HA HA no you are a bit lost i think! Directors love Zimmers work and guys like Williams which i truelly think is awsome cannot produce the style of music a lot of the directors want these days. Take Man on Fire...Harry Gregson William's music works perfect in the film...John Willaims, Horner, Shore could not pull that type of music off! Remember the music is written to work in a film not on a CD. Zimmer does so many varieties of music because he CAN!!! if you really want to understand Zimmer and really hear how good he is in the composition side of things, listen to Hannibal or Invincible or As Good As It Gets and then listen to King Arthur, Crimson Tide, Power of One, The Lion King...Theres just a short list of how diverse the guy is and how talented he is! You might think its noise but i think it's GREAT NOISE HAHAHa take it easy man and lets just enjoy the music that is out there and don't bag the guy for being so popular and you have to give him credit where it is due. If his music wasn't good he wouldn't have a job!!!
