> What makes you assume that I am a Zimmer fanboy.
> Am I defending Zimmer's score?
> Very well, since I have criticized the reviewer, I shall now criticize
> Zimmer's scoring style to balance the picture.

> I think Zimmer is a case of someone who caught the tiger's tail: I found a

> As a background, Zimmer did not have classical training, so already is

> But, Zimmer is as much a businessman as a composer. He has his own music

> business contracts that make money. I do not see much musical value.
> Therefore, time spent criticizing his scores is time wasted.

> My sole objection was the tone of the reviewer, who was taking an

> Or total serialism? Limited transposition modes? Or do you know the

> As for your attack on me, two words: °³ »õ³¢
