Mendelssohn was an early period Romantic composer who still favored much of the sensibilities from the Classical era. Nothing wrong with this of course, but his music does have some power behind it, but it is much lighter and bright than say Schumann or Wagner, but it's no less interesting.

Check out his symphonies 3 & 4, also called the "Scottish" and "Italian" symphonies respectively, to get a glimpse of his composing style. As mentioned, check out "Fingal's Cave" for a more introspective view of his work.
