Is there any score you've been willing to buy even without having ever watched the movie it was taken from?
As far as I'm concerned, the answer is affirmative. I bought Mychael Danna's Monsoon Wedding, James Horner's The Legend Of Zorro (which I'm listening to right now), Flightplan, Braveheart, James Newton Howard's King Kong, The Interpreter, Hidalgo, Lady in the Water, Jan A.P. Kaczmarek's Finding Neverland without having ever watched the movies for which these scores had been written.
Yes, I guess I might be called a true score fanatic!
