User reviews
Other than "In The Mouth Of Madness," I'd say this pressing sounds great. "In The Mouth Of Madness," sounds like bad mixing to me - muddy. I'm underwhelmed by this release overall and agree with the other reviewer that I would much rather have the originals, particularly In The Mouth Of Madness. The rest of the songs sound fine but they lack the...magic? of the originals. I dunno - just left me wanting to hear the originals. I imagine seeing Carpenter's band is different. My copy has a slight warp too...ugh. Good thing this came with a download card.
Mine has a tiny warp too and yeah the sound is very compressed throughout. Thankfully I didn’t pay more for a color variant. I’ll live with this. Also agreed that maybe there should have been a second LP with the original recordings but seeing as how a lot are spread across multiple labels probably would have been hard.
While I do love the new work Carpenter has done, it would be so much better to have the original recordings of these amazing pieces reissued! A Halloween reissue with the original artwork, or the Fog? Simple, 1LP releases that are well mastered, pressed and presented. I'd buy 20!!!
Pretty sure it has to do with the rights to the music more than anything. That said, many of the original soundtracks have full pressings that sound great. So yeah, I agree that it's missing a little something, but it's still a great record, you just have to think of it as something a little different.
