Agreed. Action scores are what sucked me into film score collecting. They fire my imagination, awaken my fantasies and improve my mood 10 fold. I love a good sweet sounding quiet score, one with lots of themes, but action scores are the bread and butter. Christian somestimes says "avoid it if..." and then talks about loud action and deep brass. Granted, some people may not like that, but anyone who buys this album expecting anything other than brass and loud action is simply stupid. That would me buying the soundtrack to "Sweet November" expecting a grand theme and a massive 100 piece orchesrta and crescendos. It just doesn't happen. Imagine LOTR without the loud brass, feverish strings and massive thematic material?
