    Still good but you'll lose some vibe

    How is that?

    Soundtracks are about the only music I still buy with regularity on CD.

    1492 Conquest of Paradise - Vangelis - probably played the most of all of mine - haunting and dramatic in equal doses
    The Last Samurai - Hans Zimmer
    The Fountain - Clint Mansell

    ....

    There are plenty of others but this will do for a start.
    Just rewatched the movie "Pi" (π) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UHevOrvjnM

    much of the soundtrack is from Clint Mansell and it's very good. Esp liked
    "A Low Frequency Inversion Field" (not CM tho)

    IF you enjoy ST's , I think BH was The King of 'em

    The Kinks, Percy, 1971, Pye Germany, 200 732-241

    Totally underrated. The album was the soundtrack for a British comedy movie of the same name which tells the story of the man who receives the world's first penis transplant. Don't laugh! The album is still fascinating after all these years: the organ driven instrumental version of "Lola", turning into a furious jam session with horns and orchestra, conducted by famous soundtrack composer Stanley Myers. The following track is a beautiful ballad, sung by Ray Davies plus big orchestra and acoustic guitar. And then, unusual for the Kinks: "Completely" A4, a slow blues of first quality as the early Fleetwood Mac used to play, plus hammond and twin guitar solo. Fun! Side A ends with another fine ballad plus orchestra: "Moments" A6. Ray Davies is crooning. The highlight IMHO is "Just friends" B2. This is one of those albums that grow better and better after frequent listening. Listen!

    I'm not that big cineaste, in particular I don't enjoy blockbusters at all, but I have some few favourites: Philipp Glass' work for Koyaanisqatsi by Godfrey Reggio, and Ry Cooders' for Paris, Texas, by Win Wenders. Especially Koyaanisqatsi grasps me entirely and vitually takes me away when watching it.

    Best regards!

    Three big thumbs up on Koyaanisqatsi. I've always enjoyed that ST.

    Went to a record show a couple of years back , I only buy the $1 LP's. Dug through a box and found a pristine copy of Koy............ . Paid for it and seller didn't even know what it was that he was selling. Sounds even better than the digital version.

    On headphones it's phenomenal.
