I miss somthing fundamental in this CD. Soundquality is good ofcourse.. but I don't hear any dynamic in the themes. It's almost as if JW definily needs a filmscript/character description to make a dynamic score.
It's all bright/heavy/brassy/tinkeling, like the heavy parts from many of his soundtracks. Problem to me is that it's this heavy style and only this heavy style I hear.
For Olympic/American music it's for sure good. But I wouldn't recommend it to the real soundtrack audience. The few tracks from Minory Report I heard sofar made more impression to me, far more impression!
This is all IMO ofcourse, and JW is still my no. 1 for scores.
