How can you rate this 1 star?   Wednesday, February 13, 2008 (7:24 a.m.) 

This is not a score "equiped" with a huge orchestra or nothing like it, itīs basically electronic but it works SO WELL on the film...How do you rate this 1 star?Does a score need a large amount of instruments to be good?I loved the film and i'm a huge fan of Newton Howard's music so OF COURSE i will buy this album as soon as i can. You shouldn't rate this one star,itīs a "crime"!The Academy Awards are no example but this one they got it right, it will not win the Oscar but it was deservely nominated. Congratulations Mr. James Newton Howard!

He gave it 1 star because he hates ambient music (check out his review for Traffic, which is a 5-star score in my eyes). Also, he doesnt watch every film for every score he listens to. Which is a MAJOR POINT, here. Watch the darn movie, and THEN review the score.

I completely gree with you, the score works so well in the film. I loved this because it was so dark and moody - JUST like the film, yet he slates it for being mood in the review. Again, WATCH THE DARN MOVIE and then rate it. You can just give ambient stuff 1 star cos you hate it, what kind of unbiased review is that?!

I found Michael Clayton to be an intricate and fascinating score, and it deserves a lot more than 1 star. It fits the film, it carries the emotions, it's more than serves its purpose. And well done Academy for nominating it, its great.
