After several listens I must conclude that Zimmer has created an excellent score. It is strong, robust, militaristic, driving with a very moving main theme that resonates and unifies the score. I believe this approach was well considered given the dark and unromantic retelling of the legend. The integration of vocals and choral greatly added to the listening experience. Like most of his contemporaries we hear 'echoes' of his previous works. I have never been critical of this phenomenom whether it employed by Zimmer, Morricone or Horner. We are attracted to the composer's "sound" - instantly recognizable, endearing and providing comfort and familiarity. Thank you for the forum.
