Odd you should use the word inventiveness, considering that Williams rips most of his stuff off of other composers. Like Vagner(spelling), hell so does Zimmer. I also find it worth mentioning that Goldsmith submitted a score for Gladiator but was rejected becuase it didnt sound as good as Zimmers piece. As for Goldenthal, well yes he is original. But only in the sense that his works are "new age" and do not inspire emotion. His works do not "stand alone" with out the pictures that correspond. If I am forced to listen to a piece until "I get used to it" than it wasnt really moving was it. A piece should strike you the first time you hear it as somthing you like or dislike, not something that is so bland you have to listen to it a few times. Zimmer's wrok for Crimson Tide did affect me the first time I heard it. You get the emotion of size and power, and it makes me drive crazy on the road! Open your mind, I do like some of Goldenthals work and most of the the other two guys, but dont tell others to ignore Zimmer.
