he co-wrote them with james howard (or whatever his name is) until the last one which he did on his
own

The first movie had a nice main theme, but it wasn't made by him so go figure

What did you find mediocre about it? It's significantly better than Wars of the Roses. I'm mesmerized by it honestly. Lay back and listen to it with quality headphones and its just epic.

The Gladiator OST was pretty good, as far as I'm concerned, I'm not aware about the rest of his film scores, though.

I think it was the third track that was fantastic, but the latter half of the record isn't that engaging--especially the one with vocals. Decent, but not spectacular.

He's a good vocalist, but I liked the instrumental parts of this album more than the parts that he sung.

I think he's pretty well fantastic, and although they kill at the instrumental parts he's still underused IMO.

Really enjoying this. Much better than WOTR, which was a disappointment following Shadows of the Sun. "Son of Man" could be one of their finest moments ever.

To many middlemen leeching off them means they can't actually make any money.... at all .... unless you buy straight from them or their bandcamp. Their last DVD sold well but made a loss. They are seriously worried they would have to quit music because so many people just took a bit of the pie until nothing was left.

It's the entry a bit down started with the title 'THE ART OF DYING' if you want to read it. It's quite sad really

War Of The Roses is hardly a disappointment, in fact it files under those rare cases of "half-finished" albums with great replay value.

mediocre

Nah, it's just kind of boring. Would work better as a score to a fucked up movie. They can never top Perdition City.

Bought this a day or so ago and I feel good about helping out the band, no matter how weak this and their cover album was.
