I constantly hear the author refer to American Beauty's score as "clunky".
Does the author need a dictionary? What exactly is clunky about Newman's score? Clunky means "awkwardly heavy or clumsy". Everything in Newman's score seems well timed, synchronized. Rhythms are all well-defined. Again, what is so "clunky" about it?
I have a feeling the author doesn't really have a clue what he wants to say so just throws adjectives he doesn't understand around.
