So how is the musical score? How does it compare to the great Goldsmith/Horner Trek scores?
funny that you ask because last night we saw the opening sequence of TWOK right before the beginning of the new movie.
The music is not as good. There is a sense of majesty and wonder in the Goldsmith/Horner score that is hard to recreate.
That said, the music is excellent and complements the film well. Perhaps it was just less memorable than the old scores.
I mentioned elsewhere that it's very Sturm und Drang at times... and I continue to think that's accurate.
