It's a secret plot. Once it was in Norway, Thor got it and told them to send a dummy package to Istanbul.

And this was a signed copy as well!

Really hope Istanbul returns my package! Lol!

Istanbul seems like a sage and trustworthy place. Just make sure your package isn't ticking when you get it.

I'm sure Thor would forward the CD. Not, however, before whittling it down to a 40-minute program smile.

Curious how you can talk about the sound quality when you cannot possibly have a copy yet.


Lots of folks have already received the CDs a few days ago, see the La-La's Twitter as they repost many real photos. cool


Interesting that you imply you have a copy when right above this you post that you got a shipping confirmation from MBR.

I suspect you heard this off an illegal share site and tried to deflect when I called you out on it.

Today I was playing CD 1 of the new LLL Top Gun soundtrack in the car as I was out and about.

Verdict: I really like it! I find it holds up better than the Scarface score (which I can never listen to beyond the first 25 minutes because I find it too monotonous).

Early this morning I noticed that the "Jaws" 2CD soundtrack was back for sale on the Intrada website so I grabbed a copy. I can't wait for that one!

Well, unlike most cheapskate file sharers, at least he (apparently) actually purchased a copy of the physical product.

Nowhere did I write that I have. My buddy received an autographed copy directly from La-La earlier, and has a much more expensive Hi-Fi set-up in home. So I know about the sound quality of this release, because I had the opportunity to hear it on expensive equipment. I will pass over in silence the statement that someone can judge sound quality by illegal mp3s from the internet. I'm not deaf to do so. If you have any idea about Hi-Fi equipment, and I do, then further discussion only has a point...

t. I will pass over in silence the statement that someone can judge sound quality by illegal mp3s from the internet.

What a very ignorant sentence.

No. If someone can't hear the difference between a compressed mp3 file and an original CD-Audio (not CD-R) listened to on a good Hi-Fi equipment, then we have nothing to discuss, because it's a waste of my time.

You are a waste of our time.

Well there's four things wrong.

First you're assuming that any pirate copy is in Mp3 and not lossless, which is laughable.
You're also assuming that if it IS Mp3 the quality is bad, which hasn't really been true for 20 years for those who know how to encode properly. The difference between a 320 or V0 Mp3 and lossless is pretty small and while it's potentially possible to tell, the sound quality as a whole isn't degraded and the difference is very small.
Thirdly you seem to imply that digital files can't be listened to on Hi-Fi equipment, which is also laughable.

And as a bonus, you seem to not even consider the fact that a CDR is going to sound exactly the same as a CD since the data is, after all, 100% the same.

I have been waiting for someone to post something regarding track number #20…

Which is on the first CD presentation — (CD #1).

· Mav Is Launched / Mav Bugs Out / Mav Returns To Battle / Return To Carrier.

Can somebody please clarify — if there is supposed to be this tiny disturbance / a glitch / absence of music… within this cue?

The way in which I hear – (and see) – the music track… is also identical in the uploaded You Tube video… LINK PROVIDED: —

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJ9h1q957iw



At first; I thought that my CD might have an error — (you know; a glitch) —however; when I heard the same disturbance in the You Tube Video; then — I am not so convinced that it is an error… because it is uploaded?
Is it meant to be official?

· If You Upload the music track in Audacity… You will see — (which is what I meant by visual stimulation) — that there is a complete silent gap between:

· 06:40:20 — 06:40:30

It happens within — LESS THAN A SECOND — I picked it up on my first listening experience.

I was enthralled with the cues which have never been available… UNTIL NOW!

Until suddenly; I was taken back to reality; when that glitch had suddenly occurred… (I played the cue again; because I thought that maybe it is my equipment)… Obviously it isn’t; because you can hear it in the You Tube Link I provided…

So in conclusion; the reason for this post is to ask… Does anyone out there have the CD – without that silent gap; which happens around the 06:40 mark… on track number #20 — (CD: #1).

And also; maybe someone can clarify; that it could be a possibility; that Harold Faltermeyer composed it that way? Maybe due to an explosion heard in the film – (who knows?)

If so; then that is fine with me; but if not…

· Can somebody please rectify the issue?

That is all.

If I was able to post pictures on these forums; I would gladly show you the screenshot in Audacity… but I am not that talented… so if anyone would like to check it out; you are welcome to…

Basically; have a look at the 06:40 mark of the track.

Thank You!

There is no glitch on the master or the cds.

Could you people please stop judging our legally licensed and professionally produced product by listening to what some scumbag put up ILLEGALLY on youtube?

Thank you

This score is a wonder. And this release enables a type of critical listen previously unavailable. For the first time in YEARS, I burned a CD. A complete and chronological compilation of all the tracks on both discs. Merging the songs in lets the score breath and most importantly let me appreciate exactly how Harold was operating. As far as I can recall, incorporating instrumental versions of hit songs in to a score is not how this is ever been done. But Harold, seemingly without ego, uses Danger Zone, Mighty Wings and others wherever it seems he thinks he couldn’t have done any better. Like John Barry using a Bond song as the basis for the themes in the score, Harold does this with multiple song written by other people. Some might say this is lazy but to me it screams that Faltermeyer had little ego and only wanted to do what would work best in the film.

Doing this is something I was considering too for the same reasons. I don’t suppose you would mind posting the order of the tracks?
