    Looks like Varese is pulling out of the animated genre, if not the soundtrack industry altogether. While I can understand why a label might pass on titles like Turbo or Rio 2, I wasn’t expecting them to let this one slip after the smash hit that was the first dragon score. Hope the album turns out alright at the end though (i.e. no fake chorus, no crappy mastering with lots of clipping, and nothing shorter than an hour long of score).

    This could be the best score of the year, I hope it’s going to be more than just a re-hasch. The first one was so rich that it seems difficult to add a lot of new material without letting old themes go… Fingers crossed, in John Powell I trust!

    I hope that so, DS
