mode sell better than Shore in comedy mode? Will any label take the risk to find out?

Anyway, beautiful score this. (Also: An Innocent Man, A Kiss Before Dying and Sliver.)

Count me in as well, as to your question wether Shore in thriller mode sells better, I would have to think yes. I'm sure you are alluding to "She-Devil" not getting many sales, but in all honesty, is this the comedy score people remember from Shore? I think "Big" and "Mrs. Doubtfire" are more well known and perhaps accessible in that genre. I personally don't associate Howard Shore with comedy, for me before Lord of the Rings I knew his music mostly from thrillers, the Cronenberg & Fincher movies he scored as well as Silence of the Lambs, ... I would think these would do great in expanded fashion.

So please labels, consider doing Shore expansions!

GUILTY AS SIN would suit me just fine.

As for SINGLE WHITE FEMALE, I don't remember it too well outside of the main title. It was good, though.

It's not only She-Devil, "big" took a couple of years to sell 3000 - and that included special pricing in the end, if I remember correctly.

But I guess you're right. If they have the choice, will the labels tackle "Se7en" first? It's the most famous of these movies. I think the suite on the OST was well put together though.

Also, I wonder if there is anything forthcoming from Shore's own label. They announced to dig up from the archives but their "Vol. 1" came out some time ago.

The reissue of SOUL OF THE ULTIMATE NATION was actually "Collector's Edition Vol. 2", and the (slightly) expanded ED WOOD was "Collector's Edition Vol. 3".

(An aside: I didn't notice that a MAP TO THE STARS dowloadable "single" is available. It says that the full score is coming out on the label in early Autumn.* Hopefully that will be on a CD!

*Funny that it says Autumn rather than Fall. Do Canadians says Autumn? We do here in the UK, but I have gotten used to American labels saying Fall.

Ah, thanks for the clarification! Didn't even know about Ed Wood.
