The most underrated being at JWFan. He is better than David Arnold or Alan Silvestri for example, and yet not treated with sufficient veneration. The most shameless blasphemers fail to see in him an equal to JW himself. Countermeasures must be taken. 

 

HTTYD is salvation!

As for that last quip, I can forgive people calling HTTYD "noise" if they've only heard the commercial albums for the first two scores. They're both incredibly tiring listens because of how loudly they were mastered. The Academy Awards promos sound much better.

Agreed.

I'd say this is baffling, but that's okay too. Powell is probably one of the few composers working in the industry today that makes me remember why I like film scores. Back in my teenage years that spot was filled by John Williams and today it's Powell, Giacchino and a few others that are the champions of the film music world.

Instead of piling on Frabulin, I’m gonna participate in the unpopular opinions thread.  I like Powell an awful lot, and probably rank him somewhere in the top 5 of living film composers, but am not a fan of the HTTYD scores at all, or the Bourne scores for that matter.

I will go to my grave exclaiming to people that it's the best score Powell has written yet.  Probably never to be bested!

Wookieepedia confirms it!

Are you referring to the tale of Jabba the Butt?

It might be his best solo score (no pun intended...)

Those that criticize him for being too loud lose the right to enjoy Indiana Jones music. Especially Temple of Doom.

 

Also, these “unpopular opinion” threads are just pedantic excuses to speak ill of the subject in question without having to bother offering compelling thought.

HTTYD is not noise.  The recordings can just get a tad noisy.  Have you heard Hubris, by any chance?  Or even Ferdinand?

I'm not going to say Powell is better than JW, or even that any of his scores are better than John's, but I will say that everything I've heard from Powell as of late has put a smile on my face.  It's good stuff, period.
