It's a fun little score, and while I thought the original release was more than sufficient (as I almost always do), it was marred by dialogue and sound effects. I have received no confirmation that it has been removed for this release, but I can't imagine that it has NOT.

Are you joking? Both Dan Goldwasser AND MV confirmed there was no dialogue in the FSM thread you asked in. How did you miss that?

Ended up snagging this one, especially since it was on sale (also threw in Outlander for $1.98. Decent score, and an awesome film... you can't go wrong with vikings and aliens and John Hurt and Jesus from Passion of the Christ... what a coincidence!). Awesome to have the album with more music, without the dialogue except for the songs, but the biggest bonus of all: The Big Top Finale instrumental bonus track! That right there has been a grail for me. Will be glorious to hear that in full without the lyrics (as fun and goofy as they are). The clip already sounds awesome. Kind of the same case for me when the Nightmare Before Christmas had the disc with the instrumentals of all the songs... the score is just better to me in it's purely instrumental form.
