I just cant enjoy Zimmer's music, to be honest. I dont want to bash him for what he writes, but his synth music seems to be just getting way too popular and I find myself worrying for the film score industry. I miss the days when Horner used to write good orchestral scores, John Williams blowing us away with constant powerful scores, then Jerry Goldsmith's death along with Elmer Bernstein has brought temporary shadow on scores...Elliot Goldenthal doesnt seem to be doing anything this year, David Arnold doesnt seem to be very good at all anymore, Danny Elfman is still good.... But jeez, I wish Zimmer would branch out a little bit again like I know he can do.
I dont know, do I sound too fanboy-ish? I simply miss good old fashioned classical scores.
