You really need to check out B:TAS Vol.1 and Vol. 2 from LLLR. If you haven't already.

I know Walker didn't score every ep. ,but she and her team wrote tons of great music for the show. The scores feel timeless and really captures the essence of the characters and stories, imho. It never feels "generic" or like a synth mockup unlike TDK trilogy scores. She and her team were able to come up with scores that feel "cinematic" in scope and performance but is really only performed by a small orchestra (a 40 piece orchestra I believe). Now that's talent right there. It really puts Zimmer's trilogy of batscores to shame. The B:TAS scores are pretty much what is lacking in the Zimmer batscores, imho.
