Eternals score is MUCH better in the film

A LOT of the thematic development (especially of the main Eternals theme), action music, and some very charming fantasy stuff is just not on the album, which favors the slow, dramatic, and brooding parts of the score. There's even one use of the main theme that was really funny and that I won't spoil. Out of all the Marvel scores that get absurdly-long digital soundtrack records, why didn't this get one? And even with a 2-hour runtime, how did Djawadi and co. land on THIS 65 minutes of music to include on the album? The non-chronological presentation also robs the soundtrack of any sort of narrative flow, which makes for a dull listening experience.

This is why whenever you guys complain about albums being too long I roll my eyes, cuz I remember when it was all too common for scores to have short soundtracks or go by unreleased. Y'all sound spoiled when you want soundtracks to be shorter, when what you really should be asking for is that scores nowadays be BETTER.
