I'd say 1994, not 1995. LEGENDS OF THE FALL was great -- and while he has written two or three scores since then that I play fairly frequently, they're all very much in LOTF mode. BRAVEHEART and TITANIC particularly, I both enjoy, but they're both just LOTF redux, pretty much. Before that, yes -- KRULL, WILLOW, LAND BEFORE TIME, STAR TREK II . . . I love his stuff. Lots of fun. But he peaked with LOTF and while sometimes he's managed to approach that again, it's been too similar to what's gone before, and too passive.

One composer whom I don't understand the acclaim for is Alan Silvestri, though. JUDGE DREDD is great and BTTF is lots of fun, and PREDATOR's catchy but overrated, but to me, his most popular stuff such as THE MUMMY RETURNS is just noise.
