The Jumanji Expanded Edition is very thin in sound. I am sorry I bought it.

It is actually worse than – ‘Field Of Dreams’; as none of the tracks stand out in order of dynamics; the commercial presentation of the album is better in sound than the latest release.

The original presentation of the commercial album had improved dynamics / clarity.

(When I compared it to CD 2 – I thought you might have used the same album master; but nope – it was the new master which was used – hence; it had the same thin sound as the complete score).

If you people do not believe me – then please compare the ‘Intrada’ release to the commercial album tracks against each other in Audacity Software.
You will see the HUGE difference.

I ask all of you who worked on this:
Why are you people mastering the CDs so thin?

You did this with the – ‘48 HRS’ scores – and it seems to be the new trend.

In order to beef up the sound; what I do is I overlay two tracks together to get an improved presentation – in terms of dynamics – as I stated – the volume knob can only go so high; and the mastering process on this new presentation is very thin.

I am not sure how to post images online; so I am unable to provide you with a screenshot of what I mean – but the sound is incredibly thin.

I shouldn’t need to overlay two tracks together; in order to get the dynamics that this score deserves.

What are the politics involved in mastering the CDs so low?
As I had asked earlier on – could it be the hiss?

HISS; is quite easy to remove – and you don’t need to master the CDs so low in volume to get rid of the hiss.

PLEASE.
Your presentations were much better ten years ago.

I am concerned if – ‘Firefox’ – was to get released – would you also master that score so imperatively low in volume??

I for one really enjoy how this one sounds! Most impressed with the suspense material, surprisingly. Horner really got creative with this one. And it's so funny to me how many moments of the score sound like a precursor to Harry Potter (A Pelican Steals the Game, for example)

Intrada will probably re-release it later with improved sound. They do that a lot.
