Arnold has his own style. Arnold's music sounds more bombastic than Barry. Barry certainly provided the edge to Bond music, but he also sounded delicate in the action cues. Arnold does not have Barry's delicacy. Perhaps, he has his own brand of delicacy (which can be heard in the early parts of "Miami International" with some electronic samplings which do not sound like Barry). Compared to Barry, his action cues sound more forceful, more like a "BAM! BAM! BAM!" thing. I hope you understand what I am saying. Arnold also gives a kind of electronic edge. As far as love themes and the James Bond theme goes, I dont really think there is any other classy way to score it other than going the way of John Barry. It is what that has made Bond scores a big standout. Arnold just arranges the orchestra in a way like Barry did to his Bond scores. This is the only similarity I can find. If you check out other scores like Stargate or Independence day, you will find that Arnold has his own style.
