I totally agree. I think Howard would have done an awesome job on this solo. The best parts of this score are the slow sections that are obviously Howard's. I've always been a Zimmer fan myself, but he is definitely slipping into a more cliche sound and pattern. Newton Howard and Gregson-Williams would have been a great pair. Looking forward to the Narnia score by Williams.
