I won’t pretend to have been reading filmtracks.com for a long time, but from some of the comments I’ve read on other posts, it seems that in the past some people attacked Clemmensen for his lack of research in a score and now he does more homework to review a score.

Let me say that when comparing Clemmensen’s site to Goldwasser’s site they’re comparing apples and oranges. [Someone might have made this point as well.] If you want to go behind the scenes of a score, go to Goldwasser’s site. If you want a well thought-out and thoroughly explained review of a score, keep up with Clemmensen’s site.

Soundtrack.net is more of a “check out how the scoring world is” type of thing and Goldwasser does occasionally do his own reviews but not as thorough as Clemmensen maybe because Goldwasser has a tight schedule to attend.

Filmtracks.com is directed more to the average reviewer. Sure, we don’t know much of anything of what went on behind the scenes of a score. It’s interesting to read about it, but tell us what the score contains and how it works in the context of the film, then conclude whether it’s good or not and the reviewer has done his job.

In my honest opinion, the behind-the-scenes stuff is interesting but the score itself is what interests me more. I want to know whether it’s a good listen and a good buy or if it’s something I should avoid.

Why do I write this? I guess I’ve been reading too much about the tension between the two hosts’ sites I’ve mentioned. I felt like throwing in my comment about the mud-slinging.

Both websites have their functions. I can’t really do anymore comparing then that. I enjoy them both.

P.S. Keep the reviews a-coming, Clemmensen!
