I agree with you, Pal. But you should know actual fact that John Williams repeats his own music in technical manner that means you have to make an deep observation whereas James Horner do not repeat his own music in technical way. Eventually, you can easily identify his repeated themes from his previous films. That's why people are making more complaints on Horner, he doesn't have talent to hide his own themes and cues. That's where the actual problem with Horner. Despite this, he is a very good composer.

Take Care!
