Perhaps Intrada will fix it later, as they did Masters Of The Universe.


Just to play devil's advocate (and perhaps pinball), the difference with MOTU was that the extra was just the album, completely redundant. Here all the extras are different.

I'm a huge Horner fan and, for me, the smaller he goes, the more a fan I am. Horner proves he's a real composer when he has little to work with and creates such haunting soundscapes as exist for Patriot Games. Assault on Ryan's House has probably caused a hole to be scratched in my hard drive as a result of the number of times I play it.

Thanks La-La Land for doing this! The sound on the samples sounds great!

The new GL release was a must buy. Now to patiently await its arrival to find out if my order was one of the few to get an autographed booklet.

Ordered Patriot Games - now I wonder how long it will be before we get an expanded Braveheart?

The MOTU album presentation isn't redundant at all, but thats not the point.

The point is that, in this case, as with MOTU, the whole score could have easily fit uninterrupted on disc 1 and the extras on disc 2.

The way it *has* been presented makes no logical or musical sense whatsoever.

Maybe the cost of producing/licensing necessitated the set be 2 discs, so instead of having the second disc with only around 15mins (which would equally have caused people to complain) on it they split it evenly.

If LLL released it as a 1 disc set without the Film/Album/Clannad versions on then just look at the thread for The Challenge to see what would happen...

Pure speculation of course.

For me personally it doesn't bother me as I do all my listening from lossless rips, but for those who do actually play the CDs I can understand that it could interrupt the flow. Just saying that there are probably good reasons why it's presented as it is.

You're right.

I realise it's now considered "quaint" to actually listen to the item that you bought and not stuff it in an attic somewhere... but if these labels want the format to maintain its superior reputation they're going to have to optimise the "experience".

I realise LLL is the only label that does this - and even then only twice - but it's not a good way to present things.

Not at all. I have one of those multiple cd changers so I can listen to up to 5 CDs without having to drag my lazy ass to the player to change the CD. It takes a couple of seconds to go to the next CD and is ideal for listening to boxsets. Highly recommended!

GREEN LANTERN NEW RELEASE SPECIAL! To celebrate our new release of GREEN LANTERN VOL 2, we are offering Frederik Wiedmann’s GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES: VOL 1 at a special sale price of only $9.98 each. Additionally, we are offering Robert Kral’s GREEN LANTERN: FIRST FLIGHT at a special sale price of only $4.98 each. Sale prices good thru 7/15. Only at www.lalalandrecords.com

Normally, I do not buy all-synthesizer-score CDs (yes, that includes my not buying Goldsmith’s RUNAWAY, CITY HALL, and ALIEN NATION).
But after checking out the first episodes of GREEN LANTERN, via a DVD loan from the library, I enjoyed Wiedmann’s “orchestral” approach to the action music.
Because I like the music of the show and the show’s soundtrack CD has an attractive 30% price drop from LLL, I’ll buy GREEN LANTERN: TAS: VOL 1 and I’ll use it for my treadmill workout.

My copy of Patriot games arrived from LLLR, and so far, it sounds pretty damned good.

There is a lot of great material here. Interesting to hear Electronic Battlefield.

Got my copy of Patriot Games today. Haven't had a chance to upload and listen, but the liner notes are some of the most outstanding this side of a super-special-release of something. Really awesome stuff!

One curiosity: Tony Hinnigan and Mike Taylor's credits were left off of the new release. I wonder why. They were credited (albeit under "special thanks") in the original release. Considering their importance to Horner's work, especially this one, it seems curious they were left off.

Wow

Both Green Lanterns waiting for me when I got home today. 6 days to the UK - very impressed.

Even nicer surprise were the signed covers for both volumes.

Listening to Volume 1 now - cracking stuff smile
Amazing that what is effectively a kids animated tv series gets music of this calibre (a bit like MLP in that regard). This is far more enjoyable and rewarding than the latest Jablonsky/Djawadi/Jackman entries into the film scoring genre, and I expect Wiedmann doesn't receive half of what they get.

Just a heads up - we blew through the first 200 signed ccopies of Green Lantern over the Holiday weekend so Freddie offered to sign another 50 for you guys. About 20 of those additional 50 signed booklets are already spoken for. So, grab them while you can!

Was glad to get the autographed GL booklet, was a little sad when I noticed the autograph was smeared. By the looks of it I'm guessing maybe a few ended up that way, since the plastic wrap on my CD had bits of silver ink on its front and bottom sides.

Oh well.

I'm usually not a fan of the all synthesized scores, but TGL is really well done. I would love to know what Widemann uses for his string sounds and orchestral samples. They sound great. Utilizing some live players also helps the overall sound, but I'm really enjoying volume 1 right now.

Did anyone else sign Volume 1 covers? I only ask as volume 2 is clearly "Frederick Wiedmann", while vol 1 is just two initials. Just wondering who they might be.
