^ Also, the liner notes's author goes out of his way to describe how nice and wonderful Berman was about his criticism of McCarthy's music, and how he basically put on his best cologne and took him out to a sexy night downtown when he broke the news. Seemed a bit ridiculous, s'all.
I've listened to the complete set now (kudos to screenarchives.com for getting it to Germany in just four days), and here's the gist:
- CD 1 starts out very strong with Haven, the cue from The Big Goodbye is just wonderful - the rest is sonic wallpaper. Also, the track from All Good Things... was on one of the two best-of soundtracks a decade ago. Why waste disc space on pre-released material?
- CD 2 is boring.
- The Steiner and Davis scores are brilliant! (I always loved Davis's work on Beauty and the Beast, btw.) Debney is meh. The polka version of the TOS main theme is just too awesome for words.
