    You didn't feel it was too over-the-top and melodramatic?

    I found the Main Title and Dark Phoenix Tragedy (and possibly Storm's entrace at Alcatraz- is that on the CD?) to be excellent- but everything else seemed uninspired and unmemorable in the extreme.

    Angel's Theme was great, as was the San Francisco Bride sequence.

    And agreed: "Dark Phoenix Tragedy" and the "X-Men Main theme" are really awesome.

    I finally got the score and it barely stands out more on CD than in the film - except that I (also) like Dark Pheonix' Tragedy, Attack on Alcatraz and Pheonix Rises


    however, after listening to it I was humming ANTZ and ... of all the things... Godzilla (it was on TV two days ago :p) o_O

    the cd was ok but featured a few awesome tracks......"dark Phoenix's trajedy" and most of the last 6 tracks or so.............

    overall about 3.5 out of 5 stars

    Thanks, Strilo. :)

    Now, on to what I asked in the locked thread:

    The track listing of X-Men: The Last Stand on the back of the CD case indicates that "Phoenix Rises" runs 6:29. Quite clearly, however, the track only stretches to around 4:20 when actually played. Was the track listing a mistake (though I don't see how 6:29 can possibly be mistaken for 4:20) or was it edited to match its final length in the film at the last minute?

    I've seen comments online that it's the largest action cue Powell's ever written, which simply isn't true if it's shorter than both "Attack on Alcatraz" and "The Battle of the Cure."

    Does anyone know what the deal is? I'd hate to think an entire two minutes of such an awesome composition was left off of the soundtrack.

    As far as I'm aware the track time is just a misprint. The whole cue is there, though I think it's cut into several tracks on the album.

    A whole bunch of tracks comprise basically one sustained action sequence, cut into shorter, but gapless, tracks on the CD.

    I knew that already, but the misprinting is still completely random, especially when the times of every other track are spot on. :p
