Well, this is not a complete "review" of John Debney's expanded score. If I tried to talk about all of it I would be repeating myself. This score album can be summed up in one word: INCREDIBLE!!!!! This score is truly a Masterpiece and one of my top favorites. The first disc contains most of the original album's cues and throws in a few unreleased ones. The second disc is truly, in my opinion, the butter of the bread. I love the cues "The Battle" and "Dawg's Demise". Everytime I listened to them in the original album I was left begging for more. My prayers have been answered. The second disc contains these two cues combine with two other unreleased cues. Title: "The Battle / To Dawg's Ship / Morgan Battles Dawg / Dawg's Demise / The Triumph." The track runs over 17 minutes long!!!! HURRAY!! Dawg's Demise / The Triumph are also a bonus track without the chorus and sounds just as great.
