I'm sorry you didn't get this score, I love it. I think it's a work of genius, and I am one of the people who DEFINTELY listens to this score for the pure enjoyment and admiration. They won't win the Oscar, but they should. Should have for Yuma too. Long overdue for these guys.

Predictable fanboy response   Sunday, February 28, 2010 (3:39 p.m.) 

> I'm sorry you didn't get this score

Time and time again, any reviewer who disagrees with fanboys like you "didn't get it." Clemmensen has reviewed thousands of albums, so I'm sure he "got it."

> Long overdue for these guys.

Beltrami has a long way to go before he deserves an Oscar. The same to Giacchino, but he got into animation instead of horror so he'll have five Oscars before Beltrami gets his.

First off, not a "fanboy." I don't think he understood the intention of the creation of the score, and what purpose it's trying to serve. It's trying to achieve a VERY specific sound and it succeeded wonderfully, is a technical marvel, and few composers would have been able to pull off this type of avante garde, think-outside-the-box type of effort instead of making a pleasing-sounding album. These two guys did their job; they did what was asked of them incredibly well. As far as simply enjoying listening to the album, I realize it's not for everybody, and that's fine, I don't care if someone else doesn't enjoy it, I just care if I enjoy it. Having the narrow-mindedness to find it such an oddity that someone would "enjoy" simply listening to what technological strides are possible with electronics and how they can be utilized to created a wholly unique and innovate sonic landscape is disappointing in a reviewer. Not being able to praise a technically and stylistically triumphant score simply because it's not fun to listen to for the reviewer, singling out those who enjoy it as a curiosity, irks me. Also simply having reviewed a certain number of scores doesn't mean anything in regards to having the ability to criticize objectively or efficiently. Quantity does not necessarily equal quality. But seriously, "it's curious to ponder what type of individual could use it for the purpose of enjoyment"? Who cares if they do? If they get pleasure out of listening to a piece of music, ANY music, LET them. Focus on the score and not the other "type of individual" (how about just other "listener"?).

If you don't want people to call you a fanboy, then don't post a subject line with 'Hahahahaha'.

You must have read a different review than I did, because Clemmensen makes it clear what the intent of the score was. You're forgetting the fact that he reviews the scores as albums rather than in the films. I've heard this album and it sounds like sound effects, not music, so it doesn't matter how well it works in the movie. It's a pointless musical album and that's why he gave it one star. It looks like most voters at Filmtracks agree too.
