It's probably not to the extent that you hope, but BW/B2W2 has slightly different route music depending on what season it is. I'd like to see Gen 5's dynamic music expanded upon and having different versions of the same track, as you said, would really help in making certain tracks not feel repetitive. Arceus knows how tired I am of the route music in SM/USUM. I also appreciate it when towns having different tracks for daytime and nighttime.Games like WoW, for example, have different versions of the same track to keep some variety. Pokémon should try that, I think.
Now, to answer the thread's question. I find the soundtrack of SWSH to be forgettable overall and although I gave it a 5/10, my true feelings might be worse than that. The only tracks I consistently listen to are the Battle Tower and Bede's battle theme. The first half of the Gym Battle track is great but the cheering ruins the rest of it. I like the Slumbering Weald in concept but something bothers me about it. Maybe the instruments? Marnie's battle theme is probably good but not my cup of tea. Oleana's battle theme is decent too, but something bothers me there too. If I were to describe it, I'd say that the SWSH soundtrack feels like the "first rough draft" before getting the final, polished version.
