Williams, Horner, Sylvestri...these guys haven't taken there music to the next leve!   Wednesday, July 28, 2004 (4:43 a.m.) 

I hate hearing reviews saying that Zimmer hasn't yet taken his music to the next level! what a load of BULL!!! Zimmer has raised the bar for film music. Williams, Horner(so unorigonal), Sylvestri etc haven't changed there style at all! These are the guys who need to try something new, not Zimmer. Don't get me wrong, Williams, Horner(in the old days) and co have done some great music but they have never changed there style and sound. Why is Zimmer the only one to be pointed out as not changing his style? If you have many soundtracks of all of these composers, Zimmer has the most variety and his scores always have a signature to them which makes each score different. Hannibal which i put up there with Williams' Schindler's List is so very classical but you all forget about that score. I find the only people who don't like Zimmer are classical music buffs. These people should not be listening to film music because film music involves any musical style from anywhere around the globe. Has any composer though come close to creating a theme so powerful as the 'Crimson Tide'theme? NO!!! not until Zimmer scored King Arthur's main them. Zimmer must be doing something right for films because directors want him to do there movies. Embrace Zimmer as well as other composers but don't bag the guy for being the BEST!!! be safe and have fun and enjoy ur music

Obviously, your love for Hans Zimmer blinds you and makes you ignore simple facts written in notes.

"The next level" doesn't mean "louder" or "more intese". You should learn some basics. *NM*   Saturday, July 31, 2004 (12:47 p.m.)

Why not...action music is supposed to be intense?   Monday, August 2, 2004 (10:14 a.m.) 

Well I guess we could write action music with a triangle and that could be bringing it to the next level because it wouldn't be loud or more intense right? The dulcet tones of those sweet beautiful harps instruments could be like the signaling of and upcoming battle..I mean that would get my pulse pounding...that would be bringing the music to another level as never experienced before...Your right...the score to King Arthur blows...because Zimmer is a loser who's only style is to usinh those blasted synths...I mean just because they fit the music and add another level doesn't mean anything...it's just the fact that he encorporates technology into music...just like all those other composers that use computers and recording technology right...you know...that is why I guess Christian gave the score a 4 star rating and not a 1 star rating like pirates of the carribean...because Zimmer is so unoriginal and not innovative at all...that makes sense right...i guess i follow your logic.

P.S. by the way...a little piece of information...don't go writing a reply before realizing that a little sarcasm might have been used sparsely throughout this post.

Tell me, what is so inovating about King Arthur?

Nothing, everything in there we have heard before even the action music, it's merely a mix between Gladiator and The Last Samurai. There is simply nothing new in this score and that probably why I thought is was simply ok.

I have been a Zimmer fan since the early days of Backdraft. I love his scores, but there is a line to be crossed between maturing his style and just repeating it. I do enjoy King Arthur but it's nothing great.

Zimmer Williams, Horner, Sylvestri   Saturday, September 4, 2004 (1:11 a.m.)

Let me try to give my explanation of why the ppl say something like that.
Many ppl say Hans Zimmers music is always the same. And most of them argue that media ventures OSTs are always the same #####. Why ? I mean it's because of usage of the MoogBrass-Sound. MoogBrass sounds Wonderful in movies, it is very impressive and conspicuous. That's the sound which most of Hans zimmer-Fans automatically associate with Hans Zimmer. Hear to the music of Klaus Badelt from media ventures and u hear this MoogBrass. Hear to Hary Gregson-Williams and u hear the MoogBrass dominating. What do u think why many ppl like the music of series like streethawk & Airwolf ? Its because of MoogBrass. What do u think why Moog synthesizers became one of the best known synthesizers ever ? Because of the MoogBrass. What do other composers do? Danny Elfman takes the real sound of trombones. It is wonderful too but not the same. Williams and Horner dont use it too. Willaims knows only real strings and nothing else and Horner likes horns. Horner-->Horn. Understandable, or not ? :-)hehe.
They all make excellent music but it sounds different and more varied because they dont use this kind of dominant sounds.
So if u prise Zimmers music, also prise Moog for its brass :-)))

p.s. I wonder if "Gods" like Wagner or Berlioz would like or dislike the music of Hans Zimmer if they could hear it.
