The release is limited to 3000 copies. Here comes the eagerly anticipated AMAZING STORIES - Anthology 2. This 2-CD set showcases another stunning lineup of composers for more episodes from Steven Spielberg's mid-80s television series about the fantastic. Highlighting are Goldsmith's warm and quirky "Boo!", Rosenman's powerful "No Day at the Beach" and Thomas Newman's "Santa '85" with its rich orchestral tapestry anchored by no less than three hammering pianos. The set opens with an alternate version of John William's main theme, heard only once -- at the opening of ALAMO JOBE. The album ends with a special Christmas version of John Williams' Amblin logo. The music was mixed from the original multi-track masters and result in stunning stereo sound throughout. Liner notes are by Jon Burlingame.
Great Soundtrack for a Great Movie

"The Bones soundtrack is fantastic. Snoop Dogg put together a great blend of music for this conceptual album. Aside from Snoop Dogg; Kurupt, MC Ren, XZIBIT, D-12, Latoya Williams, Kokane, Doggy's Angels, Bad Azz, Eastsidaz, and more make appearances on the compilation. The CD is one of the most innovative titles of the year and is worth the cash."

"'Bones' confirms Snoop's strength as an executive producer. He is right up there with Dre and Puff Daddy. This is an outstanding album, with both variety and continuity, every song is good. It is unlikely that anyone else could put together a soundtrack that stands alone as an album to rival any other west coast album. Snoop has the very best west coast producers (Fredwreck, Battlecat, Meech Wells) and rappers (Tha Eastsidaz, Kurupt, RBX, Kokane, Nate, MC Ren, Xzibit, Butch Cassidy, Sugarfree, Supafly etc.) at his disposal. Dogghouse Records is the new Death Row, only better."
Snoop keeps lettin me down

"This CD was a let down after I finished listening to it. The best tracks are ones without Snoop. There are around four good ones. Man, I'm getting tired of Snoop's [not good] monotonous production and generic beats. Don't get me wrong, everyone else who ryhmes on this disaster is dope and credible. If they don't have the tools to work with than what can be expected. Snoop only shines on Dre's cuts, well because the instrumental is so off the hook that you can stand Snoop! When I was a teenager Doggystyle was the dope and is now a classic. What happened to that Snoop? For real, unless you are a hardcore snoop fan you might want to reconsider this album. Why do I keep buying Snoop CD's?!?"
