Right now, Bear McCreary is number one. His work on BSG was so original, creative, emotional, different, powerful, memorable... I have the soundtracks and never grow tired of hearing them. He's made a powerful impact and really showed how great music can impact a TV series.
I just know I'm gonna get flamed for this, but I found his work dull, uninspired and lifeless. The only things he did remotely right was the re-orchestration of the classic theme and the snippets thereof that were used (such as in the final episode).
I know he did it at Moore's insistance, but Moore obviously caught a case of "tin ear" from Berman with his "minimalist" musical philosophy.
