Yes, Yared's score is "better" if we can compare it to Horner's one at all. But it IS too bold for a Hollywood movie. And Yared himself could hardly change it. It's like the whole idea of his score was to create something monumental. His score is beautiful to listen to apart from film, maybe it's fabulous if you listen to it with the movie playing in the background. But it's not functional, it wouldn't support the movie.
