He-Man and the Review of the Soundtrack!

I mentioned the whole MOTU Soundtrack, a while back. Mine arrived today, BUT it came on a flawed disc. My copy is for some unknown reason on a CD-R Disc instead of a normal CD. I already contacted La-la-land Records for a replacement. As stated by a Representative of La-la-land Records.

If you ordered the set and received Discs with a greenish hue on the back, you should contact them.

Putting that Issue aside, here's the rant, err... Review.

Many tracks are super short... There's a few tracks that sound similar to the untrained ear, but they are different, or so I've been told.

The best use you can get out of this is to use the music to make some MOTUC Movies. It has MOST of the music used on the cartoons, from Story title cards, the battle themes, certain character themes, Hell! They even have the theme for the MORAL section... Buuuuuuut! As a child raised with the Latin American dub of He-Man, this set has this:

The $24.98 + S&H question is: IS THIS SET WORTH IT?
If you're not a Filmation fan, then this set is not for you. If you love Filmation's take on He-Man, then why haven't you bought this set already?
