James Horner - Avatar OST

I go back and check the envelope again. It’s not there. Where is my ticket to the premiere? They’ve sent me the soundtrack CD but it appears I shall not go to the ball. I promised I wouldn’t punch Leona in the face and everything. I’m not sure what the point of this CD is (other than to claw back some of the $300 million spent on the flick). Out of context from the movie who would want to listen to this? Even after seeing the movie are people going to get their action figures out and start re-enacting scenes from the 3D extravaganza? It’s all very Halo-esque and epic in scope and when paired with the movie I’m sure it adds to the experience. But on its own it’s a hollow listening experience. Not even attaching Quality Street wrappers to a coat hanger and making my own 3D glasses made any improvement. And there is yet another turd in the egg nog: the final track is from Miss Charisma herself, Leona Lewis. Her soulless warbling is almost beyond human endurance. Actually, maybe I know why I’m not invited to the premiere.
