Well, sorry here . I hope I didn't offend you. I will try Goldenthal (I have only Alien 3 score though), but I wob't buy any of his scores without listening them in context (sorry. I prefer tonal music). And I agree with Blake here. I don't want to understand music after few listens. I want to feel its influence with the first listen. But I agree that after few listens you find some things (for example in orchestration) that you didn't notice earlier.

And what do you study.

No, actually Hannibal is quite distinct. Zimmer didn't just rip off Mahler, (for instance he gave very needed unease to the score). If you would like discuss this particular score feel free to ask me. It is my favorite Zimmer.
It is the only score that was written to be liked by the main character of the movie (yes, I think Dr Lecter would fall in love with it ).
