Great question!
I compared tracklists from both edition and also couldn't locate this one.
So, I can imagine 2 possible variants - Barry named it somehow else, and we will know how, when we'll get CD.
And second possibility - this track was actually not Barry one! Lucia Hwong was credited as "chinese music consultant" for Barry. So maybe she composed this entire track?

Over the weekend, I took a look at the movie. I didn't hear the track anywhere in the finished edit. The track certainly sounds "chinese." I wonder if it was written by Lucia Hwong for a sequence in Chinatown and then didn't get used. Perhaps the indefatigable Leonard and Walker will explain all.

Certainly, one of JB's finest scores, that fits the movie and characters so well.
To come full circle, back to the package presentation, the new artwork looks amazing.

Someone had asked about protecting digipacks. Try Bags Unlimited.

Really looking forward to upgrading this score.

but no jewell case - just digibook

Yeah, it's not like what matters is actually the music! wink


Considering earlier releases by the label – like Tamarind Seed – this should be available as non-physical as well. So no digipack, and no shipping cool

For a while I'd been wondering how to sequence the score and source tracks on the original Prometheus release. Looks like this will save me the trouble!

Listening to it right now. Sounds gorgeous. Never heard the score before, never seen the movie.

I miss good ole film scoring. There is a reason why we keep going back to these composers...

I've only had the chance to listen to the first few cues, but from what I heard it sounds good. I haven't listened to the Prometheus in a long time, so I can't say how much better this sounds. Interesting to read in the notes the plans Barry had for an original soundtrack release of 26 minutes!

And indeed the source music and short additional cues all seem to be in the running order of the score on this release for the most part.
