    Any ideas why neither BB Extended nor W.vol.3 are on streaming platforms?

    No idea about BB Extended, but Watchmen vol. 3 is definitely on streaming platforms.

    I don't use Deezer. But it's definitely on Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon Music. I haven't checked anything other than those.

    I asked Deezer support a month ago, they said the publisher never delivered or something. I hate that I canít listen to it on the fly now.

    it would be nice to be able to say fuck you to Spotify and the streaming services of the large brands like Apple and Amazon, but if the labels donít allow Deezer to host their stuff..

    Looks like a film adaptation of "Malorie" (sequel to "Bird Box") is in the works. Since TR/AR probably aren't scoring it...I don't know why I'm posting this.

    Have a great day.

    i liked it a whole lot more than A Quiet Place

    i can believe that people adapted to wearing blindfolds and making their way around; blind people exist and thrive.
    i CANNOT believe that an entire family with small children went for years with no one ever crying/farting/sneezing/coughing loud enough to attract the attention of those creatures.

    Neither film really lived up to their potential in my opinion. I found A Quiet Place to be a slog and Bird Box only slightly less so. I give Bird Box the edge over A Quiet Place because of the Trent/Atticus score and a couple effective scenes, but that's about it.

    In the recent DP/30 interview, Trent talks of a project where they felt ‘are we the only ones who care about this film?’. I wonder if this was the one as they put so much effort into the vinyl packaging, seems like they cared for it but then found the end result wasn’t up to snuff

    Could be this, or it could easily be Patriots Day or Woman in the Window.

    Trent mentioned in the Revolver interview they did last year that Bird Box was a disappointment for them. From his comments, it seems like the film was pitched to them as something that was more nuanced than it ended up being:

    "We were sold a bill of goods that it was a psychological thriller and the director had a pedigree that was somewhat impressive. And when we got immersed in it, it felt like some people were phoning it in. And you're stuck with a film editor who had real bad taste. That's kind of our barricade to getting stuff in the film. And the final icing on the shit cake was we were on tour when they mixed it. And they mixed the music so low, you couldn't hear it anyway. So it was like, that was a [laughs]...that was a fucking waste of time. Then we thought, No one's going to see this fucking movie. And, of course, it's the hugest movie ever on Netflix."

    I just got the vinyl of Bird Box. It doesn’t warrant the $80 price tag, IMO. Four LPs, eight sides. Not one side is full. A couple or so sides are barely half full.

    Um, that's not how vinyl works?

    Yes it is. Each side of a vinyl record holds 22 minutes of audio. You can CLEARLY see the blank/wasted space on these "Bird Box" records because no side has anywhere near 22 mins. of music. This should have been 3 LPs for $60. "Deviations" doesn't have all that wasted space and is definitely worth the $80. "Bird Box" isn't. Again, IMO.

    You paid $80 for 2 hours and 7 minutes of runtime. Are you suggesting they split tracks across two sides to "fill" albums? Or just toss in some filler to make a neat and tidy 22 minutes per side?

    It's not a linear cap at 22 minutes, though, that's just a general guideline for pop albums. This is a different kind of music, and the record lathes that cut audio into the grooves can sometimes behave differently, depending on the content. The cutting engineer can also choose to mostly avoid the inner part of the disc, instead of going all the way towards the label, so they avoid inner groove distortion that will compromise playback. With all this in mind, this album's 13–20 minutes per side is not 'barely half full'. Side 7 is a little bit shorter than that, granted, but it's also one of the more bass-heavy and dynamic sides with "Contagion B" and "Contagion C" both book-ending the quiet piano on "Last Thing Left"... perhaps they wanted to leave some more breathing room there. Conceptually, it's also a bummer to try and fill each side up with an exact amount of time when this release is by design sprawling and 'self-indulgent'. There was more music on Deviations 1, sure, but also far less lavish packaging (as I'm sure we all remember), so between the two... in terms of value-for-money, I think it's a draw.

    2 hours fits on 3 LPs. I wish they would have found a way to do it like that.

    Yeah, it kinda is. I didn't mind the minimal packaging of "Deviations," it's the music I'm after. Vinyl's great, but it's not always the best choice for the $$. But, when what you want is only available in vinyl, you have to gamble, like I did here. It's all good though. I might sell it. Interested?

    OK so on your version track 3 starts on side A...flip...ends on side B.

    Edit: the other option is drawing straws to decide who goes back to TR/AR asking if they'd like to rearrange the track order or lop off some minutes from this track or that track to "fill the sides". Good luck with that.

    I think they mixed the music so low because the score was so pants-shittingly-scary they didn't want it upstaging the visuals. Still my favorite work of theirs.

    It is an incredible score, in my opinion. And well worth the asking price. The artwork is lavish, keeping in theme with the film, and unique. The score is a favourite of mine in Trent’s entire body of work, let alone just considering the scores (of which only TGWTDT betters it). It’s a joy to me.
