Amazing Score! Packaging not what I expected,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Man Of Steel: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Limited Deluxe Edition) [Soundtrack] (Audio CD)
I was trying to decided if I should get the standard or the limited Deluxe Edition. In the end i decided to get this version and was pretty excited as I loved the music in the film and was particularly looking forward to the Man of Steel sketchbook on the bonus disc which is well worth the purchase
My Only issue with this (It would have been 5 stars as a product otherwise) When I read 'steel book' packaging I expect to get a steel book case like you do with other collectors/deluxe editions. Instead the CD case is made from glossy card made to look like steel.
To be honest as Limited Duluxe/collectors editions go, there isn't anything overly amazing in this package - 2 post cards, a very standard booklet and a digital download ticket.
That aside the music itself is easily 5 stars, Hans Zimmer has done an amazing job of capturing the emotion, power and excitement you would expect for a Superman Movie and made it modern and current.
If you are buying it for the music then you wont have any issues and will love it! Just don't buy it expecting anything special with the other extras.

Hi, I think the UK edition of the Deluxe Edition is a digi-pak, while the US release is the steel case.
Amazon have the US edition, which is the copy I ordered, hoping that it is the steel case edition Man of Steel
Hope the info helps, I could be wrong tho lol

I ordered the US edition as well. Amazon confirmed that it is the metal case, also it can be seen in one of the customer uploaded images. I am awaiting mine to arrive next week :)

Is the steel edition still on sale on Amazon? Link?

It appears to be this, as this is now the link I get when I click on my item in my order:
Man of Steel
It appears as if the Amazon.co.uk stock has run out and now itīs only available from US sellers? But in doubt, do ask Amazon to clarify whether this is indeed the steel edition. It does seem so, also from the photos.
