This is a forum not a debate.
Dave and Karol, I know you both have your different opinions. I myself am a follower of John Williams but James Horner is still a superb composer. As long as whatever score you are listening to brings you joy, sorrow etc, it is a good score. Some scores may seem totally useless lets say, BUT until you have total understanding of the score and conditions to write it then you have no right to judge it. Like Troy, I had no idea Horner had 3 weeks. I think he was most productive in those 3 weeks. John Williams is obviously the most known/respected film composer of the present time. He is versitile and has also wrote the themes for Olympics, NBC, Liberty Weekend etc. Dave, please don't despise Horner, I myself wish to tell Karol things but their is no need to as my opinions are only ONE-SIDED as i am a Williams follower. Just appreciate Horner's works, even if they don't seem meaningful to you, I assure you they do serve their purpose. Karol, I don't agree with your opinion but I do respect it. Love whatever music has mose effect on you. Both of you, be glad that you are into this sort of MEANINGFUL music and not that (in my opinion) USELESS,MEANINGLESS rap, hip-hop, sort of stuff.
