I must disagree with the reviewer. I love a good movie score, too, but I also enjoy other kinds of music. I beleive they should have released 2 seperate albums for this film: The complete Horner version and the other version with the pop stuff. It would have been nice to cater to two seperate audiences seperately.
On the commercial release, I love the dialogue, alternative music (and even the rap) and the songs I don't care for, I skip past. As a huge fan of the movie, I enjoy being able to hear the dialogue. Also, if I were a kid, I might think that it wouldn't be cool to listen to the parts of the album with the Horner score.I have a life-size picture of some kid blasting the Horner score from his bedroom stereo, (yeah, sure). It's all a matter of perspective. I love the Promo as much as the commercial release and can enjoy both equally.
I also disagree with the review in that I thought the Horner score was fantastic! It was fun and whimsical and perfectly fitting for the scenes the music accompanied. The music fit the characters well, too.
I love the movie, the music and the costumes and creativity and I especially loved Jim Carrey's interpretation of the Grinch, (very much like Dr. Seuss' own version in the cartoon "Grinch Night").
