This has been said already but the score was fucking amazing.
Really? I thought it was fucking terrible. What little I noticed, anyway.
It wasn't a "score" in the traditional sense (like, say, Williams or even Zimmer's POTC work). To my admittedly untrained ear it was more like a moody, new age soundscape - background noise and the occasional melodic theme to highlight the more emotional parts. I didn't particularly care for MoS as a score bit since I happen to enjoy moody, new age soundscapes, it will make for some good background, muzak-type listening while I'm writing.

On the plus side, its relative lack of thematic elements meant that the few times the main themes pop up (especially with the piano), they are more prominent and noteworthy.
