This is a comments thread about FSM CD: King Kong: The Deluxe Edition (2CD)

Hope the muffled/watery/mono quality of the samples isn't reflective of the actual CD.




Are you listening on an iPhone or something? The samples sound great to me.

"He's-a look like real human being. This is the reason you cry at the end. Wee-men cry -- you know why?
Because-a Kong is-a capable to die for his wee-men."

I think any "watery" artifacts you might hear can be put down to the low bitrate of the mp3 samples. The discs sound as good as you'd imagine they would, coming from Messrs. Kendall, Bulk and Matessino.

Bear in mind, folks, that Lukas is NOT getting out of the soundtrack game altogether! The FSM label may be shutting down (and its unique style and aesthetic WILL be greatly missed), but Lukas has stated that he will continue to work with other labels. This last year alone has seen his name on important releases from LLL, Intrada, GNP, etc.

Yes, you're right. But I'm just not willing to comfortably and exclusively swish around the indelible sugars of those other delightful prospects, despite how sweet they may be. 'Film Score Monthly' is embedded in Lukas's DNA. He built this place, and I hate witnessing its death (the brand, that is). Sure--everything that steps foot from its genesis is set to run its final course, but just as well; each and every fan of whomever chooses to run from his most respected enterprise, must at least offer him a bottle of water before he's to hit the ground.

Even though I haven't heard the album yet, I'll love it, I'm betting everything I got on it!

Thanks to all involved.

Anthony, that came perilously close to poetry.

Me like.

It'll be nice to finally have this without the cheesy LP sound effects.

Dig the artwork on the cover. The samples sound great.

Presentation (alternate #2) is cool.
It sounds like a fight cue for a bond flick.
Actually it sounds a little like AirBase Jailbreak from The Living Daylights.
I'm in Heaven!

I'm so grateful for this release! Thanks Lukas and everyone else involved, this is a spectacular release and finally presents Barry's Kong score as it should be heard. The samples sound great, and I can't wait for my copy to arrive.

This is especially gratifying after Body Heat too, no more unfinished Kong business now.

Again, many, many thanks for this, the big one indeed!

A two-CD release of KING KONG? I got the old LP (with the poster), and that one was already really repetitive.

Then don't buy it.

It really makes me laugh when people go on a thread about a new release to tell everyone why they won't be buying it. As if anyone cares.

Leave it for those who like it and move on. No need to be obnoxious in the process.

Cheers

I was merely wondering whether there's any really NEW material that's not just a repetition of the stuff that was on the LP.

P.S.: If you only want nerdy/fan praise, I strongly suggest a JB fan-only(!) forum. wink

Why don't you listen to the samples and decide for yourself if you think it's too repetitive for you.

As for your second comment, I have no problem engaging in discussion about the merits of a score but your comment was just blowing a raspberry. And you know it was.

If you want to discuss King Kong, merits and demerits, I'm game for that. I think you know by now that I'm not blind to Barry's faults and limitations (all composers have them), I just also happen to really like his sound and I like this score very much. I find it successfully blends romance with mystery and it has high drama with gravitas. And it does all these things with strong themes and something sadly lacking from most modern film scores, a "thread", an over-arching idea that pulls it all together.

Cheers

Stephen, he's been doing this same things for many years. He's just looking for a response and indignation. It is best just to ignore him and carry on...

You're right, I didn't realize that SA were actually offering glimpses into every single track. From those snippets it seems most of the really "new" material is truly background and "faux" ethnic stuff.

Fanboys. Always so defensive. wink

Are you and RM Eastman in any way related because he tends to do the same thing...over and over and over and over again......whenever someone enjoys a composer that is NOT Jerry Goldsmith?
