It's not a theremin, it's an Ondes Martenot.

Well, by that same token, you could argue that having music in a movie at all is a cheap copout, because what does film music do but tell the audience what they should be feeling?

Actually LaLaland Records did Star Trek V.  And Intrada released 4 and 6. 

I might have to get the First Contact release, though I already have the bootleg version.

I have complete versions of all of Goldsmith's Trek scores, in forms of varying degrees of legality.  V is my favorite of the bunch.  The one I'd be most interested in having a 100% legal version of would be Insurrection, because the bootleg I have doesn't have the film version of the ending music.  Well, it has it, but it was obviously ripped from the DVD audio, because you can hear sound effects and faint echoes of dialogue.  I presume an official release would include a dialogue and sound effects-free version of that.

I'm curious, Imrahil.  Given your apparent disdain for electronic sounds in orchestral scores, how do you feel about the score to Short Circuit?  Sure it has a lot of synthesizer in it, but given the fact that it's a movie about a robot becoming self-aware and developing a respect for living things while fighting for its own survival, don't you think having a synthesizer prominently placed in the score is appropriate?

I LOVED the Galaxy Quest score, and this expanded version is totally unexpected. The trio of composers for the second release are the team Shirley Walker gathered to help her with Batman: The Animated Series - the show that started my loved with not only scores, but also animation in general. Along with Shirley Walker, those three composers helped define my love for orchestral music when I was young. I already have the Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo score from the trio that La-La Land released, and it's fantastic. I didn't even know they'd done a movie score. I cannot wait to hear this.

...Sad news:

http://filmmusicreporter.com/2012/04/30/joel-goldsmith-1957-2012/

Quote
Joel Goldsmith has passed away at age 54. The composer was born on November 19, 1957.

To connect him to our community, the man started out by co-composing Laserblast with Richard Band. And survived that to go on scoring the Stargate TV series and many other projects. Sad to see him gone so young.

So the Prometheus score got released early on Itunes - and it's actually not bad, especially coming from Marc Streitenfeld. Mostly orchestral tracks that balance some melody and the ambient suspense needed for the type of movie, with the expected string clusters and such for the more outright terrifying moments - plus two "positive" mood cues by Harry Gregson-Williams that complement Streitenfeld's material perfectly.  There's even a direct quote of Goldsmith's Alien music at the start of one track, along with the rest of the score being peppered with more subtle homages to the previous Alien scores.

It's not on the level of the previous Alien scores, and it might be a chore for some to listen to it on album,  but it's far better than I expected it be when I heard Streitenfeld was composing it, and it should suit the movie very well.

A few weeks back, the movie podcast Battleship Pretension did 2 back to back episodes about movie scores.

One was about the career of Carter Burwell, who has done a lot of movies, including many of the Coen's films and the second was about just some scores that they and their guest thought were pretty good.  I highly recommend them.

Here's a taste of what they play:

I wish the Blu-Ray for The Sting had an isolated score track.  Doing a quick comparison and I'd say the Blu-Ray sounds better than the CD, but the BD has all that pesky dialog and background sounds.

I'm planning to re-watch John Carter soon, didn't notice the soundtrack much the first time.  Going to watch it in 2D from now on since the 3D wasn't that great, I'll try to pay attention to the score this time.
