This sounds ok. I'm completely underwhelmed by the packaging. Yes, I know sound is what matters most...still. This is a single sleeve cover with both discs shoved in there. I hate when these companies do that and would much prefer a thick gatefold. The inner sleeves are plain black. There's no insert and there's a few liner notes on the back. No photos on the back of the cover and about the only "foil embossed" part of the cover that I can see is the silver strip at the top. Why bother? That said, it sounds ok. The discs look neat I suppose, though I always prefer plain black wax, which sounds better IMO. I'd much rather have a cool insert with liner notes and extra photos on a gatefold than "colored vinyl." But that's me.

You'd think with such a popular horror franchise that it would get the extra treatment, but you'd be wrong. Is this worth $30? Nope.

Bare bones release: 3 out of 5.

Thank you for the invitation to your group. I just joined. I've tried for a couple of years to get people to participate in another soundtracks group on here with zero response.

Additionally, I wonder if there are any plans for Death Waltz to do a pressing of this. I prefer their original artwork usually.

These are a lot of the same complaints that I had with Christopher Young - Hellraiser (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) that Lakeshore put out.

I found that the sound quality was subpar and sadly, the Death Waltz pressing (Christopher Young - Hellraiser (Original Motion Picture Score)) is also quite horrid.

That being said, I think the sound has something to do with the master. I find it hard to believe that the two labels would encounter the exact same issue any other way.

I have a Soundtrack/Score group here on Discogs - https://www.discogs.com/group/9357 - and it would be awesome if you'd join.
