My friend, take a breath. I get that you are disappointed, but film score art is alive and well. Zimmer himself recently commented at a forum that he understands that 'people feel he is destroying film score art.' His admission and declaration that he was abandoning his RC scoring methodology suggests that he understands that he needs to turn the page and begin a new opus. TASM2 for me is a clear departure and confirms to me that Zimmer is again innovating and charting a new course. I remain open.

European, art house and independent films continue to offer a rich array of thematic orchestral scores. The few big blockbuster films however seem to grab all the headlines. When quarter 2 closes, check out my list and you will see my point! Now, onward to Godzilla, which I believe will make both you and me very happy!

All the best!
