Reviewer makes many assumptions

This review of Johannsson's score rests on so many assumptions about what film scores should be like, I lost count. Scores have to have themes. Characters have to have themes. Scores have to have a "coherent musical narrative." Talk about your rigid music theory. Johannsson is suddenly justly famous among the public, if not so much the "film music critics," precisely because he is breaking all these rules. I, for one, have heard enough scores in which each character has a theme. Etcetera.
