Yeah, I can appreciate that. However, I feel that edits just rarely sound any good. That moment in Jurassic Park is fine when hidden among the sound effects and such, but I would think it sounds really awkward and abrupt when listened to alone. Another problem with that moment in Jurassic Park, I think, is that the music is taken straight from "Journey to the Island" (or the end credits music), and if the viewer remembers it from earlier in the film (a scene with a completely different tone), it will be jarring on another level. I also feel that it's disrespectful to the composer to put such material on a CD. If the director wants to chop music apart, fine; it's his film, but can't the CD release preserve the composer's intent? I know I'd be pissed if somebody did that to my music and put it out there as if I had composed it that way. Also... I think editing is a budget solution that's a poor substitute for asking the composer to rewrite a cue. New writing can produce wonderful results. Take "Binary Sunset" from Star Wars. Wouldn't it be too bad if Lucas had just pieced together some inspiring statements of Ben's theme from other parts of the score instead of asking Williams to write the now classic cue for that scene? By the way, I hope you didn't pay anything for that "special edition" set. It's only a bootleg based on DVD rips of the film. Yes, of course. The prequel music is just hacked to bits. It amazes me. I've actually lined up a few film edits with original recordings and found that there is no difference in length, and all the "hits" are there - meaning there was no reason whatsoever to make changes to the music.
