No, not the score.. that is, I've yet to hear it.. I guess it's good tho. I generally like HZ's scores where he really takes the lead rather than having one one of his MV-clones take on the project. No: what's REALLY fascinating are the reactions here! Terrific! Freud really would've loved to live these days, rarely does one see such a flock of nincompoops! Freud could've written whole series of books on his studies of "soundtrack-listeners".
Remarks like Clem having to go is as nincompoopness as I looking through your window -for free-, complain about the color of your furniture and then command you to leave your own house!
Next there's the neverending reli-ppl who really can't understand we're just listening to music here.. just violins, some brass, some wood, some more and some pretty melodies.. get a life for xxx's sake... (yes, I DID say xxx, and I love to say xxx here!)
Also, there's no accounting for taste! Howard Shore gets more awards for his LOTR than he can carry around, yet I really have troubles to stay awake listening to that boring stuff. Others can't bare Goldenthal's avant-garde, while I rate him very high (and esp. Alien3). Others find HZ's synths in Gladiator complete p00p, I don't mind the synths. Others are bothered by the synths in The Forgotten from Horner, while I think it's one of his most haunting scores. Bottomline: one likes blue, one likes red, one likes purple.. live with it.
