I like how you can defend the sound quality of the Sony Return of the Jedi and then just a few weeks later dismiss the sound quality of Delerue's Something Wicked as atrocious. I don't know. This release hardly has perfect sound but it certainly isn't in such bad condition that it's distracting to listen to.

I recall remarking in the Jedi review that ALL the albums for that score sound bad. Each suffers from varying levels of muted ambience and other artifacts. On my system, the Sony ones seemed fine, despite all the fans' complaints about them in relation to the 1997 RCA version.

By comparison, Delerue's rejected music for Something Wicked has sounded infinitely worse than Jedi in all of its forms (other than the re-recording, of course) due to the "lost" masters. I can't stand listening to it, in fact. The Regarding Henry portion of that album is fine, though.

I guess different ears (coupled with different audio systems) respond differently to different perceived faults. I just didn't find find this Universal release of SWTWC that bad.

Considering how many fans have been clamoring for releases of both the Horner and Delerue scores for so long, I must say I found both of them a bit underwhelming after the hype.
