Yet it is sold as a standalone album. When you buy a score CD, you don't get the film along with it. Therefore, even as the music may work extremely well in the film, it doesn't mean that it'll make a particularly good album, which is the form of the product you'll be buying. So of course it needs to be reviewed as a standalone composition. DUH!
