Comments about the soundtrack for Windtalkers (James Horner)

I don't understand

The reviewer talks about the possibility of Windtalkers being a strong four-star score if he had included more ethnic native American elements. Quick question: why is it that we limit Horner and other composers to four stars while we just assume that every Williams score is going to be five unless some reason arises for it to be taken down? That really bothers me. It seems that people on this site have a very obvious bias to John Williams's music and don't really consider it possible that anyone else can create a masterpiece. I mean, think about it, every Star Wars soundtrack will be given 5 stars, no matter how much of a confused jumble of themes it is. I guarantee you Episode 3 will get 5 stars, even if it sounds like it was written by my little sister, simply because John Williams name is on the CD. I don't hate John Williams, I just hate how many breaks we give him. It seems very unfair to me.
