I remember seeing the film (in an actual cinema) when it was released and loving it.
Then I heard the Troost promo some time later and thought 'weird...where's all the great action and suspense music?' (Folk took no credit for his stuff in the film credits).
It was some time later when I learned he had ghost scored it, and then Intrada put out that 2CD promo of Robert Folk Film Music and his 20 minutes worth was included.
It's the Troost stuff I will need to get to know when I buy this baby.

I prefer the Troost music myself, it may be lower energy, but it has a lot more character.
The Folk stuff sounds derivative to me, does nobody else hear both Die Hard and Aliens in 'Graboids after Val'?

I really like Troost's "Rec Room" cue.

Folk is a great composer but probably pressured for time he had to follow some temp tracking - Die Hard is the more obvious but you can also hear other stuff (even Nicholas Pike's Critters 2) - not that it sounds bad but it can be a bit distracting. On the other hand some of Troost's action music reminds me a bit of Mad Max 2... possibly temp tracking was an issue for both composers.
But very happy this score is released in complete form with both composers music.

Been working my way through the extras on Arrow's new blu-ray and the music featurette is well worth a watch.

That's next on my to-do list for that set. I watched the movie in 4K (which looks AMAZING!) and the 30 minute documentary.

I did, however, watch the 20+ minute on Goldsmith's score on the new 4K release of Total Recall, which was neat to watch. Same with Craig Safan's interview on Arrow's new edition of The Last Starfighter.

Loving the release!! I wonder if a Tremors 2 release is a possibility? Watching the film, wouldn't mind owning the set as well MV wink

Just picked this up as I've always loved the movie and the score. To quote Folk from the liner notes "I wish we had shared a credit as our combined efforts resulted in the over-all unique character of the score." I couldn't agree more!

On that note: Has anyone here taken a stab at sequencing the tracks on LLL's set that approximates the "chronological" combinations of both composers' scores? I know in the liner notes it states of lot of Folk's music was cut up and tracked in various parts of the film as well as the included stingers, making a true sequence not possible from this set. That said, if anyone has put together a rough chronological sequencing, I'd love to see it!
