It was a very clever review. Clemmensen has obviously read the book and also understands more about Zimmer's mode of operation than most. This score is not impressing many people outside of the fanatical Zimmer collectors, not because it's bad music, but because it doesn't fit the film.

I read the book and this music is exactly what the books needs.

Perhaps I'm a fanboy, but Clemmensen is a Zimmer-hater hidden into his "I respect Zimmer" mask.

A re-hash of Crimson Tide is what this book needs? I think not.

Clemmensen has given **** or ***** to over a dozen Hans Zimmer scores, including 4 top-rated reviews in a one year span from 2003-2004. How exactly, then, can you define him as a "Zimmer-hater"?

Agreed.

He can't. Fanboys are illogical by nature. This kid in Spain keeps posting under different names. Ignore him.

Illogical is rate this score "as heard in the movie" without Have been seen the movie.

And of course Clemmensen has rated zimmer scores with 4 stars, but he attack with personal arguments his scores.

you can't rate a score with 4 stars as head in the cd and say it's simple.

Clemmensen got rid of "as heard in film" ratings three years ago. Now he rates the score itself ("as written for film") and the album presentation ("as heard on album"). It's really a simple concept.

Aside from that, the movie is so faithful to the book that cross-conclusions are easy to make about the score's merit for the story.

That's because he doesn't agree with Zimmer's methods. Many people don't, these days.

> you can't rate a score with 4 stars as head in the cd and say it's simple.

I'm not even going to try to address that moronic statement.

How does anyone know whether it fits the film? The film hasn't been released yet!!!!!
