Exactly. If he simply dislikes this style of composing, then it is okay.

If their reviews are anything like their comments here, I don't want to see them.

If Goldenthal thought this approach to be good for the movie, no problem. It is NOT his primary task to compose a score that is a good listening experience. While Titus does have some brilliant parts, it does lack cohesiveness on the other side. You won't notice that in the movie, but on the album.
