Directed by Walter Hill and based off of the 1965 novel by Sol Yurick of the same name, THE WARRIORS is the absolute definition of an influential cult-classic film. THE WARRIORS has permeated the landscape of pop culture, music, film, fashion, comics, and video games.

This is my second release direct from WW. Although their dedication to putting out a premium product is fairly consistent, their gatefolds seem to suffer varying amounts of factory damage, whether it's due to the manufacturing process or factory delivery is an uncertainty. It's never anything major but definitely something WW should look at as they release more premium packages as their prices rise.

As for the print. sounds nice and crisp right out the sleeve. Little to no artefacts present on either of the discs and this is prior to cleaning. So if you find yours to be a little fuzzy or produce pops, try giving it a clean. But be mindful that extreme colour swirls like this can carry artefacts due to the manufacturing process.

Worth a purchase for the unreleased material alone.

I have quite a few OSTs and after getting my first 2 from Waxwork Records over the last month or so (Taxi Driver and The Warriors), and I must say, I'm really liking the quality of what Waxwork is putting out. First of all, the gatefold jacket is nice and thick. The sleeves are poly lined, and the vinyl looks pretty damn cool. Not to mention the new original illustration artwork inside and outside the gatefold. Like anothermansvinyl says, there is definitely some LIGHT static, pops and snaps, especially on Disc 2, but overall does not take away from the listening experience at all in my opinion. Definitely recommend picking this one up if you like funky rock, somewhat psychedelic synthish type stuff from this time period, and especially if you like this movie.

I'll be the first to report light static, pops and snaps on the graffiti version. I cleaned it, but no improvement. Only really notable on Disc Two ... but that's what sucks, because I won't be listening to Disc One hardly ever. (I have the original soundtrack, and it is pretty hard to listen to all the way through. Besides Joe Walsh, the songs are atrocious.)

Anyway, the expanded score is tight and groovy, and very much appreciated; the colored vinyl is pretty; and the art is okay, but these comic book-style covers are kinda becoming a soundtrack reissue cliche. (I wish they'd make an effort to reproduce the vintage one-sheets for these things, especially for 1970s cult movies. You just can't beat a film's original promotional art!)

A cleaner pressing would have been nice for the price. And a single LP alternative, with just the score. That woulda been cool too. Glad I'm not one of the suckers that spent $200 on the "deluxe" version. ($140 extra for a cardboard slipcase and photo-booklet and some silly bopper pins? Wow. That was a confusing price-point. Not sure how WW came up with that amount, unless they have expensive royalties to pay off.)

Final Note: I'm a geek and I timed Disc Two. Just out of curiosity. Its runtime is a satisfactory 32 mins 20 secs, and about 23 minutes of that is previously unreleased ... FYI!
