I completely agree. These songs are examples of poetic world building, so fully realized in the arrangements, we're transported.

I am having a ‘Kate Baldwin singing Ribbons Down my Back’ experience with “The Predatory Wasp…”. This was a song that I skipped on the original album but I can’t stop playing this version.

I just came home from seeing the matinee and saw this! The music was simply glorious, and I'm excited that it'll be out so soon!

Kate Baldwin was the first time I ever didn’t hate that song

I’m not someone who normally notices orchestrations but this one was one while watching I was like this has to win orchestrations

With CD sales on the decline, I'm guessing there isn't as many manufacturing plants.

im not nearly as enamored with Stereophonic as everyone else is….like I think it’s a good play but I don’t think it’s the earth shattering score/orchestrations winning piece everyone else thinks it is
