Why I like Williams? Because he does so many styles, because he writes beautiful themes, interesting action cues, has complicated and interesting compositions and orchestrations (unlike Goldsmith...), always writes music that fits the film and serves it well (unlike Horner and Zimmer often...). I know Morricone, so there really is no reason for me to learn his name. He is good, but nowhere near Williams IMHO...
