I don't
> want to take music seriously enough to make it not enjoyable.

Now this is clearly a false statement. By listening to music that is complex in emotional material and orchestrations you allow yourself to experience something else and once you discover new things, THEN you feel MORE joy and you thank a great composer for writing a great piece of music. In other words, serious music can be MORE enjoyable than just a good melody lalala that gets you right from the beginning.

If someone told you to go and jump off the top of a high cliff just because millions of others have already done it, would you? Popularity doesn't make a score GREAT. It doesn't change its content. It is what it is. And a FEW people have the right not liking everyone's favorite score.

No; you are right! I did come off the way you described above. I just get soooo pissed off when i see genious composers such as Elliot Goldenthal get so little credit when they've written masterpieces such as Alien 3, Sphere, Final Fantasy, Titus etc etc.

If
> I'm NOT, then good Lord man, you need a reality check.

After all this, has it ever occured to you that maybe it's YOU who needs a reality check?

Have a good day!
