Hi Jerry!

Yeah, you are right tough. All composers should have their own sound.
And maybe i should listen the Red Dragon score one more time. But i still think Zimmer should have scored the movie. I guess they are both good. Hey, i liked the score for "Edward Scissorhands" so Elfman is not that bad anyway. But his
style/sound has change quite a lot after that score & over the years. What do you think?
