I don't think it's worrying at all. To be honest, I usually do that. I find that film music has two purposes. First is to serve the film that it was made fore and second to live independent life, and for some listeners, to revoke memories of the corresponding film. I usually find that some tracks are excellent for the scene, but not for my ears.
Even when it comes to classical music, especially recitals, I give myself luxury to skip some tracks. That is one of the advantages of listening recorded music over live performances.
GK, please don't get me wrong, I agree that HZ could do things MUCH better, and hope to see extended edition one day. My guess is that HZ did not have enough time. I heard him, in more than one of his interviews, that he is having problem with deadlines.
