I bought the soundtrack from Clone Wars this week. My thoughts were that it's not going to be John Williams, but it's still got to be great - after all, it's Star Wars. Boy was I in for a shock. The guy who wrote it seems to believe that you can't ever have enough 'exciting' Taiko rhythms - he does them to the point where they lose all impact. Even the main theme is placed over a monotonous Taiko rhythm - it sounds like the very worst 'Hooked on Classics' albums, when the London Phil used to play melodies from Mozart over generic drum loops.
To make up for my disappointment I went and bought the new Mummy Soundtrack, thinking things couldn't get any worse. Again I was wrong.
In future I'm going to read reviews before I buy.
