Seems the music snobs are beginning to rear their ugly heads. Songs, pieces, cues, wtf does it matter what you call something? I've been around colleges enough to know that silly vocabularly really only pisses off the kind of people that I enjoy pissing off. Anyway, Double Trouble is a song so oops, now you look like an idiot, James.

Anyway, my guff with the review is how back handed its praise it. It's like he's saying "I love it, I love it, I love it, but it's not that good." And his negative remarks are rather silly - I mean in general I think most music reviewers are musically numb, but come on, can this guy really be this easily displeased? Anytime Williams even remotely steps out of his box he's there to point out how weird and awkward that makes him feel. Personally I felt the jazz and baroque to be excellent additions to the score, yet I assume it's these two elements that warranted his comment that the score doesn't hold together well.

Anyway, Williams wrote Hook a long time ago and decided then and there that he wasn't James Horner and so wouldn't be writing Hook again. Hook is great. Potter is great. Which is better? Don't care. They're both two of the best musical worlds to walk into that I know of.
