Original sounds fine - I happen to to be all for dynamic range and no compression.
However, this particular soundtrack has a bit of extra Shawn Murphy bass. I typically love his mixes but it’s a bit bloated and the bass is a too much at times and doesn’t play nicely with my Thiel 3.6s, despite extensive bass traps in my room.
Likely a creative decision which will remain unchanged. Won’t complain if the sonics are improved though. Either way, can’t wait.
Yeah, one of the more curious Murphy mixes, like a preview of his weirdly bad early 21st century.
I'm happy to support La La Land and the continued release of Horner remasters. I never got around to buying albums of things that had been released before I started collecting so I have very few originals.
While I've never been the biggest fan of Brad Silberling's films, I can't deny that they generally tend to have excellent scores. I'm still waiting for some label to release the full version of Thomas Newman's Lemony Snicket work.
