Actually, I'm still waiting, because I'm hoping that a full-edition of the score is released in the future. I really was interested in purchasing this score, even before the film's release, since, at the age of 8, I had my Mom buy me Wendy Carlos' original score. Of course, this soundtrack virtually eclipses anything she did for the 1982 film. What annoys me greatly is this new trend by record companies of intentionally omitting/segmenting the complete score, so it can be purchased in multiform ways: CD, Download, and Amazon-exclusive Download, which really gets on my nerves...honestly, it would make sense that the double disc Compact Disc version of the score (or even the double vinyl LP version as well) should have the entire score, since the CD is really a format for posterity, whereas a download is rather ephemeral and temporary...the liner notes and photography (booklet/Digital Booklet) should be most featured in the physical formats, rather than the audio-only versions (or, at least, both should feature the same work, so fans don't feel like they're being screwed). Shouldn't the customer who purchases an "actual, physical copy" of the album (meaning it had to be manufactured in a factory, employs human labor, costs more, is more durable and artistic, and helps benefit both the artists and music company) get more benefits and extras than someone who just only concerns his/herself w/ only wanting the audio, and not the entire product? This kind of thing has to stop.
It's really disconcerting to find that you could be missing tracks, liner notes, or additional artwork because you wanted the work in a physical, classic format. It really reveals the "business aspect" to purchasing/owning music, which is something you never want the buying public to think about.
