Hello Mr. Critic! Are you Mad?   Thursday, June 7, 2001 (2:55 p.m.) 

What is wrong with this score? Other than the choppy track 8, the M:I-2 score is great. It achieves the high action impact that is the style of the movie and what Zimmer was going for. Are you culturally deprived? Also, I don't appreciate the slander about music for 13-year-olds. This is a terrible stereotype. My nephew is 13 and enjoys classical music. The Mediterranean guitars play a wonderful love theme. The way that Zimmer mutes the sound in the movie in the Seville scene is marvelous. And the hard rock rendition of Schifrin's theme fits in the movie. Basically, your review sucks as much as you say this album does!

Oh, no. Don't turn this into that Harry Potter discussion.

Someone needs to look up the word REVIEW.

"The discussion, or essay, on one's self opinion."

Look, if you don't like his opinion, I don't really care. But please do remember you can't change someone's opinion.

Alright, folks...   Wednesday, June 13, 2001 (5:37 p.m.) 

I thought Drop Zone was crap. After listening to it for about a year, i got used to it. Same with this score. The very first reaction of mine was anger. I was really pissed off! I'm a fan of Danny Elfman, I like his M:I 1, although it is far away from a perfect score, but I anticipated a lot. I was looking forward to hear the M:I Theme with Zimmers touch: heavy strings, Gavin Greenaway choir and aggressive percussion. The sad thing was, I got the score before I saw the movie... it ruined it for me. I remember I was close to tears after my first listening of the "fresh posted" score.
About the score itself:
it is DIFFERENT. And that's the only pro I can give. As one of those hardcore Zimmer fans, I enjoyed Track 10 with it`s choir elements, just to fall into a pit of hard, simple WRONG played E-Guitars.
Now, after a long time and after Pearl Harbor and Hannibal, I'm a little reliefed. Zimmer is not sick any more...
M:I 2, rating

Mission: Impossible
Those damn drugs...   Monday, July 2, 2001 (6:38 p.m.) 

Sorry, it's me again.
I just saw the M:I2 poster and as always, I sigh.
What a great score could have been composed by Hans. But, let`s face facts, he blew it. Big time. This is definitly the worst, stinkiest "work" he's ever done and HOPEFULLY he'll ever do.
Hands away from guitars and drugs, Hans!!!

Personally, I take Pearl Harbor as an apology.
Alright, let's bury this score deep, deep in our backyards and erase it out of our minds.

Aah! I feel lighter now... it works!

We are all human beings. As human beings we all make mistakes. Zimmer is not a musical GOD, he is a human being too and makes mistakes. You cannot expect him to create "the best score ever". Remember Newton's Gravitational Law

EVERYTHING THAT GOES UP HAS TO COME DOWN

Same thing applies with Zimmer's musical career. Zimmer loves Rock Music. He said in an interview that he enjoyed working on rock scores like Drop Zone. This is a rock score. So people BEWARE. Dont touch this if u dont like rock scores.
