It might've been the cinema's set-up, but the score managed to be obnoxiously loud and impossible to follow at the same time. I'm sure there's plenty of cool palindromic stuff going on, but it doesn't come through in the movie at all.
So, the score WILL BE released on triple vinyl and double CD version by WaterTower.

It’s a Hans Zimmer impersonation from the first note to the last. And yet, I thought it was also pretty fab. So there you go.
I feel pretty mixed about it, having finally watched the movie too. The whole Zimmer impersonation thing gets pretty glaring at times, whether it's 747 sounding like The Dark Knight getting brutally rammed into Inception, or the main theme sounding suspiciously similar to Zimmer's X-Men theme from last year.
It's fine for what it is, but what it is is pretty constrictive.
