Ok a couple of things...If you guys asked Nott etc about Hans Zimmer they would praise him for the help he provides. Secondly i was hoping to read a review about a film score, not about someones name that appears in a credit. Zimmer wouldn't give two craps about whether his name was on a credit or not. It's the music company that ultimatley decides on what is going to be written and showed on a cd booklet. Also have you people realised that directors ask for Zimmer and so instead of being greedy like you all think he is...he passes on projects to give upcoming composes a go! Chris Clem has forgotten about what filmtracks is all about and its about discussing a score...not whats on a cd booklet and for a fair review of all scores your all better off going to musicfromthemovies.com
One last thing... If Zimmer wants to produce more, good on him! Why not? At least his giving other composers a go and thank god he has because guys like Powell and Harry G Williams and now Steve Jablonski wouldn't be around and they have provided some fantastic scores to come out of the last few years. Everyone has seem to forgotten all the great scores Zimmer has written and like any composer they all have there good scores and dissapointing ones, but Horner who is by far the most unoriginal composer over the last 10-15years doesnt cop any negativity. Clem needs to start listening to scores again instead of reading credits on a cd booklet! In the end who cares who scores what and produces what? Just listen to the music and hopefully you will enjoy it! For a decent score that not many people know about is Steve Jablonski's STEAMBOY (japanese anime). I great little score. Bye to all of you and remember to keep your ears open to the music...not eyes open to words written in a booklet. Peace friends!
