REVIEW

Updated February 25, 2009

This CD is identical to the single CD TYCY-5363 except that it runs 6 minutes longer and has an additional 12 cues. I believe the main difference is in the length of some of the tracks which is why this CD can have 12 more tracks and only run 6 minutes longer. The order of the track listings between the two discs is also almost identical where they both contain the same song.

If you can only buy one of the CD's to this movie it's a toss up between this one and TYCY-5363. Both contain mostly the same material and both sound very good. Most of the additions on this disc are very short cues lasting under one minute each with many under 30 seconds.

This soundtrack was issued by Futureland in two different versions. The standard edition includes a regular CD in a white tray with a printed back insert, while the "Picture Disc" version features a colorfully silk-screened CD in a clear ridged CD tray with no back insert (allowing the disc to show through the back of the jewel case). Aside from the above differences, both versions have the same catalog number, booklet and obi.
