I disagree with you there, I love the long tracks. It makes listening to the music so much more enjoyable. Less silence and more music! Good music if not great! I think all soundtracks should be set out Zimmer style, but almost no composer out there can sustain a 10min track without getting boring. Zimmer is the only one. Horner tries but has the most weakest themes. I miss the old Horner of Willow. I love fim music and the reason why Zimmer apeals to so many movie fans is that doesn't compose in a classical style. He's themes are rich, melodic and sound so full, even when he does a sex comedy. Imagine Zimmer if he did Lord of The Rings which are ok soundtracks but really are lacking the power of a grand theme. I hate that Zimmer cops crap for not being complex in his music. This makes me laugh! I'd like you to give Brian Tyler crap then for being so simple. If the music has a good theme, sound and style who cares how complex it is. Zimmer keep kicking ass and let's all remember that if it were'nt for Zimmer and his willingness to share his ideas and help up and coming composers, the film music industry would'nt be where it is today! Take it easy all! hope there are some great soundtracks later on in the year.
