High Quality, but Plain
on September 19, 2014
I'm feeling conflicted about the "deluxe" vinyl edition of this OST. On the one hand, I got exactly what I wanted, which is a vinyl copy of the best mix in years. On the other hand, we've got plain black discs (which is fine) with rather plain labels, housed in plain white paper sleeves, in a gatefold package with absolutely nothing special or "deluxe" about them. I admit that I kind of wanted a quote from James Gunn on how the soundtrack came together, what they were shooting for, just some information on a brilliant soundtrack. Instead, all of the inside space is filled with the same tracklisting as found on the back, except now with production credits and three photos of concept art that have floated around the Internet for years. I still love the soundtrack, and the pressing is very nice and high quality, but I guess I wanted more... frills.
