Your review is contradictory. As usual, you deride Zimmer for employing 'additional' composers, the contributions of which are unknown. And yet, only recently in your review of Bee Movie you have stated:

"Assuming that Gregson-Williams coordinated all the themes and styles for Bee Movie and merged them into a cohesive whole, considerable credit should be given to him."

Why do you not give Zimmer the same credit? Why can we not 'assume' he performed precisely the same function on The Simpsons Movie? I agree, it is frustrating to be left in the dark as to what exactly these additional composers have contributed. However, Zimmer is the credited composer and should be treated as such. Don't commend Gregson-Williams for 'coordinating' a score in one review, and attack Zimmer for using 'ghostwriters' in another review (a la Pirates). Your reviews of Zimmer scores are often rife with contradictions which only contributes to a prevailing view of your site as biased. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed the score and am happy you (eventually) reviewed it.
