That, my friend, calls for a dark score. Not fanfares the whole way.

Eh, perhaps, but I find the score as heard on the album is a dreary and sonewhat boring affair that gets you excited then drops you down quickly. Then it tries to get you up again.

And, no, I don't need fanfares to much as just more involving music. I'm in the minority here, but I just don't feel touched by the magic. It's not a BAD score, it's just not exciting enough to me.

But, it does fit the film, which is the purpose of the score.

> Yeah. It's too far above them.

I disagree. I found Horner's work for Trek to be at about Goldsmith's level. What the hell, it's only music.

> Yavar

Yes, you are.
