REVIEW

Disc 1 in this set is made up of a lot of very short pieces with most running less than one minute. It's a nice mix of reworked previously done themes with some new music. The tracks run the gamut from rousing, action music to slow, plodding music. Real nice stereo separation.

Disc 2 is made up of movie dialogue and sound effects with the music mainly in the background. Strangely, Disc 2 has a running time almost double that of the 1st disc that contains the music.

Deciding between this 2 CD set and the single disc score is a toss up. The single disc has more actual music tracks from the movie than this 2 CD set but the essential music from the film is on both. Also, with the 2 CD set you get some movie dialogue and sound effects that you don't have on the single disc. The plus side on the 1 CD disc is that there is a lot less repetition.
