I think he means the actual QUALITY of the electronics, not the electronics themselves. I have not listened to this score, though I might give it a try on Spotify, so I can't give anything on the matter. However, I find that in some of his other reviews, most especially the James Bond scores, he really likes electronics. I think he just means that some composers make some bad electronics and some make some good.
