I laugh at your short statements, you real cannot prove that I'm wrong, but tell me to study a textbook to affirm my beliefs. Why should I? You should be sufficiently knowledgeable to tell me, no? Music is not subjective, and all things are not relative. If they were this discussion has no meaning, and both our statements are right. You can listen to music objectively and notice when things are being used. Unfortunately, noticing the obvious now means "noticing the subjective," and that simply doesn't make sense. Although, I find it funny that you want to use science to prove Zimmer's genius, which in all frankness, is stupid.

Also, you can become desensitized to music as you listen to it for a while, inheriting a sense of objectivity, if you will. In the case of Zimmer, I've heard so many scores by him that it really doesn't fill me with anything. I just listen. I like how you say it's "tainted." Than I suppose your argument is tainted with inaccuracies because your emotion.
