film score ratings

This page was created to give an average score of four film score review sites (usually between 2-4 depending upon if enough can be found). I use Film Tracks, Soundtrack Express, Movie Music UK, Music from the Movies, Movie Wave, SoundtrackNet, Score Reviews, Film Music on the Web (UK), Film Score Magic, Music On Film, Tracksounds, and if all else fails, Amazon. The system isn't meant to be perfect, nor possible for obvious reasons, but if something of a consensus is what you need then hopefully this will help.

really good list! thanks for the time and effort i imagine you put into this ;-) i am an avid collector and fan (of course) of film, video game, and television music. I've just started up a blog of my own, over the past few months where I review new and classic soundtracks. Feel free to come by and visit!
