Wait a minute, why are you reviewing the score you reviewed last year you might ask. Well, turns out, this is a new exp&ed 2CD version called The Rogue Cut released by Sony. So what is The Rogue Cut? Well it's a new version with 10 additional minutes of film. Well, the 10 additional minutes of film apparently warranted a new exp&ed score & that to me is a complete & utterly positive surprise. Usually we'll have to wait years before some exp&ed version might arrive, but someone thought differently & that person is now my hero. More of this please! It so happens I quite liked the original score which was quite lengthy in itself at 69 minutes. The Rogue Cut exp&s on that by 42 minutes, which is no small feat. So what is different? Well, some cues are split up. For example, ‘The Future - Main Titles' from the original score is now split in two so you can hear both cues separately. I love it! There are some br& new cues like ‘Xavier's Plan', ‘Trask Hearing / A New Era', ‘Clothes Off / Goodbye Peter' & a bunch of others. So this is exciting! Let's see what The Rogue Cut has in store for us.
It opens up with the magnificent ‘Main Theme' which is heroic & bold & of course contains the main theme created by Ottman in X2 which is short but sweet. The best cue on the original score was ‘Hope (Xavier's Theme)' & it probably still is the best one on The Rogue Cut. It is such a beautiful cue. It's one of those slow building cues with a super theme & lots of ostinatos. Think Hans Zimmer's "Time" & a lot of others. It's one of my favourite types of cues & Ottman really brings the awesome with it. Again, I love how they split up ‘The Future / Main Titles' into separate cues, if only to have the great main title on it's own. ‘The Future' is not bad either, a sort of ambient heroic theme. I completely forgot, but this score has some very nice choral music as well. Maybe not as much as Powell's X-Men but still, it's dark & delicious. So some new stuff with ‘Xavier's Plan' which is an interesting "investigative" cue. Ok, so it's not super exciting, but it's still good.

There's one thing though, one thing I didn't expect & that is the fact the I liked it a lot more last year than I do now for some reason. Even the cues I rated 5 stars like ‘Paris P&emonium' feels more like a 4 star cue now. Furthermore, the new material isn't helping much except for few st&outs like ‘We Need You' & ‘Charles n Charles', but there's one cue in particular which is quite fantastic & that's the 5 minute long ‘Saving The Future'. That one deserved to be on the original score. It's a great action cue, energetic & fun. The other great Rogue Cut only cue is ‘You're Here!' which is basically a more developed version of ‘Hope (Xavier's Theme)' for the first half. They've somehow managed to remove one of the better cues of the original, ‘Time's Up (Film Version)' which is a shame. The good thing is that they have wisely removes the two songs that was present in the original album & focused on score only.

Should you get this exp&ed edition? If you loved the original, then yes, you probably should. I loved the original album but found out that I didn't quite feel the same for some cues, but most were right on the money. As for the new cues, there was ‘Saving The Future' & ‘You're Here!' that was more than good enough to be on the original album. It's still a really good score, one of the best in the X-Men series, & that's why I recommend you check out The Rogue Cut.
