You may be right, but the score seemed very undermixed (a problem I have with a lot of MCU films) that even as I was trying to pay attention to the music, it barely registered with me with the exception of a couple of scenes.

It could be that maybe just the theater I was in was having an issue, but this is the same building where I saw No Time To Die and I didn't have that problem. Plus, the songs in the film seemed to sound fine. I'm not in love with the Dune score, but at least that allowed for moments for the music to shine while not burying buried in sound effects, but I didn't get that from this film.

As to your first point, it's really odd that TV shows seem to get an abundance of music being released, but films are still limited. Why did this philosophy of releasing every note only extend to shows, and not films?
