Quartet has announced two CD from top composers featuring scores never before released in their entirety -- FEAR, the 1990 thriller starring Ally Sheedy as a psychic stalked by a murderer, scored by the great Henry Mancini (he included one theme from the score in his irreplaceable collection Mancini in Surround: Mostly Monsters, Murders & Mystery); and THE GAMBLER, the 1974 psychological drama written by James Toback and directed by Karel Reisz, with James Caan as a literature professor who struggles with a gambling addiction, featuring a score by Jerry Fielding based on Mahler's Symphony No. 1 (a 20-minute suite had been featured one of Bay Cities' Jerry Fielding Film Music compilations).

La-La Land has announced an impressive slate of CD releases for May and June, including Shirley Walker's terrific score for the underrated remake of WILLARD; a new edition of Jerry Goldsmith's '60s Western BANDOLERO; an expanded two-disc set of John Williams' replacement score for John Singleton's 1997 historical drama ROSEWOOD; a two-disc set of J. Peter Robinson's music for the long-running TV series CHARMED; a two-disc set of Bear McCreary's music for the CAPRICA TV series; a two-disc set of Geoff Zanelli's Emmy winning score for the miniseries INTO THE WEST; Bill Conti's brassy score for the Armand Assante remake of I, THE JURY; and music from the animated TV series YOUNG JUSTICE.

On June 11, Varese Sarabande plans to release the soundtrack to STUCK IN LOVE, the upcoming romantic comedy-drama about a novelist (Greg Kinnear), his relationship with his ex-wife (Jennifer Connelly) and aspiring-writer children (Lily Collins, Nat Wolff), as well as their own love interests (Logan Lerman, Liana Liberato). The CD will feature songs as well as cues from the original score by Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott.

Intrada plans to release two new CDs next week.

OBLIVION - Anthony Gonzales, Joseph Trapanese

"The superficial cleverness of the plotting, with its elements of amnesia, self-delusion and impossible yearning, at times gestures in the direction of a Christopher Nolan brainteaser (as does the surging score by French band M83, which sounds like electronified Hans Zimmer). But the lack of comparable rigor, ingenuity and procedural detail is naggingly evident, as is the almost feel-good manner in which the story explains away some of its morally troubling implications."

Justin Chang, Variety
