Ok, it still makes no sense to me why the people who enjoy listening to and collecting film scores (of which there are precious few of us) get SOOO emotional and high-and-mighty about certain composers and scores, when everything is about opinion.
The thing that people take for granted around here is the fact that Christian is simply writing his own opinion of a score, but also writes it in a way that is very researched.
The hard part about giving a score a rating (1-star or 5-stars) is that people just start bitching about how many stars he gives it. If you don't personally agree with it, so what??!!
Personally, I agree with everything Christian said in his review...however, the only thing not factored in is the simple "enjoyability factor." The score for Face/Off has many problems, but in the end it's still a very fun listen, with some great sounds and action cues. Original? NO. Smart? NO. Fun?? Yep!!
