I SO ordered this. Can't wait to get these. Been wanting these scores forever. Thanks Intrada!!!

For those that don't like that 1987 sound to Folks CBML, you either are too young, or too old. I was th e perfect age to enjoy this film in 1987 and the score fits the time period and the movie perfectly. This movie didn't need a huge orchestral score. It needed what Robert delivered and might I add was told to deliver. It's a great score with some truly lovely beautiful writing. Give it a chancesmile


Yes sir sums up my thoughts exactly.

I have not played SLIPSTREAM since after I read that it might have an issue, and I am still waiting to hear any news so I can listen to it again or toss it.

If you're so busy drowning in your own self-interest to enjoy the album, I'll buy it off you for $20 instead of you tossing it.

Do you ever have anything POSITIVE to say about any new release? Sheesh.

Yes, I do, but right now a good release is far and few between. I posted in the OBLIVION thread that I enjoyed the score. You must have missed that one. The labels are scrapping to release unreleased titles like Can't Buy Me Love and it is not my type of score. I might pick it up down the road for the Paradise score. Am I not allowed to NOT like something? Most re-releases of recent, I have preferred the original release, oh my I sound like Thor! I am waiting to receive my copy of Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters-Andrew Lockington, which will probably be my favorite of the year, from what I have heard in the cues available.

@ Bond1965 - So you have no problem with bootlegs?
@ LeHah - I also do not sell bootlegs - if it is a bootleg, it will be tossed.

I think Peter hit it on the head. Just a style for people who were around at a certain time. Though I doubt I would have enjoyed this style even if I had grown up watching all these 80s films. Who knows. To me it seems like a strange combination to put a fully orchestral score with a not-so-orchestral score. Sounds like some people are more interested in the Folk while others are more interested in the Newman, could have been combined with similar styles of scores for more happy fans.

Well, thanks for the laugh in any case. If your morality was so easily offended, you'd toss it without thinking twice.

So you classify scores YOU don't care for as "scraping" by the labels? What a smug, elitist thing to say. And no I didn't read your comment in the Oblivion thread because for the most part I avoid reading or posting in threads to scores I don't care for. You should try it sometime.

After a second listen Newman's cues really grew on me. Regarding Folk's cues, a few in the beginning have a pop feel, but the rest sounded like classic Folk to me.

Paradise is awfully pretty...I generally can't stand Newman in "manic" comedy mode, where all of the wacky moments are Danny Elfman lifts and all of the sensitive bits are cribbed from James Newton Howard, but his more low-key dramatic scores are the true expression of his talents.

I am going to deflect some of the stones from you Sirusjr. I have to agree with you, I have loved everything Robert Folk has composed that is available, but this is not my type of Folk. I am amazed at how many people have bootlegs of everything here and they post it. I have not played SLIPSTREAM since after I read that it might have an issue, and I am still waiting to hear any news so I can listen to it again or toss it.

Hey, wait a minute. What happened to the "exchange student with broken English" shtick?

Must be fast learner ...

"This clues fun? No. I red most of the posters guess and convinced that it must be one title, and people our mad because it was not the one that they guest. I like when title is told and we can purchase right now and arrive in weeks time."

I'd never heard "Paradise" before. Reminds me of some of the breif lighter moments from "The Brave Little Toaster". It's a plesant listen, up until the cue Fishing, which could pass for horses being ridden over an open landscape on a wide screen.

Folk's score reminds me of a score he did for a Disney TV movie a year earlier, called "Ask Max" -- it sounds very similar. You can almost hear this score's main title trying to break out into it, and another cue begins the same. Only without the electric guitar. The Disney one had a similar plot, about a nerdy kid. It's a catchy little score, hopefully Intrada will consider it, too.

-------------------
I bought Slipstream from SAE, a legitimate retailer and paid good money for it. If there are issues regarding it's legitimacy, well that's too bad. I just play it and enjoy it.

What?!? another two 80s scores that wont move? How dare they! I have to admit the samples are good and I don't mind the funky bass playing. It is extremely feel good Disney'ish stuff and IMO Newman and Folk know how to write in that style. Good pairing.

Oh, and I never owned the sandal.

I was waiting to see when someone would say something. My University gave us a program where we can check our sentences in English (Thank you WhiteSmoke). This has helped, but sometimes it is still incorrect. It has messed up some power point presentations for my students, but it works better than the free ones online. This would even help Yor.

@ Burk - I also only post in threads where I like the composer or score. I like Folk's scores. Well, most of them. Did I post anything in the REVENGE thread? No, I do not know anything about the score or show. There are more requested scores that could be released. I bet we will find this release on the OOP list in a few months, like THE FORGOTTEN.

I like both of these 80s titles, and will pick it up. But I cannot help to think there are several other more important releases that should have come before it, like Hocus Pocus or Captain Ron and yes the other obvious one's like Mulan, Lion King, etc. Or even other titles from the same composers... The Mighty Ducks or The Neverending Story II. A Toy Soldiers reissue would be welcome too.

I really don't know how Intrada decides what to focus on. I think they act more on personal desires than what fans are shouting for. Like Revenge.... were a lot of people really asking for Revenge? I didn't really see it, but I sure saw Roger or Doug talking how much they love it. Definitely you have to like the stuff you work on, but at the same time you have a customer base who are actually the one's paying for and funding you to think more about.

That's my main complaint about the Varese club (if that still exists). I'm sure favoritism on behalf of intrada is part of their choice of titles, but I'm also sure that they spread the big titles in their release shedule as to give scores like this a chance to get noticed.

Yep, I'm sure there are all kinds of strategies regarding how to release titles, including the one you mention. I also sometimes think of it like college football schedules which are made a year or two (or more) in advance. And then I'm sure some titles drop in their laps unexpectedly with little or no red tape so they just go ahead and them done. And still again, I'm sure there are titles that end up taking years and years to secure and they feel lucky to finally release them, *whenever* that is. So with all of those things in mind, there's no doubt schedules are set and re-set on a fairly consistent basis.

There's three things you're missing.
1) Who says they AREN'T focusing on those 'more important' scores you mention? It's been said many times here, but releasing a score takes a lot of time, and one score might take years longer and another. Intrada has to [bold]MAKE MONEY[/bold] so they can afford to stay in business. They can't just hold off certain ones because more people may want something else they are working on

2) Something like Revenge is almost surely for fans of the TV show which of course isn't necessarily those who normally buy film scores, or at least not on the level most people here do.

3) There's nothing wrong with a label, especially one that publishes things themselves, in releasing what they want. I think by now Intrada has QUITE a good idea what they can release and know if they'll be able to make money with it. Yes they have a customer base to think about, but said customer base isn't entitled to anything until they part with their money and buy product.

I don't know if this is the case with Revenge or not, but in some cases it's just part of the contract: to keep a studio happy (and its vaults open), they also need to release some of that studio's new releases as well. And of course they will always talk up their products, regardless of whether the project is a practical necessity or a labor of love.

Well, I'm addicted to Revenge, and knowing there was going to be a CD, starting listening to the cues more intently during season 2. All the moments I thought were stand-out seem, going by track titles, to be on the CD, so I'm very happy with this release. I may be in the minority among Intrada's usual customers (at least the ones active on the forums - there are probably hundreds who never sign up to these) but I do exist!
