Howard Shore's score to Silence of the Lambs is still my personal favorite, but Zimmer's score definitely ranks at the bottom of the three. Zimmer did an adequate job, but not especially wonderful. Elfman's score contains ferocity, tenderness, and terrifyingly real motifs that add up for an extremely stirring and wonderful album. I'm quite impressed with this score and am ashamed in not only Clem, but in you dissing one of Elfman's most wonderful dramatic achievements ever in scoring.
