To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This review is from a PhD student with a research focus on film music. Hexel's book is right on point. Modern film composers are breaking out of classical traditions and collaboration is replacing the auteur. This is an excellent and illustrative case study. Highly recommend this book.
