"Who's Casey ****ing Ryback?"

In a long list of beyond stupid films with thoroughly engaging scores, this one is towards the top of my favorites. I knew what to expect from an expansion, but my amazement with just how entertaining this score is will never cease. The recording also has what I think of as the best sound of all of Poledouris' '90s powerhouse action scores, with exceptional clarity for such a large ensemble.

If Intrada could have picked up the rights to this expansion, it surely would have been released years ago.

Playing this now & agree, it's a terrific score, well presented (ah, how action used to sound. ...), and a nice tribute to the sorely missed composer in the notes. I love that musicians enjoyed playing his work, due to his counterpoint skills, keeping all lines active & interesting. Now, I wonder how they feel, faced with pages of whole notes endlessly tied together or repeats for days....

I've yet to receive my copy, and judging by some of the comments in this thread I'm in for a treat.
The samples on the Varese site sound sweet especially the kitchen fight track.
Can't wait to hear this score in full.
