Don't be so harsh no reason to call him a fanboy, any time anyone defends Zimmer they get called a fanboy. I also think your summary is incorrect as this is the only music review site I visit that has given inception a below average review. Between the other positive soundtrack reviews, the hordes of Zimmer fan(boy)s and the inordinate number of film reviewers raving about the quality and impact of Zimmer's music in the film, I think it is extremely incorrect to say "everyone else in the majority thinks its fine but nothing special."

Oh and it was in my opinion very clever to use/manipulate an important source song to create a powerful main title cue that everyone would recognise and connect with the film.

A lot of people on this site like to act as if they are really clever by agreeing with the editor's opinions about Zimmer and feel as though they sound intelligent by dismissing Zimmer fans with poor one-liners and opinions represented as 'matter-of-fact' (admittedly many of them are obnoxious fanboys deserving no consideration). I'm not saying you have done this and I do respect your opinion, it just happens a lot and it is frustrating to see some people being so arrogant toward others.

Peace my friend.
