I do recall somebody mentioning that McCarthy was very unhappy with the way the score was mixed.

I'm sure you're all aware there's lots of (free) software available to boost the gain on your audio extractions.

The problem with Generations is the excessively steep dynamic range employed on some of the cues - which will have you rapidly backing down on the volume in certain passages. Of course, this can also be compensated for with the right software.

^I sure would've loved them to put out a better quality mix so's I wouldn't have to go through all the trouble.

Agreed! Let's hope a new release is on the cards.

Re: Star Trek: FC complete score is out!

I always thought the 'Generations' and 'Insurrection' scores were pretty underrated. 'Generations' was some of McCarthy's best work in a while, and 'Insurrection' has some action material I've always liked.

Re: Star Trek: FC complete score is out!

McCarthy's work for Star Trek: Generations isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, but it's still one of the weakest scores in the series, if not the weakest. Still, it would be nice to have a complete score out there (along with the excellent liner notes that have accompanied the expanded scores for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8 so far).

Actually, my biggest gripe with the expanded version of Star Trek: First Contact, which I received on Friday, is that half of the liner notes are only available via PDF. I can understand why the extensive liner notes of the amazing Ron Jones set were PDF-only, but I don't understand why GNP Crescendo was unable to add a few extra pages to the CD booklet.

Where did you order yours from? I ordered mine direct from Crescendo on April 3, but it hasn't shipped yet...

Re: Star Trek: FC complete score is out!

I got my FC album the other day also. I haven't had a chance to listen to all of it yet, but I have loved every second so far. I didn't realize more notes were available online.

That's a lot of good music that is not present on the album. Did I miss anything?

Aside from the already mentioned evacuation sequence, I'm also thinking of
  • The first scenes onboard the Enterprise-B where Kirk is introduced to Demora.
  • the first Nexus scene with Kirk ("I gave that clock to Bones").
  • I also think the version of The Final Fight on the album is not the one we got in the movie with the revised ending.
The end credits are the first track on the album ("Overture").

Direct from GNP when they announced it -- but I'm in LA so shipping may have been faster for that reason.

Yeah, I ordered mine on April 3rd and I'm still waiting too. Slow shipment up to Seattle area? I was hoping to get it by now. Intrada and LALA Land ship quicker.

Re: Star Trek: FC complete score is out!

It looks like they've been putting updates on the store page - they got up through order #203 on Friday, and #425 today.

I'm number 629, so if I'm lucky it'll ship on Thursday, 9 days after ordering. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Quest soundtrack I ordered from La-La Land less than three hours ago has already shipped...

Re: Star Trek: FC complete score is out!

ATimson, you and I are on the same wavelength. I just ordered Galaxy Quest as well. They'll probably both get to my house at the same time!

I just logged onto Crescendo and saw their backorder. Wow! I think mine will ship on Thursday as well. My order # is about 50 less than yours in the 570's.

I got my FC album already, and love it. I'm excited to get Galaxy Quest as well, as I've been waiting a long, long time for that soundtrack!
