Because I am such a fan of Hans Zimmer's music, I bought this score two days after it was released. But I was a little depressed after the CD stopped because I wasn't that impressed with it. I was really hoping that Hans Zimmer, MASTER OF ACTION MUSIC would try his hand at horror. I figured that with his eletronics and some vocals, he would give a knock out of a score. But what he had written was melow chamber music.

The reason that I didn't like the music was not Zimmer's writting. Not at all. The score is genious. But I had to see the movie first. I just rented the movie last night and after watching it, I realized that Zimmer couldn't write Danny Elfman horror music, it wasn't called for. Instead, he wrote a beautiful peice of music that represents Hannibal's unsual tastefulness(No that wasn't a joke) while keeping the errie side of him toned down.

My original thoughts on the score were *** stars, but after seeing the movie, I give the score ***** stars.

The music is genious.
