I have to agree. And as good as he is, Mr. Clemmensen has low tolerance for what he names "wierd" music. I sometimes think he wants everything to be the same. He can be positively merciless when it comes to experimental music.

Yes, exactly. And with Elfman scoring probably every other superhero movie coming out soon (besides X-men II), where else will we get somebody at least trying to do something radically different from your average superhero score?
