I got a replacement disc. The new disc is also printed with the same defect, see the picture. DON'T BUY, THEY REDUCE THE PRICE TO GET RID OFF THE BAD BATCH. wait until is fixed.
But after seeing the movie several times, I've come to the conclusion that while Volume 1 might be an overall stronger mix of songs, Volume 2 actually fits with the movie better. And as such, it has really grown on me. And now here we are, and I'm listening to this soundtrack at least as often as Volume 1 - which is to say, if I need a go-to mix of music, this is it.
And since I own an original TPS-L2 Walkman and the cassette for Volume 1, I just had to purchase the cassette for Volume 2, also.
If you're a score purist, you'll be disappointed to know that unlike Vol. 1, the Awesome Mix is not contained to the first disc. The final two tracks spill over into the second disc, and I'm SO glad they're all included, but now it becomes an issue of track skipping if you just want to listen to the score. I'm also frustrated that there was no digital edition of the score included (Awesome Mix came with an AutoRip). I'm not paying an additional $10 on top of the $27 just to digitize the score.
As for the soundtrack and score, they are both absolutely fantastic. I figured there'd be no way for them to find the wonderful mix of pop music that worked so well in the first film, but they managed to do it again. It's a different movie, so I can't compare the two directly, as they are SO integrated into the film! I think lots of the reviews were hoping for a great mix without seeing the film, and rating it poorly, as it's very eclectic and more obscure than the first Mix. However, it just worked so well with the movie, and every track brings new right back to the accompanying scene.
The score really shines here.. Bates' first volume was not bad, but with the exception of a few tracks, it's forgettable. This one is truly magical. I suggest everyone see the film, and then check out the score / soundtrack. I will have this one on repeat for the next few weeks!
Long Answer: I bought the vinyl and it came packaged really well. I was worried purchasing vinyls on Amazon during the holiday season because I know what it's like to be a mailman around this time. But my package arrived and was packed well.
Like I said above, I loved every song on this album. It's starts you off excited with Mr. Blue Sky by the Electric Light Orchestra and Fox on the Run by Sweet but then slows things down Lake Shore Drive and the Chain by Fleetwood Mac. Plenty of good songs on the first album and it ends with Father and Son by Cat Stevens which is my favorite song in the playlist.
The second vinyl is Flashlight by Parliament and Guardian Inferno which is a very cool but weird song. The rest of the songs on this vinyl are movie scores which are great but I only ever listened to in once. If you like movie scores, great! If not, well the deluxe was priced better than the standard so I feel like I got a better deal with two vinyls than I would've with one.
If you are like me and don't know a lot of these artists but really enjoyed the movie and the soundtrack, I would recommend looking into the other songs by them. My playlist has gotten huge since I bought this. Especially Fleetwood Mac.
