Oh, man...what a terrible mistake you are doing by talking about Elliot Goldenthal like this...First of all, the term "New Age" in music applies to the "compositions" written by Zimmer. Elliot Goldenthal composes music which in musical terms can be classified as "Serious Contemporary music." Of course it is quite clear to me that we are talking on different levels. Elliot Goldenthal's level is the artistic level which only classical music can reach. It is the work of a composer who considers Film scoring a serious art and who composes music which is so very well CRAFTED(and not always the Zimmer 1-4-5-1 cheezy progressions). ...if you know what i mean....And i am really sorry you consider Goldenthal's music "bland." If it doesn't appeal to your tastes that doesn't mean that it is not artistic. ....with Zimmer of course, the case is quite different...
