Here's what i wrote in another thread (Soundtrack by Inon Zur) newsbit.

Inon Zur's work can sometimes sound cluttered, he overlays tracks that are out of unison (delayed syncopation) he often uses 'attack' in backgrounds which leads to a muddled mid sound stage mass of unseperables, he obviously does this for 'emphasis' - but as we all know, emphasis can come from sweeter quiet periods as well. In other words, he can sometimes overdo it, he tries to fit in more than is sufficient.
Just my two pence opinion as a listener.
…………………………………………………………………………….
A bit critical and subjective on my part (and was all related to Dragon age - no other - i should have mentioned this) Inon Zurs ability was never in question. Indeed the application demands the requirement as he clearly indicates in that link, he has to go along with Bioware's instructions.

Here's some Icewind Dale soundtracks for comparison and shows Inon Zurs composer 'flexibility'.
