i am just as much a fan of john williams and his repetition as i am hans zimmer and his. like with any artist, if you like their style, you wanna keep coming back for more. both these types of music have a place with me: the calm, reflective williams and horner while i study and relax, and the loud, obnoxious zimmer and elfman when i mow the lawn or work out.

the review was still funny though...

But you do realise that Djawadi is not Hans Zimmer, right?
I don't understand how an artist, generously describing Djawadi as such, can be content with aping a bigger name's music.

Or that people find it acceptable, or in your case even welcome, that said artist completely abandons what personal style he may have, and satisfy people by being a "Zimmer light".

"Hans Zimmer" is apparently now a synonym for the music of Djawadi, Jablonsky, and cohorts, even if they are credited alone.

And since when is John Williams known for his reflectiveness?

Meh, I guess nowadays any RC-based score is automatically categorized as "Hans Zimmer" regardless of the credited composer(s) and quality. And in actuality, all four of the composers the OP talked about would be much better to listen to while mowing the lawn. He should try Glass, Desplat, or Marianelli for studying.
