I will sometimes judge a soundtracks quality by the number of times my foot starts to move or the number of times I get goosebumps.
Put a pair of good headphones on, turn out the lights and just listen to the music. It also helps if you have seen the movies.
If Annie Lennox does not give you goosebumps when she hits "... on the horizon...", then you have no feeling left in your body. You have become numb.
I just want to add Congratulations to Mr. Shore on 3 wonderful and "precious" soundtracks!
