True, but I can't imagine Goldsmith ever composing anything like Williams' scores for Close Encounters of the Third Kind or Catch Me If You Can.
I don't know. Goldsmith had quite a range. Compare his score for Planet of the Apes to his score for TMP. Totally different approaches, styles, etc. And he excelled at both.

However, that's not to say that I think he's better than John Williams. I would be hard pressed to say I think one or the other is better. I can't imagine Goldsmith improving upon Williams' Superman score, for example. But neither can I imagine Williams improving on Goldsmith's score for TMP.
