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.
