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.

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



F**********CK!!!!!!!

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

Mondo is releasing this in conjunction with Hollywood Records, who released the original album.

It's so odd what they decide to care about. It's like dealing with a very rich child.

Businesses follow trends. They think vinyl is all the rage =$$$$$$. They probably don't even look into the numbers.

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!


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.


yes Id prefer a CD as although I kept my vinyl collection I had from the 80s/90s,some of my first LPs were movie soundtracks, I havent had a record player for years, but as MI2 is one of my favourite Zimmer scores, the pieces with Lisa Gerrard are up there with Gladiator,and has been crying out for an expanded release, so yeah Ill buy it and work out how to play it later.

I recommend this as an affordable buy. I got great use out of it while living by myself (upgraded to my GF's turntable she inherited from her father when we moved in together) and I keep it in our shared office but rarely use it anymore. They have new color options available too!

When I think about, I think the big difference between sticking with CDs and/or digital versus being a vinyl collector boil down to "how do you like to listen to music?" CD and digital collectors might prefer the option to skip tracks or create streamlined playlists. Vinyl listeners enjoy throwing the record on and letting it play through, exercising our legs to flip the album or put on the 2nd disc. Music and the experience of listening to it is different for everyone.

Hopefully LLL or Intrada will be able to release this as a compact disc for those collectors in the future. Clearly Hollywood Records went to the highest bidder and that sucks it wasn't our dear friends and compatriots at La La Land but the people at Mondo are just as reverent for classic scores.

This makes zero sense to me. Lps are nice when you want to sit for an hour and listen to the record player but most of us don’t listen to music that way. Wether it is on a commute, ear pods or in the car lps are just not conducive to listening in this day and age in my opinion. Would have bet money that this was imminent from Lala. So disappointed that it’s not. Grrr.

When I think about it, the big difference between CDs and/or digital versus LPs, is clean sounding music vs annoying background crackling.

I might get it with older recordings, some might have grown up with the distinct LP sound, and like to revisit the good old days. But for a modern, digital recording, why destroy it with an old out-dated format which lowers the sound quality ?

At least offer a digital format as well, maybe as a bonus when you purchase the LPs. Then you get the physical sale, and people who don't own a LP player, or like to hear the music as intended (i.e. without added background noise), can enjoy it as well.

The only vinyls I have heard that feature distinct pops and crackles are those which I bought used and were mishandled at some point between prior owners or a storefront. A new pressed vinyl has incredible sound and dynamic range; and they are relatively easy to store correctly and clean. I wouldn't be able to count the amount of used CDs I've found littered with scratches that render them not much different than the experience you are describing here. So, this comparison seems a bit tone deaf. Again, stop shaming the collecting habits of others.

You and everyone else knows that a kind Samaritan will rip this vinyl album to a digital copy and you will all download that and eventually at a point in the future there will be a CD release. And you can buy that and it won't bother me in the least. Because I get that that is what you want to collect.

I like this comic. It really spoke to me about the subject of Vinyl.

I get the point from a collecting point of view about physical formats such as LPs.

But regardless of how "incredible sound and dynamic range" a LP has, Personally, I would prefer even a 128k mp3 from a digital source than a LP rip.
