What a hideous cover!

Looks to me, from the picture, that the packaging is a book with each CD in an envelope on either side. So, the packaging is a lot more hideous than the cover.


The last two pages of the book are sleeves for the CDs.

I like the cover, personally. I wouldn't have wanted the OST cover again, and a lot of Disney animated cover art is not my cup of tea (key art with a solid background, the title slapped across the top).

....one thing I have learned, Zimmer's Album suites are a lot better than what is actually written for the films. .

That is why I am excited by this release but would never part with the ost!!!!!

On first listen I would say that the suite which concludes the original release is a better listen than the final track of TLC "The Rightful King".
This new version clocks in at 10 plus minutes and meanders a bit as it follows the on-screen action

I really dislike the "Stampede" and "Rightful King" cues on the expanded edition. I replaced those with the OST cues, "...To Die For" and "King of Pride Rock". The rest is fabulous and I generally love this release.

"Stampede", and the whole score, sounds much better on this release (as Mr. Southall so accurately points out in his fine review). Do an "a' & "b" comparison to hear it.

You have to see the COMPLETE artwork to appreciate it.
Very nice indeed!

Yes, I do hear a big difference in sound quality. Sadly I have to live with it. I wish they included the OST cues remastered with this release. I really find demo's which are nothing more than sound sketches a waste of space.

Yeah I hated the cover at first. But the overall design is consistent and quite nice. The artist is an impressionist, which I got after reviewing the whole package. The cover art for the next two releases are better too.

I hope this okay, but since there's been so much interest in the title.

Full disclosure, I run Stitch Kingdom which was linked to in this thread. Anyway, Disney Music gave us this new video which features Hans Zimmer and The Lion King's filmmakers discussing the process of composing the music for the film.

Thanks so much for sharing this video. So one of the themes was written thinking about Zimmers father, didn't know that.

Will there be videos for other future legacy collection scores? I'm mainly interested in the Menken ones.

I'm sure there will be, especially when it gets closer to the release date.

I'm excited that some of these titles are approaching (especially TOY STORY, which I hope is expanded... although TOY STORY 2 is one I'd really go insane for).

Nevertheless, at some point, I hope they get around to TRON LEGACY - THE LEGACY COLLECTION... both because I'd love to but it but also because of the name.
