I think that was not his point. I think his point was, that you can't know wether he has musical insight or not. He makes film scores that everybody likes, because that is necassery to make a film that everybody likes.
Thankyou. At least someone gets it.

He used it as an arguement to state hans zimmer was a good musician, he is not.
Opinion not fact. This is what im trying to tell you. Just because you dont like him, doesnt mean hes not good.
His music is bland and he overuses the same melodies. Most of his chord progressions are a single key up or down for that 'oh so moving' emotion on the piece wich isnt there just for that reason, its to obvious, to predictable..
Wait a sec. So predictable music is bad? Hate to break it to you, but every song which hits verse - chorus - verse - chorus is automatically bad? Thus making them not a musician. Well then every song you have no doubtly sang to is not a musician.
Something needs to be clear here again because i think people are reading past it over and over again going by some of your replies so ill say it once more: hans zimmer is very able with his tools, he has good sound, realistic etc blabla hifi etc, but when it comes to making something that suprises, something fresh and enjoyable he scores a giant 1 out of 10.
How much have you heard of him? You keep talking about he has this repetitive sound. The Rock sounds nothing like Days of thunder, nor The Di Vinci Code, nor POTC, nor Kung Fu Panda, nor Batman, nor Gladiator.
:Thus, again; he has no musical talent or we wouldve heard it by now, anyone that knows actual composers and their music (such as here we go again: bach, fauré, brahms, wagner etc.. and no it wasnt the pop music of its time thats pretty much what someone without any musical knowledge would say anyway) would chuckle at the combination of the words good musician and the name hans zimmer.
No music talent...you know what. You obviously have no idea what a film score should represent. One minute you go yeah, hes got talent with sounds and such. Then you go, he has none at all compared to Bach Faure blah blah blah blah. I appreciate those artists, I really do, I love Faure Pavane, its a fav of mine. But why cant you just have the balls to say "He's got skill at making movie scores but its not my taste." Instead of giving us a long winded biased excuse to why Hans Zimmer is bad and shouldnt be classed as a Musician whatsoever. Who are you to tell us who is a musician and who isnt?
