Too little too late,
This review is from: The Ring/The Ring 2 (Audio CD)
Once again movie makers abuse fans of movies classic scores by giving them half the music of the original and unfortunately some of the poor compositions of the sequel. The music of "the Ring" by Hans Zimmer reflects influences of the Hitchcockian era of horror movie scores, giving a nod to scores from films like Psycho or Vertigo.
This album attempt to appease angry fans who like me were quite mad about the fact that there never was a cd released for the original film. Our hopes were raised when this release was previewed but alas they were hopes in vain.
Instead of being treated to the full eerie score of the first film, we are force fed a diet of remixed crap which doesn't seem to appear in the film that much. The track order is disjointed and does not do either movie justice although Ring 2 is a pathetic sequel and the music from the second film suits it rather well.
On the whole I'm not going to use this much more, a waste of money. If you are looking for good movie music scores try John Debney for the Passion or Hans Zimmer for Hannibal or Gladiator. The cd is an offense to fans of the wonderfully scary music in the original. Not worth the money.
