This is a comments thread about FSM CD: None But the Brave

This one, Black Sunday, and Midway are going to be my Williams purchases for next month.

I've never cared for MIDWAY, neither film nor score. Lots of droney suspense cues in the lower register (except for the two marches -- well, one march and one that is called a march, but doesn't sound like it). Both BLACK SUNDAY and NONE BUT THE BRAVE are a thousand times better, IMO. Just as a heads-up.

Hi Thor! I've gotten several rather negative reviews about Midway, and I appreciate the input a LOT. There are other great JW scores for me to get first.

I agree with Thor re: the merits of Midway vs. the other two.

NBTB and BS then. Oh, off topic but I just ordered the FSM Logan's Run, really psyched!

In that case, WA, when you get to the very last, lovely track, End Of The City, listen carefully. I'm absolutely sure JG was channelling Alex North's Unchained. In the movie, Logan and Jessica are surely betrothed, having freed the 'slaves' from mechanical Pharaoh. Just listen to the strings and general progression. Then there's a sudden change of tack with three quick percussion beats and the whole thing elevates to a triumphant conclusion - corny it ain't.

I disagree that Midway is some sort of halfway house. The marches are important military statements that must have some grounding from Williams' time spent in the service.

One more MIDWAY note....I'd say it's good but in the bigger JW picture, it's one for "I've exhausted everything major and need to hear something more!"
So when you get there....there's that smile
LOGAN on the other hand IS major.

I just now finally placed an order for this... I hope I'm not making a mistake, given what one of you said about the sound quality of some of the last tracks.

A very good early Williams worth purchasing.

Oh it's DEFINITELY NOT Williams' music I'm concerned about... it's the sound quality!

I remember thinking the sound quality for the score proper was very good, though I don't recall if some of the bonus tracks were more disappointing (but who cares? they're BONUS tracks!)
