  1. damn, greenwood cut him self out of an oscar nom again using prior released tracks like he did on twbb. oh well.

  2. FUCK THE OSCARS...... True art lives on.

  3. I still don't understand that rule, or at least the execution of it.

    How did The Artist get nominated, let alone win, when nearly 10-15 minutes of the silent film used Vertigo's main theme?

  4. Think it only breaks the rule if its from a prior released album not connected to anything but its ok if its from another soundtrack even if it had its on released ost.

    doesn't really matter though but still a shame come the award show for best soundtrack and this isnt in it.

  5. Here's a link to the free download track for cheap bastards like myself, even though it sounds so great that I'll be downloading the whole album for certain anyway.


    I recall back in December (?) when a member of Zed U mentioned with they were working with Greenwood on the score and when I listen to this track i heard little sections that sounded like some of their jazzier stuff.

    1. How do you download it ? THIS TRACK IS CRAZY.

    2. http://www.nonesuch.com/journal/nonesuch-release-jonny-greenwood-soundtrack-paul-thomas-anderson-film-the-master-sept-11-preorder-2012-08-14

      you'll get a download of it when you pre-order the album

    3. Yes, that's what I did. But being french and all, it becomes 35 $; I'll wait for Itunes.

  6. I'm not sure where to post this so I'll just post it here. I've noticed that the lyrics to Leonard Cohen's 'The Master Song' have a few parallels to the plot of The Master.

    1. OMG I'm so glad you noticed that. I thought I was the only one.

  7. I preorder this a week ago, and still haven't received a confirmation email? You think I'll get it when it ships for September 11? thanks
