Japanese VS Western music (94)

Soundtracks. Movies, anime, video games... sure, "the west" has the occasional prodigy (think Elmer Bernstein, Howard Shore, John Williams...) but most it produces still is watery junk or "ambient scores" (read: somebody holds a key on a pad synthesizer) and Japan wins by sheer numbers of awesome stuff if nothing else.

Also, I tend to like J-Trance more than its western counterparts, but I'd be more willing to recognize that as a matter of personal preference.
