Well, I don't think Insurrection was ever in doubt. The only thing we don't know is when.
As for Nemesis. I'm sure it will come..... eventually, but I suspect the OST will be on the shelf next to all the lovely expanded CDs for some time to come. As we all know Varese hold the rights to loads of scores and doesn't seem in a rush to do anything with them.
Good question! On the one hand, if the labels need to get things out before the big Trek merchandising shut down happens at the end of the year, then it's likely. On the other hand, releasing it on the same day as the mega-TOS box will mean sales will be down. I was honestly thinking we'd see this about this time next year after the next trek movie was long out in theatres.
Got to admit that Nemesis bored me. I'd be fully content closing the book on the feature film set once Insurrection gets it's day to expand.
Trust me. While overall it probably IS overall the most boring Goldsmith Trek score just because a fair percentage of low key suspense music compared to any others, it's fully capable of sustaining a fantastic and exciting 48 minute album program...which wasn't what we got because the choices for the album were typically terrible (before anyone gets up in arms, let me remind you that Goldsmith left off Lancelot's Theme ENTIRELY from his First Knight album!) There is much fantastic music in Nemesis, some of which is thematic material not heard since his his original TMP masterpiece. Take out 25 minutes on the existing album and replace it with a different 25 minutes and it actually could've lived up to Varese's hype at the time...
I will say that while I (since I'm crazy) would of course prefer a complete score release (which would have to be 2 discs, just barely unless there are notable alternates), I wouldn't *really* mind this one done in merely expanded Deluxe Edition style, leaving out a few of the most boring suspense cues. Best news for some people here? No choir on this score...
I for one am more excited for Insurrection complete, though, because some of the tracks actually on the album actually were alternates of even stronger pieces in the film...bring it on GNP! (hopefully before the yearlong cut-off)
