I placed an order for The Happening score and The Dark Knight score through Amazon. I also can't wait, and will be waiting at the same time too. lol. I guess I'll just have the CD sitting on my desk for my starring pleasure until the 13th.

Thanks for the post Veena, finally, a slightly longer soundtrack from James Newton Howard for a Night film, I feel like those are his best works, but they only range from 30 minutes to 45 or 50 for Lady In The Water, but that had songs at the end.

Arrgh! The time between June 3rd and June 13th is going to be freaking intense, because I know I'll really want to listen to that soundtrack!

So you're not going to listen to it, I'm not sure yet.
Title: Re: The Happening CD score artwork released.
Post by: Veena on May 14, 2008, 06:22:02 PM
you really need to listen to it beforehand..... we heard many of the tracks just the other day and its very moving
Title: Re: The Happening CD score artwork released.
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on May 14, 2008, 06:23:37 PM
we can really wait.

we can really wait.

To see the trailer, movie and listen to the soundtrack!  YIKES!
Title: Re: The Happening CD score artwork released.
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on May 14, 2008, 07:58:02 PM
I'd rather watch the trailer then listen to the score before seeing the movie. The emotional impact of each cue would be diminished 1000% in my mind.

That's a good point Dr Malcom Crowe, plus the music will stick in your head, then you know the track titles, and you can, oh, I have a feeling of what's going to happen and it will ruin it.  I think I will wait, it shouldn't be har at all.

It's available at amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/Happening-Score-Various-Artists/dp/B0018Q7K76/mnightfans-20) now as well.

Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Happening-Score-Various-Artists/dp/B0018Q7K76/mnightfans-20) just dropped the price to $13.99. They are also offering a pre-order price protection guarantee that gives you the lowest price for the item from the time you pre-order it and the time it ships. So if the price drops anymore after you pre-order, you're safe.

I am going to be spending a lot of money on scores this summer!!  ;D

Yeah, that's why I don't like listening to scores ahead of time. I listened to the Lady score before I saw it and I had a pretty good idea of what was about to happen, especially at the end.

Yeah, I will also be spending a lot of money on soundtracks this summer.  Ooh, I think this is the first time James Newton Howard will have lots of cello in his soundtracks for Shyamalan.

Is there any way, we can listen to it online. I want to hear it before I buy it.

Not yet, but I am sure someone (probably SoundtrackNet) will post samples in a week or so.

I am definitely going to wait though. No point in ruining it. I know it will be good.

I always listen to scores before the movies come out if I'm really excited about it, and it's never caused me any let down yet.  I understand why some might avoid it, but it only enhances my anticipation, not detract from it.  It'll hopefully be in my CD player June 3rd!
Title: Re: The Happening CD score artwork released.
Post by: Mr_Glass.1 on May 17, 2008, 12:06:34 PM
I just think it could slightly spoil my anticipation, I pay close attention to musical cues in soundtracks and movies, so it could cause me to recognize something.
Title: Re: The Happening CD score artwork released.
Post by: Sanford on May 17, 2008, 05:33:48 PM
Yep, that's exactly how I feel about it.
Title: Re: The Happening CD score artwork released.

where I can hear samples of the soundtrack?
Title: Re: The Happening CD score artwork released.

Borders, Best Buy, and soundtrack.net all usually have samples, but I don't know when.

Hey guys, the CD is available on iTunes as of now. 

Its definitely a little different than his other scores, more like the Sixth Sense score than anything.  Or the really eerie tracks from The Village.  It sounds like it would be good with film accompanying it, but not so much for pure listening pleasure.  But then again, you only get to hear the :30 second samples.
