I actually find this score to be rather interesting. Its very melodic and pleasant to listen to, and despite being rather reserved until the final track, I never found it to become boring. It manages to change moods and tempo often enough to prevent it from running together.

As for the album presentation, I personally dislike the "multiple suites" approach where the music is presented in only a few very long tracks without cue breaks. It makes it difficult to skip to your favorite parts when they are in the middle of 10-15 minute tracks.

Music: ****
Album: *** (point deducted for the "suite" organization)

> The last track is very good but the rest just takes too long to get there,
> people seem to forget that and ignore it to give it better points.

> While a good listen on its own, background speaking, only the final track

> anyway 3 stars for me too!
