Also, in response to "Zimmer recycles music" - that is his STYLE, much like every other composer. All composers "recycle" music - John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, James Newton Howard, Alan Silvestri, James Horner. Elliot Goldenthal. You cannot limit that to Hans Zimmer. One of the reasons that Zimmer's scores tend to sound alike is that he often uses synthesizers, so many of the same sounds and instruments are re-used.

There's nothing wrong with that. In fact, Hans Zimmer has changed his style to a greater extent that a lot of other composers recently. When I buy the latest John Williams or James Newton Howard score, I have a pretty good idea of what it's going to sound like (and that's okay! I expect that). But I never know what to expect when buying a Zimmer score. For example, Broken Arrow is written in a very different manner than The Thin Red Line is.

There's no point in arguing which composer is better than another. Each composer has a different style, and each composer returns to that style as a way of sounding unique.
