The distribution is quite fair, hard to single out one year. Often there were many very good scores one year, then a great one and some nice ones the following year.

From 1999 (Phantom Menace, The Mummy, With Fire and Sword) to 2002 every year brought multiple wonders

1933 and 1977 are landmarks, to be sure

1989 is worth mentioning... (The Last Crusade, Batman, The Little Mermaid... a year like a candy basket)

If I could choose two adjacent years, I would pick 1980 & 1981, for Williams reasons alone

And If the last library of film scores was burning, I would head for 1980.

 

I cannot decide
