I can't believe you would try to pretend that you weren't saying that you are more intelligent than others in your first post or your later posts. That is ridiculous.

My initial post was not so much about the merits of the Inception score, I was expressing my frustration at the "dismissive statements" that people such as yourself make and sure enough you chimed in with another statement that provided a perfect example of what I was talking about.

You mentioned that you have no problem when people love this score, well, similarly I have no problem when people hate it. What I have a problem with is when people make arrogant and dismissive statements as if they're opinion is the only intelligent one. I feel that with inception this is a major problem at Filmtracks because this negative sentiment is buoyed by the rather scathing review by the editor of this site. The intention of my post was to show that other experienced film music listeners (I won't say more experienced than you because I am unsure of your history with scores - I'm sure it's immense but i'd assume your not a member of the IFMCA) have been impressed with the score. I also intended to link these positive reviews but decided it would be unfair to the editor/reviewer of this site, although I would happily do it if asked.

I am not pretending this score is great. Personally I'd give it 3.5/5 on album and 4/5 in the film, which is probably towards the more positive end of the spectrum of opinions (disregarding the many filmgoers who seemed to love it but probably haven't listened to it on album). Like I said, my initial post was not about the merits of the Inception score as much as it was about my frustration with the arrogant presentation of opinions as fact (I didn't actually state my opinion of the score - I could have hated it for all you knew at the time).

Hope thats clarified a few things and I hope you can understand that given what this thread is actually about it was quite annoying (yet sort of funny) to read your initial response which was a prime example of what I was talking about.
