I'm a little wary of all the praise for "Finale". The references to Zimmer's themes are clever but ultimately Rossini is the one responsible for the enjoyability of the track. He wrote all that great overture material. I'm confused why Clemmensen chose to give the score another star based on the track alone, it's just a placement of a famous classical piece that used to be the theme song for Lone Ranger. You don't have to work very hard when a dead composer has done most of the work for you.
