Re: La-La Land Records Releasing a 3-CD Set of TNG Scores at Comic-Con

Yeah, I'm not sure we really need another release of TNG music. This CD is a great sampling of very good work, but an earlier poster said its pretty interchangeable, and I agree with that. The McCarthy season 1 episodes mentioned had great scores, but some of the cues are heard in other places (some the action cues from "Arsenal of Freedom" are lifted from "Encounter at Farpoint", for example). I do love Chattaway's score for "Power Play" (and it does heighten that great scene where Troi, Data, and O'Brien make their way to 10 Forward). But on a CD, I think it will sound a lot like "Darmok" or "Silicon Avatar." Chattaway used those same three notes over and over in different variations - not sure how much more of that I really need to have. I'm really ready for a DS9/Voyager release now!
