ZIMMER used a drum orchestra... and soloists! Or perhaps your small mind/outlook... only thinks an orchestra is made up of brass, strings, woodwinds and percussion - It's people like you the Zimmer HATERS! - who should keep quiet as your insulting anyone who has clue regarding 'modern' literal film music... Not homages or pastiches!
