Comments about the soundtrack for X-Men (Michael Kamen)

Great score, but too short

This score is very short, though I love every minute of it. My favortes are "Cerebro", since it is used as the movie's opening and is a really exciting piece. "Logan and Rogue" is the best single contained song and is really nice. I also like the heroic X-Men theme (if you can really call it that), those few notes that really take off in "X-Jet" and "Ambush".

But it left out too much. Most notably is Wolverine's theme. When he's in the bar there's this really creepy melody playing that is awesome. Wolverine needed a theme and this could have been it. It's a shame. Also, the ending when Xavier is being wheeled out is great, but left out. It's like a more energized version of the main theme.
