Comments about the soundtrack for Megamind (Hans Zimmer/Lorne Balfe)

Edit | Delete
Decent but throwaway score, no more than three stars.

I agree with the text of your review...but not with your rating. I did not find any tracks in Megamind that warranted a repeat listen; they were all pleasant but I won't be revisiting them anytime soon. I find it interesting that you give this score the same rating as the far superior Chicken Run, and a higher rating than Robots, Bolt, either Ice Age score or Horton Hears a Who! - all of which are more consistent, contain memorable themes/highlights and are better developed over greater length when compared to this little album.

And I know I have this score rated as **** on my profile as well, but that simply reflects the smooth listening experience (and I'm looking for a reason to knock it down, because I don't feel it deserves those four). A score with this little substance should, from a reviewer's PoV, not get more than ***.

Or, to put it another way: this score is equal to the sum of all three Pirates of the Caribbean scores? Nuh-uh. No way, Josť.

Even Despicable Me had a more engaging score...a shame it hasn't been released commercially.
