I hear this accusation all the time, but no one has been able to show
concrete proof such as CD time comparison or citing the actual passage
that were "blatantly ripped."

Just because John Williams and F91's composer ripped of the same guy
(Wagner) and Williams got famous for that style with Star Wars first
doesn't make him an original...
