I can't wait to hear the soundtrack, but I am not buying the vinyl or buying it from itunes. I get it that he works for apple, but having it exclusively on a specific service is just asking for your work to get pirated.

I'm unable to find it in several famous torrent sites that I'll not mention because I don't know if that's ok around here, all I see when I search for "Before The Flood" is a Bob Dylan album and a Dr Who episode.

I also don't have itunes on my computer/cellphone/tablet, I've never ever used it. And I'm not going to buy the vinyl because I don't have a player, I would buy the cd as soon as it was available, I've always bought cds and I own everything Trent has ever done that has been released in that format. So, reading the comments on this thread, I'm not sure which are the other options to get the digital album, that's why I asked for a pm, if I could find it in a torrent site I wouldn't have asked for it. ;)

OK A Minute Later just made me cry. I thought this was supposed to have an optimistic element?

For real, I listened to And When The Sky Was Opened like six times in a row when it came up my first time through. There's a reason TR's music has always reached so incredibly deep into my soul and this track reinforces that feat tenfold.

He and Atticus completely own this soundtrack. The compositions from Mogwai and Santaolalla solo are fine enough, but this whole thing is ultimately the Trentticus show from beginning to end..

I would love a CD release, can't afford the vinyl (at least not right now). So if anyone wants to send me a PM, I'll just spend the money that would have gone to a CD of this on another shirt next tour or something. One way or another, Trent always gets a significant portion of my income, lol.

So why has Trent announced this on Facebook but not Twitter? Why not all at the same time? Sometimes I find his promotional strategies a bit haphazard. Juno is still the latest thing on nin.com.

Got to listen to it last night thanks to a kind soul on here. Some GREAT moments on there - title track is textbook NIN/Reznor/Ross in particular, and I love Thin Ice Reimagined as well - was really hoping for drums towards the end of that song for some reason! One Perfect Moment sounds like Corona Radiata 2016 (not a bad thing in my book), and I think Disappearing Act sounds like it would've fit perfectly on Ghosts, so experimental. Only songs I didn't care for first time round were 8 Billion and Mogwai's Huaynaputina, I can see the latter being deleted quite quickly from my playlist for the album. But this'll definitely be on heavy rotation for a while. Good work from all involved.

One of my favorite moments is when Trent's sampled voice kicks in right around the 3:15 mark in "Before The Flood". He does that kind of thing pretty often, but somehow in this case it reminds me a lot of The Fragile era. Love it.

STOP ASKING FOR PM'S

I can't recall this forum ever condoning the widespread dissemination of official commercially-released material intended for purchase, so we're certainly not going to start now. I get that some of you haven't gotten your download link e-mails, or some of you have sads because it's not available on your favorite stream-a-ling-ding service, or some of you have money issues or geographic issues or whatever. I get it. That's just not an excuse for turning this forum into a piracy free-for-all. As someone said, this is 2016. There are plenty of other avenues available to you if you feel you must pursue that. Just not on this forum.

Any further requests for PM's will be met with shaming and then beatings.

I think I will wait a while, can't hurt to practice waiting in these instant times, right? :-)

I have my first Apple product only for some weeks, and after first music shopping (Juno) I discovered there is no way to actually store the file on my computer, maybe with iTunes but I am not going to install that on Windows (and share offers only listening link). I also don't use any streaming services (not interested), so maybe Google Play or rather something lossless somewhere, I can wait... :-)

Anyway, "A minute to breathe" is really great and it pops in my head randomly and I enjoy that, so I have something to look forward to. ;-)

Update: Tried to search Astra satellite EPG for "Flood" or "The Turning Point" or "Are We History?" or local "Je s nmi konec?" because it should be on some NatGeo channel on October 30th, not found yet.

I think the lack of information from official site could be an indication that they are still working on getting it online on other platforms. Otherwise they'd be like "Out now and exclusive for apple", right? Like - it doesn't make sense to have exclusives if you don't advertise them.

Right now the situation is frustrating. But they know that themselves I gues... Still, an official comment would be bigly appreciated. ;)

When you order the vinyl from nin.com, you have to also select if you want 320kbps MP3 or 24B/48kHz WAV download for your digital version. It's part of the checkout process.

They've done a poor job advertising the soundtrack all around, I think. I wouldn't doubt that the digital release is exclusive to iTunes and the vinyl orders the way it's been handled.

I totally agree, nothing against Trent and his work/collaboration with Apple music but it would be nice for it to be released on other Streaming services. I guess ill just have to wait.



I have to rant here... I find this totally crazy. I listened to this on Apple Music last night (I have a subscription to supplement some of the stuff not available on Spotify like this soundtrack) and liked it enough that I wanted to "purchase it." I had to spend 12.70 (after already spending 1.99 on A Minute to Breathe) to get this from iTunes (which I hate). They could at least give some information about if or when other options would be available. Now I will have to buy this again to get lossless if they make it available. I feel like I am forced to choose an expensive vinyl option I don't want or iTunes which I also don't want until it become available at some point. It is also irritating that this isn't on Spotify which is my preferred streaming medium. Sorry, I am just tired of purchasing the same music multiple times.

Perhaps you're missing the point here. That requires me buying a vinyl that I do not want. No thank you. I'm not paying $50+ just for a digital download and a vinyl I won't use.

An overpriced vinyl and a shitty iTunes copy as your choices... way to go, Trent.

No one is being spoiled, it's called the year 2016. If you can't simultaneously release an album in different formats, you're doing it wrong. Honestly, it seems more like Apple BS getting the exclusive and the rest of us have to wait. Apple is the worst company for Trent to team up with. They seem at complete odds with his ways. But corporate BS must give them an exclusive amount of time to be the only digital store at first. For Trent bitching about his album prices in different countries and for fans to steal his album, this kind of exclusive crap is not that far off. So it just seems hypocritical. In this day and age, you should have multiple formats ready to go on release day and none of this exclusive BS, especially when it comes to digital music. I can see delays with physical merch, but not digital. I literally can sign up with a company on my own who will put my release on every single digital outlet at the same time for a very small fee. If a small time indie artist like myself can do it, these big companies have no excuse. Hence why all countries coordinated release days to now all be on the same day of the week. Exclusivity promotes illegal downloading. This is a disservice to both the artist and the listener. This isn't coming just from a NIN fan, but a music lover who wants to see the industry thrive and do the right thing. Sadly, the industry is still working on an archaic format and hasn't seemed to learn from their mistakes, they just keep making all news ones.

I don't mind to be patient and wait for it to arrive on other platforms, but ever since the Fragile instrumental and the With Teeth instrumental albums STAYED Apple Music exclusives, I'm a little bit worried that it can happen with other content as well. Excuse me for being a little gun shy.

That Year Zero rant was ten years ago and Trent has seen a giant change in the industry since then. He's done plenty on his own to break out of the traditional music model and he's implied that he wasn't fond of it, so now he's going in a different direction with Apple. And, by the way, he also said to steal his music in that rant, as you mentioned, so why not just do that if you don't like what he's doing? It's not going to affect him. Just don't turn this thread into a "PM me the music I won't buy pls!!!!!!!!" shitshow.

I think this soundtrack is more interesting than the previous two. Gustavo adds a nice extra dimension to the tracks that he does with Trent and Atticus, and of course Mogwai's songs are lovely and fit in well with the rest of it. A Minute to Breathe being the second track made me think there might be more vocal tracks on the album, but I don't mind that there aren't. Feels to me like a more active listening experience than Dragon Tattoo and especially Gone Girl.

Nah. "Business" is getting in the way of art, which is the shameful thing. There is no other possible reason for this nonsense in the age of infinite distribution choices.

Shouldn't be a surprise that file sharing among fans is a thing when things are in limited release, even if this turns out to be timed.

We're kind of in a soft release period. People need to calm the hell down. I'm considering my digital download to be a bonus early version for preordering the vinyl. If a CD version comes out later, I'll buy that as well.

And if anyone thinks I'm going to PM them a 1.5gb file because they feel entitled...they're wrong. It's not like this is some limited release that's difficult to get... There's a HUGE difference in sharing some difficult to find limited or not officially released 20 year old remix and sharing something that you could go pay for from the artist directly and have immediately.

Just because we're in a mostly digital age that typically grants us many options doesn't mean we get to act like spoiled brats when things don't go our way. If you don't want to pay to get it now, hold your horses until the soundtrack is actually physically released and see if there's different options at that time.

Either way, definitely some weird ass marketing...

"if you're not happy with appoule exclusive, just wait" LOL yeah, that's the world of music where we are living... I love your ridiculous appoule way of thinking. As i say I am paying for that piece of crap monthly appoule mousic, so i can stream the shit, the only thing is I dont want to. I could of course record the stupid stream, but why would I loose my time when somebody else did ? The shared copy is 256kbps so I assume it is a stream record. Now ... be ashamed ? We should be proud that we havent shared a lossless version, or put it on torrent (yet). THAT is closer to the world of music where we are living.
PS: I will buy any cd, lossless, or even vinyl, probably all of them, but just not like this.

Didn't mean to click like on this post. It seems perfectly reasonable, I think, to simultaneously release an album on the most popular streaming services, and to not do it would appear to be counter-productive to the nature of releasing music - reaching as much of your target audience as possible - and to a certain extent - divisive. While there are other, less legal, ways of getting the music, not everyone wants to risk getting computer viruses or malware, just to get music.

The thing is ... they're not communicating whether there will be any other release, like a CD. Or like a digital only lossless release directly from nin.com (which people would definitely be fine with). That's where the biggest fuck-up happens if you ask me. Put it on Apple Music/iTunes only, say NOTHING, and everyone will loose their minds. And you can't expect your fans to buy a fucking (and very pricey) vinyl if they just want lossless audio files. That's just a shitty way to distribute your music.

I'm not the one who's bitching here but people do have a point in my opinion. It's just that I don't care right now. I'm going to wait and see if there will be a release that will fit my needs.

Have you guys considered the main trouble for Before The Flood team is the movie doesn't flop, they have to worry if there's profit from theaters?
After that, depending on profits, they might think of wider than itewnz OST release. I checked local cinema schedule, they don't show this movie.
I'm sure the vinyl was entirely Trent's idea just to treat the rabid 0,1% of his fandom in this case. (i'd buy a CD later, but i'm not holding my breath right now).

I'm sure the vinyl was entirely Trent's idea just to treat the rabid 0,1% of his fandom in this case. (i'd buy a CD later, but i'm not holding my breath right now).

Actually I am even wondering about the profit of this movie, will they redistribute to some "environmental cause" ? I didn't hear about it. Or maybe it's a "not-for-profit" movie.

Concerning the "PM" problem, I am ok with the Apple Music distribution, because I'm on it and for now it's enough, but I can totally understand the frustration of not having better quality files, especially when we bought the vinyl on the UK store (because yes, we still don't have the link for the download !). I would feel excluded being a huge fan who put loads of money on his work...

Anyway great OST, for me the best Trenticcus work so far (maybe because it's not only Trenticcus !)

I can definitely see how the lack of communication and distribution options can be frustrating. This project has been that way from the beginning. Reznor usually goes out of his way to make his music easily available to those of us who want to hear it. But when this ST was announced, there wasn't any other info. Just that it was happening. The only way to hear it was to go to a screening. I thought this was bizarre that my favorite artist has music out there somewhere and I can't hear it immediately and no info on when I could expect to hear it.

Don't forget: Trent himself was the one who said to steal YZ, when the label was doing dumb label things with that release. Now, whatever the source of the problem, dumb things are happening with this release. Expect complaining, because even he did about his own fucking release back then.

Don't know how to describe what I feel when listening to At Dusk. Takes my mind to a whole different place. So dreamy, almost otherworldly.

I can't decide which one I find better, At Dusk or Before The Flood. To me they are both the best TRAR have done in a long time. Nothing on their previous scores compares to the emotional weight of those songs.

While there are other, less legal, ways of getting the music, not everyone wants to risk getting computer viruses or malware, just to get music.

then you're doing the internet wrong. There is zero chance of getting a virus when d/l'ing a music release these days if you read how to do it first for literally 5 minutes.

Back to talking about the score....

There are some real stand out tracks on it. But I still feel 'Minute to Breathe' is easily the best track. And I say that after a dozen or so listens. The score as a whole doesn't feel cohesive to me. The Mogwai tracks just seem... blah. Particularly the final track. It seems odd that they chose to dilute the score like that.

Perhaps the reason TR hasn't marketed or made this score easily available is because he simply isn't that proud of it.

He should be. I agree that Mogwai didn't do their best job (I like their old stuff a lot, but their last few albums weren't that great either) but that shouldn't be of Trent's concern. Again, I'm repeating myself, but I think TRAR + Santaolalla delivered something truly great here. And I would be very much surprised if Trent and Atticus weren't proud of that.

The situations are not even remotely comparable. Trent told Australians to steal YZ because the Aussie label was artificially inflating the price. The same product was available every else for a fair price, but not AUS. Is that what's happening here? No. It's released on iTunes, for (roughly) the same price for everyone. If you don't like iTunes, or M4A/AAC, fine. I'm no iTunes fan either. But that's a personal beef, not evil labels gouging you.

It's only been about 72 hours since the release. There's no reason to think this won't get wider availability given a bit more time. Maybe Trent has given Apple exclusivity because he works for them now. Sucks if so, but that's his call. I think it's at least as likely that there's just a hold up on other distribution channels because of some legal nonsense or other.

Complain away, I have no problem with complaints. But this weak-sauce attempt to justify having a moral imperative to steal it because you can't buy it from Amazon or whatever other mega-corporation to whom you've sworn allegiance is bollocks.

Mogwai's output over the last fee years has been very bland. I'd argue the same case for Trent and Atticus's music, to a lesser degree. Put them together and it's no surprise that you're getting a dull soundtrack.

I would doubt TR would openly say anything about the project that isn't positive. Besides, public and private opinions can differ, just as personal and professional opinions can.

In any case, all I stated was pure speculation. I don't pretend to know what the man is thinking. That said, my opinion pertaining to the lack of cohesion is just as valid as any other.

i have no idea what you guys are talking about. i listened to the score without paying any attention to who did which tracks (especially because the MP3 download didn't come with that info, or even with the tracks numbered except IN the track titles :mad:) and it felt perfectly cohesive and extremely compelling. i literally don't even know which tracks mogwai did and i enjoyed the whole score (though Thin Ice Reimagined was probably my favorite).

i listen to gone girl & TGWTDT pretty regularly, but i think this is my new favorite.

also, mogwai's last few albums & EPs have been beautiful and exciting. no, they don't get quite as LOUD as they used to, but their music is still interesting and has a great amount of emotional depth, despite being mostly instrumental.

Shocked to see so many negative comments about Mogwai...

Dust Bowl is one of my favorite tracks. And I have to say I have been diggin the last 3-4 albums they have put out.

Funny enough, minus the GS songs, this album sounds like a Alessandro Cortini album.

Least favorite track is by far "A Minute to Breathe". Feels awkward following Before The Flood.



Lastly, One Perfect Moment (at the 2:20 mark) is ALMOST a direct copy of Music For Airports by Eno. Not a ripoff...but VERY similar.

10-25-2016, 01:39 PM
Wanting to give it a couple listens, see it in context with the documentary to really form my opinions, but so far I've found myself really hoping Gustavo contributes something to the next NIN record. I was a huge Last of Us fan and found the idea of him working with Trent exciting on paper, but in practice it's even better than I could have guessed. Their styles seemed to blend very well into one another.

I think the big reason why the Mogwai stuff seems so lesser is that it feels like it was made in a separate bubble -- overall this lacks as much of the cohesion as other soundtracks TR&AR have done but I suppose that's to be expected with something featuring three different teams. That said, when it gets more electronic, it tends to shine a bit brighter than when it's more totally ambient and loop-centric.

I don't know how much I'll find myself listening to stuff from this on its own in the future -- I really dabble at best with the score work and most of the time that I consider listening to all of it I think "Why shouldn't I just watch the movie then?" since I like all the Fincher films they've worked on. Social network is still the most everyday listenable of them, Dragon Tattoo is the most stuffed and in turn has some of the best individual selections and Gone Girl is the creepiest and generally most "cinematic" feeling to me, it seems to tap much deeper into narrative through sound than the others. Before the Flood is ... well, exactly what I expected: incredibly sad in a way that's too pretty to turn off. It's not the kind of stuff I can see myself wanting to put on in the background to score my life, I'm sad enough most of the time already, haha.

That said there is some stuff here that I really think shows how much TR&AR have grown together and the work with Gustavo seems to offer a freshness to the formula that I've been wanting for a long time. Gustavo's love of strings really brings out a layer of emotion that I've found lacking in some of their stuff and I've always wanted more of Trent with strings, so, it's pretty perfect to me. I could see myself shelling out for the vinyl just for those songs alone (At Dusk is absolutely beautiful and feels like The Last of Us fell into bed with Dragon Tattoo).

Agreed. I think the album is spectacular, especially the TR&AR+GS pieces.

The suite of 8 Billion, One Perfect Moment into A Minute Later is something to behold... Exquisite sad music, slowly building into a sense of hope. The textures in Before The Flood, Between Two Poles and Trembling are stunning - especially the addition of Santaolalla's guitar work. I genuinely think the whole album is fantastic, it would just work better with AMTB maybe as a bonus track rather than as track 2.

liquidcalm
10-25-2016, 05:29 PM
the biggest surprise to me is how much the Mogwai tracks sound like TR+AR compositions, very restrained compared to a lot of their stuff. Not to say its bad, I find it hard to review soundtrack albums on their own merits, mostly because they are to suit a very specific purpose. However this does make soundtracks great to work too and this is up there with Social Network as my favourite one TR+AR have been involved in. Gustavo's guitar and strings really bring a lot as the synth/piano compositions do tend to make the other soundtracks sound a little flat when taken as a whole, so yeah. I think this is the best one yet actually.

At first I thought "ah, this must be a TR+AR track and Alessandro must definitely have contributed". But then as the song progressed I started to have doubts, I checked and in fact it was Mogwai. I also get some M83 vibes from the second part of the song.

Finally listened to this album late last night. Wanted to write down my first impressions before I start listening endlessly.

-Mogwai material felt entirely consistent w/ everything else, which I wasn't expecting.
-"Ghost Nets", much to my surprise, was an immediate highlight.
-I loved how TR and AR essentially covered Gustavo with "Thin Ice Reimagined" which I thought was a beautiful extension & reimagining.
-"8 Billion" blew me away almost instantly. I was surprised when I went to see which artist it was and it was solely Trent and Atticus. Again, I've only had once full listen of the album, but this track struck me as one of the pair's absolute best.

I'm very excited to dive deeper into this soundtrack. It feels like perfect Fall/Winter music, and will certainly help with the sometimes tough transition between seasons.

Props to Trent and Atticus for reaching outside their comfort zone to find creatively satisfying collaborators. I know they tried a similar scenario with Hesitation Marks, but I'm very happy it worked out this time.

The Social Network was the only soundtrack I "could" listen to (from TR&AR). The others just never seem to fit the right mood to listen to, or lack of motivation, or it didn't stand out enough has "great music to listen to without the actual movie".

I like this one, not much to say beyond that. A Minute to Breathe is not spectacular, but I just keep listening to it "because it's Trent Reznor".

That's good. Thanks to the inavailability of the album outside of the apple universe I held back from buying it digitally. It's good to have the physical release announced right in time before the (rumored) wide release of the digital files tomorrow. Now I will order the CD (and maybe use auto-rip in advance of actually geting it). Looks like there will be a happy end for me to this mess of a record release after all. ;)

Shocked to see so many negative comments about Mogwai...

Dust Bowl is one of my favorite tracks. And I have to say I have been diggin the last 3-4 albums they have put out.

Funny enough, minus the GS songs, this album sounds like a Alessandro Cortini album.

Least favorite track is by far "A Minute to Breathe". Feels awkward following Before The Flood.



Lastly, One Perfect Moment (at the 2:20 mark) is ALMOST a direct copy of Music For Airports by Eno. Not a ripoff...but VERY similar.

Yeah. Huge Eno influence on all of this.

Yep, I have to say, I like the Mogwai stuff, apart from Huaynaputina. They could almost be Reznor/Ross songs, shimmying keyboards, not in any hurry, good production. Not sure if they produced their own stuff actually, or if Reznor/Ross as score supervisors were responsible for that side of things too? All the Santaolalla is very good too, don't find myself ever even considering forwarding those tracks.

Just to be sure and noticing the unfairness of the absence of lossless format in the UK store while available in the US, I received this message :


Hello there,

Unfortunately these are the only files we have been provided with and will not be getting any other format for the files.


I understand that this seems unfair however we cannot change the format we were given.


If it comes to our attention that we will be receiving higher formats I will inform you right away.


I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused for you.

So it is really the fact that whoever is in charge did not send the lossless file to the store... Weird.

Dammit, the soundtrack is so good (I was a bit afraid after reading some of the comments in this thread) that it now makes me want to get the vinyl, but it is pricey. Folks, do you think that Amazon will get it at a lower price (the vinyl itself)? I know the shipping will be cheaper with them.

Jon
10-31-2016, 10:14 AM
I did not listen to any of the soundtrack before watching the film itself. The context for my opinion is in listening while watching the documentary.

Moody, atmospheric, excellent. There are many times that I thought of Lustmord, where a drone can sink you to the lowest lows or elevate you to the pinnacle of happiness. I did not have the feeling this was clich or redundant. I'm not personally sure how one could hear these melodies, accompanied by gorgeous cinematography, and not be almost completely in awe. This is a documentary, but should be viewed like a film (big screen + your concentration).

The wrap-up where DiCaprio is talking about the final panel of Bosch's painting and the music builds until the credits gave me goosebumps.

10-31-2016, 02:46 PM
So, it' a little odd -- after seeing the doc, I found that the music wasn't half as stand-out in the film rather than in isolation. It all worked just fine, but it didn't really "pop" in the way it does in all their Fincher collabs. I get that it was an information-based movie and so there were few lulls of silence, but it was pretty strange to notice. I enjoyed it greatly (thought the film was overall fantastic) but might see this becoming one of my most-listened to scores of theirs simply because I think if I wanna take the music in, I'd rather hear it alone, whereas something like Dragon Tattoo, I can put that film on to enjoy the music along with it because it all blends so well into a bizarre gigantic music video of sorts.

No worries dude, I do have to say that the moment with the Indian woman was very interesting, one of the best in the film. If I remember correctly, Leo DiCaprio says something like “we have the (clean) tech available so it’s now a matter of making this happen” and then Indian lady says “yes, that is available but you have to change’s people attitudes about this issue, you can have all the renewable energy in the world but if people’s consumption patterns do not change, nothing will change” and then DiCaprio DOWNPLAYS her answer and I said out loud something like “Really, DiCaprio? (facepalm)”…I fully agree with the lady there, it’s a matter of people’s behavior.

The song that closes the film, "A Minute to Breathe," (https://itunes.apple.com/us/post/idsa.2115d430-8ca5-11e6-b213-558fe71a10a8) is very much channeling that same kind of emotion. It’s jarringly beautiful and vulnerable at the same time.

That was written specifically for the film. About a third of the way through the compositional process for scoring the film, it started as kind of a private challenge to see if I could write a song with lyrics that would fit this in the right kind of way, that is not overly direct, or ridiculously on point—that could tie in in a way that feels authentic, that could live on its own as a piece of music but fits well in the context of this film. I’ve written some music for films in the past, pop songs that fit in the general theme of what the music is about, back in the '90s when there were compilation soundtrack records. But this felt a lot more naked. Atticus and I spent a few weeks on it. We hadn’t collaborated on vocal music since the last Nine Inch Nails record. It was uncomfortable. I was singing in a register I had never sung in before. There was nowhere really to hide.

I didn’t mention to Fisher that I was doing it because I figured if it ends up sucking no one needs to know we even tried. But we ended up feeling pretty good about it and told him, hey, we’ve written a song and at your discretion, if you think it’ll fit somewhere, we’d be proud to have it involved, and it worked out the way it did.

Just finished the movie. I thought the music complemented a nice fashion, the movie but clearly didn't have the same impact it would have normally had on a work of fiction. Music helps boost and elevate emotions convey by a particular scene. Here, it served more as a background music. Still, it was enjoyable.

Here is the 5.1 mix of "A Minute to Breathe" from the 1080 WebRip (extracted with MKV toolnix), I kept the last two words of Leo (out of luck as I just cut the video a few seconds before the beginning of the end credits as a safety, so we're sure the version is complete).

Please re-upload it some place else instead of copy-paste this link if you want to share this outside the forum.

Thanks for this... it's nice to hear, especially outside of a film festival screening context where the subtle, quiet credits sequence had to compete with the sounds of seats slapping against headrests and shuffling feet in a big cavernous theatre.

Now I don't know with the amount of artists involved if this will be elligible for Best Score come Oscar time. However, I do believe "A Minute To Breathe" could be eligible for Best Original Song.

If Sam fucking Smith can win, it would be a travesty if it wasn't nominated, although I don't know the competition. Just think, we could have President Trump by then, terrifying thought.
(Actually is this documentary even eligible for Oscars. Has it been released in any cinema?)

It is eligible. It is one of the 145 documentaries (http://www.indiewire.com/2016/10/oscars-2017-145-documentaries-submitted-academy-awards-1201741494/) submitted.

I watched the film yesterday. A good summary of the current knowledge on climate change and the music compliments it nicely. Some new sounds, but I have to listen to it isolated to value it propperly.

Although (spoiler) I can't imagine that the UN embassador for climate change has never heard of the gulf stream being interrupted. I hope they put it that way for dramatic purpose. That's embarrassing!

Yes, quite significantly. We are still 'before the flood' as it were, but probably not for much longer.

They're already feeling the effects in some parts of the world. Agricultural lands abandoned due to sudden aridity, droughts, earth movements from melting glaciers. The problem is that it's affecting rural communities in the third world, who're already disadvantaged, and far enough away from us that the media and government are largely unaware or turning a blind eye. Talk to aid workers, though, and you see how bad it's getting already.

Before The Flood pointed out the likelihood of central US states becoming a long-term dustbowl, I think that's going to be unavoidable if Trump follows through on his climate-sceptic policy promises. Sad thing is, that region's where a lot of his support is coming from.

Good film. The climate change is definitely terrifying and it's been haunting my mind ever since I was taught about it in school, but I like that the film explores many possible outcomes. The scene that affected me the most was the one with NASA scientist Piers Sellers (https://www.inverse.com/article/23042-leonardo-dicaprio-climate-change-piers-sellers). It was truly emotional and it was wise of them to put it in the end. I'm getting teary-eyed just thinking about it.

That said, the almost-hypnotic soundtrack made me wander off and not pay attention to all the important stuff that all those people were saying. The different subject matter and contributions of Santaolalla and Mogwai pushed TRAR out of their comfort zone of dark beats and ambient synths. I wasn't that impressed by the ambience and piano melodies in Juno. The ambience here was much more impressive and layered. I smiled when familiar-sounding instruments kept popping up throughout the film, though sometimes they were a bit too familiar (I'm getting tired of the midtempo rhythmic "dun... dun... dun... dun..." synths). The moment when the very first bass synth note pops out of the ambience as Leo describes the Hieronymus Bosch painting was breathtaking. Like, BOOOOM. Shit is getting real.

"A Minute to Breathe" was very fresh and also a good self-imposed challenge for Trent's vocals. The 5.1 mix that totom posted is legit, as the surround channels don't have the lead vocals in them, only the backing ones and the piano reverberation. TRAR still mix in surround like it's nobody's business. The webrip's 5.1 mix has some cool stuff going on with the entire film's soundtrack and I can't wait to listen to it again when the movie is released on Blu-ray. I will listen to the album tomorrow and provide some more detailed thoughts on it.

On a side note, I cracked up when that guy was talking about cows and methane and an electronic drum beat started playing. The combination of beats and methane instantly reminded me of a quote from Meathead's review of Ghosts I-IV: "Ghosts I-IV is actually interesting, and you can do more than simply take a shit to it. I mean, if you wanted to take a shit while listening to Ghosts I-IV, I'm sure you could, but I would be careful not to get your feces all over the place while dancing on the toilet seat during Atticus' stuff. That could be unpleasant."

Quoted for significance. Re: the actual music, it's beautiful and achieves its purpose splendidly, and, because of that, I may not revisit it as a standalone record as much as I do TSN, TGWTDT, or GG (and I listen to those soundtracks quite often). Knowing TR's intentions for writing "A Minute to Breathe" adds even more depth. Santaolalla's clean-tone guitar licks are classy editions to TR+AR's piano/electronics shtick.

Yeah, they're definitely taking their time. It's dated as October 28th, but I know for a fact it only went up within the last few days because I was constantly checking. It's pretty stupid in today's world that you would delay the release of something that could have so easily been released simultaneously everywhere. And these companies wonder why people steal music. With these archaic release models, they're only doing damage to themselves and they deserve it.

It's supposed to be released on Dec. 16th by Lakeshore Records. But still there's not much further information about it, so I'm not sure if it is really happening. You can still preorder it on amazon, but you can't find it there with a simple search...

Edit: you can preorder it on German amazon. For US the page is down. :(

I was about to order, but it appears that at some point they stopped allowing you to use discover card as a payment option. Not sure if it's due to pre-order or not...I'll try again later from a PC I guess.
