If i could just throw in my 2 pennies worth here... I absolutely LOVED this article!! I'm so glad that Finally someone exposes Hans Zimmer for the fraud he is. What kind of article is this? A brilliant one! Everything he said about Zimmer is entirely true. He IS LAZY, and he does serve himself, totally. The guy does get Hoardes of ghostwriters to do his work for him, he loves using his electronics just like his mate Klaus Badelt. This isn't an anti-German anything either, but those guys have got it all wrong when it comes to scoring films. They are opting for a cheap, flashy but ultimately lazy and hollow way of scoring movies. I for one condemn their lazy style. I'm not 'biased'. I'm a score lover, actor, and future director and I can appreciate music on many levels and for many purposes. But Zimmers' efforts and those of his cronies have always left a bad taste in my mouth and at least someone has had the guts to speak out about this.
If you Zimmer fans don't like it, then tough! It's time you learned what Real, Proper scoring of films is all about!
