Appreciate Elfman's low-key, experimental approach to capture the Mideast vibe, eschewing cliche, but in regards to this review's comment that there is no ethnic representation in the score, I do hear an oud in tracks like "Titles" and "To The Prince's", and portions of the intricate, lopsided synth rhythms are decidedly Arabic.
