So writing a challenging score to sing is a "shortcoming"? Interesting...never realized that was a liability. Perhaps Sondheim's challenging and complicated lyrics that can be a nightmare to remember or to get rhyhmically correct make him second-rate as well?

In terms of lyrics not sitting correctly, that is a criticism for ALW's lyricists, not him. He generally writes the scores first with lyrics to follow.

You have every right to your own biases about ALW's alleged "shortcomings" as a composer but why not just come out and say you loathe his work? Writing a score that is a difficult sing or being blamed for placing lyrics you never wrote is hardly a fair criticism.
