I agree. I was really annoyed when I read MSM's messages that Zimmer is , because he doesn't use counterpoint. He uses it, otherwise, he wouldn't do orchestral works.

I am very happy to read a grown-up person's comment, which is a rarity on this website. I have asked you for few responses, but I haven't received any response.

I give this score very strong 4 stars. What do you think?
