Everyone deserves more than RotS :P

Excellent.

Well I will admit Elfman's Hulk was on my top 200 before some new ones booted it just below, really dig that one and it's awesome descending motif.

Yeah, agreed. Rooftop Kiss is just the kind of pretty, emotional love music you don't hear much anymore. Give James a piano and he could wither the hardest soul.

Huh, y'know....I haven't heard that one :/

Two upcoming actually!
