Comments about the soundtrack for King Arthur (Hans Zimmer)
Boring, boring, boring

Boring, boring, boring   Monday, August 9, 2004 (2:40 p.m.) 

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.

What a waste of time...

It's all a matter of taste. To me Crimson Tide is one of the best scores ever released, and I was very pleased with King Arthur which follows the same awesome line.

Zimmer is da man!

Didn't you Zimmer fans were crying all the time in the past years that you want the old MV style, like in The Rock and Crimson Tide?
