I don't have enough Powell scores to really say how it compares with his other stuff. Powell's largely hit-or-miss with me, so I only have a few of his scores. There's definitely some Media Ventures influences like those staccato orchestra hits and such. Still, the score feels very vibrant to me and the finale track is just wonderful.

Ah, I had forgotten about Tears of the Sun... it bores me a bit, unfortunately. I like Out of Africa, but there's not much African influence there. And the main theme is nearly exactly the same as his own High Road to China, which I like better. I do need to check out A World Apart and Congo.

Have you heard his unreleased stuff from "Star Trek First Contact" like the Phoenix Flight track? Fantastic!
