Music is a personal thing, we will all have differing opinions it.

However, saying things like "Williams writes notes randomly" just isn't appropriate. We all know he is a good composer simply by his success. Perhaps actors can become extremely successful without talent, but musicians can't, even if you don't like them. We both know he is a good composer.

It's all preference. I like Thomas Newman the most. Does that mean he's the best composer ever? No, but I enjoy listening to his music the most, because it is my preference. He is the best, certainly, at composing the type of music which I appreciate, but that doesn't mean he's the best ever.
