Ugh, this board is havin' problems. I made sure to refresh the main page to make sure it hadn't posted, and it wasn't there, so I posted again and now there are two. Oh well, go get Dead Again!

Looking forward to this too - Brian Satterwhite is a great writer and a helluva
nice guy smile I'm sure he did a good job here as usual!

"Dead again" is a true masterpiece.

And La-La Land has one of the fastest deliveries, even to foreign countries (just one week!).

You guys are fantastic!

The re-desingned cover art for Fantastic Voyage in my view is absolutely awful!! Whose idea was that? How bland and uninspiring. It's nowhere near as good as the artwork used on their original release.

Would have been better without ghosting the huge eye over the logo. Looks like a female eye as well. Didn't they go inside a dude?

La-La Land didn't do the original CD release of Fantastic Voyage; Film Score Monthly did. And the new artwork is just another variation of the classic poster art from 1966:

And yes, they did "go inside a dude."

We'll have to agree to disagree on this one. I think the old FSM cover art is really quite terrible (it was their third release, and I was thrilled to have it, but their artwork improved greatly later on). The new one, to me, is striking and a vast, vast improvement.

I think the cover art is gorgeous and striking. It's a bit like the french poster-

Add me to the group that thinks the new cover is a vast improvement. The FSM covers tended to be better sometime after the thick gold/silver borders vanished...another cover LLL improved greatly was Stagecoach. Would love to see them tackle Newman's Prince of Foxes (which can use a sound upgrade and expansion as well) and Goldsmith's Flim Flam Man/A Girl Named Sooner and make beautiful covers for them...Sooner didn't even get a flip-side cover on the original release.

For those who received Dead Again, what are the unreleased tracks like and would you say it's worth the upgrade?

Received Dead Again today, am nearly through it & had to get on this board to give a high
recommendation. There is a bit of everything present in the new cues - expansions of themes, new exciting action
cues, some wild percussive suspense. I haven't detected any dull fluff during the first of sure to be many plays. And the sound....ridiculous clarity, detail buried on the Varese, beautiful, close-miked showcase of an extremely taught performance. And Brian Satterwhite's notes look to be his usual fine work. I'll read next time, too caught up listening. Terrific art direction as usual by Dan Goldwasser.

Everyone griping about structure missing, themes lacking today, all the usual good old days complaints. ...you really should have this, it'll tide you over for 78mins at least.
4 star winner this, who's with me!
