I'm a huge George Romero fan.For those who don't know but might be interested chronologically this is the 3rd film in the series. I've wanted this soundtrack for quite awhile, and was overjoyed last week when I discovered it was finally made available. True its not as memorable as the Dawn of the Dead soundtrack(s), but it is still pretty catchy. I'll admit I wasn't familiar with tracks 3 & 5 both of which are very good. I still feel track 6 should have been broken down somehow into several tracks because of the length (just my opinion).

Definitely a must buy. However.....
I bought the cd version. This is manufactured by Amazon. Honestly, I was disappointed when I received my copy. The disk itself is purple and says "Various Artists George Romero's Day of the Dead" The cover looks good. However the inserts are lacking greatly. I was hoping for pictures, some informational about the production of the soundtrack, some text, really anything. But there's nothing other than a track listing. Same with back insert. Exact same information as the insert. I don't know much about audio quality, but it sounds good to me.

I would would recommend just purchasing the mp3 version (it doesn't contain intrusive meta data at least at the time of this review), as there is nothing special about the physical cd version , like I thought there would be.

As a big fan of the George Romero film Day of the Dead, and its soundtrack, I was excited to finally get it on CD. I think the music in that film is brilliant, moody and perfect for the film. In many ways plays against type in that it's not your typical "horror movie" soundtrack. While not as anachronistic as Goblin's Dawn of the Dead score had been, Romero was still pursuing a creative and experimental vision (in terms of film and music), and achieved it here. Frankly, he's never done a film or a score since that's been as good as Day of the Dead. This is for Romero the equivalent of what John Carpenter achieved with The Fog

Unfortunately, THIS CD is the bonus CD of the two-disc set, which includes extended tracks and unused portions of the score. It's interesting, and I'm glad to have it, but what I was looking for were the themes used in the film -- some of which is here (particularly in the final track), but most of it is mixed in with what appears to be the original compositions, which includes vocals. Yes, these are actual songs with singing on nearly every track. That was a surprise.

Again, this is cool to have, as I had no idea these were initially composed like traditional songs with vocals, however it's not advertised as such. There is a two-CD set out there that is not on Amazon. I want the music I heard them in the film, not just a CD with early mixes or remixes.

To that end, I'll be returning this and purchasing either the pricier 2-LP set or 2 CD set, which includes the entire score as it played throughout the film.

The other downside to this is that there are no liner notes (which the LP set definitely has), and it skips or doesn't play at all in my car (I imagine because it's a somewhat cheaply produced-on-demand CD-R).

The sound quality is great overall and includes most of the tracks from the movie. However, the track "The World Inside Your Eyes" is not the instrumental version which is what I was expecting which kind of ruins the track for me other people might not mind it but I did. Same with the track "If Tomorrow Comes". However all the other tracks are there and sound magnificent "The Dead Walk", "Escape Invasion", "Break Down", and of course "The Dead Suite." Overall it's a great disc and if you like the movie and any of the music in it you should pick this up.

Great Sound Track! The music is excellent and has a Caribbean flavor to it. The closing song is my favorite!
