If you really look at it though, I do not see how Elfman is trying to fight against Zimmer's originality. I will agree in saying that Hannibal was a good listen, but at the same time, Zimmer has his qualities as much as what Elfman does. Elfman in so many cases if you look at it has brought us more eerie and dark music. I haven't heard the full score yet but every time I listen to some of them I am reminded of the music he did for Dolores Claiborne which was his best score in the sense of being dark. I think that we all need to give it one more chance. I am not saying that you are wrong but what I am saying is that maybe listen to it a few more times, you have to understand though that composers cannot afford to be "copycats" of each other. They need their own ideas as well.
