The word J.S.L. meant to use is "overrated" or "underwhelming" (sheesh) and Priest's soundtrack is neither. 2.5 ratings are for garbage scores. Priest has excellent themes, but its sound mix/quality is its best feature. Maybe you need to hear it apart from the awful movie: that's how I've been listening to filmtracks' five-star scores. I'm always blown away by the outcome. You should get the soundtrack in its best condition.
