Well worth getting the 2-disc version,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Phantom of the Opera (The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (Audio CD)
If you know you want this soundtrack and are trying to decide between this version and the one-disc version, it is WELL WORTH the extra $6.50 to get the 2nd disc. I thought that the second disc would contain mainly score from action scenes, without much singing. I was wrong: The 2nd disc has just as much or more singing as the first, and in my opinion all the most poignant moments are on the 2nd disc. All of the intenseley emotional singing that happens after Raoul and Christine declare their love (Christine's fear and uncertainty, her prayer at her father's tomb, the Phantom's anguish, the final showdown in the Phantom's cave, etc.) The songs on the 2nd disc are the heart of story and go much deeper and darker than the showcase songs on the first disc. If you are looking to re-create the movie experience at home, you will cherish the 2nd disc in this set as much as the first.
