I wondered why I have not posted this before since I absolutly love it. I always vowed to myself if I ever own a fat stack i’m gonna have a session with this OST just so I can hear it a a masive volume. I have been listening to some of the remxes that have been made too. I must say the dubstep version doesn’t really have much to do with the original except it has richard burns voice. Jeff wayne did a few trance remixes when the worked on the RTS game on PC and they arn’t to bad. The war machine remix is quite good. It has the ULLA war cry with a gated FX that sounds pretty good.
If I was to make a remix I would simple beef up the bass and drum kits make them more electronic. Some more recent stuff jeff wayne has done tells me that he is no stranger to modern baslines. They are also starting “the new generation” tour in december with liam neeson as the journalist :. To be frank I speak of remixes and such but if it aint broken then don’t fix it. The OST is perfect, a masterpiece even (in my eyes anyway) As far as I know the ULLAdubULLA strings and black smoke band are still the performers. I still want to go and see it but when I had the chance to go I didn’t take it up because the artilleryman was played by Jason Donavon LOL (and I was busy being a K head) But seriously he got some awful reviews for his part.
If you have never heard it then please be my guest and prepare to launch yourself into 1898 and listen to this
If you want to watch the live show here’s a link to some Russian site that has it uploaded YouTube – War Of The Worlds Live On Stage 2006 part 1 —August 21, 2012 at 11:08 am #1257335
Ricky wilson from the kaiser chiefs is set to play the artilleryman in the upcoming shows. It’s a shame cos I would have like to see the old version really. I would like to smoke some DMT durring it too. LOL I remember listening to the album while still high on acid and It blew me away AGAIN If I was to take drugs at the live show I don’t really know what I would take. Acid seems like a winner, or maybe some MDMA and small doses of klectomine. I wouldn’t want to take too much k cos I would miss it.
well it sounds as though they are revamping some of the sings not just the on stage ensemble. Cos now the runtime is two hours.August 21, 2012 at 11:38 am #1257333
Very good to listen to at night around a bonfire in the countryside.August 21, 2012 at 11:42 am #1257339
