Mine has apparently made it to downtown Chicago! It still says expected delivery date: Monday, April 1, but I'm thinking tomorrow or Friday is a good bet. Unless of course it ends up going back to New Orleans before coming back to Chicago again... I've had that happen more than once. It gets to Chicago, then somehow ends up going back to the origin facility before making its way back to me. USPS is a complete mystery sometimes.

There's actually more music than I remember. I'm reminded how long the Foot Soldier fight music is near the end compared to the Shredder fight music, which is woefully short.

It all sounds pretty terrific too, though I'm so used to our usual mastering engineers (Matessino, Fake, Schwartz, Malone et al) that I can tell when someone else has done it. Is that weird or what?

So glad to finally have it though. Bring on the sequels please.

This is really great. This the first time I get to hear this score in in such detail and scale, since I saw it in the theaters in 1990. All other times have been on VHS tape through my TV speakers.

My copy arrived today! Loving it. Here's some alternate album art closer to the 1990 original if anyone is interested.

I realise now how Waxwork offers such cheap international shipping. Dispatched on the 25th and it hasn't left the US yet.

I love it. Would I love it if it were a new score today? I don't know. But it's the sound of my childhood! The big fight and Tatsu cues evoke such memories! I may reprogram a bit -- I don't need to hear Splinter speaking, for instance -- but I'm delighted with this release.

My favorite tracks of this score are Tatsu Attack and the Shredder's Last Stance from 1:45 and onward. This track was the one I always had on repeat from the original soundtrack. Having this in complete form I have come to realize just how much I love the entire score. I write action and romance fiction stories so I always love a good action score. This score is great for writing.

Their Greatest Fears is just an awesome track. The first part captures the sadness of longing to find Splinter and to get Ralph back on his feet are felt. The second half used during the training montage is perfect. It puts me in a writing mood. I can feel the determination of the Turtles. Also, it's just a really cool track and it has that early 90s feel.

To finally have the TMNT theme is exciting. That the track could go so long being unreleased will forever be one of the greatest film soundtrack mysteries to me. This main title is filled with the spirit of the Turtles.

Another track I love is Message from Splinter. The emotions can be felt.

Battles with the Foot is just exciting from start to finish.

John Du Prez presented a score that had many different flavors. Serious action, drama, sadness, and comedy. It fits with he movie very well and sounds just as good as a stand alone.

Mine arrived in Canada last night. Gave it a spin, and it's really wonderful. I don't mind the Splinter's Tale with vocals, and really like the alt mixes at the end. Album art and design are also great. Although it would have been nice to have liner notes - I'm thrilled to have this on CD. Having it and the OST on CD are great.

Looking forward to Ooze! I imagine the release will be similar focussing on vinyl first, and then CD second. I will happily order from Waxwork again. All around great service. I liked that they included a little business card inside saying that you're order was filled by "insert name", a nice touch.

All around great release. I have mixed feelings about Splinter’s Tale I and II having vocals. I like both being on there with vocals however I wish they would have included vocal free versions as alternate tracks at the end of the soundtrack.

With that said this is still an amazing release. No complaints or regrets about it.

What id your guys’ favorite tracks?
