    Uematsu absolutely decimated his period from 1994 to 2001. There is absolutely no competition, he understands what music appreciation is. I even play some of his weaker tracks and I'm elated and drooling...
     
     
    and it's not the type of example I'd normally use to show this composer off.

    I rarely listen. It was not a score I want to revisit much. To be honest its a lesser score than JP.

    Oomoog the Ecstatic got a reaction from HunterTech in Has Hans Zimmer aged well?   
    It's not that people don't like his music, its that they don't like how popular his style is in the industry, as if, "Want to be successful? Compose like Zimmer." Some composers throughout the centuries have written good music that's more digestible and popular than others. It doesn't mean it's great music.

    Maybe one should stop being so influenced by primitive prolificness and its ego-based fraud, and start embracing the true knowledge of collaboration and unification.
     
    So many great compositions of the 20th century. A real composer nowadays knows exactly what they're getting into, and they fervently serve the purpose of it despite the mob bosses cutting their checks and silencing their intelligence. Thumbs down to your predictable cat meme, although there is no thumbs down button.

    So much music has degraded what real music is about, that ideal balance and vision both sought and not excused by the developing errors that are the Classical and Romantic eras. Although like any genre, the Classical era has brought us beautiful creations, but music has become reimagined and restored by the likes of John Williams and other collaborators who have reached perfection in their certain works or songs. I wouldn't trade the last 100 years of music for anything; the imagination is, for lack of other terms, near perfect. This is because its roots going back even further, aren't just Classical, but a whole mix of things to be found and reinterpreted.

    Of course its tedious, but I suppose that depends on the propensity and capacity that people have (or do not have) to try and analyze their own tastes. Some will shrug it off "I just like it" whereas others will try and figure out exactly why they like it.
     
    That's when things get truly interesting, and its essentially the same as any critical discussion one can have about any piece of narrative art.

    It's an interesting perspective I never considered before, I don't agree with it but I think I can understand how at least in your framework it would work. I certainly value being able to have discussions with people who can qualify why they feel the way they do, I find discussions along the lines of 'I like this movie' 'why?' 'I dunno I just liked it' beyond tedium so I would definitely like more thought and care to be put into it, and you seem to be advocating that, so while I don't agree with your premise I do agree with your conclusion.

    Yep, agreed there. The distinction is that ‘faster’ isn’t a measurement of value but rather a measurement of fact, if that makes any sense.

    How should I know? It just hits all the right notes. I just enjoy 3 more because it hits so many wrong notes.

    If you can't defend your favorite being the best, then right off the bat, nobody cares what your favorite is. Your own judgment is pretty much meaningless and not worth the time.
     
    Of course for me, I don't know which Star Wars is the best. I might decide when I've watched them more and made up my own mind.

    I wonder if this untilted Spielberg score could unite all of Williams' achievements and skills into an epic new work. Like a Symphony no. 9 to give his career the next layer of context. It could be the biggest reveal! Something he's been meaning to communicate to us!
