Look, if you're going to compare every soundtrack with Star Wars, you're never going to get anywhere. Star Wars is and remains the king of film music. Besides, Willow is actually one of the few Horner scores I like...
I do agree with you that the reviewer is biased towards James Horner - the man has 11 ***** scores according to Mr. Christian Clemmenson. Let's compare:
Jerry Goldsmith - only 6 ***** ratings, and he's been working since the 50s (Horner: late 70s).
Danny Elfman - 3 ***** ratings
Hans Zimmer - only 1 ***** rating!!!
Even John Williams, the KING, only has 18, and he's written at least twice as many scores as James Horner. Definite bias going on here!
