I've read some bad stuff about the sound quality of this expanded release. Would anybody care to comment?

I haven't noticed any sound issues either, except in the end credits suite - I'm too lazy to dig out the liner notes, but I expect they were taken from film stems or something. They're just a rather harsh copy & paste suite of film tracks anyway, though the beginning is nice to have because it features the choir bits without the orchestra track and you can hear details in the choir writing that get completely lost in the full mix.

 

The expansion is no revelation though. The album had plenty of filler stuff already, and aside from one or two nice moments, the expansion mostly adds more of that. And the film versions of some cues are also much inferior to the album versions - I'm looking at you, Red Route I.

Thanks guys, it seems I'll stick to the OST based on your answers.

 

I have the album and find it a pretty good listen. There's really nothing missing in terms of highlights, although the album does end a bit abruptly. The sound quality is fine to my ears (un-remastered as it is).
