(SPOILER) Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Season 2 Begins. Bear McCreary explains the changes in musical choices in the AoS score from season 1 to season 2.

Subtler would be better. First season was brutal.
I still found the music jarring in places during yesterday's episode. It's just so in your face at times.
I eat these up. I love hearing the reason Bear did certain things in certain scenes. I'm still blown away with how he composed the Cellist's theme after the facts based on how Amy had moved her hands.
I randomly watched an episode of Human Target, maybe because Amy Acker was guest starring and I found the score too overwhelming there like the musicians were characters on the show and not in a good way. However with BSG McCreary's score's oddness and difference is part of what made the show indelible too me. In the first season of the show did have a lot of moments of triumphant themes I believe accented with horns but I think that was also because SHIELD was supposed to be the white knight government representatives. Now they are in the shadows so it does seem like there will be change towards more subtlety hopefully.
I don't think I have ever been more irritated by the music of a tv show than I was for SHIELD season 1. I'm really glad to hear that he is changing things up.
