Say what you want about the movie, but the soundtrack is one of my favorite records. I love every single song. Xanadu and Magic are my two faves by ONJ followed closely by Suspended in Time. Anyway, I had to live with the awful Aussie CD for many years. I was grateful when the U.S. release finally came about but, sadly, it is horribly compressed. I had finally hunted down a copy of the Japan release and was pleased with the audio. At this point, the only other CD release that I was aware of was the UK one so I figured I'd might as well nab it too. It just arrived today. I was expecting the UK one to be the same as the U.S. but it isn't! It has great bass but looks to be compressed a bit but nothing like the U.S. So, four different releases, each one mastered differently. What's the collective opinion on these? And, is there another version out there that's worth searching for?
