No, I love Williams and Horner..except when Horner self-plagarizes. Also James Newton Howard and Basil Pouledouris. Zimmer USED to be good. But Media Ventures is not 'artists'. It's cheap and easy mix-and-match film scores that, as many have said, substitute noise and volume for composition. Some of the "Pirates" pieces were downright unlistenable noise.

Got that right. Like I said, Media Ventures has degraded it to "Let's sound like The Rock AGAIN" and add in some Enya-esque bits, too.

Money and insider politics. Cut-and-paste scores from Media Ventures is the result.
