The sound in this release is superb. It's a raucous score, very entertaining.

I love this core and tossed my boot as soon as it hit my mailbox. It's funny. I know Rsoenman could be repetitive upon occasion alright, most fot he time with his dum dum dum dum and tone pyramids, but you what, they worked. I love 'em and would probably miss them if they weren't there. Now how about THE CAR and RACE WITH DEVIL???Race With The Devil, great score! I agree bring it out. Yeah, Rosenman loves those tone pyramids (me too), but how about those variations at the end of Prophecy and Fantastic Voyage. At the end of A Man Called Horse, it sounded as if he was building up another pyramid and surprise, flat.

Man this has some of the most aggressive music I've ever heard in a film score and I love it! Rosenman has really gone into hyper drive here with his usual virtuosic orchestral writing and dazzling orchestrations beefed up even more by the addition of the blaster beam.

Does anyone know the full list of the orchestral instruments employed? I'm asking because it sounds like he might be using the rarely used contrabass trombone which can sound very much like a "tuba with a growl".

I listened to a clip and it was awful scary, most darned scary music I did hear, and I did hear that Exorcist stuff. My imaginations with this has me cowering all about the place now. Those freaky bears could be anywhere.

I'm somewhat late but I wanted to say thanks to Lukas and FSM and express how much I've enjoyed this score.

The blaster beam riffs are just pure wicked and evil sounding compared to how Goldsmith employed them in TMP.

Getting a lot of play out of this baby. Makes me want to build a blaster beam and put it in the middle of my living room (it's 25 feet across). I'm sure my wife wouldn't mind...

Wow. Listening to it for the first time in its entirety, and this is a great score. Probably vastly becoming one of my favorite Rosenman scores.

Thank you, Lukas and gang, for releasing this.

CHATO'S LAND was my number one hard hitter ... but PROPHECY could well take that position now.

Here's another one just in, which I had put off getting due to... getting other things (or not getting anything). What a bloody great score! You can never mistake Rosenman, and I actually buy most of his stuff because it all sounds the same. And so this is another whoppingly great Rosenman treat! Love all that chattering, overlapping cacophony like in LORD OF THE RINGS, the obligatory tone pyramids etc... it's all so incredibly intense.

Most impressed also by the grandiose treatment of the "vast outdoors". That's just beautiful. And the Blaster Beam is pretty damn scary! It reminded me more of Rosenman's own "mind-zapping" effects in BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES than Goldsmith's use of it for ST:TMP. That's Rosenman for you. Always true to himself. 10 out of 10, brilliant. And fun too! A belated thanks to the FSM team for this.

Hi, Graham!

You've just woken up and smelled the lake chemicals! smile

Rosenman music is better late than never.
