I can't pick out anything in Mr. Clemmensen's review where it explains why it deserves a 2 star rating. Its mostly just explains the story behind the score, but little on the score itself.
I've had this CD since its release, and I've had time to listen to it more than a few times. It is a very pleasant and sometime exciting listening experience, that doesn't fall into unlistenable noise. Each cue is contructed
as a piece of its own with an occasical central theme to tie it together. It is also a little of something new & different from the composer (actually Zimmer did some irish jig things in his score for "Fools of Fortune" but that was ten years ago!!)It is also something unique to the majority of movies out there, I mean is there a score like this? I don't think so. So that makes this score a bit above adverage. From what I understand Mr. Clemmensen also mentions that the theme is a rip of Titanic! Well I own Titanic, and am very familiar with it.
And the only thing simular is its use of bagpipes and other irish elements. Bagpipes can only play a certain amount of sounds, so its of no suprise that some irish melodies on bagpipes sound somewhat familiar. There is no direct rip off here.
An Everlasting Piece is a inventive and unique that is surely above adverage s, that offers a pretty good listen experience on CD, and a score such as that does not deserves a below adverage rating. The score deserves at least a 3 star or a 4. It is ingenius but not briilant. My only real gripe is the amount of information in the packaging. There is nothing mentioned about the film nor the proscess of score the film. (what Mr. Clemmensen's review should have been used as).

An Everlasting Piece (as heard on CD) ****
