Just as I have been pleasantly surprised by Zimmer's versatility in his many works like Beyond Rangoon, Black Hawk Down and Matchstick Men comes this horrible, watered down "epic" score from Hans and his MV collaborators.
I have listened this score many times now and I find no musical qualities that I can appreciate or even tolerate. The only dim highlight of the score is the brief main theme and even it sounds so lame when compared to many previous MV action themes.
This score carries Crimson Tide's tradition in being the one of the most unlistenable film scores in history. More scores like this and all we get in the future are song albums.
At what point meaningless noise become music? Or in reverse: at which point you get only meaningless noise when you try to create music. Zimmer, please consider these questions before your next project.
