Graeme Revell Rules...(Theo)
I've heard Revell's unused score for 13th WARRIOR (aka EATERS OF THE DEAD) and I'd say he's quite versatile, but too in love with the electronic "post-modern" sound.
The Jerry Goldsmith score which finally was used for the film is much better,
muscular, and thematically in line with the movie. Revell's is too modern for a movie about 9th century Vikings. Bottom line -- his sound works best for slick, contemporary or futuristic thrillers, and not much else.
