Now wait a minute. While it may be in 2008's Top 5, those 5 were all 3 star efforts when you look out the bigger window of 10-15 years of modern film music.
And if you compare Desplat's scores from 2001 to Now, you can tell Benjamin Button is somewhere in the middle.
I would also agree with a 4 star rating for Bejamin. But because of the cheap soft paper packaging the score comes in, I would take away a star from the package as a whole. Perhaps thats what Clemmensen did.
