While I can agree that Sawano is indeed overhyped I do not think him not having his own recognizable style is necessarily true. No one abuses the hell out of an overblown orchestra like him. A lot of his tracks tend to have that completely unsubtle buildup where everything goes silent which leads a an incredibly bombastic opening melody. It's easy to pick him out though that being said I've already listened to basically all of his albums so i know what his tendencies are. But Attack on Titan and Kill la Kill still sound like two different animals to me. Attack on Titan has a much darker and brooding tone with a handful of cheesy vocal numbers giving the overwhelming presence the titans had in the show MUCH more definition. Meanwhile Kill la Kill was constantly upbeat with many jamming guitar/string numbers mixed with a heavy dose of electronica.
