> Does the author of this review have a bias against Hans Zimmer?
110%. I've been reading this site for years, and the only thing he seems to like is if a score sounds like John Williams farted it out. Not to detract from the greats like Williams, Goldsmith, Goldenthal, etc... but the site reviewer HATES Zimmer for some indescribable reason. IMHO, this Justice League album is a lazy, boring hodge podge of trash.
> He consistently credits 'Hans Zimmer/Various' in the Zimmer scores
> reviews, he consistently writes about 'Zimmer's crew', etc. even when
> speaking about themes that are known to be composed by Zimmer (for

> But when it comes to Danny Elfman, he seems to ignore the presence of 3

> In other terms, Geoff Zanelli helping on a Zimmer score is unacceptable
> ghostwriting and makes it impossible to attribute any merits to Zimmer
> himself, but the very same Geoff Zanelli helping on an Elfman score is OK?
> Anyway, the score by Danny Elfman and his army of ghostwriters (I
