Indeed, synthesizers can be overused and ruin a film score and i am not a fan of Zimmer at all. I only like Gladiator and this was only selected pieces he did. Goldsmith used the analog synthisizers like the old ARP's which all had that warm sound and he cleverly used the sounds that really complimented the score but by no means i expect any composer to balance out synth, world instuments and a huge essemble like what Goldsmith did without sounding like Goldsmith. Explorers was a fine example of his use of synth. Legend is still his best to this day IMHO.
