While I don't agree with Clem's fawning over Goldenthal's style vs. MV (to be fair, I'm sure he's over it by now), His statement about had the score been as brutal as bullet frenzy or stylish as S.W.A.T. Sticker, it would have been far better is spot on.

There are passages in Bullet Frenzy and That Cop Stole My Car that are just tingling with brutal action music, and SWAT Sticker is certainly a lot of fun, but the rest of the score is.... ugh. What is really the difference between Don't Shoot Me Baby, The Fascist Shuffle, and Three Chords in Two Minutes? All three, and others, prattle on without doing much of anything, simple rythms that sound like a second-rate John Powell. Very uneven album. If the 70's aspect had been ditched, Goldenthal would have fared far better
