What really matters is whether the composer gets on base.

Jerry Fielding

Thinking about it, I really do enjoy all of Fielding's scores that have been released on album. That holds true even for his highly experimental efforts like Demon Seed and Escape from Alcatraz. I guess his music really speaks to me, and his scores work very well with the content for which they are written.

I'm yet to dislike a Patrick Doyle score.

...They were always professional, and they were always the best. An example is Goldsmith's Mr. Baseball. I hate that score, but it is perfect for the film.

An awful score that works well in the picture: this is another matter, just as a wonderful score combined with an awful picture.
Even Rozsa was disliked by someone, in writing DOUBLE INDEMNITY: a guy that quickly changed idea after the premiere. I think you answered the question: Goldsmith did let you down with "Mr.Baseball", and this is the clunker.

No, but Dario Marianelli, Alexandre Desplat, Jan A.P. Kaczmarek come pretty close.
Maybe someone like Laurent Eyquem but only because I have only heard two out of his three released scores and really like both of them.

Everytime Jerry Goldsmith wrote a score for a movie ,i was surprised.
Not only for the action music or beautifull theme music or in between.
For many fans as i love his music.
Legend is my favorite and hope for a rerecording.

Hmm, I collect practically everything by many film score composers. But 100% enjoyable, that would be Miklos Rozsa, Hugo Friedhofer, Alfred Newman, David Raksin and Andre Previn. I love many others, but they have their fair share of stinkers.

His score for The First $20 Million is the Hardest notwithstanding, I've gotta go with Marco Beltrami.

John Barry
I completely agree with MusicMad: there isn't a score (or non-film music) of his which I don't want to hear again. No other composer comes close ...
Of course there are scores I like more than others BUT there is NO score (or non-film music), I donĀ“t like.

No. I'm a something of a Morricone aficionado and I find some of his scores to be pretty much un-listenable.

Yes, I love nearly everything he did until about 1975, and then it's very hit or miss afterward.

Bernard Herrmann bats 95% for me. I don't love everything he did, but it's always worthy of another listen. Miklos Rozsa is my second choice, because although his music always moves me, it can sound a little dated and stuck in the Romantic mode.

I don't think it is very likely I will ever find one. Every composer has a tendency to write some music in certain styles that I can't really enjoy. Tuomas Kanelinen is quite talented but only a small number of his scores have been released on CD so it is hard to say if I really do like everything he has written. Christopher Gordon comes a lot closer than John Scott though.

I've yet to hear a Herrmann score that I don't love.

Goldsmith did let you down with "Mr.Baseball", and this is the clunker.

Well, it seems to me I would be the person to determine if Goldsmith let me down, and he didn't. He did his job and he did it well. Mr. Baseball is not a clunker at all. It is perfect for the film.
