Yes, that's the case.

Wondering why the e-mail "confirming" shipment was sent almost a month ago.


The mailing label was created at that time, we'll get the orders out the moment we have the AGATHA autographed bookets

Only Xebec could have actually seen Project Metalbeast. I don't think even Pope watched it all the way through when he scored it wink
What was it MacReady, a 7 out of 10 :-P


fyI, if you have AMAZON PRIME I think the film is available there (at least in the USA)

Given that we're all stuck at home, it might be worth a look just to hear the score within context of the film.

Mine arrived at work and I'm excited to take a listen.Soundbites sounded great.....didn´t have a chance to pick it up yet, for it was sent to my workspace and due to that f...virus..I rather stay at home.So maybe in a couple of month....oh man.
As should all of you folks..stay healthy!

Finally, I had a chance to listen to the scores.Well..as much as I like them..I always have a little problem with scores that refer too much to other existing ones.In this case you hear throughout the scores just slight variations of themes by Goldsmith ; Williams etc.
But Pope seems like a really humble guy according to the interview in the liner notes and
admits it by himself, which makes it kinda "OK".
I had the same problem while listening to Bruce Broughton´s THREE MUSEKETEERS...it was just too much like DON JUAN and almost note by note to Goodwins FORCE 10 FROM NAVARONE.It always has this copy paste feeling to it.Or those Gordi Haab video game scores, in which he just rewrites notes and patterns from Williams scores.
At least HORNER ripped off himself and old classical masterssmile

But nevertheless a nice listening.

Yeah.
I played My Week With Marilyn and Tim's Vermeer this week and he's obviously channeling Desplat and Williams in those two scores.
Not surprising with the former, as Desplat wrote the main theme.
The Williams is Catch Me If You Can, which was probably on the temp track.
Plus, he orchestrates for those two guys quite often.

This title should be winging its way to me (hopefully) soon from Intrada, with lots of other goodies.

Temp Track love, something every composer for film has to do deal with...

Given the budgets and time Conrad had on these projects, they turned out rather well IMHO.
