First of all, calm down. You'll have a stroke.

Secondly, perhaps I generalised a bit but my issue still remains the same. From the extensive list below, only five of the soundtracks have been released in the last ten years and we all know Zimmer pumps out more than his fair share every year.

CK has obviously liked some older scores by Zimmer as demonstrated by your list, but steadily over the years the reviews have gotten progressivly worse (even though I would argue Zimmer's work has gotten better) and the other point of my post was that CK no longer cares on the effectivness of a score within a film. I kind of thought the main point of writing a film score was to enhance the film and surely this should be the focus of reviews on a site dedicated to Film Soundtracks.

Now I'd tell you to [bleep!] off too, but that would be rude.
