Comments about the soundtrack for XXX (Randy Edelman)

Terrible sounding synths

I'm a fan of Hans Zimmer and other MediaVentures composers, so I'm used to the sound of synthesizers. But the ones Randy Edelman used for this score sound like CRAP. Additionally, there is nothing original about this score - it's a bad interpretation of THE PEACEMAKER and Trevor Rabin's action scores. During some of the unreleased music, you can literally hear note after note taken from THE PEACEMAKER.

It's a worse offense than PIRATES or any of James Horner's scores, because Edelman is not just copying himself, but others (unsuccessfully too). 2 stars for effort, 1 star for the result
