They aren't childish tantrums and in my un-proffesional review at the start of this year, which can be found on the comments page. I found that Tyler had used music he had composed for all of his other scores. This is my opinion of course but as a fan of both composers, Goldsmith's score really is the superior of the two but Goldsmith is also guilty of re-using his own well walked on teritory, he just happened to re-use it more successfully to at least make it sound brand new again. That doesn't mean I'm dissing Tyler, I'm not. It just means I connected to Goldsmith's score in particular.
