Obviously, Clemmensen values unity and consistency far more than you people do -- it's called grading on different criteria. Believe it or not, your ideas on what a film score should do are not more valid than his...
Also, you guys can send in your own reviews. Frankly, I think it'd be great to have reviews with contrasting opinions for the albums on this site; it'd make things a lot more interesting. As it stands, though, your comments are merely spiteful.
Myself, I feel a composer should attempt some semblance of overarching unity in composing a film score -- in most cases, I think it shows the film a lot more respect. In the case of TITUS, I think the score amounts to a hodgepodge of cues that sound as thought they could've come from anywhere, could've been applied to any film, don't have a strong identity. Nonetheless, I appreciate Goldenthal's great versatility.
