> I have to say it's a boring score !

While I respect your opinion, I have to politely disagree. This was quite a wild ride for me the first time I listened to it, between the tracks The Cortez Ranch and The Train. There are a lot of soft moments of musical progression that are most likely points where people are speaking or a plot event is occuring in the movie. The soft music is very well arranged, and I had as much fun listening to it as I did listening to the action music. But then, that's just me.

Here are a few suggestions about how to make the music a bit more interesting:

1) Watch the movie and see how the music fits in with it. When a listener can tie certain musical themes to certain distinctive points in the music, it provides a better listening experience.

2) Listen to the themes throughout the album and see how they progress to make listening to it a complete and fulfilling experience.

3) It often helps to do something else, like surf the internet or play a Windows game, while you listen to a film score. That way you don't get the urge to do something because you ARE doing something.
