LOST: Not one but TWO soundtrack releases for season 6!

That's right. There will be the official LOST Season 6 soundtrack set, consisting of two discs... as well as another, limited (5,000 copies) release of "LOST: The Final Episodes," another two-disc soundtrack album, as announced last night on the Varese Sarabande website:

LOST's final season contained just too much great music from Michael Giacchino for a single or even a double CD to suffice. It was clear at the recording session for the series finale that our treatment of this historic television saga demanded an unprecedented final soundtrack release. In total we have chronicled LOST's final season with not one or two or even three CDs full of music, but a full 4 discs, featuring five hours of music! Lost: The Last Episodes now joins our previously released Lost: The Final Season to conclude our presentation of music from LOST's final sixteen episodes.
Link

I for one am thrilled. I've been a huge fan of Giacchino's work since discovering ALIAS nine years ago ... and have been an even bigger fan of his work on LOST! This, coupled with the reported release (finally!) of the LOST Encyclopedia this week ... well, it's like Christmas in October!

Oh HELL, yeah. I LOVE Giacchino---especially LOST.

Now I have more things to put on my Amazon wishlist.

Awesome. Totally awesome. I have all the others.

Question: Is the second album only available through Varese? I couldn't find it on Amazon.

As near as I can tell, the second album, "LOST: The Final Episodes" is indeed only available from Varese Sarabande.

Re: LOST: Not one but TWO soundtrack releases for season 6!

I've been debating whether to get the Lost soundtracks lately, and been paying close attention to the music as I rewatch the series currently, but ultimately it seems kind of underwhelming when you compare it to, say, BSG's varied and amazing music, which I listen to all the time. I mean it works in the context of the show, but doesn't seem to me like it would stand up as well on its own. I may end up just getting a select few tracks I really like individually on iTunes or something (Life and Death theme for instance.)

Re: LOST: Not one but TWO soundtrack releases for season 6!

While I'm not surprised there's a second album coming out considering music from three episodes and the majority of "The End" is not featured, I am surprised it will also be a two-disc set. I'm also a little annoyed by it's limited release nature.

Side note: I'm amused how this album is constructed just like Doctor Who's recently released Specials soundtrack. Three episodes covered over the course of the first disc and the mega finale covers the second disc.

Did the Doctor Who Specials album finally come out?

Limited edition? Argh. By the time I'm able to get it they'll probably all be sold out. *crossing my fingers* they won't be...

Yup, it came out earlier this month and the season 5 album comes out early next month.

Re: LOST: Not one but TWO soundtrack releases for season 6!

It sounds to me like they're squeezing every drop they can out of us, but dammit if we won't all fall for it. The music for this series has been amazing, and I know I'll never be able to live with the regular release that is missing so much from the last few episodes. I especially want all of those haunting themes from Across the Sea.

Re: LOST: Not one but TWO soundtrack releases for season 6!

Sidebar: I was at Barnes & Noble today and spotted several copies of the LOST Encyclopedia for $45.00 (!) It was gorgeous. Lots of full-color pictures throughout, and plenty of tidbit-y things that you might have missed while watching the show.

Now, off to Amazon to see if it's cheaper there!

Re: LOST: Not one but TWO soundtrack releases for season 6!

I have reservations about this. In particular most of the music I really liked from The End is available elsewhere in the Lost CD's, it's just a matter of knowing where to look.

Well obviously it's a move being made to take advantage of the vacuum left by the series ending.

Nobody is being forced to buy it though.
