In Response to:
A correct review(Thomas Glorieux)
I actually find this score to be rather interesting. Its very melodic and pleasant to listen to, and despite being rather reserved until the final track, I never found it to become boring. It manages to change moods and tempo often enough to prevent it from running together.
As for the album presentation, I personally dislike the "multiple suites" approach where the music is presented in only a few very long tracks without cue breaks. It makes it difficult to skip to your favorite parts when they are in the middle of 10-15 minute tracks.
Album: *** (point deducted for the "suite" organization)
