After [In reply to] Can't Post

I can understand imin's argument about a score being "intended" to be a part of the film, but I certainly wouldn't hesitate to listen to a score before I saw film if I was interested in the composer. I wouldn't consider listening before to be spoilerish.

That being said, I never think of pursuing a score before I've seen a film, since I am not that attached to any current composers, though I have much respect for the likes of Howard Shore and John Williams.

I love the feeling of being in the middle of a movie and suddenly the score makes the visuals and/or story "pop". That's delightful.
