Indiewire is an online magazine that primarily focusses on indie fare. Hence their selections of scores will reflect that. I'm actually surprised they managed to include as many traditional, conventional scores as they did.
I think the list is brilliant! Hardly a bad apple in the bunch.
Not a totally horrible list, but not a particularly good list either. At least this made me think of how my list would look like, something I am not quite sure of right now... LOTR may be the only obvious pick that would be on my list too, although I am sure I would include a Zimmer score too - at least if we exclude tv and game scores, maybe Inception over Interstellar, but I have trouble picking betwen them since they are both top 10 Zimmer scores.
