Now, I must say, I actualy agree. I think that popular tracks, or let's say tracks that you don't have to take serious, grab peoples attention to even start to listen to soundtracks. But once you've come so far and have listened to very many soundtraclks, you will find that the popular soundtracks are on a very common bases, or they of course wouldn't attract so many people. Therefore you will start looking for new stuff, which often goes into a very personal direction, that means something that not many people will like, and you get a very specific idea of what you would like. If a soundtrack catches me from the first hear, it you usualy reminds me of some other classic soundtrack that's already been there, and where there are millions of it's type. Usualy the themes are predictable and square. I like soundtracks, that i don't quite grab right from the beginning, and eventualy after hearing a few times ( and after taking it "seriously" ), i start enjoying it, and i'm sure to find more and more ideas that i have overheard at the beginning. This is a lot more pleasent because the themes i.e. don't get boring, like Zimmers, after the fifth time you hear it.
By the way I am a Zimmer fan, because very few tracks of his, especialy on Gladiator, have this "unpopular", surprising quality to them, where one can tell, that if the scene of a movie needs it, Zimmer can compose on a very high level.

P.S.: Excuse my poor English, I'm German.
