I'm not a fan of McCarthy's work overall, but he's had a few good scores.
Oh, I think he's a terrific composer when given free rein. As evidenced by his early TNG work and the massively underrated Generations.
His scores in the first few seasons were exceptional, I particularly liked his reoccurring Picard's theme. Generations is a great soundtrack too but doesn't reach the heights of a Goldsmith score for me.
When they finally let the composers do their jobs in seasons 3 & 4 of Enterprise Jay Chattaway really ran away with it while McCarthy's scores seemed lacking in comparison (Azati Prime/Damage cliffhanger and resolution being an example)
