Btw Graham, if (when) you order it from LLL, their packages usually arrive within a ridiculously short space of time. I've had a package sent by them on a Tuesday arrive in my porch on the Friday after. THREE FRICKIN' DAYS!!
Oh, and you will be able to use all the bubble wrap they provide to make a hammock in your vineyard (between those two trees by the babbling brook) and swing away to the sounds of Beverly D'Angelo pleasuring herself.

Ha ha! I was just wondering how long I'd have to wait! I ordered it yesterday, and when it said, "Allow up to six weeks for international orders before you start perstering us", I imagined it turning up at the end of June. Now that the nice weather's arrived, I've already set up the hammock, but it does need some more bubble wrap for the full Beverly D experience. "Pleasuring herself!" - I must be some kind of sheltered FSM weirdo, but that's only the second time in my long life that I've heard that expression. The first was in the liner notes of THE REINCARNATION OF PETER PROUD, talking about Margot Kidder in the bath, having what I always knew as "fiddling around in the downstairs department".

Please yourself.

You don't travel in the right circles (that's what she said).

What an awesome customer service by LLL.
Ordered Sentinel score today and got shipping notification...wait for it...today.


MD, I see from your profile that you're in the "EU"... Does that mean European Union or Estados Unidos? The questions don't get much dumber than that, but I'll at least tell you why I'm asking -

I'm too old and staid to get excited about pretty much anything nowadays, but I'm making an exception for THE SENTINEL. I stopped ordering direct from the US about ten years ago, instead just pre-ordering from European stores and waiting weeks or sometimes months for the goods. But I was in no hurry, and although it seemed that it would work out cheaper ordering from the US, at least when ordering from within Europe I knew I wouldn't have additional import charges and bollox like that. So I just sat patiently.

But when you mentioned the "awesome customer service", I thought "Bugger this waiting. It's Gil freakin' Mellé and it's the flippin' Sentinel, man!", and so I am rethinking my stance today. Shall I order direct from LLL? Or shall I not? These are the burning questions which keep the FSM Board at the cutting edge.

One further question - I did send an email or something to LLL, but I think I did it wrongly and it went into the void - The shipping and handling charges are quite clear on their site, but are there any additional charges which appear as optional just when you're about to submit your order? That's what stopped me ordering from SAE, the "50 dollars insurance charge, or no replacements in case of loss".

This was specifically for MD, but anyone within the EU (if that's the European Union, ie France, Spain, Germany, Italy... there might be more) is free to help me with my queries. Even comments from the Estados Unidos, why not? Hang on, I'm forgetting somebody - Mr (Member) in France. Number 1 Gil Mellé fan (it's not me after all). How are you ordering this, Member? Or is it classified information?


Hello Graham,
I am from European Unionsmile.
Shipping charge for registered airmail (which is really quick) was acceptable and with total price 31 EUR there is strong chance that this package will not be caught by our great customs service smile.
Also shipping charge for single CD is from 5-10 EUR from almost all European soundtrack retailer + with price of 23-25 EUR of actual CD it is almost the same like ordering it from US - only difference is probably delivery time.
And after hearing this suite for several months I must ordered this great CD it immediatelysmile

Thanks MD! I've already ordered it, so it's 'too late now'!

Glad you like the suite from THE LAST CHASE, but in my opinion it isn't anywhere near as interesting as the music for THE SENTINEL.

I never usually post this kind of stuff, but I think it's relevant in light of Kev's and MD's recent comments - MY ORDER HAS BEEN SHIPPED!!!

I just wanted you to know that. And kudos to LLL of course.

Listened to The Sentinel today. Superb! The creativity and energy of the music makes my normal aversion to electronics/synth content irrelevant – everything here seems perfectly judged and essential to the quality of the whole. I find this blend of orchestral and electronics constantly intriguing. Fine sound too, just right for the tonal characteristics of the score. Top marks.

Glad it gets the thums up from you, Razzle. Really looking forward to my copy arriving, hopefully this week. I've been waiting 42 years for this - surely some mess-up with Her Majesty's Banana Republic Postal Service.

Shall I rabbit here or on the other thread where there is only a Sentinel, and no mention of Bear?

This is the bubble wrap thread. My "serious" comments are on the other one. I got my copy today. Ordered last Thursday, and there was a weekend in the middle. An enormous cardboard box full of stacks and stacks of bubble wrap, with five CDs in the middle, like a Christmas present joke. Wonderful! La-La-Land's great! As you said, Kev. I'm on my hammock now. Balmy evening (barmy?), the bubble wrap cushioning my ancient, aching body, Gil Mellé's phenomenal score playing once more, and when he does that "rubbed cymbal" effect for Beverly D'A going cross-eyed after her rummage around in the downstairs department, I'm reminded of the affair I had with her when I was 7 years old and she seemed 125. Did I ever tell you about that?

But enough of this nonsense, although it's all true. I got THE SENTINEL today and it's bloody great I tell ya!
