Well, If your going to be soo blatently sarcastic and condenscending I guess I can too. I never said that Goldenthal wasnt artistic. In fact that is the whole problem I have with his pieces. They are so "artistic" that they end up only appealing to a narrow fan base who can understand his "artisticaly crafted compisitions". The rest of the world stands back and wonders what in the world this was supposed to sound like.

Now, upon further review I have realized I did not give you credit for Goldsmith. That guy is the film score god. Nobody can touch him. Williams on the other hand, while having alot to be commended on, still rips his own pieces for his next work. But then again so does Zimmer(Broken Arrow and The Rock are practically extensions of each other)

I think what you are trying to say is that Goldenthal is for those who are sophsiticated and can "truly appriciate classical music". If that is so than so be it. I guess I am just one of the ignorant masses. But if that is true than perhaps you should consider this. Get yourself a P2P program and do a search for Goldenthall. You will get a few hits for pieces and movies I have never heard of(except Final Fantasy, which is pretty boring save for I think track 6, whichever one is the background for the surgery, and the last track). Now search Zimmer, you will get hundreds of hits for popular movies. The ignorant masses have spoken. If you find it surpy and popish thats fine, but as for the rest of the world who does not poses your "artisticaly refined tastes" well dont try to impose you tastes on them. All I am saying is to make a blunt statement like dont listen to this guy becuase he isnt any good, simply becuase you find his work boring, is wrong. People enjoy the soundtrack to Gladiator, its full of power. Even if it is a "boring overdone pattern". Fact is that pattern is what people have come to expect, becuase for use peons it sounds right. People, do go out and listen to Zimmers works. I think you will find them enjoyable and worth a listen. Then YOU decide if you want to spen your money, just listen first.
