JWFan.net the following, I decided to hold off on buying the new soundtrack until I see if the set was worth getting.
I have both of the previous Raiders' releases and the Crusade release on CD. And I copied by vinyl record of Temple onto CD for myself. But it'd be great to finally have a reasonably-priced licensed copy of Temple on CD and have the Skull CD without having to double-dip.The Concord Music Group has confirmed that they will reissue the soundtracks to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana jones and the Last Crusade (as we reported on April 2). The soundtracks will be reissued this fall as part of a four-CD boxed set which will also include the soundtrack for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Back on topic, I remember geeking out hearing themes from the previous movies quoted in the early parts of the Skull, and my ears perking up during the bike chase. But other than that, it seemed they either dialed down a lot of Williams' music or it just wasn't his very customarily "leitmotif" work. Or possibly both. So I'm looking forward to hearing the soundtrack as soon as I pick it up.
