My take on the title music during the crawl was that it was too thin. The mid and low frequencies seemed absent or leveled down and almost missing. It didn’t have the umph it has had all these previous films. In fact, that might be why the music was so absent from everyone’s memories once the film is over. There were no moments that I recall where the music overpowered the visuals or even stood out. It was mixed differently or perhaps even recorded different, my guess is the prior.

And most all of the sound effects were new. Very little from what I could tell was migrated over from the previous films.

I was quite disappointed with the sound for sure. The effects were just too different and not grounded enough with the OT and the music just wasn’t noticeable enough. It’s sad that even before anything ever happened visually, I was already being disappointed by the title music’s lack of punch.
