The age question you pose is poignant indeed. Is it possible that the reviewers distaste for Hans Zimmer and other similar artists that are so ubiquitous these days may have to do with his age on the opposite end of the spectrum? Movie soundtracks are indeed evolving. To be so in love with the classics that you reject future classics just because they are different is narrow-minded. And it also borders on pride. As shown in that critics often decide that if something is appreciated by the public at large, then they must show their superior understanding and education by criticizing it and doting upon more educated soundtracks that the public is obviously too dull to understand.
