I agree. Clemmensen really has a slant against Zimmer and definitely one for John Williams. granted Zimmer is a little more experimental, hit and miss and not as orchestrally educated as Williams, but he can still produce great sound, atmosphere and emotion with melodic theme enough to merit not being treated so harshly.
