Check the above product info and be advised: this is not the 'official' release, it looks like another 'burned-on-demand' CD-R of the music from the 'real' disc. Yes, the price is about half, but for fanatics, you may want to pick up the actual factory-pressed disc from another internet source (including Alan Howarth's official site). That version is limited to 1000 numbered copies.

This disc was released in September, 2009, but it claims to be the 30th anniversary of the film...which was released in 1981. So what's a couple of years, anyway?

The original Varese Sarabande CD is out of print, so this is very welcome and presumably timed to coincide with Rob Zombie's remake / revision of Halloween II, released in August, 2009. The original material is remastered, so it's a lot crisper and cleaner. And unlike the remastered discs for The Fog and Escape From New York from earlier this decade, these are not tweaked with new sounds or tones, nor are the track lengths altered.

The bonus material consists of six 'suite' tracks that present the complete and original score in chronological order, including some overdubs and subtle tones that try to match what you heard in the movie. This is a real gem for fans, who often long for a score as it is (or was) presented in a film. It gives the disc a welcome continuity for the creepy cues from the power due of Carpenter and Howarth.

Another very reverent package in line with previous re-releases on the Ahi label of Halloween III (also highly recommended), Prince of Darkness, and They Live. I would not be surprised if they released another version of the original Halloween score, this time with chronological suites and more of the 'original' sound.

The boogie man is going to get you! Just the word "Halloween" alone made you believe it could be made into a good movie. As for John Carpenter's original "Halloween" it couldn't be further from the truth. But with it's success, comes the sequel(s). And low and behold, born was "Halloween II." This is a great soundtrack. To me, it is superior to the original. Not in terms of composition but in overall production. Carpenter got to go into a studio and make a really, quintessential soundtrack for the "Shape" Micheal Myers. It is virtually the same music, but more amplified. I recommend owning this CD to accompany the original.

As for this re-release (during the time of the dreaded Rob Zombie version), it's an expand edition. It has a host of additional tracks, with various differences. All sounds great. It also allows one to example different takes and how composers come up with their final work.

Overall a great CD. I only counted it as a 4 out of 5, primarily because it mirrors the original too closely. If it was a different movie and the original didn't exist, then it would've been listed as a 5.

Okay, so I just purchased this new audio cd (on Feb.6,2012), because I love the Halloween II soundtrack. The disc is fantastic. It sounds fantastic and eerie and is truly chilling. The problem though, is that Amazon needs to make a note to people that the cd that it provides images of is not what you will be getting. Instead, you will get some reprint CD that simply has the cover of the pumpkin. The packaging, back, insert, and stamp on the disc are all by ioda (digital done right). It's bland and there is no Halloween design or art on it anywhere. What disappoints me, is that I was excited to get a disc with a pumpkin on it and a cool insert with Jamie Lee Curtis on it. Now, I know the original printing was only 1000 copies, but Amazon makes no note that you will be getting some reprint cd. How was I supposed to know that the 1000 copies were up? So, I'm keeping my cd, because what truly matters is the disc. But, in terms of an advertising issue, this is a big fail and dissapointment.

Well, I had the vinyl of this the mid 1980s. Had the Varese Sarabande cd in the late 1980s. This soundtrack was always my favorite out of the first three Halloween movies. The first cd Halloween II release sounded well, but always a little flat. Finally I see this remaster come along, and man I got real excited!!! Finally got it from amazon, and my ears were serenaded with beautiful crispy remastering, that I waited 20+ years for. Halloween will always be the best of the first three movies, but there are times I like II better. The soundtrack for Halloween II in my opinon surpasses that of Halloween, Halloween as well as its soundtrack always will be the original. Halloween IIs soundtrack is just better Carpenter/Howarth work, they got it right with this one. Sharper edges, better riffs, than the original, but the Halloween II soundtrack kicks backside big time. Well, with the great remastering, this remaster is a well deserved Carpenter/Howarth treat. No linear notes, due to its special limited pressing, but who cares, my favorite never sounded better. Carpenter/Howarth fans, or fans of this music, genre must own this remasterd release of Halloween II. I swear when I listen to this I feel like I'm in the movie...............Awesome remaster, FINALLY!!!!!!!!
