    I think a lot of the time, the relative success of the film, critically or commercially has an impact on how the score is judged or even noticed, like I preferred the GWTDT score to Social Network personally but the film wasn’t as well received as TSN so it wasn’t as acclaimed. I think Soul is doing very well due to word of mouth even though it isn’t available except on Disney+ but Mank was far more niche and went a bit under the radar. A lot of the Soul score has got into my head and I love the Batiste jazz TRAR combo, I think it elevates both of them.

    I just received an email to say my Soul score CD has been dispatched

    I definitely agree with the Soul buzz having an effect. And I'm not at all suggesting the Soul score is not deserving of awards and accolades. For me personally I think it has more to do with my initial reaction to Mank ("holy shit how does this not win another Oscar?") and then 2 weeks later Soul asks me to hold its beer.

    True, I love the Mank score too. But I think the Soul film and score have that ‘perfect storm’ quality to them of being uplifting and having the right message at a time when the world so very much needs that

    It looks like Universal Music (who is distributing this CD) is using the same UPC for the Australia, UK, and EU versions of the CD: 0050087424251

    Searching by UPC might help with sourcing a copy of the CD.

    I love the movie! My kids (4 and 6) aren't interested yet. But I'll to watch it again later on.

    To be frank, I'm not the biggest soundtrack fan, I didn't got all the way through of Mank, Vietnam War, Waves or Gone Girl. Or... even Ghosts 6.... I did love Social Network, Watchmen and Bird Box.

    And I like this soundtrack. It's kinda weird to have all these small pieces. It makes it easier to listen to. Probably in my top 3 TR&AR soundtrack.

    Also, me listening to Epiphany: "Wow! Trent is as good as Jon Batiste!! oh.. wait, it's Jon Batiste.";

    Are the vinyl tracks different in any way in contrast to the digital release? Crossfades, etc?

    There is no US edition CD. It doesn't exist. However, you can buy an import CD.

    There has not been a U.S. domestic CD release, and it doesn't appear that one will be forthcoming. If you want a CD, you'll have to import. Buying this one seems to be the cheapest option I've found so far. Comes out to about $18-19, shipped to the US:

    We talked about Soul on my film podcast last week, and I got to give a quick breakdown of Trent & Atticus' score career and how beautifully it culminates in the "epiphany" sequence of Soul. Score discussion starts at 11:00, and my breakdown stars at 12:30. Enjoy!

    I’ve been thinking about this scores Oscar chances and whether it was eligible and found an article, mainly about Hans Zimmer and Johnny Greenwood’s brushes with the rules, but apparently when this was written the music branch had a new rule that three or more composers could submit as a group. So hopefully this could happen
