Yeah, it is worth the upgrade. The expanded Intrada disc isn't a revelation, but the additional music is fine and it sounds great.

And if you don't like the synth approach fine, but that whole "the score is anachronistic to the period" is silly. Ben Hur's score is also anachronistic to the time period. So let's hate that one too, right ? big grin

Love the expanded version to one of my favorites. Just wish the short cue when the team measures the finals basket(forget the actual name) didn't have so much hiss.

The new addition I like most is the first training montage ('First Workout'), perfect wakeup music. smile

I already asked it but I am very undecided about this one.

I own the old release and I am very happy with it. Should I upgrade to the new release?

I would like some review from someone who owns both releases because I am tired rebuying scores I already bought in the past.

If you're like Thor, there's no reason to get it.

If you're like most of the rest of us and want a full representation of a score, including a lot of very lovely bits simply not even hinted at in the original album, get it.

If you are a fan of this score, then this release is an excellent upgrade. The softer moments, especially the cue, "Someone I Know" really round out the album and make it an excellent listening experience. This still remains one of my favorite Jerry Goldsmith scores. Yes, the synth parts are cheesy and sometimes distracting, but the main theme is vintage Goldsmith. I was ecstatic to get the full score for this and the upgrade is highly recommended, but it all depends on how much you really like this score. I feel like the softer moments really help improve an already great score. Now bring on a complete Rudy!

This is one of those Goldsmith scores that I didn't warm to initially (waiting to hear the sound of Mr Marshall hitting the floor).

I recently found the TEF CD in a bargain bin and loaded it onto my iPod, and wow, I'm listening to it quite a bit now and really liking it. Guess I must pony up the money for the Intrada CD, LOL. wink
