Check it out... if you're interested in a vibrant and entertaining Spanish-themed score, filled with music of all paces, tones and moods; a step up in quality from composer Gustavo Santaolalla if ever there was one

Skip it... if you'd rather not indulge in a score filled with often slow guitar, simplistic themes and a great lack in darker material

Fury Score Review

Check it out... if you enjoyed Gravity, and seek a score which runs in (somewhat) the same vein as that masterpiece, whilst also incorporating a number of innovative instrumental and compositional techniques along the way

Skip it... if you refuse to acknowledge Price's expertise in the area of synthetic composition, and rebuke any attempted hybrids between electronic and orchestral writing, no matter how dazzling, beautiful and stunning they may be

Gone Girl (2014) Film Review

Check it out... if you seek a film which wishes to dig deeper into the modern marriage, and examine the personality clash involved; though if you're much less into thematic interpretation, you should still be satisfied with outstanding performances, cinematography and writing

Skip it... if you flinch easily at the sight of blood or genitalia, or seek a crime thriller which doesn't dig deeper than the surface relationships and events occurring on screen

Destiny Score Review

Check it out... if you're a fan of Salvatori and O'Donnell's previous work with Bungie, and appreciate their efforts to expand their horizons in regards to synthetic instrumentation and ambiant composition

Skip it... if you were never a fan of Bungie's Halo scores, and do not enjoy scores with a heavy mixture of both synthetic components and organic, orchestral instrumentation, both with their individual ups-and-downs

Gone Girl Score Review

Check it out... if you're a fan of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' previous theatrical scoring endeavors, or enjoy the style and tone that Reznor employs within his band, Nine Inch Nails

Skip it... if you're uninterested in synthetic-based, derivative, repetitive, simplistic and uninspired 'music', that contains no emotion, story or character within the entirety of its excessive 1 hour and 26 minute long running time
