Vinyl has been all the rage since the hipsters first re-appropriated the medium some 10(?) years ago or so. Now it's pretty much mainstream again, and the preferred medium when regular folks are buying music in physical format.

still just a fad, it will drop dead, just a matter of time.
Vinyl is a product entirely built on nostalgia, no sonic advantages of any kind.

What an upside down world we live in right now, where an expanded score comes out on an antiquated flawed platform over a perfectly pristine platform geared towards the actual fan base.

I was surprised to see that Mondo is releasing the expanded/complete score for Mission: Impossible 2 on vinyl only. Does this mean we could see a CD version in the near future?

LLL got the other two M:I entries that Mondo released on vinyl so here's hoping they get this one too.


Same here! This will go nicely with Elfman's original score smile

Hoping this is on tap for June!

Are "regular folks" buying music in a physical format (or even digital format) any more? Although purely anecdotal, I am having a hard time thinking of anyone I know besides me and fellow film score fans who are buying music in any format. Everyone seems content with Amazon music, Apple music, or some other streaming service for their music needs. Whether a niche or a fad, someone seems to be buying vinyl, and if the recent trend does die, I don't know that anything will replace it.

Well, if you go to a Norwegian record store today (basically only one commercial chain remains, called Platekompaniet), you'll only find vinyls displayed, and various other 'deluxe' packages (in addition to books, films and other merchandise). There are regular CDs too, but tucked away in the back. In this day of streaming, you'll have to do something 'extra' with the music in order to sell it physically. That's why companies like Mondo thrive, with their lavish presentations.

I do find it somewhat amusing that Mondo's description of the movie reads as a series of backhanded compliments. I am surprised Paramount let them run with that. Pretty much any other promotional materials I have seen for any other soundtrack release either praises the movie (whether deserved or not) or simply focuses on how great the score was. Bottom line, the promotional material pretty much always stays positive about the film.

According to this article physical formats are outselling digital downloads, though streaming is 50% of the entire revenue now.

You guys are insanely anti-collector for being such collectors yourselves. It's one thing to prefer to own this score in CD because that is your preferred collection (or digital, etc) but a lot of audiophile collectors prefer vinyl and can break down the sound differences between a digital approximation of the sound waves that is featured on a CD versus the actual physical analog creation of the sound waves on a properly made vinyl record. And, all in, it's a preference.

I did away with my CD collection of over 3000 albums over a decade ago and haven't looked back. I maintain a really great digital collection across a couple of hard drives, but I have greatly enjoyed hunting for, buying, and collecting vinyl records of both vintage and new pressings. As an added bonus, my girlfriend (soon to be fiance) is also a music collector and we have amassed a really nice collection of our favorite albums and soundtracks; we have a really beautiful stereo sound setup composed with antique Mission 770s that I found at a flea market and cleaned up; and we enjoy Sunday listening parties where we grab a couple of random albums and read to each other and enjoy cooking food together.

Anyway, I am very excited for this release because this was my favorite score from 2000 and I have never grown tired of it. I can't wait to hear it in this new (old) format, and expanded to boot!

Kinda irks me. We tried to do this for years...even recently but got shot down even though we would sell two to three times as many units on cd. Studios just like vinyl. However we will still continue to fight the good fight.

That makes me wonder if these Mondo releases are legit then.

Yes to all of this! "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth."
Would I like to have this on CD? Yes, of course. Am I happy that it's available in ANY form? Also yes.

Ah crap...guess that answers THAT question. frown

I can't imagine what they were thinking! Considering the stellar job you've done on other Paramount Pictures movies. I know there's a couple that come to mind. Oh, what were they...? Oh! Yeah, that's right!

Mission: Impossible

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

smh
