Update 10/31/2010: I regularly check my site statistics to try and get a better feel for which posts are the most popular on the blog. I noticed that I was received a lot of traffic coming from people searching google for "The Thing OST". I decided to check my download statistics also, and was surprised that this is the second most downloaded album on the entire blog. I wanted to update this post because I realized that I had posted a 128kbps MP3 version, which was all I had available at the time. Since then I have managed to acquire a version of this in a much higher bitrate of 320kbps MP3, and have replaced the old download link with the higher quality version. I am also in the process of uploading a few different bootleg versions of the soundtrack and score. Once they are complete I will update this post once again and add the link to each of those bootlegs to this post.
