BEAR McCREARY AUTOGRAPHED CD EXCLUSIVE



“MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: REVELATION VOL. 2”
Music by Bear McCreary
RETAIL PRICE: $15.98

STARTS SHIPPING JULY 5


LA-LA LAND in collaboration with SPARKS AND SHADOWS is proud to exclusively offer autographed CD copies of the Second Volume of acclaimed composer Bear McCreary’s original score to the hit Netflix series MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: REVELATION!

(Regular, unsigned CDs available at Amazon.com starting July 8)

From the composer’s liner notes: “I hope that the resultant score is what I set out to achieve: a soaring, highly thematic work built first as a symphonic, orchestral piece, but one supported by an arsenal of percussion and a modern, propulsive, heavy metal rhythm section. This is not a retro score, nor a throwback to the 1980’s: I wrote this as a modern score, that just happened to draw inspiration from the themes and sounds of that era… Masters of the Universe: Revelation may very well be my most symphonic and simultaneously most metal work to date. I am grateful to everyone who put their trust in me, especially the brilliant Kevin Smith, whose inspiration and personal leadership made this one of the most rewarding creative experiences of my life – Bear McCreary”

MOTU is the grandest music McCreary has penned since Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Volume 2 CD release seems to be 9'40' longer than the digital release and of course it gets a Sparks&Shadows/ LLL treatment. But what about Volume One? Shouldn't someone on these labels do anything about it as well?

The first volume had a physical disc, a good quality CDR from "Mattel" . Not a pressed CD, true, but mine plays with no issues. I'm thrilled LLL is releasing Vol 2, it's fantastic stuff.

I am aware of it, my friend, but sadly, I refuse to pay even a single cent on CD-Rs. Let's hope someone will eventually release a factory pressed CD treatment in the likes of LLL or Sparks&Shadows. I totally agree, It really is such great stuff to be wasted on pricey yet cheaply produced CDRs...

A. Don't expect that to ever happen. It was a miracle Bear was able to get a Vol 2 cd out there.

B. Here is the crazy thing about cdr vs pressed discs...pennies. yes, that's right PENNIES. I just don't understand why companies don't spend the extra few cents to press up the cds. It's mind blowing.

Well, you guys just made my day with this. Ever since the digital release I've been hoping a disc would follow soon after. That For Eternia suite is mind blowing. I'm going to order this one - gonna order it hard - and then maybe again.

eek

Ive purchased plenty of CD-R's. I've burn plenty of CD-R's. Never had any problems with them. I don't see the big deal.

How many copies of this LLL got?

Hopefully it will be available for a while...

Is the CD release acually nine plus minutes longer than the Digital release? There seems to be no info or track duration provided on LLL website...

The track numbers appear equal. Perhaps it is just a typo in regards to album duration? 0 and 9 are right next to each other on the board after all. Perhaps Mr. LeBlanc will know all about this release as well.

I've always understood the master stamper (the glass that "presses" the discs) is expensive to produce. You would know better of course. Are they pretty inexpensive now?

I do not think it's a mistake LLL are very careful on their announcements. Maybe one or a few of the pre-existing tracks have been lengthened in duration, something that has happened before in digital to CD releases (i.e., Alan Silvestri's THE AVENGERS). That is what I hope, at least...

Well, the total time of the digital/streaming edition is 1:00:01, which you can see at any link below

The LLL website says the physical CD edition runs 69:40:

https://lalalandrecords.com/masters-of-the-universe-revelation-original-series-soundtrack-volume-2/

So I guess it's really almost 10 minutes longer?

I just received my CD and it's not any longer than the digital album. So must've just been a typo, a typo which is also on the album case. But it's indeed only 60 minutes long. Not that I'm complaining, just clarifying for everyone who was wondering. Still great to have the music on a pressed CD.

Ah that's a bummer!

I wonder why the LLL website says "Total Time: 69:40" then?

A simple typo, the 9 & 0 are side by side razz . The first volume was close to 80 minutes, sure, it would have been nice to have a bit more music, but as is, it's still a fantastic album. I didn't mind double dipping on this one, and love having both volumes on a physical disc. That For Eternia suite still knocks my socks off eek

Yes, it's a typo... It's 60', as in the digital release. But we are very happy to get a factory pressed physical release, after all. The music of the show is the best work of McCreary since Godzilla and Professor and the Madman.
