None of this is to say that the rest of the score is only average. NOT

I liked the finale to "Sommersby", I thought that was a great way to end the score, I havent seen the film, but the score is my fav. (I just ordered CutThroat Island a couple of hours ago, so with luck I'll have it in a week). But I like how most of the score is in the minor, and then the last two tracks are rather major, its a genius move by Elfman!
