Agreed on all points. But most welcome is Djawadi's effort here continues his evolution as a composer. I like the score for all the reasons Christian cited in the review. I like the guitar, the rhythms and the effective use of RC scoring techniques, including the Horn of Doom. This is the type of modern scoring I like.

All the best.
