I completely argree with what you said. I was, however sad to hear that Silverstri would not uses Rick's theme from the original. I was hoping he would somehow lift it and add a new spin on it. But he did make up for it with a great brass theme of his own for Rick. It is used the best in track 9. The music from both is neither greater than the other.
I couldn't have stated it better. Bothe get ***** in my book!
