Weird no mention anywhere on any threads I could find about Philip Glass’ score for Jane. They sold out the Hollywood Bowl last night for its premiere with live orchestra.

And The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra recorded the soundtrack ... as I was orchestra contractor !

JJH here on the forum pointed out this score to me last week.

As with most anything Glass does, I really enjoyed it.

I have been mentioned. This is acceptable. Carry on.

It was great hearing William Ross conducting, who has gotten zero mention on Facebook and everywhere else for this work. In fact a couple reviews said Glass, who doesn't conduct, conducted it!

The Philip Glass re-interpreted with orchestra score sounded wonderful and really worked well with the film. And seeing and hearing Goodall speak was awe-inspiring but, come on, somebody give Ross a break here!

Oh, it wasn't a sellout but it was pretty well attended.

I've heard the score, and it didn't really do much for me, I'm afraid. It's as if Glass is now trying to do the post-minimal romanticism that other, younger composers (once influenced heavily by him) now do better. People like Abel Korzeniowski and Dario Marianelli etc. But he deserves points for trying. Ultimately, I prefer it when he's more hardcore himself -- like the relatively recent VISITORS (2013) or O APOSTOLO (2011).

I never understood this attitude. Unlike most other film composers Philip Glass isn’t “trying” to do anything. It’s not a style that he is affecting, it’s who he is. It’s be like saying Picasso imitators are doing better Picasso-imitations than Picasso himself.

Just some really dumb comments, sorry.

There's no "attitude". It's an observation. What's so hard to understand about that?

The type of sound Glass is going after in JANE is much better executed by the aforementioned composers. I could level a similar criticism at Marianelli when he -- in recent years -- has tried to emulate contemporary film score trends that don't suit his sensbility very well.

JANE is OK for what it is, but I prefer Glass when he's even more "himself".

Just got the CD from Amazon and while it's not listed as such, this is another "MOD (Media on Demand)" item which I am returning.

Does anyone know if the UK CD is pressed? I have found a lot of the SONY CDRs in the US are pressed CDs in the UK.

So tired of this B.S. I got screwed on ELLE, THE CROWN and MONEY MAKER with this in the past.

It does say the following on the Amazon page:

https://www.amazon.com/Original-National-Geographic-Picture-Soundtrack/dp/B074W8MKRF

Note: This product is manufactured on demand when ordered from Amazon.com.
When sold by Amazon.com, this product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

But, I think you are correct, that it did not say that until recently.
I have the one from Amazon UK being shipped to me, but it will take another week or so before it arrives.

This score was OK, nothing special.

Yes, the reason it says that is because I informed them of the incorrect product description when I submitted my return. It wasn't there last night.

I think it's a lovely soundtrack. Perhaps not the most memorable but definitely emotive and some nice textures.

The UK CD that I purchased from: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B074W8MKRF
is indeed a pressed CD, not a CDR.

Thank you for letting me know John.
