Hello there fellow ETers,
This may have already been mentioned(havn't read the posts for a few weeks now), but in case it hasn't, I just wanted to let you all know how awesome it was to hear "In The Court Of The Crimson King", in the recent movie release "Children Of Men". The peice fit so well and was that 20th Century Schizoid I heard in the background on one of the outcasts radio's?
A highly recommended movie for any ETer and made all the more splendid with this great classic peice getting played. The movie has a gritty feel and the ending would have fit well in an episode of Blakes 7, which by the way made it even better. The sound was spectacular with the effects actually mixed properly and not just a stack of bass where there shouldn't be(any one get sick and tired of seeing a movie at the cinema and when something minor like a glass breaks, there's a rediculously loud booming bass sound? It's totally dumb when they do that and ruins any hope of realism at all). At the end of the day it could just be the cinema I go to, but I assure you that if it can sound great in this cinema then it will be great with some of the other cinemas out there.
All the best and may neuro surgeons scream for more,
