Anyone else think the presentation and materials here are a million times more impressive than the 2018 reissue of Elfman's soundtrack to Batman '89?

The new copy that Mondo sent me is flawless and really brings one of my favorite soundtracks to life. Can't wait until they release the original soundtrack next year. According to the packaging, we can also expect a proper Edward Scissorhands release in 2018 as well. Really worth the price if you can still scoop it up for around $50. The expanded edition is worth the premium.

I bought the black vinyl version as I am hearing there are (unsurprisingly) sound issues with the colored wax. However, it is extremely frustrating that once again a Mondo release is marred by careless quality control at the pressing plant with someone shoving in the liner notes into the sleeve and making it creased. The lovely artwork has been ruined by creases made by some idiot's finger. This LP is so expensive-why can't they just be more careful?

Update: After 4 attempts I still have not found a copy of this LP, which is free of very basic manufacturing flaws including being quite dirty. The vinyl is heavy but it is also extremly clicky (even after a clean) and also I notice particularly on the first disc that there appears to be scratches and even gouges on one copy, which make loud pops and clicks. Side C starts with a load of crackle and rice krispies on all the copies I have heard. Overall, I think this is a poorly manufactured pressing-a bit of a clunker.

Man, this sounds amazing. I'm usually a bit hesitant about Mondo releases, but this is just great. Vinyl is heavy and sturdy, and the package is amazing. Definitely one of the best sounding soundtracks I own. Can't wait for the first one next year.

My copy arrived with a damaged black vinyl disk 1 and even after VPI cleaning has a static in the left channel throughout and is driving me nuts.

If we compare the "Batman Returns" score to the previous one ("Batman"), there are several differences. This score is more fragmented, edited and mixed together. That is why you get several parts for a single theme. However, Elfman is pulling through with his gorgeous style and inventive genius. The introduction (Birth Of A Penguin 1 & 2) is magnificent. The Penguin and Catwoman get their own musical themes, in which the Batman theme is sometimes incorporated. Siouxsie & The Banshees break the modern classical thematic by bringing in a boring track ("Face To Face") which served in the film's credits to clear the cinemas (nice job: it worked pretty well). Sadly, the last "Batman" score for Elfman, later replaced by Elliot Goldenthal.
