Darn you! You win on the name! For some reason I always thought his surname began with a "K". Anyway, CK sounds cooler. CC is rather feminine :-)

May be it's because I know nothing about the technical aspects of music (I really don't) but I do know a thing or two about the art of filmmaking. I just find Zimmer's work diverse, interesting and more importantly exciting.

I mean, taking just a few of his scores of recent scores, none of them sound anything like the others. My examples in this case would be Pirates: At World's End (awesome), Simpsons Movie (nice but admittedly functional), Da Vinci Code (hauntingly beautiful), Dark Knight (creepy as [bleep!]) and even Kung Fu Panda (loads a fun) - I really believe you can't get scores so different sounding from one another.

I guess we need to agree to disagree because we seem to be hearing two different things every time.

At least you didn't tell me to [bleep!] off. You're much politer than the other guy.
