Oh Jamaal, Jamaal, you are ignorant. At least people like B. Ross are here to inform you of what music is. Zimmer is not now nor is he yesterday - he is a fad that this so obviously untrained and utterly lacking in nuance. At least Horner knows how to write even if he chooses to copy himself. Please, please don't pretend to understand what makes music great or why Horner is a wonderful composer and Zimmer is a hack completely dependent on his ghosts.
