    You can find it in-store in some areas but YMMV. You can grab it from Discogs for not outrageous prices.

    Edit: @allegate beat me to it
    thank you. will buy the black one then = )

    Trent don't CD, bruh. It's never coming out in the U.S..

    I ordered my copy from the UK the week it was released and it got to me in like a week. Crazy to see it getting all these awards because, for me, it's easily their most boring score by a mile. Mank, Bird Box and Waves all have much more going on as a whole. Soul isn't bad or anything, it's just nowhere near as good to me as every other score they've done..

    Really, it's much more of a Disney decision whether or not the soundtrack becomes available on CD - your advice to @Helpmeiaminhell still stands though, because if Disney didn't put it out on CD in the US by now, it ain't happening.

    I knooow, I was just making a tongue-in-cheek joke. But yea, no issues with the UK CD pressing; you'll probably just wait a little bit longer for it to arrive from overseas, is all..

    1. They're only responsible for half the score, so keep in mind it's the combination of both them and Jon Batiste.

    2. I think I mentioned this in the Mank thread, but part of what's important isn't just the music itself but its use in the movie. Waves uses so much other music that you rarely hear the score, Bird Box buries the score way low in the mix, and Mank also mixes the score fairly low with the exception of some of the more music video-y moments. But similar to The Social Network, the music in Soul is doing so much of the emotional storytelling, both in the real world and in the soul world. So many sequences and moments feel like they're being driven by the score, rather than the score just hanging out and doing light work in the background. I love the score as a standalone piece of music, but I agree it's nowhere as impressive as something like Mank; that said, I think Soul is one of the best examples of TR/AR's music playing an active and important role in a movie.

    Exactly, I bought the UK CD score and, to be honest I don’t even know why anyone would want the vinyl of half the score as it works as a whole so well. If I listened to just the TRAR or Batiste stuff I feel I’d be missing out

    THIS. I decided to watch Soul before listening to the score, and I was just blown away with how it carried the soul world. I could hear/ feel all of the little nuances that TR/AR have used over the years. Their fingerprints were all over it, and it was just so enhanced. I'm not sure it would have had the same feel/ tone to it if someone else was in the driver's seat. And maybe I'm biased, I dunno. Credit where it's due with Jon Batiste as well. I'm not a jazz fan, but I found his work to be incredibly receptive. I took a jazz history course in college, and it isn't something I normally go for, but Soul had something for everyone in the human world.

    With Soul I felt like I was listening to part of the movie - it was part of the experience/ part of the dialogue. I can't imagine the movie without that component. I didn't get that feeling with Mank.

    Acceptance speech for the Variety Artisan awards (I think) for both Soul and Mank
