Nice review Christian, and for the most part I think you hit the nail on the head. The one thing I felt compelled to point out though, is in reference to your comment at the end about the 4 songs. While they may not share any musical similarities with the rest of the score music, they most certainly are related to the movie in thier messages. The Regina Spektor cue also feels very appropriate right at the conclusion of the movie, much like the Imogen Heap song in the previous film. It's quite evident that these songs weren't just slapped on to give a more commercial feel to the score, as they all relate to the story, and specifically the emotions the main characters are feeling as the movie concludes. Like I said, not a major gripe, but definitely something that I feel you missed in your review.
Again, a nice review of what is an excellent soundtrack!
