a consistently enjoyable listen

Personally I've found this to be one of his best works in some time. His scores for Batman, Batman Returns, and Mission Impossible have been his best thus far, with a decent production for Men in Black. If I were to place this score, it would lay right under Mission Impossible, but not by much. I've consistently enjoyed listening to Planet of the Apes, and being a Paul Oakenfold fan, the last track remix is a treat. The title track and track four are my personal favorites, however. I do strongly disagree on the three stars that were originally given to this score, but I have disagreed on a few scores as of late. I found that the lambasting that Gladiator, and more recently, Harry Potter, have gotten to be unwarranted. But oh well. I will recommend Planet of the Apes to any Danny Elfman fan, whose been waiting for another quality score for quite some time. So enjoy...
