Post Overrated and Underrated Composers
Hello! What are some composers you think are overrated and what composers do you think are underrated?
Overrated: Andrew Lloyd Webber... Even though I adore many of his songs, he can be repetitive. There's a lot of hype about his songs, but not all deserve it.
Underrated: Ryan Scott Oliver... His music and lyrics are fantastic, I'm obsessed. Jason Robert Brown... Totally deserved those Tony awards for Parade and Bridges of Madison County. He's amazing.

You have suffered enough and warred with yourself, it's time that you won.
