Comments about the soundtrack for American Journey (John Williams)

You Americans think you know everything, don't you?

You Americans say stupid things like this "Timmy" person and then you wonder why the rest of the world holds you in contempt?

The album has music for the Olympics and other world events. It is NOT strictly American, nor should it have been.

Your perception is narrow.

The reviewer surprised me. I thought when i saw the review that he would be just like you, being an American and all, but he saw the album through a bigger lense. Williams has helped make the Olympics into an American-only club.

Just because the Olympics are in America this year doesn't mean that their music should all be John Williams and Americanized.

You want good Olympic music? Give the job to Papathanasiou Evangelos!
