The people who love this score probably are newbies to Media Ventures stlye and haven't heard pleanty of their other scores to notice that this is just another recycled score or haven't grown weary of thier style.

The people who hate this score probably heard alot of thier other works and are fed up with the same recycled themes, just like James Horner haters/fans.
