Really? John Williams hasn't left it. In fact that's a ridiculous thing to say - In 1977 we'd left the 'symphonic era' and synthesizers had come in to take the place of orchestral scores. It was Steven Spielberg and George Lucas that got John Williams to bring them back! That in turn, made others follow this 'trend' for the next two decades. What YOU need to understand is, the reason film scoring has changed is a case of 'too many cooks'. By that I mean, back in the day, there was one of two people in charge, approving everything........Now there are dozens, all of who are putting money into the film and think they have a right to chime in and completely destroy a composers creativity, which they have been doing for well over a decade now. And to be honest, this score sucks - look at the users of the sites ratings. There's more that rated this as a one than a five. I've never seen such a dreadful rating on a film's soundtrack as I have on this one. Enough said really.
