Okay so lets get things clear, there's the 'original' soundtrack from 1983, and the 'remastered' soundtrack from 2003. The remastered should really be called 'remixed'. If you buy from this listing you will get the remixed version. Its not as good, its 'funked up' to make it more modern but it fails. The casual listener may not be bothered but while some tracks are a little different, Tonys theme is dire and Dance Dance Dance is so bad its comical to listen to. I'm happy to have both but if you care about the film and soundtrack you need to find an old CD recording to get the proper original recording. Confusingly they both have identical covers but look at the backs in my pictures. The original has two scarface photos on the back, barcode on the left and 1983. the newer remix one has one scarface picture, barcode on the right 1983 AND 2003 on the back. All this is assuming someone hasn't swapped discs. If you care about your soundtracks you need the original one its noticeably better.

Although this was never really one of the best 80's soundtracks, there are a few tracks here which would rank high in a list of the best themese from 80's movies. Paul Engelmans Push It To The Limit is an overlooked soundtrack gem and Tony's Theme by Georgio Moroder sends shivers up the spine (and is very similar to tracks he produced for The Never Ending Story a year later).
What let's this release down is (as many have stated here already)that all the tracks have been 'updated'. This is not just digital remastering but tinkering with the oiginal tracks so that the aforementioned Push It To The Limit starts with a very 90's/00's dance beat which dates the song moreso that the original from 1983 would have done. This has been done to very track apart from the two instrumentals.

There is likely only minimal demand for this soundtrack so a rerelease of the original mastered album is unlikely. As most tracks have a latin flavoured dance beat anyway, the addition of sampled beats make most of this sound like the type of thing you hate the Eurovision Song Contest for.

Brilliant album, the intro music 'tony's theme' is slightly different to when its in the movie.I've played it numerous times, don't think i could get fed up with it it's a classic sound track.
