Hmmm...I only own 3 of Tyler's CDs so far...Children of Dune, Darkness Falls and Frailty. All 3 of them are distinctly unique, and not one of them are boring. Darkness Falls is a frenzied piece, Children of Dune is majestic and epic, and Frailty is a disturbing score with an amazing main title.
I look forward to getting this score with the hopes that Mr. Tyler will grow into one of Hollywood's most sought after composers.
