I saw this up for preorder at SAE a while back.
Hmmm...even at 5000 copies I'm just not sure how well loved the Jurassic scores are - save for a couple of iconic main themes and a handful of good cues, it's not a "great" score and, despite the lavish packaging, the discs themselves seem quite barren in terms of extras that we know were recorded, with low running lengths per disc.
I can obviously see why they stuck to two discs per film, but, seriously, they could have programmed this as a three disc set, since that's how much material there is, stretched out to four platters, and made the asking price a little more reasonable. Most people, as I do, will have the OSTs from the first time around, and will know that the Lost World score is mostly only half good anyway.
So it's quite a premium price point for one and a half decent scores and a very nice looking booklet (though not even deluxe digibook packaging?). I don't know...sixty bucks seems to be pretty steep considering what's actually contained here. $40 maybe, but $30 would have been a "heck yeah!".
I do love the first film's music, but the original CD was a more than decent representation (and I also have the theme single that was put out) and I guess this might be a pickup for those without the discs already, but I just can't get past the low runtime and high cost to get too excited by this one (and this coming from someone who just dropped thirty bucks to get the expanded Santa Claus: The Movie two-disc...but that *was* just limited to only 500 copies!).
