I can see your point that the Children of Dune doesn't climax as one might expect but there's two reasons for that. 1) I was disappointed with the "climax" of the mini-series itself. It was fast and pretty anticlimatic, though I did still think it worked. 2) The tracks on the cd are out of order, therefore, as a listening experience it may be a better mix of styles, but all the action material from the last parts are interspersed throughout. Anyway, I love this score as well as all of Tyler's music. Check out this website for more on him:
