The Mummy score vs. The Mummy Returns

Let's be blunt. I preferred the original Mummy soundtrack, and was very disappointed when I heard the Mummy Returns soundtrack. I really can't see the cause for the hype and the gushing comments from eveeryone.

I think that you have to decide whether you consider a soundtrack as good because:
1. it complements the movie, OR
2. it sounds good on CD.

The Mummy Returns may sound good on CD. I do not dispute that. However as a film soundtrack, I consider something to be lacking. When I watched the movie, I constantly found myself wishing for more from the score. It seemed a little too repetitive in parts. And in other parts, the music didn't reflect what was happening on the screen!

Obviously everyone has their own opinions, but for me Goldsmith's Mummy score was so much better than the Mummy Returns.
