No need to remain subconscious ....

This "But it works!" discussion about film music being "more shallow" (quote Hans Zimmer) is a billion years old, and it still boils down to the simple, essential fact, that there is nothing genius about Zimmer simplicity - it's simple because he can apparently do nothing else anymore, and other composer can achieve the same, or better, effects by using an infinitely broader musical language.

Hooper falls in the same category, and even he is more colourful in his Harry Potter scores than Zimmer was in the last years.
