This thread is taking me back to 1978, when I turned my back on The Swarm soundtrack in the record store even though I was eating up Coma and Capricorn that same year.

I mean, come on, Irwin Allen? I loathed disaster movies, didn't even own William's Earthquake until the 90s. And all those star photos running along the bottom - no way.

But in the late 80s, I stumbled on a used cassette of The Swarm, and I listened to it all the g-d d-m time! Wow, what a fool I had been.

And then the Prometheus release came out on CD. I even watched the movie to see what was missing, god help me.

And I found that in this case, too much was just about enough!

Yes, the original album was a great representation, but there is so much great music in addition, that in this case, the repetition just doesn't bother me.
