Of the crime of film music covetage, we find you: GUILTY. (Boom.) GUILTY. (Boom.) GUILTY. (Boom)...

Hey, leonardpart6! Got a spare $120? The mad archiving geniuses at Film Score Monthly's CD soundtrack division have created an 8-CD set of the music for the first four Superman movies -- John Williams's amazingly iconic work for the first film, the originally only barely-released II and III scores by Ken Thorne, and the never-released-at-all score for Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, by Star Trek's Alexander Courage -- plus all of the source music composed for the films, PLUS Ron Jones's music for a 1988 Superman Saturday morning cartoon that I didn't even know existed.

This is ridiculously archival, the work Lukas Kendall And Co. have done, and the music's all remixed and remastered to an extent similar to the 1997 re-releases of the original Star Wars scores. It's about as definitive as you can get. Wow.
