ScoreKeeper Wants To Give You One Of Five Copies Of John Powell's BOLT Score!!
Greetings! ScoreKeeper here stealing Santa’s thunder with another CD giveaway that’s sure to jingle your bells.
John Powell recently scored the latest Walt Disney animated feature film BOLT and I’ve got five brand new CD soundtracks of his score to deliver just in time for Christmas.
If that’s not enough to entice you to enter then take note there’s a song called “I Thought I Lost You” on the disc which is sung by Miley Cyrus and John Travolta…Miley Cyrus!!! That’s Hanna Montana, you know...I’m not kidding.
Ya, let’s see you resist entering now.
The requirements for entry are simple. Just email me at email@example.com with the subject BOLT CD GIVEAWAY. Include your full name, mailing address, a valid email address, and your favorite score for an animated film.
All entries will enter a pool and five winners will be randomly picked. Each winner will receive the original motion picture soundtrack CD from BOLT, courtesy of Walt Disney Records.
The deadline will be Tuesday, December 23rd, at 11:59PM EST. The winners will be drawn on Christmas Eve, December 24th, and announced Christmas Day (you are working Christmas Day, right Merrick?). Only one entry per person please. Any duplicate entries will be discarded. International entries accepted.
Don’t be a Grinch. Enter now!
Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Jolly __________! And Happy New Year!

...only thirty minutes of it are on the CD? I thought this was 2008, not 1995. The whole "re-use fees" thing was ironed out nearly a decade ago, so releasing only half-an-hour of a score that probably runs at least twice that is a collossal rip-off. God thing I only paid five bucks for it...

Only 30 minutes of the score are on the CD? You're right, Nasty, that's a rip-off. Then again, such is the bullshit of CDs and the recording industry as a whole. Being old enough to remember the birth of CDs and the transition from vinyl records, remember the promise that CDs would cost LESS than records since they cost so little to press? Well, I really love paying 18.99 for a CD compared to when I paid like 7 bucks for a record. And then being a soundtrack lover myself, I love that the promise of CDs was also how much music they could hold, and now, as you noted, you get the company issuing out a CD with only a fragment of a score. And don't even get me started on the idea that the promise of CDs or the digital age was that I could take my music files anywhere, and now you have record companies fighting tooth and nail to impose all new sanctions and rules on file transfers, trading, whatever.

...back in 1999 or thereabouts, a new deal was struck with the musicians' union to allow more music to be put on soundtrack CDs(which meant an end to those horrid, 30-minute Varese Sarabande CDs that littered stores in the early-mid 90's, unless the scores were recorded overseas, meaning smaller or no re-use fees). So, releasing barely a half-hour of music from a film with at least a hour's worth of score is absolute BULLSHIT in this day and age. There are plenty of lengthy John Powell scores available (his Paycheck score is tremendous), so for a film that runs all of 85 minutes, releasing so little of the music is a collossal rip-off.

Bolt score? Fuck buy a life. I find it sad that anyone anywhere would get excited about anything Bolt. Maybe if you are a drooling pre-adolescent who enjoyed Cars.

Bolt is a great movie, and the score is entertaining...it's just that there's way too little of it on the CD.

It's the first sign of the positive influence Pixar is having on Disney's own animated movies, which have been pretty crappy of late.

Screw you guys, heh.

...a soundtrack giveaway to get excited about. <br><br> HORTON HEARS A WHO was good, but after hearing the competent but underwhelming JUMPER and HANCOCK, I was concerned that John Powell was losing his mojo. BOLT proved me wrong. <br><br> And fuck anyone who badmouths the film right in their ear. One of the best I've seen this year.

Other than that it was your typical generic animated garbage, that they release nowadays.

La La Land records has just released a Batman The Animated Series 2 cd set that is awesome. Limited to 3000 copies - get 'em while you can!

Bro, you Jewish? You Chinese? What's going on?
Dec. 21, 2008, 9:34 p.m. CST
I think that the word score refers to musical notation. The thing that you actually listen to is called a composition, or a musical piece, or in the case of a film, the soundtrack. I'm just saying.

It's got some solid cues. But I tell you, they gotta stop selling these albums with just 30 minutes of music on them. It's just not right charging full price for half of the CD's capacity.
Dec. 21, 2008, 9:53 p.m. CST
I do remember the Miley/Travolta song though. Come to think of it. I can't remember most cue's in films today or video games. Score's have gone out the window. In the 70's & 80's scores were king. You walked out of a theater humming the score. Excited to buy the soundtrack, nowadays big sound effects and CGI come first.

Even if the CD were only 30 minutes long.
Dec. 22, 2008, 2:21 a.m. CST
Don't laugh. It's a darn good music score! I promise I'm not being sarcastic.
Dec. 22, 2008, 2:21 p.m. CST
its THIS ONE, baby.
Dec. 22, 2008, 7:01 p.m. CST
I havent heard this one yet though, not released in UK as yet. But man, Kung Fu Panda is the second best Soundtrack of the year for me.
Dec. 22, 2008, 7:05 p.m. CST
Thats the 4 story animated feature that preceded the Dark Knight movie.
Dec. 22, 2008, 9:15 p.m. CST
Terrific, propulsive cues...you could call it "The Bolt Identity"

Sorry. Had to.

Technically it is.

but the cd is only stereo and therefore two-dimensional, right? ;)
