missing the best part of the score. The music from the moon base/queen battle. Otherwise, pretty awesome.

I'm not sure what it is going to take for Roland Emmerich to sever his ties with Harald Kloser, or for Hollywood to blacklist him completely. The man has absolutely zero talent for composing music for motion pictures. He doesn't understand suspense, sadness, excitement, or action in the tiniest, most distant way. Sometimes I wonder if the man actually exists and that his name isn't some sort of synonym for an auto-tune-esque computer that just churns out the most G-E-N-E-R-I-C movie music imaginable.

I shouldn't use words alluding to imagination in this review. There is none in this score. It is 40 minutes of droning emptiness with no highlight until the end credits track, which is only notable thanks to the use of David Arnold's theme tune. The original movie had wonderful and iconic music back in 1996 and not one person left cinemas not humming it or whistling. Ending his relationship with David Arnold is one of the most stupid decisions Roland Emmerich could have ever made in his career. Hooking up with a talented composer would have been smart, but, for some unfathomable reason, he has become loyal to Harald Kloser, who would not be able to identify any sort of music even if he downloaded every single track in existence straight from the internet into his brain.

Have I made it clear that Harald Kloser has no talent?

I attribute the public's dismissal of Independence Day: Resurgence with a gigantic "meh" to Kloser's non-effort. It should have been rousing, breathtaking, hopeful, and upbeat. It was nothing. It was...nothing!!! The man simply doesn't know what he is doing. I saw this movie twice in cinemas and both times you could feel the audience becoming impatient and frustrated at the lack of excitement or suspense. A stronger composer could have fixed this. Kloser is simply not capable of a movie of this size and scale, or any movie for that matter. He should never be hired again. He has no skill, no ability, no talent, no understanding, no imagination, no vision.

Stop hiring this man!

Two completely out of place songs are also tacked onto the end of this album. And not one person on Planet Earth cares. In no universe will this ever be played more than Arnold's score to the first film.
