I must confess, while the soundtrack was well executed, well recorded, and well placed, I thought it was sub-par music. Am I the only one who noticed that almost every track was almost entirely derivative of Horner's score and Goldsmith's score? The main titles is just a re-scoring of Goldsmith's principle Alien theme, almost all of the incidental action music is based very closely on Horner's action music from Aliens. Sure, it's well done and it's effective, but it is just re-writing music that already exists. And worst of all, it's *not as good*. It's very similar, but there's no way it matches the quality of composition and orchestration found in the original films. I was kind of hoping for a *new* score that takes elements of existing themes and motives and develops them into new directions. That's just my conclusion here.
