Scores recorded in L.A. can be just as impressive, but it ultimately depends on the composer and project involved too. AFM isn't starving, since Fox and Sony still use them to record the scores for their Marvel superhero outings.
I think every MCU movie, save maybe IM1 (not sure on that one), was recorded in England. TA and Thor used the London Symphony Orchestra, CA: TFA was done in London's Air Studios, IM3 is using the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and IM2 recorded in London under Jon Debney.
