Well I think, John W. is the best composer of all time. Many people says that some (or most) of his work is unlistenable. But think after: could i dont know James Horner write a score for Star Wars? Yes, i'm sure he could write a listenable, melodic score, with some choir, but he couldn't write so strong main theme, or called "action music". John Williams simply write, what te movie need! And cause of this sometimes his music is unlistanable (it's relative, what we call inlistenable). I think John W. is a great composer, because he doesnt think, that,
"whoaa, I have to write there a little bit more melodical music, because nobody will buy my score". I think the movie is the first. It's another think that people buy scores and he want to hear a listenable music form their cd player, but come on, isn't the most important, that the music serve the film??? I have 13 James Horner score, but I never heard so called unlistenable track. And don't say, that he only writes for "melodic" film. I'm not saying,that the composer who can write unlistenable score is the good composer.I hope you know what i'm talking about.
Listen the Terminal socre, or Home Alone or Memoirs of geisha...Are they unlistenable??? No, i think don"t. And Star Wars?? Yeah, if you want to hear some scottish music with bagpipe under a fightscene then avoid Star wars and John Williams.

Otherwise,my favourite composer isnt't John Williams. And for me there are unlistenable tracks too, but I know that that scene need that track.There is no place for melody, if there is a war...And I know, that if I found a track bad, it doesn't means, that the composer is bad (in that situation).There is difference between "my opinion" and between "facts".

Sorrry for my english, I'm hungarian.
