More people should be talking about this score. It's a really nice one, solid themes, some great choir moments and action. Plus - it brings back one of the really old-school samples from the Media Ventures days. Check out "Operation Christmas" at 1:26 or so...been a while since we last heard that synthy flammy drum sample. Awesome to have it back :D
Well it's good enough to have an FYC promo...
Speaking of FYC, there are about 40+ tracks from this score on Sony's FYC website.
Very nice, thanks for the heads-up. Gonna rip em
I loved this score from the beginning! Your absolutely right Edmund Meinerts...it deserves more credit!
Yes the choir IS good. Not credited anywhere but I can reliably tell you it was Apollo Voices. I know this because I booked the singers!
Have just watched it on TV and am delighted to see that Apollo Voices is credited on the film credits but it doesn't seem to be on IMDB.com
Does anyone know if the IMPORT version offered on amazon is a pressed CD or a CD-R as well?
Does anyone know? I wanted to know too....Thanks!
Generally, the import versions are pressed CD's. If amazon states it's a CD-r, it is one, in all other cases it's a pressed CD. Recording companies like Watertower release mostly CD-r. In Europe, these get released through Sony, and they press CD's.
Compare, for example: Nightmare on Elmstreet import (Sony) and US release (Water Tower).
Hi Adrian! Thank you so much! I will remember that now :)
