Unfortunately what I bought (black vinyl) was off-center pressed, both sides. Had to send it back, was refunded. I hope that was the only one. In the other hand it's a great soundtrack!

A superb CD. One of those rare instances of a soundtrack that can be enjoyed quite apart from the visuals. If this standard can be maintained, I hope there will be a soundtrack CD for Season 2.

I was very disappointed with my copy. Lots of surface noise throughout.

2nd disc was the worst. Crackling all over the place. Beware, test it before buying if you can.
I would advise pay against above the suggested retail price.

I just got mine in the mail. The outer 2 discs are warped as hell. The packaging seemed strong and not bent at all. The middle disc isn't warped but sure is noisy. B&N have refunded but should I reorder? It seems there might be some issues with this set?

All the talk of bad quality, I've listened to mine a few times, and it's pristine, so I'd say return it for a replacement.

I'm getting a lot of surface noise on my copy. I even cleaned it on the vpi 16.5 before playing. Anyone else having this issue?

This is a great CD, although I wish it had more of the "futuristic" sounding versions of some songs. For example track 2 "Sweetwater", when watching the show, there is a "Western" version of the song, as well as a distinctly more modern sounding version with icy synthesizers, and an overall sci-fi atmosphere. From what I can tell, this CD doesn't really have many of the futuristic song versions.

Additionally, track 18 "Reverie" is a very beautiful track, both on the CD and in the show. Anyone who has seen the show would recognize it, but again - there are different iterations of it played throughout the series, and this CD only contains one version of it. I would have liked to hear the more old-timey kids toy version of the song (reminiscent of Vangelis' Blade Runner Soundtrack, particularly "Memories of Green" - a somewhat detuned piano-like instrument with some reverberation) which in the show created a very haunting atmosphere of blissfully melancholic nostalgia - you know - the sort where you long for it. Where you feel so close to the past, yet infinitely distant. This version is good too, but I wish all versions of every track were included on this release.

To conclude, I feel that this CD is quite good - but incomplete. It satisfies only part of the thirst I had for the music featured in "Westworld", and considering it is a 2 disc soundtrack... I expected more.

My favorite tracks.
