I wish Clem would take his Hook score, fly to Neverland and never come back! I'm tired of the constant comparisons to the forgettable Hook score. Play the Hook score for a group of people and see if one person recognizes any of the songs. This man has not given a positive review for a soundtrack in ages. For crying out loud, look at the review he gave for Pirates of the Caribbean. That is the top selling soundtrack and people are buying the sheet music to it like crazy. Thousands of people can't be wrong! Clem complains all the time that composers rehash or lift from their own material. But then when a composer creates new and original music, he's not satisfied with that either. I think the purpose of a soundtrack is to set the feeling for the movie and to add to the entertainment of the film. If the CD is a great listen on it's own, then that is an added bonus. But how can people trust what he says or enjoy this website, if everything he says is negative, hypercritical and over analyzing?!
