    When I read that this title was about to be released I was ecstatic! Unfortunately, one of the last tracks from the soundtrack portion is missing (in the old CD it is "And He Shall Smite the Wicked"). Additionally, the track Sanctuary in this new edition doesn't match the real scene of the movie. I suspect that somehow an error of editing might had happened just before releasing the CD. This is very unfortunate since this is certainly Alan Menken's masterpiece. The only consolation is that I still own the old soundtrack on CD and I can always listen to the missing score track. I hope Disney Music Emporium will reissue the Legacy CD with a corrected version and offer a free exchange for those who already purchased this edition.

    I love the Legacy Collection, and hope they continue to produce them for other Disney material. This is one of my all-time favorite Disney films, and this compilation is a fine one. Get it before it is impossible to find!

    Great soundtrack! Has all the music from the film except missing the reprise of Heaven’s Light and the last part of “And He Shall Smite the Wicked” which is the chase and fight that takes place on the balcony. But otherwise, it’s wonderful!

    Jon Lorenz and Patrick Dailey's reviews are spot-on. I have anticipated this release since the Legacy Collection began, and I'm thrilled to have the previously unreleased score cues. But to include multiple similar demos of the same songs, plus the two songs from the German musical that are most similar to their English counterparts ("Out There" and "The Bells of Notre Dame"), while eliminating an existing highlight of the score and skipping the best deleted song ("As Long As There's a Moon") in favor of one that already exists in a similar form in the current stage musical is amateurish, and a disservice to the superfans who are the only audience for this collection. Looking forward to the next release of this soundtrack...

    One of Disney’s greatest soundtracks now given a long overdue release on the fantastic Legacy Collection. Love the quality, all the demo tracks and the thoughtfully crafted booklet/CD jacket it came in. Please keep making more albums in this collection, I’ll buy them all!

    Nice to see that the Legacy Collection continues. I see the other reviews are complete enough that I don't need to add any comments. What would be nice going forward is to make it possible to have a storage case to keep the newer releases in. I've got the original 12 discs which are stored quite nicely. But the last 3 releases as just kinda laying around.

    Would have been 5 stars, but for the missing material. This was my most anticipated release since the Legacy Collection was initially announced years ago. It is fantastic to finally get the full score (well, almost) in film order. Also welcome - the acknowledgement and inclusion of a few recordings from the excellent German version of the stage show. DISNEY, if you are listening, one of the most exciting features of the Legacy series is the newly recorded versions of deleted/alternate songs, as you did on Mary Poppins and others. It would have incredible to hear English versions of the incredible songs from the German version not in the film or the new stage version, like 'Balancing Act,' 'Out of Love,' and the German version of 'Someday,' or at least the cut song from the film "As Long As There's a Moon,' strangely absent here. Also absent from the otherwise complete score - one of the most exciting passages in the score, the last few minutes of "And He Shall Smite the Wicked." The only reason I can surmise is that they just ran out out of time on Disc One and said "Oh well, just cut the rest." This is particularly strange as Disc Two devotes much space to multiple demos of the same songs, while eschewing demos for other cut songs like "As Long As There's a Moon." If this had been a 3-disc completionist edition, I'd give it 5 stars. As a 2-disc edition, better curation would have made it feel sufficient and worthy of 5 stars. If you're a fan of this, you're gonna buy it. And you'll probably buy the expanded edition when it comes out later.

    There's an error or glitch on track 11 (first disc) around the 1:50 second mark. Also, others have noted, "I noticed these, too, when listening to the album last night on Amazon. I believe #1 and #3 are legitimate choices in order to showcase as much Alan Menken score as possible. I'll explain. The Esmeralda introductory music that's in the film (and in the "The World Outside" track on the Legacy album) differs from the version that's been on the "Topsy Turvy" track all these years on the original album. The one that's always been tacked on in front of "Topsy Turvy" is more robust and has a definitive ending whereas the film one is more pared down and trails off because it's meant to only be the few gypsies that are playing as Esmeralda dances. The Legacy producers probably decided to keep the soundtrack version in front of "Topsy Turvy" so it wouldn't be lost. Although I, personally, would've made it its own brief bonus track on disc 2 instead. As for the "Heaven's Light" reprise, I went back and compared the Legacy track ("Escape") to the same scene in the film. We're actually getting unused score in this track. My suspicion is that the scene originally played without the reprise and was just score, running a bit shorter. Then late in production, they decided to add the reprise and had to extend the scene to make it match. This explains why we have so many back-and-forth cutaways from Quasi to Esmy and Phoebus kissing. Some of those shots are late inserts. The commentary helps back up my theory because they mention that Tom Hulce's first version of the full "Heaven's Light" song was in a very high falsetto that they felt was too extreme, so they had him re-record it. The reprise you hear in the film I believe is taken from that first outtake of the full song. So the Legacy album producers were probably faced with, "Well, do we give them some never-before-heard Menken score or use the edit the film has?" I think they made the right call in giving us the original score, but like the issue with #1 above, they should've given us the complete falsetto "Heaven's Light" as a bonus track on disc 2. Another thing I noticed is they included the brief introduction to "Heaven's Light" that's always been on the soundtrack but never in the movie. Unlike the mess they did with (two versions of!) "Part of Your World" on The Little Mermaid's Legacy album, the segue from the score to the album track is more seamless on Hunchback. The "Cyclone" part of "And He Shall Smite the Wicked" is actually restored to the Legacy album which I was honestly shocked about. The snafu the Legacy album did was the track ends with Frollo chasing after Quasi and Esmeralda onto the balcony with his sword. Everything from him sneaking around the balcony all the way through to his death is completely missing on the album. In other words, the entire balcony climax. This issue is unforgiveable and has to be a slip-up in editing rather than a deliberate choice. This is what I believe happened: the producers decided to give the balcony climax its own track (which would explain why the "Wicked" track ends with reverb rather than being randomly cut off). But due to mislabeling, things got shifted around. On the Legacy album, the track labelled "Sanctuary!" isn't the sanctuary scene. It's the scene with Frollo crashing the court of miracles. Then you've got "And He Shall Smite the Wicked" which is the sanctuary scene and doesn't even include the part of the climax where that line is uttered. So I believe the intention was to be something like this: "Mine at Last" (2:19) "Sanctuary!" (8:02) "And He Shall Smite the Wicked" (1:47) And instead, the first track got labelled as the second, the second got labelled as the third, and the third track completely fell by the wayside. When I got to that error last night, it ruined my listening experience and had me steaming so much that I was only half paying attention to the bonus content that followed it. Disney needs to fix this pronto, and if the error made it onto the physical disc version, they need to offer an exchange program. And I, too, don't understand why we didn't get "As Long As There's a Moon." It's one of my favorite deleted Disney songs and, honestly, I like it even more than "In a Place of Miracles." I was really hoping we would get a clean version of "Moon" since I have a laserdisc rip that contains all the crazy sound effects of the gypsies trying to put up wedding decorations. One curious thing I noticed is that the demos we get of "Bells of Notre Dame" and "Hellfire" are actually the first versions with unused lyrics, but we don't get the later demos we got on the laserdisc that are closer to the film versions. Since we got multiple demos of the other songs, it's a little odd we didn't get multiples of those two. Also, "In a Place of Miracles" is the pure demo from start to finish and it doesn't have the recorded dialogue from Tom Hulce, Kevin Kline, and Paul Kandel that's on the laserdisc; it's Alan Menken saying those lines instead. In good news, though, in addition to the unused score during the Esmeralda and Phoebus kiss, we also get unused score during Quasi and Frollo's first scene together when they're reviewing the alphabet. There's more unused score during Phoebus' "She stood up for you!" scene with Quasi. And the opening "Bells of Notre Dame" includes the melodic bells you hear during the "Walt Disney Pictures Presents" title card (the soundtrack version only had silence in between the chorus and the big blast of music). The two inclusions from the German production are random. I love the German show, but that's already got a cast album. Either throw in that album as a disc three to this thing, or leave the two tracks off."

    I'm pretty much in the same boat as other reviews. I love that this got a Legacy Collection release but find it strange that it is missing material present in the original CD. I hope that this can be changed, but the release is otherwise great.

    I really want to like this album, but there are many things that keep me from liking it. Like a lot of customers are saying, in spite of this supposedly being the complete score, the score isn't really complete. For example, the music that plays during the final battle between Frollo, Quasimodo, and Esmeralda is omitted which is frustrating because it's on the original release of the soundtrack. Plus, I could do without the demos to "A Guy Like You". I like the song fine, but not enough to want to listen to the demos. So please, Disney, rerelease this Legacy Collection album with the issues that me and the other customers have with this album fixed. The artwork is beautiful as always though.

    Hello Disney Music! My name is Marília Souza and I speak directly from Brazil. I would like to congratulate everyone involved on the wonderful release of the "complete" (yes, in quotation marks) and remastered soundtrack of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" for "Walt Disney Records: The Legacy Collection". The most beautiful, powerful and daring soundtrack in the entire musical canon of "Walt Disney Animation Studios" to date, has finally been rightly recognized and delivered expanded to the public, but... sadly, this release has serious errors in track organization, with "Sanctuary!" ending on the Judex Crederis section of a track, and then the actual "Sanctuary" cue coming on the next track "And He Shall Smite the Wicked." The musical climax of the film (the final Dies Irae choral and the end of Frollo) is completely omitted from the album! I confess I was so disappointed! (Hence the quotation marks mentioned above). Disney, please you need to fix this and reissue the album with corrections, ASAP! Because MILLIONS of people adore this soundtrck and it's not fair let it be kept in this disorganized form that was released. Only in this have you sinned! (and have sinned TERRIBLY) Please Disney, as a company with almost universal scopes, you need to take your works more "seriously"(humbledly opining). Even more THAT masterpiece. I and millions of people around the planet who have been waiting so long for this release, appreciate and look forward to your repair to this album. Have a good afternoon! Note: You could include in this fix the instrumentals of each song in the movie (like "Out There", "Heaven's Light / Hellfire", "God Help The Outcasts"...) and the demo of "Heaven's Light" and the demo 2 from "Hellfire" (those demos that are included in the bonus from the Laserdisc version (I think it's from Laserdisc) of the movie). All remastered like the others in the album. Would really be P.E.R.F.E.C.T! Without having to complain. I almost forgot! Don't forget to add the demo of the deleted song "As Long as There's a Moon" and Tom Hulce singing "Heaven's Light (Reprise) on the track "Escape". Once again, thanks for your attention!
