I agree. Though I'm really impressed by his work on "John Carter." I guess it just depends on where the score is recorded. His work on the third Indiana Jones score was lackluster to me, and that was back in 1989. "The Good Son" was okay too but I think it had artificial reverb added to it. I've been tinkering with reverb in Wavepad and I can hear the same artificial reverb in that score.
But, yeah, "John Carter" sounds impressive in terms of mixing.
