You know the name of almost every track on the soundtrack. Now you may say its because Williams Superman theme is that iconic you don't need to know the other tracks. Well, I'm here to tell you it's because they aren't memorable. His main themes are great. The best ever. Zimmer is the better movie composer. His music can span over the course of a two hour film. The Last Samurai >> Any full album Williams has ever done.
