Hi folks,

I really must take exception to this particular post for a number of reasons. I've been visiting filmtracks now and posting regularly since the age of seventeen - I'm nineteen now. I can't help but feel that this "you're an idiot, therefore you must be young" attitude is unfair. If the guy is making stupid statements, that's because he's either stupid or he has nothing better to say. It's not because he's young - and you don't know that he is even that! It occurs to me that comments such as those are nothing but cheap swipes - indicative that the author of said comment has no constructive comment to make and therefore resorts to childish mud-slinging and name-calling. If you want to give us a lesson on maturity, perhaps you ought to assess your own first, before handing down your great gospel to us lower mortals!

Goldsmith devotees come in all shapes and sizes. Likewise, the religious Horner fan can be found anywhere. It comes down to a simple case of personal preference. I wasn't born when Star Trek II came out - but does that make me any less qualified to make a statement concerning the score - indeed does it make my opinion any less valid?

Personally, I loved Star Trek II's score - despite not being a particular fan of Horner. Goldsmith does it Goldsmith's way, Horner does it Horner's way. Both were completely different and yet entirely appropriate for their respective motion pictures.

It's just a pity about the sound quality... the orchestral performance is mostly excellent (taking into consideration the obvious budget-related cuts) but the recording is sub-par, and that's putting it lightly. This score is definitely in need of a re-release, and furthermore a bit of digital remastering wouldn't go amiss either.


Regards, Dan
